    The actor was great in the role. Sometimes he was a good mentor and sometimes you wondered what he was up to. Hate the character, not the actor.

    Divorced cop in the late 30s to mid 40s. Probably a fairly large pool. Nolan is the only one still in long sleeves.

    Nope, Nolan is in short sleeves. All three rookies got to short sleeves. Jackson got bumped back to long sleeves for a while shortly after, but he's back to short sleeves.

    Long sleeves when they first met, and he almost immediately asked for Nolan.

    Hinky? He practically screamed "bad guy" to me and my wife from the start.

    Last ep, how disappointing. If I wanted to watch bad things happening to people over and over again, I'd watch "Ozark".

    The first 15 minutes of the episode were basically a rehash/recap of the previous one. It really wasn't needed. I felt like they had to pad the episode to fill it out more.

    Considering the fact that the crime family has been getting off for more than the one rookie year of Nolan and the red shirt chick (Erin?) introduced in the last episode, there's no way that the police department wouldn't think more people are involved.

    I've read that the show runners want to fast track Nolan's character in the next season a bit, so I imagine that this will clean up in the first episode or two. With Nolan being alive, the scenario that Armstrong thought out won't work as well. As a rookie, his TO should also have been with him when he went to the prison. It makes no sense that she would have let him go without her.

    I just loved how Nolan parked his car in front of Armstrong’s house. :)
    I guess “Nobody Walks in L.A.”

    I was annoyed by John busting up his house as if he cold not tell the difference between a wall he hung and painted and one an unskilled guy did an hour previously.

    I'm in for next season, but they better wrap up the frame job quickly.

    I liked the recap at the beginning, since it showed what we didn't see him do in the previous one. I liked how it showed his increasing panic as things spun out of control.

    The setup job was pretty dumb. Nolan's prints won't be on anything. And please TV shows, stop ripping open shirts to show bullet proof vests.

    For one of the few times in this series, I was just kind of bored, and my mind kept on multi-tasking. The writing?

    So Nolan doesn't have any security in his house? If I was a cop, I would have cameras everywhere.

    If I was a crooked cop, I would have cameras everywhere.

    I think they ruined the show by setting up Nolan to take a fall. Armstrong should have just shot himself and end it there.

    That was my thought, a crooked cop with lots of dirty money would spend some of it on a great security system.

    Another thought I had was when Armstrong told John that he needed to hurry to his house because of all the evidence that was hidden there, John should have been able to say "No problem, I have had my phone in voice record mode since I showed up."

    Not nearly enough people do that. You can automatically record all your phone conversations. Most recording apps include silence suppression so you can leave them on all the time. I wouldn't be surprised if there was an app which would record a "sliding window" where with just one tap you could get it to penalty store the current such window and continue sliding along. So I have on permanently and only store clips when something interesting happened.

    “Nolan, we know Armstrong tried to frame you, and you found the mole and Erin’s killer, but you didn’t follow protocol, so you’ll have to remain a Rookie for another season year.”

    I am disgusted beyond belief. So much stupidity. And a stupid cliffhanger. At this point I don't even want to see a next season. And this was one of my favorite shows. So disappointing.

    It was a stupid cliffhanger. Last season's cliffhanger was better. This one just shows stupidity. You would hope that common sense would kick in. Since the cliffhanger is about Nolan, he's the main character, so they are not going to have him be in deep doo doo (at least, not for long), so the suspense isn't there. The cliffhanger should have been over one of the other side characters with Nolan involved. Kind of like Chen getting abducted and trapped in the drum. That would have been a better cliffhanger for the season ender.
