Previously, we told you what to expect from season 4 episode 2. Now let’s see what The Rookie Season 4 Episode 3 is going to look like.

Before we do that, let’s recap episode 2.


Episode 2 saw the force back in action despite all the chaos that had ensued previously. This episode also had a guest star, Tricia Helfer!

Tricia Janine Helfer is a Canadian actress and former model who played the role of Claire Ivey in season 4 episode 2 of The Rookie.

A significant development was that the division gained a new rookie. Aaron Thorsen, portrayed by Tru Valentino, is the newcomer on the team. He is very uptight and always carries the weight of the world on his shoulders.

Our main man John Nolan took a huge leap and revealed that he wanted to become a training officer by the following year!

Things are looking up for Bradford as he finally got promoted! He is now a Sergeant and got to lead his first roll call.

Claire Ivey turned out to be a criminal who has been eluding the police for many years. She has gotten away with almost 40 crimes. But Chen can’t seem to control her development of a teeny-weeny crush on Claire!

This and lots more happened on season 4 episode 2 of The Rookie! It was intense, jaw-dropping, and left us wanting more!
