Rookie Blue Boss: For Andy and Sam, Marlo's Pregnancy Is 'A Terrible Blow'

Rookie Blue Season 6 Spoilers

Rookie Blue‘s Season 6 premiere left Andy near tears with good reason: her boyfriend is going to have a baby with his ex-girlfriend Marlo.

That unexpected news comes as “a terrible blow” to the shocked officer, executive producer Tassie Cameron tells TVLine. “It would be an impossibly hard thing to deal with.”

Even the cop’s portrayer was taken aback by the twist. “Missy Peregrym, who is a very emotional, sensitive person who really connects with where Andy’s at, was like, ‘This is terrible! I don’t know what I would do!'” Cameron relates. “She really brought a lot of that confusion and pain to the dilemma.”

Andy’s decision about what to do next will be “a huge struggle for her” in this Thursday’s episode (ABC, 10/9c) as she’s confronted with a not-so-perfect family during a case. Meanwhile, Sam will stand up and take responsibility for his child.

“Sam is a good man, and he cares very much for Marlo,” Cameron says. “What’s he going to do except man up and try and juggle a very complicated, delicate situation? It’s really interesting to watch how he does that.”

But should he be keeping an eye on his girlfriend to make sure she doesn’t bolt?

“We’ve shown that Andy can take off and run away sometimes if she’s panicked or scared,” Cameron explains. Certainly, an unplanned pregnancy — especially one that’s not her own — could present the “perfect opportunity to fail” in her relationship. But the EP thinks that “five seasons of learning to love Sam Swarek [is] pretty compelling” evidence that the rookie won’t sabotage her romance.

“Sam and Andy are in as good a place as they’ve ever been,” Cameron adds. “We’ve watched them work really, really hard together to communicate. They’re telling the truth to each other and not [running] away from each other. If they’re ever going to handle something like this and readjust their expectations about their relationship, this is the moment.”

    SPOILER ALERT: We’re how many episodes in, in Canada and those two storylines have barely intersected. I feel like Marlo has worked more with Dov than Andy or Sam.

    Hey, Tassie, we didn’t ask for perfect. Sam and Andy were never going to be perfect but we sure didn’t want this trainwreck of a mess you created. I was so happy that the ratings crashed. This story is awful. Marlo is unlikeable. I have more sympathy if Sam cheated on Andy than Sam having this unwanted child with this woman.

  3. Bwhit says:

    If they wanted a pregnancy why did it have to be Marlo? Couldn’t it have actually been Andy and the story could have been how they navigate that?!? Why have Sam and Andy overcome all these obstacles just to throw this at them? Marlo is just not a character I root for, when Sam got shot she just looked at him and ran the other way, I wish that was last time she appeared on the show.

  4. Mikayla says:

    I think I hate every interview Tassie has done. She says nothing to help any of the crappy situations. Since when did Andy not love sam for who he is in the first place? When did sam care a “great deal” about Marlo? This writer needs to examine her own show before she speaks.

  5. Nat says:

    At this point all I can do is hope to god this entire Marlo storyline is irrelevant by the end of the season….

  6. Gina says:

    I’m not even sure Tassie gets her own characters. Andy had to learn how to love Sam? Since when? This story was completely forced and it’s starting show. 6 episodes in, and I’m so confused why they even brought Marlo back and did this story. Marlo and this child couldn’t be more irrelevant if they tried.

    Is this the last season?

    I feel like there’s no way the pregnancy will actually come to full term. Equally interesting and wraps up the annoying triangle it’s created for Marlo/Sam/Andy.
