The Rookie Season 5 Ep. 16 "Exposed" Overview": Militias, Ebola & More

Here's a look at the overview for what reads like a very tense episode of ABC's The Rookie, with S05E16 "Exposed" hitting on February 21st.

Even though there's still a week to go until Valentine's Day, ABC's Nathan Fillion-starring The Rookie is offering us an early "valentine" in the form of an update to our rundown of what's still to come this season. Last week, we brought you the overview for S05E15 "The Con," which saw Nolan (Fillion) & Bailey (Jenna Dewan) dealing with the fallout from Nolan's personal loss and Lopez (Alyssa Diaz) devising a plan that could free her from Elijah Stone (Brandon Jay McLaren) in what reads like a "Feds" crossover. Now, we have a look at what's to come with S05E16 "Exposed," which finds our heroes taking on a militia and… ebola?!
