Gail Peck, Rookie Blue
Gail Peck (Charlotte Sullivan)
Gail Peck was one of the police officers which the show Rookie Blue focused on. In seasons 1 and 2 Gail dealt with the pressure brought on by her family name and her relationship with fellow officer Chris Diaz. Eventually they broke up over Chris’ jealousy issues. In season 3 it was revealed Gail used to be engaged to one of the new officers Nick Collins, and the two ended up dating again throughout the season.
When Gail went undercover at the end of season 3 she got kidnapped by a cab driver. In an attempt to rescue her, Gail’s colleague and her close friend’s fiancé died in a shooting. In the end Gail took the fall for the incident and ended up isolating herself from everyone. This caused Nick to get closer to her best friend, Andy, and Gail became jealous of the two and cheated on him causing them to break up.
In season 4 Gail met Holly on a crime-scene and the two formed a friendship. After Gail had a falling out with Andy, she and Holly attended the wedding of one of Gail’s friends and ended up sharing a kiss in the coatroom.
Later on, when a man started shooting police officers, Holly found her way to the police station to check up on Gail. They talked and kissed in one of the interrogation rooms. They started dating but when Holly eventually introduced Gail to her friends, Gail overheared a conversation and misinterpreted it, which caused them to break up. While working on a case, Gail and Holly reconciled and tried to make their relationship work again. Shortly after, Holly got offered a job in America and asked Gail to go with her. Gail, who was in the middle of trying to adopt a girl, declined and the two split up for good.
By the end of the series Frankie was introduced as a love interest for Gail. After being forced to work together and some flirting, it was implied they had sex as Frankie walked out of Gail’s room the following morning.
Despite Gail’s past relationships with men which seemed genuine on her part, showrunner Tassie Cameron identified her as a lesbian:
AfterEllen: Will we be introduced to a new love interest for Gail this season? And if we will be, can you say for certain that it’ll be a female love interest?
Tassie Cameron: I’d say yes to both. You will meet a new love interest for Gail in this season and it will be a female. The actor always thought her character was a lesbian. She kept saying, “I think Gail’s a lesbian.” And we were like, “That’s really interesting.” We kind of had it in our back pockets for a long time. And when we finally did it, you know, we decided if we were going to do it there was no going back. Any love interests for Gail will be female.
AfterEllen: In any case, I just want to see Gail playing gay.
Charlotte Sullivan: That’s not going anywhere. Some people have asked me, “Oh does this mean like you’re going to be bisexual?” No. Absolutely not. This is who she is. And I think it would be sort of in bad taste to make it kind of flip-floppy. That’s the thing I really respected about the writers, is that they were like, “No, once you do this, it’s not going back. That’s not happening.” And so that’s been a really powerful thing for me.
