The Rookie Season 4 Episode 8 Recap

Episode 8, titled Hit and Run, begins with Detective Angela Lopez losing her mind because her husband works for a nefarious crime boss. Plus, he’s not ready to let her help him, which makes her even angrier. She accompanies Officer Nolan to investigate the assault allegation. The victim is a tax inspector who was attacked by a man who claimed to be the sovereign. Meanwhile, Sergeant Bradford’s sister Gennifer arrives in town to talk about her father, but he’s in no mood to talk.

Gennifer wants to sell her father’s house, so she needs Bradford’s help with the renovations. She plans to modernize the house and increase the selling price. Elsewhere, Lopez and Nolan visit the home of attacker Marvin Reynolds to question him about the alleged attack. During a search of his house, they find several weapons that indicate a terrorist attack. After confiscating his arsenal, they learn from another man named Cooper Sanford who suggested Reynolds identify himself as a radical sovereign.

Lopez and Nolan confront Cooper in a garden, and just as he is about to run away, Lopez attacks him. However, she only does this to get rid of her frustration. When Nolan points this out, she apologizes immediately. The two realize that Reynolds planned to kill as many people as possible, which is why the whole town is after him. Gennifer informs them that their father is dying, but Bradford is too hurt and traumatized to even want to see him again.

Bradford was badly abused as a child, so he doesn’t want to go down this path again. Police eventually find Reynolds near the Navy Ship Museum where he used to work. When he tries to shoot the police officers, he is killed. Bradford understands that his sister needs him and even gets Nolan to help with the renovations. Bradford assists Nolan in the election of the next union representative, while Lopez’s husband approaches Sergeant Gray and agrees to become an informant.
