‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ Series Finale Aims for a “Perfect Goodbye” https://t.co/tW8dD9Xg2a— The Hollywood Reporter (@THR) September 17, 2021
The hour-long series finale of critically-acclaimed and fan fave comedy 'Brooklyn 99' aired tonight - or weirdly at 7pm EST because it was per-empted by fucking Thursday night football whatever.
Spoilers under cut with some key things that happened...
[NINE-NINE!]-- the entire finale's plot was around one final group heist game, but Holt and Amy, who announced they were promoted and leaving the 99 earlier this season, were using the heist as a ruse to surprise the lot with their big goodbye.
-- then Jake drops the bomb that he too is leaving the 99 and quitting the NYPD (for his son and family's future), so the heist was part of his ploy to say goodbye too
-- surprise guests include GINA LINETTI (yes Chelsea came back) in top trolling form, Pimento, Amy's annoying ex Ted, Fred Armisen, Tim Meadows as the weird cannibal, Andy Samberg's real life wife Joanna Newsom trashing Jake, and others
-- the person who won the heist was... Hitchcock, who was only ever shown via video chat this entire season. He pops back to the precinct one last time to win and fuck with everyone
-- Terry applies and is promoted to Captain of the 99
-- ends with beautiful moments between friends, including Amy and Rosa, and especially Jake and Holt
-- there's a fun epilogue, a year later, where the old 99 team bursts into one of Captain Terry's meetings to announce another heist is happening. The final words are, of course, a unanimous cheer of 'NINE-NINE!'
