The Rookie Season 3 Preview: Chen Goes Undercover; Nolan's Rough Start

Heading into our preview for this Sunday's episode of ABC's The Rookie, Nolan's (Nathan Fillion) passed his disciplinary exam but also found himself faced with the stark realities of just how far he's going to go in the LAPD. On tonight's "Revelations," we see the first step in Nolan's attempt at a "reset" as he heads back to school to become a training officer. Meanwhile, Officer Chen (Melissa O'Neil) considers a career shift into undercover work- but is she being put out into the field too soon? We're betting there's a slight chance that might be possible when the series returns tonight- as you can tell from the sampling of scenes below.
