Who’s Best for Andy McNally, Sam or Nick?
Last season, Andy McNally learned to stand on her own two feet and gradually found with breakup buddy and former undercover colleague, Nick Collins. Nov 7, Nick asked Andy as he lent forward slightly. McNally and Collins both nodded " And all this other numbers? "Right you guys are going in as a couple so make it believable, but keep it professional you're on the job. both of you again on Sunday to answer any questions you guys have and to quiz you.". Jul 9, Neither Nick nor Andy can contact anyone, so Gail Peck, whom Nick was Episode 2, "Homecoming", begins with Chief Frank Best's marriage.
While she's looking through a computer, one of the men returns, knocks her out, and she awakens tied up and duct taped in the back of a van. Back at the police station, Blackstone is telling 15 that Simon Dent, a man Dove and officer Oliver Shaw arrested earlier that day for reckless driving, is part of the drug operation and needs to be in play in order for a successful takedown of Nick's group. Eventually, Blackstone admits that he's lost contact with Andy and Nick, which prompts the chief and officers of 15 to rush to rescue their officers, no matter the cost to the undercover operation.
Meanwhile, the head of Nick's group names Andy as the mole and forces Nick to shoot her to prove he's not a mole as well. He takes the shot, but it's a blank. When the leader orders the group to get rid of Andy for real, the officers escape to a different room and hide. Nick tells a furious Andy he knew the gun wasn't loaded before he shot her, and Andy gets a call in to Sam, which leads to their rescue. Afterwards, Chris learns he received the transfer he requested to Timmins, so he can raise his son in a better environment.
Andy goes to make amends with Sam, but sees him kissing officer Marlo Cruz, a newcomer. Later, Nick reveals he took the undercover job thinking Gail was leaving for France.

Andy and Oliver stumble across a bank robbery, where the suspect seemingly has a baby strapped to him, so Andy can't shoot. The suspect, Timothy McRae, escapes the bank after needlessly shooting the bank manager.
Just as the team figures out that McRae was after the bank manager specifically, he shows up at the hospital and kidnaps the manager's wife, who is McRae's ex girlfriend. The chase leads to a standoff-- McRae holding his wife hostage in a van with Andy and Sam blocking him off on one side while Dove and Chris close in on him from behind. 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. And maybe he should have waited longer after the split with Gail, but that whole taking chances thing means finally being honest.
