Outside of the fact that Zachary Levi portrays both men (and they each know how to wield a gun), Chuck and Luke have nothing in common — and Levi prefers it that way.
“My only prerequisite was I didn’t want to play Chuck again,” the actor says of his involvement with the Heroes revival. “I really wanted to play something that was darker and grittier and edgier and more f—ked up. I wanted somebody that had some problems.

In order to prove that Oliver wasn’t responsible for the bombing inside 15 Division, Juliet suggests that they stage an “integrity test” (basically, a trap) to lure out the real dirty officer, Commissioner Alonso Santana.
Nah. On Thursday’s Rookie Blue, 15 Division comes to the Sergeant’s rescue, with less than a day to clear his name.
Commissioner Santana wants to know why he wasn’t informed of Noelle’s investigation. She does an impressive job of covering her behind/placating Santana by telling him she was trying to take some of the stress off him. He’s got to delegate, after all. So while she’s bought herself some time, it’s not a lot: Santana wants that report by end of day.
On Thursday’s Rookie Blue, Sam finally put a ring on it and proposed to Andy. But the couple’s getaway weekend wasn’t an entirely romantic affair.
