The Rookie Season 5 Ep. 16 "Exposed" Preview Finds Lucy Undercover

In the following preview for ABC's Nathan Fillion-starring The Rookie S05E16 "Exposed," Lucy's undercover with Tim as her back-up.

So what would the weekend be without a preview for the next episode of ABC's Nathan Fillion-starring The Rookie? Thankfully, we don't have to answer that question because we have an overview, promo & sneak preview for S05E16 "Exposed" (hitting this Tuesday, February 21st). But before we get to that, just a quick heads-up that S05E17 is (ominously) titled "The Enemy Within," and is listed for February 28th (though there is no official overview yet). Shifting our focus back to this Tuesday, the team faces a nasty combination of a militia group named the Army of Freedom, a mobile drug lab that's become a ticking time bomb, and a potential Ebola exposure. Oh, and did we mention that it's Valentine's Day? So what better way for Lucy (Melissa O'Neil) and Tim (Eric Winter) to spend the day than by getting intel on a dangerous group of whackjob, with Lucy showing why she's uber-badass when she's undercover – which is exactly what they end up doing.
