Rookie Blue - The Final SeasonThe last 11 episodes of the Canadian crime drama (originally intended to be the second-half of the show’s shortened Fifth Season) are collected on DVD. The final season of Rookie Blue comes to a close with the wedding of Andy (Missy Peregrym) and Sam (Ben Bass). Much of the season deals with Marlo‘s (Rachael Ancheril) pregnancy threatening to throw a wrench into Andy and Sam’s relationship and the fallout of the bombing of 15 Division which will ultimately reveal Steve Peck (Adam MacDonald) is the dirty cop responsible for the bombing in the station (which he will attempt to frame a beloved member of the team for).

The three-disc set includes all 11 episodes of the show’s sixth, and final, season. Highlights of the solid (if unspectacular) season include an investigation into the disappearance of a 16 year-old girl (Zoé De Grand Maison), Oliver (Matt Gordon) under suspicion for the bombing, the hunt for a serial rapist, a prison riot, and hard choices involving family.

Rookie Blue - 74 Epiphanies

The Sixth Season (and possibly the entire series) comes to a close with the wedding of Andy (Missy Peregrym) and Sam (Ben Bass), and the day is not without the added drama fans have come to expect from the show over the past six years. Despite the various obstacles, the pair eventually get their journey down the aisle completing the arc of the show’s longest running relationship. The officers of 15 Division also gets some good news as the core group learns they will all be staying together (whether or not the show comes back for a Seventh Season).

Rookie Blue - Breaking Up the Band

In the final episode before the season finale, “Breaking Up the Band” introduces the idea of major shake-ups with 15 Division should Rookie Blue get renewed for another season. It seems the corruption within the department has the higher-ups discussing city-wide transfers which could mean several new faces if the show does indeed get renewed (a possibility the show’s dismal ratings are making less possible). Andy‘s (Missy Peregrym) reaction to Sam‘s (Ben Bass) new fatherhood is one of the major storylines covered in the episode as “Breaking Up the Band” also teases a break-up between the pair. Cooler heads prevail and it looks like, renewed or cancelled, fans of the show will indeed get to see a wedding before the season comes to a close.

Rookie Blue - Ninety Degrees

For some the recent scandal is easier to put behind them then others. Oliver (Matt Gordon) returns to 15 Division as a beat cop deciding he’s had enough of the politics behind the desk. Traci (Enuka Okuma) cuts off all ties to Steve Peck (Adam MacDonald). Meanwhile Gail (Charlotte Sullivan) is stuck with her brother being brought up on charges and a friend who continues to be distant while being forced to spend the day with Steve’s old partner (Katharine Isabelle) who decides to take out her aggression on the closest Peck she can find.

Rookie Blue - Integrity Test

While Traci (Enuka Okuma) struggles with the realization that her boyfriend is a dirty cop, Sam (Ben Bass) attempts to convince Oliver (Matt Gordon) to stay and fight the charges rather than resign, and Andy (Missy Peregrym), Epstein (Gregory Smith), Nick (Peter Mooney), and Gail (Charlotte Sullivan) set a trap for Commissioner Alonso Santana (Richard Chevolleau) in a last-ditch attempt to prove Oliver’s innocence.
