Harold Perrineau has taken on a large role in ABC’s The Rookie, along with Nathan Fillion. He portrays the new night detective, Pablo Armstrong, and is working side-by-side with Fillion’s John Nolan.
Here is everything you need to know about Det. Pablo Armstrong and the actor who plays him, Harold Perrineau, on The Rookie.
The Rookie: ‘The Night General’
First up, the episode this week was called “The Night General” and it saw Det. Armstrong and Nolan head to a hospital to take the call on an unruly patient.
However, things got out of hand for the two when the patient attacked them. Luckily, the doctor on duty was there to help them.
That doctor ended up being the ex-girlfriend of Nolan, Dr. Grace Sawyer, and much of the episode dealt with that relationship.
Nolan and Armstrong moved on to take on a case of a home invasion that saw a casualty and when they find someone they think is a suspect, he is beaten half to death and ends up in a coma.
When they learn that the father of the victim is seeking revenge against the men who killed his son, they race to try to stop him from doing something he might regret — but arrive too late.
