Episode Summary

EDIT
Rookie Summer
AIRED:
It´s the beginning of the summer and rookie school has just started. Cody meets his old diving instructor from Hawaii there. Her name is Lani McKenzie, and she has problems with her ex-boyfriend Darren. He can´t accept that she has left him. When Darren approaches Lani and Sheryl while they are jogging on the beach, he and Cody end up in a fight. Later Lani is kidnapped by Darren and held hostage on a boat. However, Cody manages to locate the right boat and is able to bring Lani out of there, with a little help from her as well. Meanwhile, Manny wins the rookie competition and is really excited. When Mitch tells him that he can´t become a lifeguard, due to the fact that he can´t see well enough without his contact lenses, Manny freaks out and break one of the windows in Mitch´s office. He also refuses to accept the offer to take a job at the local beach club. The Chief wants to promote Mitch to Captain after Samantha´s departure. The Chief blames Mitch for Samantha´s departure. She left Baywatch when she realized that she still loved her ex-husband Adam. Hobie doesn´t do his best in the rookie competition but makes it anyway. Later when Mitch confronts him about it, he tells him that it isn´t always easy to have a living legend as a father. One of the rookies named April doesn´t make the cut, but is offered a spot when another rookie is injured. This upsets Richie Edmond, another rookie who is the one who was supposed to get the open spot. He had the wrong personality to become a lifeguard.moreless
