‘The Rookie’ has lost an original cast member. One of the show’s beloved police officers was killed off in the season 4 premiere.
The Rookie season 4 picked up right in the wake of the season 3 finale. Both Lopez (Alyssa Diaz) and Jackson (Titus Makin Jr.) were taken, and it was all hands on deck to get them back. Unfortunately, one of them died earlier on in the premiere.
A surveillance video of Lopez and Jackson being taken revealed Jackson’s fate. Lopez and Jackson were put into separate cars. Jackson tried to fight back, and his kidnapper shot him in the back. He was then pushed into the trunk of a car.

Lucy (Melissa O’Neil), Nolan (Nathan Fillion), Bradford (Eric Winter), and more watched in horror as they witnessed what happened to Jackson. Grey (Richard T. Jones) confirmed that Jackson was killed as the crew swarmed a warehouse to search for Lopez. In the midst of their grief, The Rookie officers still had to get Lopez back. They went to great lengths to save her and her baby.
Grey later arrested Armando, the man who killed Jackson, after a chase with Lucy. Grey admitted that there was a part of him who wanted to kill Armando because of what he did to Jackson, but he did the right thing and arrested him.
As she made a daring escape, Lopez took her power back and killed La Fiera. The show flashed forward three months later after Lopez gave birth. Lopez was still grieving the massive loss of Jackson and went to visit his grave in the final moments of the episode.

Adrienne Warren won in one of the most coveted categories Sunday (September 26) at the 74th Annual Tony Awards.
She won Best Performance by a Leading Actress in a Musical for her role in Tina: The Tina Turner Musical, marking Warren’s first Tony win.
“Everything I am is because of you,” Warren said to her parents during her emotional acceptance speech in which she teared up about the recent loss of three family members.
Warren also thanked Tina Turner “for trusting me to bring her story home.” The musical tells the turbulent story of Turner’s difficult life, including abuse at the hands of her husband and producer Ike Turner, and her triumphs despite the adversity.
A lot of hard work goes into bringing Turner’s energy to the stage night after night. Warren is on stage for two hours and 45 minutes and performs 24 numbers, putting a strain on her ankles, knees and back, according to CBS News.
Warren’s performance as Turner originated in London before coming to Broadway in 2019.

Jeannie Mai’s ex-husband doesn’t seem to wish her well now that she’s moved on with a new man and is expecting a baby.
After the 42-year-old announced he’s five months pregnant with her first child, a fan suggested her ex, Freddy Harteis, was “probably biting bricks and screaming” about the news.
“Yep. I upgraded from trash to treasure a long time ago,” Harteis responded, according to Yahoo. “Best decision I ever made. Congratulations. Being truly happy is an amazing feeling. Love my little family.”
The comment has since been deleted.
When Mai’s The Real co-host Loni Love saw the screengrab via @theneighborhoodtalk, she defended her.
“Auntie Loni here: This sounds like a woman answering… @thehollywoodhunter you better then this ..,” she wrote, tagging Harteis. “We were happy with your children being born so show the same grace to Baby Jenkins.”
Jeannie Mai and Freddy Harteis announced they were splitting in 2017. Six months after they split, Harteis revealed he was expecting his first child with girlfriend Linsey Toole. They now have two children together and are engaged to be married.

The British star began, “Look at all of us here, 60,000 strong together in New York City. Are we prepared to do what’s necessary to end this pandemic?”
“It is so good to be back here with all of you,” Meghan went on. “Look, we know that it feels like this pandemic has been going on forever. We get it. It is a lot.”
She continued, “And some people are just over it, but if everyone’s over it, it’s never going to be over.”
“Above all, this is a human rights crisis,” Harry expressed, adding, “My wife and I believe the way you’re born should not dictate your ability to survive.”
For their appearance, the duo stepped out in style. The former Suits star dressed in an elegant off-white shift dress by Valentino that featured intricate floral embroidery, while Harry looked just as suave in a gray suit and white button-down shirt.
