This relationship story is definitely one to see out the season, though with a second series already guaranteed, chances are nothing will really wrap up with the Jake/Amy relationship during the finale. My guess? Either a one-time hook-up or a profession of Jake’s feelings that would lead to an awkward working relationship in the future. But who knows? They’ve built up this story enough over this last run of episodes that I’m curious to see where it ends up, and they often seem to take stories in an unexpected direction.
The cold open with Holt’s injury was funny, though it felt a little off as a standalone, since most of B99’s cold opens continue into the story. I definitely wanted to see Jake trying to convince everyone else about Holt’s hula-hooping prowess, maybe trying to trick him into doing it. It was a great concept, but the transition into the first act felt a little off with the abrupt switch.
Overall the episode was a nice continuation of stories from the past few weeks, and is definitely setting up for an interesting season finale.
What did you think of the episode? Are you rooting for Jake and Amy to get together, or should the partners stay far away from one another? Any predictions for the season finale?
