Hope at the Cop Shop

I knew this would happen that Rafe and Hope would clash after she became commish. But Rafe is taking this too far, arguing with her over decisions and even saying he would not accept Eli on board. BTW, I don't see Hope acting much like the head honcho; I don't recall Abe sitting at a desk doing the normal detective stuff. Isn't Hope supposed to have a separate office and concentrate on running the station? Looks to me like she's got the same ol job.
