This episode was amazing. I knew it was going to be about Jake and Rosa and a crime scene but I did not know I would LOVE IT AS MUCH AS I DID!
I MEAN… LOOK AT THIS!
LOOK AT THOSE CURLS!
One of the many things I love about Brooklyn99 is Jake and Rosa’s friendship. From a thousand push ups to his support during her coming out, it’s so refreshing to see two friends being there for each other.
ROSA HAS A GIRLFRIEND! The fact that it isn’t Alicia is killing me. I totally understand her attraction to her! It’s Gina Freaking Rodriguez and she needs to come back.
My girlfriend Jocelyn has been practicing a bunch of different hairstyles on me, she’s in cosmetology school.Rosa
AND THESE ARE THE RESULTS:
SHE CAN PULL OFF EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM!
Aside from Jake’s total lack of toxic masculinity and zero insecurities about watching princess cartoons with his best bud Charles,
he gets so emotional he promises the victim’s mom to find the murderer. Because she reminded him of his own mother.
He is just a big softy childish man who really loves both his wife and his mom.
He and Rosa are so in sync it’s a pleasure to watch them work side by side. And it shows in Andy Samberg and Stephanie Beatriz’ camaraderie. They have great chemistry and they bounce off of each other in a mesmerizing and captivating way, like old partners who have known each other for the longest time.
I STAN THIS ONE (1) AMAZING FRIENDSHIP.
And I adored how they tied together Jake’s feeling for his mom and Rosa’s problems with her own mother after her coming out.
I loved how Jake got super deep in the case and spent two months working on it. He has a heart of gold and his episode proves it even more.
And when Rosa’s mom turns up at the precint, he can’t help but being super weird about it.
The parallel between 5×10 and this episode are one of the many many many reasons why I love this show.
This was a great episode, jam packed with comedy and I know it will become of my favourites.
Brooklyn99 requires multiple views: and no matter how many times you might have watched an episode, you will always find new details and things you might have missed before.
I love Brooklyn99 and I always will.

- Jake talking to Olive!Rosa
- More awkwardness with Rosa and her mom
. Jake’s Face in the second Gif. This is why Andy Samberg is amazing.
I’m still not over the annoucement of Lin-Manuel Miranda playing one of Amy’s brothers!!!
Also… I miss Gina.
