'Bulletproof' Season 2 Episode 2: Pike's marriage set to fall apart but he can't afford to lose his head
Things between Pike and his wife Arjana have always been a bit unstable because of the dangers of Pike's work as a cop
Spoilers for 'Bulletproof' Season 2 Episode 2
With the stage set for 'Bulletproof' Season 2, things are not looking good for Ronnie Pike (Ashley Walters). Or rather, they're not looking good for his marriage.
Things between Pike and his wife Arjana (Vanessa Vanderpuye) have always been a bit unstable because of the dangers of Pike's work as a cop. But now there's another variable thrown into the mix that could cause the relationship to implode.
In Episode 2, we see how the pressures of undercover work are causing frays in Pike and Arjana's marriage. She doesn't want him to be a cop but he loves his job too much to leave it behind for good.
To make matters worse, it looks like there may be a romance forming between Pike and his new teammate Scarlett 'Scooch' Hailton (Olivia Chenery) and that cannot be good for anyone. Scooch seems like a nice enough girl but whether she would be willing to wreck a marriage is a bit of a question.
And then there are the kids to think about. While leaving Arjana for Scooch might make things a lot easier for Pike work-wise, it would shatter his family and it's really unlikely that Pike would put his kids through something like that. Not to mention, Bishop (Noel Clarke) would rather shoot him in the foot than let Pike mess up his marriage like that.
Ultimately, it all comes down to Pike and what he may choose to do but the fact remains that Scooch understands why he puts himself in danger every day much better than Arjana ever could. Also, she's really cute.
In any case, Pike might not even have to make such a choice any time soon because first, he has to survive his undercover mission with the Markides family, a task that already seems pretty daunting. If he doesn't focus on staying alive and cracking the case, he might not live to make the decision, though we really hope it doesn't come to that.
Here's the synopsis for Episode 2: "Tension mounts as Pike and Bishop are drawn deeper into the Markides family. Tanner starts to sweat over her decision to steal drug money to fix a problem in her personal life."
'Bulletproof' airs Wednesdays at 9 pm ET on The CW.
