Season One, Episode Six, Bullet Proof
Original Air Date: July 29, 2010
Williams and Nash foil a carjacking that endangers the life of a baby and in the process manage to arrest a prime suspect in a murder that happened a week ago. The suspects partner is still at large. Catching him and linking the suspect to the murder is the focus of this weeks main case. McNally gets Detective Callaghan to convince Swarek to loan her to Homicide for his case. Epstein and Nash are assigned to going through impounded vehicles and cataloging every item they find in them. When McNally loses a witness, Benny, who has evidence in the case, she calls Swarek for help.
Peck and Diaz are partnered in this episode and it seems like she wants to do everything in her power to make him miserable for the day. When he asks her why she's so mean she just laughs at him. Her mood quickly turns when they respond to a vehicle vs. bicycler accident. When they end up catching a murderer something surprising happens between Peck and Diaz: they hook up! Peck and Diaz. Nice guy and mean girl. I guess opposites really do attract. I never would have thought they'd get together.
When things take a turn for the worse with Benny, McNally is understandably upset. Rather than spend the evening at The Penny with Mr. Pretty Boy Detective, she and Swarek apparently go to fix some plumbing at Benny's foster mothers home. Doesn't sound like much of a night? It makes sense after watching the episode. Score one for Team Swarek!!
Slowly, relationships are starting to form between the rookies and the more seasoned police officers. Nash and Williams had a conversation that led to both women having a better understanding of each other. Williams ends up joining Nash and Epstein at The Penny after work.
I think it will be good to see some friendships forming between the rookies and seasoned cops. The rookies have been on the job for a little while now and they are all proving themselves to be pretty good police officers (yes, even Peck). The 'let's make fun of the rookies' mentality wasn't quite as strong in this episode and that wasn't a bad thing at all.
