“Rookie Blue” Season 6 Episode 6 or Season 5 Episode 17 “Home Run” aired on Global at 10:00 PM on June 24, 2015 on Global. In this episode, as the entire division worked to figure out who had opened fire at them and the children of a community in the middle of an outreach baseball game, Detective Steve Peck (Adam MacDonald) discovered that he had the perfect opportunity to bring down a gang leader he had been working hard to bring down.

However, Officer Gail Peck (Charlotte Sullivan) realized that something wasn’t at all what it seemed, and strove to find out the truth. Meanwhile, Officer Andy McNally (Missy Peregrym) and Detective Sam Swarek (Ben Bass) went out on a romantic weekend, which ended in a big surprise. Finally, it was revealed who Officer Juliet Ward (Erin Karpluk) was working for, and what she was doing there. Read on to learn more about this episode.

The episode began with Officer Andy McNally (Missy Peregrym) following Officer Juliet Ward (Erin Karpluk), whom she had seen getting into a car with an unknown male, while jogging with Officer Chris Diaz (Travis Milne) who kept on complaining about the fact that Jamie Toth (Cindy Sampson) wouldn’t stop stalking him.

Back at the station, Andy met up with Detective Sam Swarek (Ben Bass), as they had Staff Sergeant Oliver Shaw’s (Matt Gordon) cabin by the lake for a much deserved romantic getaway, which they soon got to.

Meanwhile, inside the station, Officer Gail Peck (Charlotte Sullivan) became nervous about her brother, Detective Steve Peck’s (Adam MacDonald) interview with Sophie’s case worker, but to her surprise, he covered for her lack of outreach spirit by telling the case worker that Gail had helped organize the outreach baseball game that they were all attending at a community that was constantly barraged by gang wars. All of them participated except for Officers Duncan Moore (Matthew Owen Murray) and Officer Chloe Price (Priscilla Faia), who were on duty that day.

Because of that, Gail, after noticing that the case worker had indeed passed by the game, made the effort to pass around jerseys. Meanwhile, Juliet was introduced to Oliver’s good friend, Noelle Williams (Melanie Nicholls-King).

Meanwhile, Andy and Sam had to stop on the way as Andy thought that they had hit a bird, and ended up stepping into some poison ivy, which made them itch. In order to distract herself, Andy told Sam that she believed that Juliet was a mole for a biker gang, but he told her to let it go.

When they got to the cabin, they discovered that some animals had broken into it, and a very annoyed Andy had to settle with helping Sam scrub the place.

Back at the game, things were going well, until Gail spotted a suspicious car, and yelled at everyone to duck just as somebody began shooting at the players, and hit two teenagers. Gail then comforted Michie Brewer (Zahra Bentham), whose boyfriend had been hit.

As one of the victims was the little brother of a rival gang of Boz Shepherd’s (Anthony Grant), Steve immediately picked him up as it was his SUV that had driven by during the shooting. However, it turned out that he had an alibi. However, after talking to Michie, Gail got her to identify Boz as the shooter, and a witness earlier who told them that Boz’s alibi checked out recanted. However, Gail felt a bit off about the situation, and thanks to Chloe, who found a leaked video of Michie taken by her downed boyfriend that had gone viral, realized that it had been Michie’s brother who had shot at Michie’s boyfriend because of it. However, because of that, Boz was released, much to Steve’s chagrin. Afterwards, the case worker brought Sophie to Gail to cheer her up.

Meanwhile, at the cabin, Sam told Andy that he wanted things to be perfect, and got down on one knee and proposed to her, which she accepted.

Later, after they slept with each other, Andy asked him what he knew about Juliet. It turned out that he had gotten bothered by what Ted McDonald had said about corruption within the force, and Commissioner Santana. He then had to a good friend at Internal Affairs, Noelle, about it, who had sent Juliet in.

Back at the station, Juliet began giving Noelle names such as Duncan, Inspector Jarvis, and Chris, but Noelle knew she was just bluffing, as she didn’t like the intelligence that she was getting. Finally, Juliet warned her that she wasn’t going to like this, but she had discovered that someone had used their key card to enter the evidence locker twenty minutes before it blew up- Oliver Shaw.
