The Rookie Season 5 Ep. 16 Preview: Comparing Valentine's Day Notes

With a new episode only hours away, here's a Valentine's Day-themed preview for ABC's Nathan Fillion-starring The Rookie S05E16 "Exposed."

With the team facing 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, tonight's episode of ABC's Nathan Fillion-starring The Rookie isn't exactly lacking in action & drama. But did we also mention that it's Valentine's Day… and it's Lucy (Melissa O'Neil) & Tim's (Eric Winter) first. Which would explain why he seems a bit on edge in the following sneak preview for tonight's chapter. Of course, that whole "mobile drug lab" might also have something to do with feeing a little impatient regarding V-Day small talk…
