Rookie Blue Round Table: "The Girlfriend Experience"
Gail took on a major undercover assignment in "The Girlfriend Experience." Did she pull it off? Or just put herself in danger?
Christine Orlando of TV Fanatic is joined for this edition of the Round Table by Kathryn, Nathalie and Heather from the Two Worlds Collide Fan Forum. These Rookie Blue fans decide what Jerry's so worried about, identify the mysterious attacker and decide whether the Foxy Brown of undercover escorts stole the show.
Join in the fun and add your answers to the comments below.
What was your favorite scene?
Kathryn: Tie between the Sam/Jerry Best Man talk and Noelle demonstrating how to create the "girlfriend experience" with Oliver.
Nathalie: The "best man" scene between Jerry and Sam! They looked so happy and relaxed, it was needed in that heavy episode.
Heather: Normally, I'd pick a Sam and Andy scene, but I have to say I adored the scene with Noelle and Oliver playing escort and john. They are both fabulous! Sam and Andy both looked HOT... and I hope we get more scenes with them in coming episodes.
Christine: Noelle and Oliver were fantastic in the role playing scene. This unlikely couple sitting there in their uniforms just talking made for one hot couple. It's all in the attitude.
Who is the attacker?
Kathryn: I'm not sure except I don't think it will be Gail's "date." The guy Jerry fights in the Global promo looks most like the cab driver to me, so I'll go with him as my theory.
Nathalie: Either Gavin (the hotel security manager) or the cab driver that drove Gail to Andy's. I'll say Gavin.
Heather: I can't make up my mind! I go back and forth between creepy Charlie and the bartender.
Christine: The cab driver makes the most sense because he'd know where he dropped her off but they set it up so that there are several suspects which is always fun.
Should Nick and Gail move on to a real relationship or just keep tainting the evidence room?
Kathryn: I think they seem like Andy and Sam's early days all over again where both are in denial about what they really want. They should go for it or call it quits. The friends with benefits thing doesn't seem like it's working anymore. I did get a huge kick out of Gail's jealous power play with the other blonde officer, though.
Nathalie: For now their relationship is okay but sooner or later they'll either have to stop it or to move it to the next level.
Heather: They both just need to grow up and decide what they really want. I think that's what Gail was planning, but I'm looking forward to finding out how all of this affects them.
Christine: I don't think the friends with benefits thing is working for either of them and I'm guessing that's what Gail wanted to tell Nick. Now we may never know.
Jerry looked so worried when Traci turned down the boat. Is a boat just a boat or is he afraid of something else?
Kathryn: Jerry is adorable when he's in romance mode. I think he's definitely worried there's more to it, and he may not be wrong. I think Traci does still have a few mixed feelings about marriage. Speaking of which, what the heck is up with Swarek's wedding attitude? Is is really just male pride about the flying fear? I get that given that Andy went skydiving, but something seemed off with him.
Nathalie: I hadn't thought about that actually! He might be worried she's not into this wedding and she just agreed because she was taken aback by his speech in the previous episode.
Heather: I'm so afraid for Jerry and Traci. I love them as a couple, but I see all kinds of foreshadowing that there is trouble ahead.
Christine: Traci seems all in but I think Jerry's got reason to be worried. Nevermind the boat, I don't think they'll make it to the altar.
What did you think of Gail's undercover work?
Kathryn: I LOVED Gail in this episode!! She looked stunning, but her early nervousness reminded me of her surprising stage fright phobia. And I'm actually not surprised she had more trouble with being an escort than a street walker. She doesn't do genuine even in her real life relationships, using the whole "try to be sexy" thing that Noelle was telling her to drop instead. So no wonder she felt out of her depth.
Nathalie: She was really nervous but I think she nailed it, especially when she discretely signaled she was in P3 in the parking lot!
Heather: I think Gail rocked these scenes! She was amazingly tough and vulnerable and went all out in the fight scene. I just love her.
Christine: I like Gail more ever week and think she did a great job. Especially when her date decided to change things up and go for a ride. She went with it but still managed to maintain some control.
