Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Season 2 Episode 9 Review: “The Road Trip”

(Beware, spoilers below!)

Rosa comes down sick with a cold, Jake and Amy end up going on a couples retreat and Boyle attempts to teach the Captain more about food.

There are plenty of funny moments in this week’s episode of Brooklyn Nine-Nine, starting with a hilarious starting skit about Jake and Boyle going undercover at the docks. The Captain’s anniversary with his partner Kevin is coming up and he recruits Boyle to try and help him cook a romantic breakfast. What follows is a hilarious comparison of differences between the Captain and Boyle, and whilst it initially looks like the two have fallen out by the end of the day, the Captain manages to whip up a great Croque Monsieur. “Now I know how Salieri felt.” says Boyle.

Jake and Amy have to go off state to pick up a perp that escaped bail, at therefore have to stay in a motel for the night. Jake invites Sophia and when Amy says Teddy would never do anything so romantic Jake decides to invite Teddy along. However he soon finds out this was a bad idea since Amy was planning to break up with him. Dinner becomes more and more tense until Amy declares the relationship over and Teddy blames Jake for the relationship not working out. Amy soon reveals that she fancied Jake back at one point and whilst it causes a bit of tension in Jake and Sophia’s relationship, they soon make up.

Diaz, on the other hand, is very much sick but is denying the situation. Terry enlists the help of a reluctant Gina to help out in controlling a Diaz hyped on medicine, which ends up with Gina locking Diaz in a room. Eventually they give her a cold care package and she even smiles in thanks.

“I’m going to rip your head off, Grandma.” says Diaz in her sleep. It’s a hilarious episode of Brooklyn Nine-Nine, which sees the entire team up to hijinks. It’s one of those episodes where all off the threads are promising and funny, and this makes for a great episode that still keeps the story ball rolling. Amy’s relationship status has changed, Boyle and the Captain strike up a friendship, and even the Gigglepig case looks promising. I even learnt more about cooking – who knew you should use your hand as the middle man during salting?
