'Rookie Blue' Recap And Review: 'Two Truths And A Lie' - Sam's Father Comes Back To Haunt Him

'Rookie Blue' Recap And Review: 'Two Truths And A Lie' - Sam's F
Sam Swarek hasn't had a lot to do so far in the new season of Rookie Blue, so we're due for an episode that puts him back in the spotlight. And given that the series made a point of introducing Sam's estranged sister to us in the first few installments, it's no surprise that Sam's A-story also involves his family - namely, his ne'er do well father. It's time to get a big glimpse into what makes Sam tick.

Picking up where last week's episode left off, it's up to Sam to discover who killed Brian Gowdy, the man we previously just thought was in Costa Rica. Oliver thinks we're looking at "a se...

Our favorite summer show Rookie Blue is back, which means that we can get answers to a lot of questions - the most important being what's going to happen to newly minted detective Sam Swarek.

Ben joined us for a chat recently to discuss his reaction to Sam's predicament, what's ahead in Season 5, and adding yet more new faces to the 15 Division roster.

SPOILER ALERT - If you're not caught up through Season 4 of Rookie Blue, or absolutely don't want to know anything going into tonight's season premiere, stop reading now and come back on Thursd...

It wouldn't be another season of Rookie Blue without Ben Bass. As the tough yet wisecracking Sam Swarek, Ben is at the heart of the show, and he's captured the hearts of the audience, too. BFTV recently caught up with Ben to ask him about Sam's promotion to detective, his changing relationship with Andy, and what he thinks would be Sam's happy ending.

"It took me three years to get used to the uniform and then they took me out of it. I was kind of disappointed actually," he commented with a laugh, referring to the reveal of Sam's promotion in the fourth-season premiere. "It was a bit of an...

Rookie Blue
TV's most entertaining cop drama is back! ABC starts airing the fourth season of Rookie Blue tonight, picking up not far from where it left the characters of 15 Division last summer. BFTV caught up with series star Missy Peregrym, who plays Officer Andy McNally, to ask how Andy has been since viewers saw her departing for an undercover operation, and if there's hope that Andy might get back together with ex-flame Sam Swarek.

When the audience reconnects with Andy in tonight's episode, "I think she feels pretty good about where she's at in her life," Missy told us. "She's been undercover fo...

Rookie Blue
Continuing our chats with the cast of ABC's police drama Rookie Blue, actor Ben Bass dropped by Wednesday to talk about what's in store for Sam Swarek in season two, and if not being the "rookie" on the show is all it's cracked up to be.

If you missed them, you can check out my earlier interviews with Rookie Blue stars Enuka Okuma (Traci Nash) and Missy Peregrym (Andy McNally).

Let's start with the basics: what are some of the things in store for Sam in season two?

There's more action. It's more intense. What goes on between Sam and Andy starts to heat up, even though Luke is in th...
