Tonight’s episode of Rookie Blue kicks off with Andy out for coffee with Sam, venting about Oliver. She thinks that Oliver backstabbed her, but Sam argues that “backstabbing isn’t really Oliver’s thing.” He comforts her and leans over the table and kisses her.

Meanwhile Diaz is at an AA meeting, and pretends his name is Dave. He says that it was his roommate’s idea for him to come to a meeting, because he has been feeling a little lost lately. Dov waits for him outside, and after the meeting Diaz says it was “awesome.”

At the station Traci receives an email from her lawyer and freaks out, her husband Dex is taking her to court and is going for soul custody of their son. Peck comforts her and says that he is just trying to scare her.

Inspector pays Oliver a visit and tells him to double up uniforms in Swansea. Oliver argues that he can’t pull the plug on the raid, to put men in an upper middle class area. The Inspector doesn’t want to hear it though.

Peck gets news that Oliver is pulling the plug on the raid on the illegal gambling ring. He confides in Traci, and tells her that her ex husband Dex is participating at the illegal gambling house, and when they do finally raid it, he could go to jail for two years.

Dov and Diaz head out on patrol, and receive a phone call about a car idling for a long period of time. They arrive at a house, and someone left their car in the driveway running, with the door wide open. They turn the car off, and head to the house and find the front door wide open. They walk through the house and it appears to be ransacked. Someone starts yelling for help, he’s locked in a room. He says that he was leaving town and forgot his passport so he came home and someone was robbing his house and locked him in his studio. Dov heads upstairs and finds a ten boy tied to a chair with his face wrapped in a sheet.

Dov questions Seth, the teen boy tied upstairs, he says that his parents were leaving town and he ditched school. He says he walked in the house and someone jumped him from behind and tied him up and he never seen their face. Meanwhile downstairs Andy is questioning Seth’s step-father Ewing, the guy who was locked in the studio. He makes a list of all the items that were stolen, and adds that the thief even took some of their silverware.

Oliver heads back in to the station and tells Peck that he is giving him the men for his raid. Traci tells him “good luck” and he rushes off.

Seth’s Mom Jackie shows up at the house in a panic, and Andy reassures her that everything is fine. Andy and Dov head in to the other room where a window was broken, and realize that it was broken form the inside of the house. They think it was an inside job.

Back at the station Gail and Andy do some digging and realize that Jackie’s company is going under, and the family is broke. Sam brings Ewing in for questioning, and he has no idea that his wife is on the verge of losing her company. Ewing says he needs to talk to Jackie because she handles all of their “money stuff.” Sam hints that it might be insurance fraud. Ewing says that wasn’t the case because he had weed in the studio and someone stole it.

Traci meets up with Dex and warns him that the underground casino is going to be raided and if he is there he will go to prison. He says that he was just trying to cover some of his legal fees. Traci tells him that he can’t tell anyone she tipped him off.

He’s barely breathing, they call for an ambulance.

While he is lying there bleeding, Seth confesses to Dov that Tim Rockett is the guy in the video and he helped him rob his own house.
