Motive Preview: “In Plain Sight”


[Warning: General spoilers ahead.]

Tuesday’s Motive has a fantastic selection of guest stars in an episode that packs an emotional wallop and a surprise within the team.




Rookie Blue‘s Missy Peregrym is joined by iZombie‘s Aly Michalka and familiar Canadian faces and faves Ian Tracey and Susan Hogan. There’s also a fun wink for fans of Hellcats as Michalka appears with former co-star Ryan Kennedy (Major Crimes/Defiance).




I didn’t know going in who the guest stars were beyond Peregrym, so for me, the episode was a great treat just for the casting that went beyond that to a really poignant story about one family’s love, loss, and misguided good intentions in a desperate attempt at closure.

On the less intense side of things, the team seems to be looped on Angie’s new friendship, so there’s a little bit of good-natured teasing that goes with it.

Motive airs Tuesdays at 10/9c on CTV in Canada and Sundays at 10/9c on USA in the U.S. (six weeks behind the Canadian episodes). Here’s a sneak peek of “In Plain Sight.”
