Welcome back to my weekly review and recap of “Brooklyn Nine-Nine.” To catch up on previous coverage, click here.
Despite some familiar paths being taken in the season three finale of Brooklyn Nine-Nine, the episode is decidedly light on its feet, hilariously engaging and is a superb caper for the end of a strong season. I’m not sure I’m ready for the show to be off my screens until fall, but I’m more than ready to see what’s delivered to us at the start of season four because the Nine-Nine just got a huge shakeup.
If the last few episodes has taught us anything it’s that Brooklyn Nine-Nine should introduce more serialized narratives from here on out – which, I guess, they sort of are with the end tag of Jake and Holt in Florida. The serialization of the plot has amplified the stakes that the Nine-Nine have been up against and have given storyline room to breathe, something that’s been a persistent hurdle for the show with their limited running time and four act structure.
