Rookie Blue is literally going out with a bang. The Season 5 finale — airing tonight, Thursday, August 21, from 9 to 11 p.m. on ABC — starts with the detonation of a car bomb.


But that's only the start of 15 Division's problems in this two-part season-capper. Read on for plot teases via the episodes' synopses...

"Fragments" — Andy McNally and Sam Swarek are in such a good place that she just can't help but feel like she's waiting for the other shoe to drop. So when Andy learns her former rookie, Duncan, is back on active duty and hoping to reconcile, she's sure that this is what her anxiety was anticipating. But it's all hands on deck when a car bomb explodes in a downtown parking garage — quickly followed by a second explosion at a busy local intersection. Duncan, eager to prove himself, goes rogue — only to come face-to-face with the car bomber. Now, it's up to Andy and Nick to get the situation under control and save Duncan before they run out of time.

"Everlasting" — With a car-bomber still on the loose, the officers of 15 Division work frantically to track down the suspect while trying to figure out if more bombs have been planted around the city. Just when it feels like the worst is over, a bomb goes off in the evidence room of the station — with Andy McNally inside. But the violence — and the surprises — aren't over, leaving Sam Swarek dumbfounded.

Talk about an explosive night of TV!

The Rookie Blue Season 5 finale airs on Thursday, August 21, starting at 9 p.m. ET on ABC.
