Brooklyn Nine-Nine 1×14 ‘The Ebony Falcon’: Like an enormous, muscular Ellen Degeneres

14-featured

Well, you can’t win ‘em all. This week’s episode of Brooklyn Nine-Nine was not my favorite but still a solid episode. I mean, you just can’t go too wrong when the episode is called ‘The Ebony Falcon’.

The Falcon in this case is Terry back in the field, helping Jake and Charles bust a steroids ring in a tough-guy gym. Everyone in the precinct is worried about Terry officially getting back in the field. After Peralta sees Terry with his daughters at home, he’s the most worried one of all and keeps trying to come up with strategies to get Terry out of the case or at least keep him safe. Nevertheless, Terry goes undercover at the gym as trainer Brent. ‘Black Brent. One of many.’ But before ‘Trent’ gets an opportunity to really learn anything, Jake compromises the investigation and brings their main suspect in to get Terry out of danger. Frustrated, Terry finally pulls rank and scares Peralta into letting him back on the field. I love that the Ebony Falcon’s catchphrase is that he ‘takes bad guys to jail and bad girls to bed. Except now the Ebony Falcon is monogamous and too tired for sex, so his only indulgence is fresh fruit yogurt parfaits.’ Of course, Terry handles himself with professionalism and takes down a whole bunch of guys without blinking. The Ebony Falcon is officially back!

Elsewhere, Holt assigns Rosa and Amy to look into the break-in at Gina’s apartment. Items lost include custom Joseph Gordon-Levitt nesting dolls and emotionally, the cost of all stolen goods is $700 million. Fed up with Gina’s attitude, Rosa and Amy want to give up on the case until Holt points out that she’s just scared and wants some reassurance. They decide to go to her place and help her install locks, and I love watching ladies helping ladies.

Honorable mentions: the dog or wife game from the beginning, Boyle as the gym manager, and Rosa taking Holt’s hypothetical question too far. ‘What kind of woman doesn’t have an axe?’
