It's been six months since Andy McNally and Nick Collins left for their And although Nick and Gail have cemented their relationship, Nick can't. Ever since Nick Collins (Peter Mooney) joined the 15 Division as a he went undercover and started dating Andy McNally (Missy Peregrym). and vice versa, which puts their will-they/won't-they relationship into question. Rookie Blue 4×11 Focus Review: Who's Best for Andy McNally, Sam or happy about the Andy and Nick Collins (Peter Mooney) relationship.
Not long after 15's most infamous couple called it quits, he has the fortune of riding with her and hearing all about how she was not going to talk about him.Andy & Nick "Last Hope" (Rookie Blue)
Of course, the hours that follow that declaration are filled with the "How could he! And by the time the shift is over, and she is in tears for the third time that day, he offers no words - just a hug. Andy McNally is in love with Sam Swarek. Not long after that shift, he has the joy of becoming her "break-up buddy," which mostly consists of reading from this really strange mantra book and maybe throwing in a jab or two just to get her to smile. She doesn't smile like she used to, though, as if watching her best friend lose Jerry and her losing Sam so close in time and in such different ways has stolen the life from behind her eyes.
For the first time, Andy admits that she doesn't know what she wants. Again, he just gives her a hug. Going to the Penny used to be something he just did with Gail, but it's not long before he's asking Andy - or Andy's asking him - to meet up for a beer. They talk about the day's shift, about that domestic disturbance on Elm with the lady and the megaphone and the pig on a leash. Often, the conversation shifts to how Nick thinks things aren't so different back home after being at war. For the first time, Nick doesn't get a lecture about too many Afghanistan references.
Someone actually listens and responds and converses. All the while, he isn't surprised that she still somehow manages to slip in a jab or two about her former TO. It's not long after Gail's been reinstated to duty, and already she's giving him a hard time.
Nothing was ever easy with her in the past, but now, whenever he tries to stand on his own feet, there's a scrutinizing glare from an ex in the room - not his ex, but hers. When he confides in Andy, she laughs, and it's genuine and sarcastic all bundled into one in a way only she can manage.
There's a question - is it worth it - and he knows the answer, but isn't ready to tell. And so when that window rolls down, and he sees who is inside next to Detective Callaghan, he isn't surprised. In the grand scheme of things, six months isn't that long. In fact, some would argue that it wasn't enough time to expose the operation at the center of their investigation and bring in the bad guys. It feels like ages, though - being away from home, not talking to Gail, not being in uniform and not being himself.
It doesn't help that every night, the dinner conversation always seems to come back to one name. Soon, the days start to blend, and it's not until they both have a gun pointed at their heads that Nick prays for one more achingly boring conversation - if it means they survive to have it. Not long after they make their return, Andy comes to the slapping reality that she's been replaced by a female Sam drone. And try as she might to be quiet about it, somewhere along the way Nick's ear ends up metaphorically chewed up and resting somewhere on the floor of their squad car.
He doesn't mind though, even thought it drives him crazy the way Swarek is missing what's right in front of him. He doesn't mind because since they've come back, they don't ride together like they used to.
Or maybe it's just all the time they spent undercover - anything less feels like an extreme. And neither is Chloe. In fact, not long after they return, she's the first one to pick up that there's something more there.
Nick's frustrated and Gail's mad, and unspoken feelings, feelings that they refuse to talk about hang over the couple like a dark cloud.

There is a light, though, and Chloe sees it. And whether it's a jab or not, intentional or accidental, the light is made known to to Gail. And Gail is mad, and Nick is still frustrated. It means absolutely nothing. That night was a turning point, and it's not long after that everything else falls blissfully apart.
There's a kidnapping, and secrets are revealed with Blackstone in the mix. And Nick is there to hear every last word.
He listens as she defends herself in the car, he really does, hanging onto every word that suggests their bitter end is his fault. And maybe it is. Maybe it is his fault for not realizing until now the feelings that are creeping up on him. The sparks have gone out between him and Gail, but is his wrong for hanging on in hopes that the embers have a little more left inside them?
It doesn't matter now because he's telling her goodnight and she's looking at him with shame and guilt and anger - all things he knows she wouldn't being feelings if he hadn't come back into her life. And then it's not long before he realizes how safe he's been living his life. And I don't mean physically living, because as a cop there's a chance to get shot at every day- almost as much as there is when he was wearing a different uniform.
The relationship with Gail had been safe, going back to something he knew before though it hadn't worked the first time. Well, it had failed this time too, and this time, it's Andy who's his "break-up buddy" instead of the other way around. He looks at her with gratitude, knowing full well that she could so easily look at him with daggers.
The feeling of thanks is mixed with something else, something Chloe had discovered before, something that shouldn't be there. But now, it doesn't matter.
