By Jim Donnelly Jul 18, 2014

Welcome to the Rookie Report for the "Two Truths and a Lie" episode of Rookie Blue. Here you’ll find highlights, insights and memorable moments involving the recent activities of the coppers of 15 Division. WARNING: There are spoilers here. Enjoy!

Learning to Share: Sam and Andy head off to have a chat with a few inmates regarding their latest cases. The ride over to the prison is a bit awkward. Andy suggests they play a game called “two truths and a lie.” One of three things stated by a player is actually a lie. It’s Andy’s way of trying to get Sam to say what’s bugging him. It doesn’t work. Andy begins to realize why Sam is acting so out of sorts. She confronts him about it.


Sam, I Am: One of the inmates on the list of those they were to interview has the last name of Swarek. Jay Swarek to be exact. He’s Sam’s father. Andy and Sam head inside the prison to talk to the one man who may be able to shed some light on a few things. Jay Swarek is less-than-forthcoming with information. He’s more interested in taunting Sam. That’s fine. Sam can take it. In fact, the visit actually becomes a turning point for him.


Dex Appeal: Traci is ticked when her ex, Dex, is MIA for a Leo pickup. It’s because he was in a bar fight. Steve pays him a visit at the hospital. The two of them verbally spar about the custody situation with Leo. Later, Dex shows up at the station. Traci lets him know that no one will ever love Leo like the two of them do. They have a nice moment together that Steve witnesses from afar.

Not a Chip Off the Old Block: Sam lied to make sure his dad would be sent to prison so he’d stop hurting his family. Andy assures Sam that he’s nothing like his dad. The two of them declare that they love each other. A short time later, they are in bed together playing one more round of “two truths and a lie” – the clothing optional version.
