Has a rookie ever had a more disastrous first day than Celina? She barely got away from the station before she landed all of them in such serious hot water that she nearly caused them a lawsuit, lost a case, and jeopardized the search for a missing woman.
The month or so time jump meant he did his own training, and he thought he had it all together, but Nolan may as well be a rookie again trying to mentor and guide someone who goes off-book seconds after meeting him.
Have we ever seen a rookie be so bold that they initiated doing their own thing, disregarding and not even paying attention to their training officer? What happened to trying to impress their superiors or even fearing them?

The Rookie is coming to the end of its current set of episodes, with the season finale set for Sunday, May 15 on ABC. With the show about to say goodbye for the summer, Nathan Fillion fans have been left wondering whether it will be back in the fall for Season 5.
ABC has announced a number of shows that have been renewed for next season. But with the other networks culling dozens of series this week, viewers may be concerned that The Rookie will be among them.
At the end of March, ABC confirmed The Rookie Season 5 alongside The Good Doctor Season 6. The Nathan Fillion series is among four dramas that the network has given new seasons so far, with Grey's Anatomy and its spin-off Station 19 also being renewed. ABC has also given a second season order to its breakout comedy Abbott Elementary.
ABC also seems to have faith in the universe of The Rookie. The network has also ordered a spin-off from the show starring Niecy Nash as the oldest rookie in the FBI academy. The show was given a backdoor pilot during this season of The Rookie, and the network has discussed the shows crossing over throughout their respective seasons, much in the same way that Grey's and Station 19 do.
Fillion reacted to the renewal news on his Instagram, writing: "I couldn't be more proud of what we have accomplished with this show. Congratulations to our cast, crew, writers, producers, casting directors, directors, and everyone who has lent their talents to #therookieabc over the years. This job brings me real joy, I look forward to many more episodes with you all. I'd also like to thank the fans who keep coming back. You keep watching 'em, we'll keep making 'em. #therookieabc #season5 #holycrap And thanks to ABC for the early pickup! It's such a good feeling!"
