The Rookie Season 4 Episode 8 Recap
Episode 8, titled ‘Hit and Run,’ starts with Detective Angela Lopez losing her mind over her husband working for a nefarious crime boss. On top of that, he is unwilling to let her help him, which further enrages her. She accompanies Officer Nolan to investigate an assault allegation. The victim is an IRS agent who was attacked by a man claiming to be sovereign. Meanwhile, Sergeant Bradford’s sister Gennifer arrives in town to discuss their father, but he is in no mood to talk.
Gennifer wants to sell their father’s house, and for that, she needs Bradford to help her fix it up. She has plans to upgrade the house and increase the selling price. Elsewhere, Lopez and Nolan visit the assailant Marvin Reynolds’ house to question him about the alleged assault. When they search his house, they find several weapons that imply a terrorist attack. After confiscating his arsenal, they find out about another man named Cooper Sanford, who is the one introducing Reynolds to the idea of identifying as a radical sovereign.
Lopez and Nolan confront Cooper at a garden, and just as he is about to run, Lopez tackles him. However, she does it as a way of channeling out her frustrations. When Nolan points that out to her, she immediately apologizes. The pair realize that Reynolds has been planning to kill as many people as possible, which is why the whole city is after him. Gennifer discloses that their father is dying, but Bradford is excessively hurt and traumatized to even want to see him again.
Bradford had been severely abused as a child, so he does not want to go down that lane again. The police eventually find Reynolds near the Navy ship museum where he used to work. He is then killed when he tries to fire at the police. Bradford understands that his sister needs him and even gets Nolan to help with renovations. Bradford endorses Nolan for the next union rep while Lopez’s husband walks up to Sergeant Grey and agrees to become an informant.
