Last week on Rookie Blue, we saw the aftermath of the break up between Andy and Luke when they had to work together on a case. Andy & Swarek got called to the house of a young woman who claimed her house had been broken into. At first, it didn’t look like it was anything except her panties stolen, but then they were called back shortly after, and when they got there, they found the woman taped up and gagged on the stairs, and that puts them onto a case from three years prior, where a man committed the same crime against a police rookie. It was Luke’s case back then, so he is immediately called in on this one, and he insists they go talk to the man who they thought did the crime three years before (a military man. 🙁 ).

Turns out, Luke was right, but they almost figured it out too late, when Andy decided to trust Luke the cop, even though she couldn’t trust Luke the fiance anymore. She nearly got killed by the total sicko (like…I think he was hearing voices and talking to himself…multiple personalities or just schizophrenic?), before Luke was finally able to subdue him. Meanwhile, Andy told everyone that she and Luke were taking a break to get some space, but Swarek didn’t buy it. He confronted her and said something about Luke cheating on her. She asked how he knew, and he said anyone who cared about her would know. (*squee* thank you very much) It was perfect, then, at the end of the episode, when Andy was going home with Traci to stay on her couch, when Traci admitted she saw past the “space” excuse, too, and knew Luke must have cheated. *sigh* It was such a great tie in to Swarek knowing and his comment. I just loved it.

On tonight’s episode, Division 15 is thrown into a panic when a seemingly drunk man that Gail and Traci bring in collapses from a mysterious illness, and everyone is placed under a quarantine. Meanwhile, Andy and Swarek team up to apprehend and book an unusual suspect in a brutal bank robbery – a man covered with blue dye. But will they uncover the identity of his violent partner? And as time ticks down, the squad grows increasingly nervous about the quarantine, with Gail worrying about her exposure to the sick man. Also, Dov’s first date with a sexy bomb technician ends in a thrilling takedown.

In last night’s episode of Big Brother, Jeff and Rachel were up on the block, and in a close veto race between Jeff and Adam, Jeff just managed to eek out a win. He, of course, took himself off the block, and in a stupid move, Lawon offered himself up not only for a replacement nominee, but for eviction! So Kalia stupidly put Lawon up as the replacement nominee (one of her own alliance!). I really don’t understand why Lawon offered himself up for eviction—he wants to take advantage of tonight’s mystery twist, but he doesn’t even know how it is going to work and just assumes he will re-enter the house “more powerful.”

On tonight’s episode, we find out which of Rachel and Lawon is evicted. I really hope Lawon & Kalia’s stupid move didn’t mess things up, and that Rachel is the person who is eliminated! Her whiny voice and constant crying is so annoying, and I cannot wait until she is voted off the show (again). Also, in tonight’s twist, America has voted between previously-evicted houseguests Keith, Cassi, Dominic, and Brendon, and the winner will have a chance to re-enter the house. The America’s Vote winner will compete with tonight’s evicted houseguest, and the winner of that challenge will return to the house.

I hope America has not voted to bring back Brendon, as he would probably win any challenge against Lawon; or if he is up against Rachel, he would probably throw the competition to let her stay in the house. America, please have voted to bring Dominic back, so he can clear out the last of the duos and return order to the Big Brother house!

Week after week, I fall deeper in love with Rookie Blue. It has such a perfect balance of the case and the relationship side of things in each episode that I never go away unhappy. Last week’s episode was intense, and I was on the edge of my seat, waiting to see who was going to save Andy. I am so happy that everyone knows what an ass Luke is, but I was also really upset with Sam for the way he got angry at Andy. It’s partially his fault she ever got taken captive. Get back to yourself Sam and win Andy’s heart!

On tonight’s episode, the division is quarantined when a suspect presumed drunk collapses due to an unknown disease. Elsewhere, a bank-robbery suspect is apprehended covered in blue dye, but the officers have trouble finding his violent accomplice.

Tune in to ABC at 10/9c to see who has to be quarantined and how they deal with it. Learn where to find episodes online of Rookie Blue @ Clicker.

Last week’s episode of Burn Notice was really good. The storyline with the dad who wouldn’t give his son back to his wife was kind of emotional. The dad flipped out when his brother was killed overseas in the military, and had become extremely paranoid that someone was out to get him and his son—and he just knew it was someone from the government. He got hooked up with a radical militia group, which made his paranoia and craziness even stronger and harder for Michael to get through. He eventually did, though, and they were able to rescue the kid before any harm came to him. I did have to wonder, though… They left the dad there in the camp after setting up the head of the militia group to be away from the compound so they could go in and rescue the boy. When the guy and his followers got back and the dad was there but the kid was gone, I just KNEW they were going to kill him. He was fully prepared for anything. But we learned that he was fine—he’d gone to the hospital to be treated for his broken leg.

In addition to that, they spent time trying to spy on the guy who looked like Michael (although, he doesn’t look anything like Michael to me, but whatever…), and when they see some gang bangers arrive at the house, Fiona and Sam have to break in and rescue the schmuck. Eventually, they get the guy to admit he took odd jobs from some guy, but had no idea what they really were about. They got the name of the boss, set up a meet for him to meet with the lookalike, and planned to send Michael instead. When Michael got to the boat, there was a note that said to sail off into the sunset and meet elsewhere, but Michael realized there was something hinky and did a search, finding a bomb in the boat. He set the timer, set it adrift, and watched from afar as it exploded.

One of my favorite parts of the episode, though, had to be when Maddie was talking to the “kidnapped” kid’s mother. She told the woman she understood about marrying the wrong man and how she regretted not leaving Michael’s father. When the woman asked how everything would work for the boy without his father around, Michael shared a look with his own mother and basically said the kid would be ok because he has a mother who loves him. It was so freakin touching. lol I loved it. 🙂

Tonight, Michael and Jesse join Agent Pearce for a CIA extraction mission on a Caribbean island, but an army of mercenaries makes it impossible for them to leave. Meanwhile, Fiona does a favor for a powerful ex in order to get information for Michael. Gavin Rossdale guest stars as Armand, Fiona’s ex.

Tonight is the second part of the season finale for So You Think You Can Dance, and the winner is going to be crowned. Last night, the dancers gave it their all, but at times, fell short. I’d love to say that it’s anyone’s game, but I believe that Melanie has a crazy lead on everyone.

During tonight’s results show, like years before, we’ll be treated to some of the best routines from the season. Also, our Top 10 dancers will be back to perform those routines, and I’m sure a couple great group numbers.

Tune in to FOX at 8/7c for the 2 hour finale to see who takes home the big prize and the title of America’s favorite dancer. Learn where to find episodes online of So You Think You Can Dance @ Clicker.
