The Rookie Returns Valentine's Day; Season 5 Ep. 15 "The Con" Overview

With ABC's Nathan Fillion-starring The Rookie returning on February 14th, here's the overview & promo for Season 5 Episode 15, "The Con."

With how this season has been going for "Chenford" fans, it's only fitting that ABC's Nathan Fillion-starring The Rookie returns on Valentine's Day. But based on what the overview & promo for S05E15 "The Con" has to show us, it's not looking like an episode that's going to be filled with boxes of chocolates and stuffed unicorns. Nolan (Fillion) & Bailey (Jenna Dewan) are forced to deal with the fallout from what Nolan learned in the last episode, while Lopez (Alyssa Diaz) has a plan that could free her from Elijah Stone (Brandon Jay McLaren) in what reads like a "Feds" crossover. And while we don't have an overview for it yet, it looks like the following episode (February 21st) is titled "Exposed" (Hmmm…).
