The Rookie Season 3 Episode 5 Recap
In the fifth episode of the season, titled ‘Lockdown,’ Nolan lives up to his reputation as a “trouble magnet,” as he finds himself trapped in a hostage situation. The man who takes him hostage, Graham Porter, is doing so to blackmail the police into releasing another convict who is serving a life sentence for murder and possession of drugs. This causes the whole police station to go into lockdown. However, things turn around when they realize that it was all just a big distraction so that Porter’s girlfriend, Kelsey, could steal back the records of her fingerprints from the evidence locker.
As for Angela’s situation, the amnio test results come back negative for Fragile X Syndrome. Matters between Jackson and Stanton reach a boiling point, and the former wants to ensure that a cop like Stanton is taken off the force. After several brush-ups with Jackson, Stanton not only threatens to end his career but also leads him into a dangerous situation that could cost Jackson his life. Following the threat of Jackson reporting him to International Affairs for his racist behavior, Stanton pretends to repent and then turns off his body cam. Stanton then leads Jackson into a situation that gets him targeted and brutally beaten by four men.
Stanton only feigns concern when Chen and Bradford show up, claiming that he lost track of Jackson. When he leans close to check on an injured Jackson, he does not expect Jackson to do what he does. Jackson turns on Stanton’s body cam, knowing that it has recorded the last two minutes. The camera footage confirms that he did nothing to save Jackson and nor did he call for backup. Although Jackson took a big risk, he finally managed to do what no one else had been able to do. And with that, Stanton’s badge and gun are taken away as an official investigation is set in motion.
