The Rookie Season 5 Episode 13 Sneak Preview: It's Tim to The Rescue

In this preview for ABC's The Rookie S05E13 "Daddy Cop," Tim & Celina check in on Celina's mother in the midst of a heatwave & blackout.

Before we take a look at the latest preview for this week's S05E13 "Daddy Cop," we just wanted to take a second to commend the marketing team behind ABC's Nathan Fillion-starring The Rookie because they've been doing some quality work getting previews and behind-the-scenes looks out there to the fans. So with that in mind, this week sees Lucy (Melissa O'Neil) rallying the troops to help get Tim (Eric Winter) into a better job than the one he has now (one he took to maintain his Chenford relationship). Hampering all of that and more is a nasty combination of a heatwave and a blackout, one that finds Tim and Celina (Lisseth Chavez) heading out to check on Celina's mom- who's curious about Tim's relationship status.
