BROOKLYN NINE-NINE: Season 2 Finale Thoughts

May 17, 2015 by  


[Warning: this post contains spoilers for the second season finale of BROOKLYN NINE-NINE.]

BROOKLYN NINE-NINE concluded its fantastic second season tonight, and with the final episode came some major changes as Wuntch finally got her revenge on Holt: though he had blackmail material to get her to rescind his (unwanted) promotion, she threatened to split up the squad. So rather than see his detectives be penalized, Holt left the Nine-Nine (at least for now)…and Gina went with him.

What comes next? We’ll have to wait until the new season starts up to find out. But in the meantime, I had a few thoughts about the finale (and second year as a whole)…

  • We’re now 45 episodes deep into the series, and it struck me — again — as I was watching the finale how consistent the show is. From the very first episode, the show has been confident about the world it lives in, and who these people are. It might simple, but for many shows, that’s so hard for writers/actors, etc., to pin down. It has maintained its status one of the best shows on television.
  • Jake telling Amy about his feelings with an accent? Amazing. It was adorable watching them trying to navigate their undercover assignment without letting it get awkward. Now that they’ve kissed as themselves (versus being able to hide behind the undercover excuse), it’ll be interesting to see where they go next season. More denial? Awkward/adorable couple? Trying to hide a relationship from their coworkers?
  • Wuntch patting down Holt was uncomfortable, hilarious, and so. very. wrong. (And yet, even though she makes everyone miserable, I’d kind of like her to come back next year?)
  • Boyle leading Rosa to her surprise party was a good reminder of how great (and often underused) that dynamic is. Rosa has gotten significantly more serious with Marcus than I would have guessed; while I have some theories about where certain things might go next season, that pairing is a big question mark in my mind.
  • As much as I’ll miss Holt and Gina for whatever amount of time they’ll be gone, I’m really excited to think about who might join the show as the temp captain. Given the incredible guest stars the show has gotten thus far, I’m so curious who they’ll go after. (I’m voting Amy Poehler — who led BROOKLYN NINE-NINE co-creator Mike Schur’s last series, PARKS AND REC — or, really, anyone from PARKS AND REC.) Also, Andre Braugher? Incredible. His speech was one of his finest moments of the series.
