The Rookie Season 3 Episode 7 Recap

The 7th episode of the third season, named ‘True Crime,’ stays true to its title. In the episode, the gang gets roped into the world of a true-crime docuseries. The entire ordeal involves interviewing everyone who is a part of the case and incorporating different parts of the investigation from normal camera work, body cams, and security footage. The end result is a kind of experience that can truly be compared to an actual true-crime documentary.

The case focuses upon a former child star, Corey of ‘Paul’s Place,’ who is accused of murdering his former co-star during the filming of his hit childhood show. The episode is a mix of scenes from different points of time for audiences to slowly understand and make sense of what truly happened. It is revealed that Corey felt frustrated when he was out of work after his TV show ended. This eventuated the formation of a criminal cult (with actual criminals) hiding under the disguise of an acting school. Corey had convinced a man nicknamed the Southland Stalker to take his acting class so he could learn how to commit murder with more ease.

At the crime scene, the team finds a screenplay called ‘The Worthy.’ The script had been penned by both Corey and his co-star Charlotte. But Corey wanted to take full credit, which ultimately riled up Charlotte. The rookies think that the script is terrible. Hence, Corey’s mother, in the end, confesses to murdering and dumping Charlotte, whom she’d known since she was a child. This results in Corey being let off, but the accomplice of the Southland Stalker finds him and kills him brutally.
