Returning for its highly anticipated Season 6, NBC continues Brooklyn Nine-Nine, starring Andy Samberg and Melissa Fumero, in Episode 2: Hitchcock & Scully. After finding out who is the NYPD’s new police commissioner, how will Captain Holt (Andre Braugher) and the others handle the news?
When we last left off Jake (Samberg) and Amy (Fumero), they had finally returned to work after their honeymoon. Holt declared, “The Nine-Nine is at war with the NYPD!” With tensions rising, Holt has to deal with the consequences of speaking out against Kelly’s regressive policing policies.
In a flashback, Young Scully and Hitchcock (Alan Ritchson and Wyatt Nash) were involved in a sting operation against mafia boss Gio Costa. Back in the present, Internal Affairs is reopening the decades-old case because Holt suspects that Commissioner Kelly is trying to come up with a scandal against the Nine-Nine. Jake and Charles (Joe Lo Truglio) unfortunately discover money missing, making Scully and Hitchcock (Dirk Blocker and Joel McKinnon Miller) look like dirty cops.
Meanwhile, Sergeant Terry Jeffords (Terry Crews) and Rosa (Stephanie Beatriz) are having problems of their own. The upstairs people, which includes Terry and Rosa aren’t getting along with the downstairs people, which includes Amy and her uniformed officers. Holt prepares for a for his television interview with the help of Gina (Chelsea Peretti) while Jake and Charles follow their own leads.
Jake and Charles follow Hitchcock and Scully to Wing Slutz. Turns out the real snitch was Gio’s main squeeze Marissa, who was working undercover for Young Scully and Hitchcock. This was all actually a plot conceived by Gio Costa to find out who ratted him out.
Jake and Charles end up in the middle of a shootout, as Scully and Hitchcock take the bullets meant for Marissa. Scully and Hitchcock are saved because they were wearing — get this — by buckets of buffalo barbecue sauce.
While Holt deals with Scully and Hitchcock, Gina fills in for her boss during the television interview and manages to break a record for most viewer complaints.
Brooklyn Nine-Nine continues Thursdays on NBC at 9pm.
