"Crash Course" is the second episode of the first season on The Rookie.

Summary Edit

Jackson is questioned as to why he didn't fire his weapon during a previous firefight, but Lopez covers for him. Chen is stuck with a temporary training officer whose style is more cautious than Tim, who is recovering from being shot. Nolan continues to face difficulties in navigating between his civilian instincts and how they affect his actions as a cop. He and Bishop are assigned a rusty old car as Nolan's punishment for damaging their vehicle. Chen finds out that Tim intentionally got her assigned to a more passive T.O. to test her commitment. Bishop is able to get a new patrol vehicle, which Nolan nearly crashes on his first drive.
