[WARNING: The following contains MAJOR spoilers for Brooklyn Nine-Nine‘s series finale, “The Last Day, Part I and II.”]
Loads of Brooklyn 9-9 enthusiasts have been bummed when they discovered out there wouldn’t be yet another Halloween Heist episode in the present’s closing time. But in “The Final Working day, Portion I and II,” those people frowns really should transform upside down. There is, without a doubt, just one closing heist—it’s just not tied to a certain holiday getaway! And it’s crammed with all the hallmarks of those people legendary episodes: betrayals, twists, and even a several tearjerker times. Listed here’s how it comes about.
To get started, Jake (Andy Samberg) throws just one closing, “non-holiday getaway-connected” heist to rejoice Holt’s (Andre Braugher) previous working day. Terry (Terry Crews) states he can’t vie for the crown mainly because of his captain job interview, so he’s out (seriously, certainly — no methods this time). They decide associates, and Holt finishes up with Hitchcock (Dirk Blocker), who seems as standard through an iPad from Brazil, and Scully (Joel McKinnon Miller). Amy (Melissa Fumero), with Rosa (Stephanie Beatriz) and Jake, with Boyle (Joe Lo Truglio). They contend for a medal that states “grand winner,” modeled just after Holt’s medal of valor. Whoever has the medal at midnight wins. They set the medal in a tube, and that appears to be that.
But there’s a trio of twists𠅁st, Jake and Amy have prepared the entire point, mainly because they’re secretly functioning collectively. For the 2nd—Jake’s leaving the 9-9. He reminds Amy that he was fearful to have children mainly because he didn’t want to be like his absent father, so he desires to adhere all around and be there for Mac although Amy proceeds her occupation. “You’ve acquired this amazing option, and you can’t do it midway,” he tells his spouse. “It’s as well significant.”
The 3rd twist is that the heist is truly heading to be “The Ultimate Goodbye” — it’s a vacation down memory lane which winds up with entire squad at the Brooklyn Bridge. In buy for it to perform, he or Amy have to acquire the 1st leg, so they will need to get the tube 1st. The first aspect of the heist is a scavenger hunt committed to the previous 8 yrs of the squad via a sequence of clues they’re led to the vending equipment, Jake’s cannibal cellmate, Wuntsch’s grave, the space exactly where Jake manufactured the perps sing “I Want It That Way,” and, finally, the location exactly where Holt and Kevin reconciled and kissed.
They all operate out to the road, but a person’s currently taken the tube: It’s Gina! (And putting on a sweatshirt that states “Surprise Expose,” no significantly less.) Beneath the perception the heist is genuine, she places the medal in an armored truck and drives absent.
The squad now has to determine out how to split into an armored truck. Jake, with a magnet vest, at some point succeeds but Holt will get the keys to the truck by blackmailing Gina, telling her to hand them more than considering that her social media accounts have been hacked by Hitchcock and Scully. From there, he will get the medal from Jake and activates the magnets on his vest (mainly because of system, this is the heist and he offered the Jake the vest although in disguise). But all hope is not misplaced! Holt gave the medal to Cheddar, and Amy has a approach to get it back again. Besides… Rosa betrays her and rides off with Pimento (Jason Mantzoukas) to get the medal for herself.
There’s a fourth and closing twist. The entire episode, the groups have been heading just after dummy tubes that consist of sentimental presents for the squad, and Amy and Jake have been in command the entire time. But — Charles discovered out Jake’s setting up to depart the 9-9, and he storms absent, betrayed and heartbroken.
From there, all people chases their goals. Gina usually takes Rosa to the airport to get Pimento right before he leaves, considering that Rosa states she 𠇊lways believed they𠆝 conclude up collectively.” Jake goes just after Boyle to the location he 1st reported they have been very best buddies, and he provides him his present (a journal that declares them �ncy very best buddies”). He later on provides Amy her present, as well, a necklace with a binder on it with tabs for their entire loved ones. But just after that, he cuts her out of the heist—he desires to established off fireworks, and she wouldn’t allow him. And that’s exactly where points go horribly improper. Jake mistakenly sets off the fireworks although he and Boyle are even now standing up coming to them. He wakes up in a healthcare facility with Amy standing more than him, relieved he’s awake. He’s adamant he requirements to get back again to the heist. Then, the bombshell drops: “Jake, you’ve been in a coma for 7 yrs.” Besides… it’s not real. Amy prepared the entire point—she knocked him and Boyle out and established up the healthcare facility established𠅊nd she cuffs Jake to the healthcare facility mattress.
Amy has a 2nd approach: She’s throwing Jake a excellent goodbye bash, and her betrayal of him retains the bash a top secret. Jake breaks no cost of the cuffs, and he hunts Amy down to get the tube from her, but she doesn’t have it: An individual else has taken it. They, and the remaining relaxation of the squad, monitor it (mainly because of system it has a tracker) to Brooklyn Storage Methods, the location exactly where they labored their 1st situation with Captain Holt. If that seems suspicious, it is: Holt has prepared the entire point.
If you’re thinking what Holt has been up to this entire time, he was aiding Terry, who at 1st believed his captain job interview was phony and aspect of the heist, so he insulted his interviewer and stormed out. Then he returned to the precinct to vent, only to have Holt explain to him that was the genuine job interview. And he may possibly have just totally blown it. He and Holt hurry back again, and Holt provides a shifting speech about Terry… only for the interviewer to rip off his wig (it’s Patrick Stewart!) and lock them in the space. It was seriously all aspect of the heist! He will get Terry to expose the spot of the tube, mainly because he is aware of it, mainly because he believed he wasn’t aspect of heist and Jake considered him. From there, Holt acquired the genuine tube.
“The entire heist was a excellent goodbye approach,” Holt points out. He points out that he established up Terry’s phony job interview, he experienced Cheddar guide them to the Storage Methods warehouse, and then… nope! It turns out Gina and Rosa have the genuine tube (they acquired absent from all people when Rosa reported she was heading just after Pimento, which she wasn’t, seriously). Her other accomplice? Monthly bill (Winston Tale), the lookalike Boyle from an previously heist.
And then… nope, but once again! They all get betrayed by Monthly bill, who has the genuine tube, so they conclude up trapped in a storage locker. Jake unintentionally spills the beans that he’s leaving, which shocks the squad, but there’s no time to examine: They have to split out. Fortunately, Terry can bust via partitions, and he does, breaking the squad no cost.
They monitor Monthly bill to the precinct, exactly where they fulfill the real grand winner of the 9-9: Hitchcock. Of course, Hitchcock. He by no means seriously retired or moved to Brazil, and Monthly bill arrived by and offered him the tube for $40. This would make him the grand winner (yikes). “We’ll generally have the recollections of our time collectively,” a deeply dissatisfied Jake states. “So, I say we cling out, have a consume, and delight in currently being collectively just one previous time.”
So that’s what they do. Amy and Rosa have an psychological dialogue in which they trade platonic “I adore you”s. Gina usually takes a bunch of diamonds from the proof locker. Hitchcock and Scully hug. And Jake and Holt have a previous dialogue—he displays that on his 1st working day, Terry advised him Jake was a excellent detective, but he couldn’t determine out how to mature up. Now, he has. “If I experienced a son, and he turned out like you, I would be incredibly very pleased of him,” Holt states, bringing Jake to tears. Holt even would make the present’s closing “Title of Your Intercourse Tape” joke (“I guess in the conclude, we rubbed off on each and every other rather a little bit.”)
At the conclude, they all get into the elevator collectively, and as the doorway closes, Jake smiles.
As an epilogue of types, just one calendar year later on, Jake and the relaxation of the squad appear back again to the precinct for yet another Halloween heist—mainly because even even though a great deal has adjusted, Halloween heists are everlasting. “We’re in each and every other’s life permanently, no matter whether you like it or not,” Jake tells a bewildered, but joyful, Terry. And collectively, they all chant the only closing terms it would make perception for the present to have: “Nine-9!”
