Rookie Blue” Season 6 Episode 8 “Integrity Test” aired last Wednesday, July 1, 2015, at 9:00 p.m. on Global. In this episode, Officer Dov Epstein (Gregory Smith), Officer Gail Peck (Charlotte Sullivan), Officer Nick Collins (Peter Mooney) and Officer Andy McNally (Missy Peregrym) concocted a plan in order to clear Staff Sergeant Oliver Shaw’s (Matt Gordon), to  arrest Commissioner Alonso Santana (Richard Chevolleau), and to catch whoever was working with him in the 15th Division. Meanwhile, Detective Traci Nash (Enuka Okuma) kept tabs on her boyfriend after the surprising revelation from the previous episode. All of this led to a surprising conclusion, and more secrets were revealed during the course of the episode. Read on to learn more about this episode.

The episode began with Detective Traci Nash (Enuka Okuma) getting surprised. It was after waking up and realizing that her boyfriend, Detective Steve Peck (Adam MacDonald) was watching her sleep. As he went to take a shower, she decided to look through his phone and it didn’t have enough time to search for anything suspicious.

At Staff Sergeant Oliver Shaw’s (Matt Gordon) house, Commissioner Alonso Santana (Richard Chevolleau) came over. He offered him a good head of security job at a big corporation. In exchange for this, Santana would bury the investigation so that Oliver wouldn’t be charged with anything.

At the 15th division, Sam Swarek (Ben Bass) told Officer Andy McNally (Missy Peregrym) that he was going to talk to Oliver one more time as he knew that Oliver was still hiding something else from them.

Inside, Officer Juliet Ward (Erin Karpluk) admitted to Officer Nick Collins (Peter Mooney) that she Internal Affairs, which caused him to feel betrayed.

During the morning’s parade, Inspector John Jarvis (Oliver Becker) informed everyone that he would be sitting in as Oliver’s replacement for the meantime. Santana asked Officer Dov Epstein (Gregory Smith) and Andy to help him pull case files which had all happened while Oliver was Staff Sergeant. The inspector then asked Officer Chris Diaz (Travis Milne) to be his aide for the meantime.

Later, Officer Gail Peck and Nick decided to help Dov and Andy with whatever they were planning on doing. After bringing Juliet into the loop, they decided to feed false information to Officer Duncan Moore (Matthew Owen Murray), Santana’s stepson, that a friend of Ted McDonald’s, a man named Kyle Mason. He will be portrayed by Nick’s wheelchair bound older brother, had a copy of several incriminating hard drives.

Santana then took the bait after Duncan told him this after his stepfather told him that he wasn’t a “real cop.” He sat in during Andy’s interrogation of Nick’s brother. Later, after Andy tried following Santana, he revealed to Andy that Oliver had accepted the Staff Sergeant promotion and reinstated Duncan as part of the deal he had made which allowed Andy to keep her job.

Meanwhile, Traci and Steve went to a gang related homicide, in which Steve reacted differently from usual. Afterwards, he went to the apartment of a man named Troy Baxter, whose name had been yelled out by the victim. Traci then became suspicious of Steve, who refused to give her a good explanation for his current behavior and actions.

At a bar, Sam tried to talk to Oliver, who refused at first as he had felt betrayed by Sam. After Sam told him of his suspicions regarding Santana, Oliver told him that taking the security job would be the safest and best thing for him to do. He knew that Internal Affairs would discover that Santana, who had been his training officer, had asked him to lose a couple of files before, and that he had asked Santana to help him get rid of the murder charge.

Gail and Nick, in the meantime, were at the warehouse where they had planted the fake hard drives. However, they left as they had to respond to a call that dispatch had placed. Because of this, Andy decided to go there herself and instructed Dov to stay put in the division.

Later, Traci learned that Homicide Division managed to catch the real culprit thanks to Steve’s tip. Afterwards, he told Traci that the victim and Troy Baxter had both been his criminal informants.

After Andy got to the warehouse, she discovered Steve looking for the hard drives, as he had been sent by Santana to pick it up. He then revealed that he was the one who had planted the bomb. He told her that he had tried to get out of his situation to keep Traci safe. After leaving the building, he discovered Gail and Nick who had been by the door the entire time. They then brought him in, and they arrested Santana thanks to his testimony.

Gail felt betrayed and shocked by what her brother had done, and Traci broke up with him.

Jarvis then told Chris that he knew that he had been seeing his wife, and was alright with it. Officer Chloe Price (Prisicilla Faia) also told Dov that she couldn’t accept his suggestion of just being friends.

Later, Oliver was told that he had been cleared of all charges. However, neither he or Andy looked particularly enthusiastic about it.

And that was all for the recap of “Rookie Blue” Season 6 Episode 8 “Integrity Test.” For more news, updates and recaps on “Rookie Blue” and other television shows, keep on following Movie News Guide (MNG).
