The Rookie ABC, 8 p.m.

Stop in the name of love! After four seasons of flirting, the LAPD’S most arresting new couple has finally paired up. “They’re quite a force to be reckoned with,” Eric Winter says of the #Chenford fandom that has championed the love match of his stern

Sgt. Tim Bradford and Melissa O’neil’s more emotional cop Lucy Chen. Still, it’s not “all cotton candy and rainbows,” Winter says. Case in point: Their first Valentine’s Day. “It’s not an easy one,” he previews of the episode, postponed from Feb. 14 by the State of the Union. Any hope of a perfect romantic day is put on hold when Tim discovers early on that Lucy did something behind his back, which, for rule stickler

Tim, “ruffles his feathers quite a bit.”

Things are just as tricky for the precinct’s other lovebirds. Expect issues to arise for seasoned officer Nolan (Nathan Fillion) and firefighte­r Bailey (Jenna Dewan), as well, though Winter hints things will resolve in the classic comedy-infused Rookie way. “It’s not what you’d expect,” he teases of the outcome. Hey, no one ever said love was easy!
