This week’s episode starts with a flashback to 5 months ago. A submarine is full of dead infected. There are only two sailors left functioning; they speak with British accents.

Back in the present: Chandler, Slattery, and Scott discuss the U.S.N.S. Solace, a hospitalship which sailed out of Norfolk two weeks ago. There is enough equipment on that ship to produce tens of thousands of doses of the cure per day, which is significantly more than that lab on the U.S.S. Nathan James.

Graceland is never short of a roller coaster episode. After last week where we left with Paige possibly leaving, Briggs in a crazy undercover job and Johnny picking up Sid on the run, I wasn’t sure where our housemates would go next.

So not wasting time as we get to what happened in episode two of season three.

Rookie Blue brought on the emotion in their second episode back, as Andy and Sam deal with the fallout of Marlo’s pregnancy announcement and Andy’s freak out at the end of last week’s hour, and the case of the week about an abusive father with his wife and children terrified of him. All of which bring up the question of what a “perfect family” is and if they should even thrive for that.

Of course with the strong emotional moments throughout the hour, also came the ever-growing mess that is Chris’ attempt at a love life…with the Inspector’s wife.

Check out my top moments of this week’s episode:
