Tim Bradford and Lucy Chen's date will finally happen in The Rookie Season 5 Episode 10.
Lucy broke up with Chris, as viewers will recall from Episode 9, after she and Tim addressed their feelings for one another at the end of Episode 8. Lucy went straight to Tim's office after the breakup. He invited her on a date, and she accepted.
‘Chenford’ Romance Heats Up in The Rookie Season 5 Episode 10
The synopsis of The Rookie Season 5 Episode 10 reads, “Detective Nyla Harper and James find themselves in the middle of a bank robbery which leads the entire team on a citywide manhunt. Meanwhile, Tim and Lucy finally go on their first date, but it does have a few complications.”
Fans of The Rookie can rejoice since Episode 10 will feature Tim and Lucy's first date. We believe that "Chenford" will prevail despite the "complications" that the synopsis indicates it has.
Melissa O’Neil Reveals What’s Next for Tim and Lucy
The Rookie's Twitter account shared a video of Melissa O'Neil, who plays Lucy, hinting at what would happen to her and Tim in The Rookie Season 5 Episode 10.
“OK, what is next for ‘Chenford?'” O’Neil teased. “Well, I think ‘Chenford’ fans might be a little surprised. They might not be all the way happy for a period of time because I think what’s going to happen, they will see coming. And whether or not we will get rewards from that remains to be seen. So, you’ll have to stick it out. But around Episode 10, maybe something cool will happen. But I don’t know.”
Perhaps O'Neil was referring to the first nine episodes of Season 5 when she said that The Rookie viewers would not be pleased with Tim and Lucy's story. And the date in the midseason premiere will serve as the reward for that.
In The Rookie Season 5 Episode 10, not only will Tim and Lucy deepen their romance, but the officers will also collaborate with the agents from The Rookie: Feds in a crossover event.
The two-parter is set to start in The Rookie at 8 p.m. ET on Tuesday, Jan. 3, and it will conclude in The Rookie: Feds Season 1 Episode 10 at 9 p.m. ET.
