Well, that sure escalated quickly. Last week's episode of NBC's Brooklyn Nine-Nine saw Debbie (Vanessa Bayer) dealing with the fallout of her doing a little "five-finger shopping" in "The 99's" evidence room – and also being under the employ of organized crime (also very important). A lot of shooting and a mountain of cocaine later, Debbie's going to jail, the streets are a little safer… and Amy (Melissa Fumero) and Holt (Andre Braugher) can and will make anything competitive (check out Bleeding Cool's resident show expert Margo Staten's thoughts on "Debbie" here).
Which brings us to the following preview for this week's "Trying" – and in this scene, Holt asks Jeffords (Terry Crews) for a new beat to make his time a little less "same old, same old". What follows is a discussion of favors – with Holt catching Jeffords off guard with his response:
"Brooklyn Nine-Nine" season 7, episode 6 "Trying": Jake and Amy work an uncrackable case while Holt adjusts to a new beat. Hitchcock looks for the love of his life.
"Brooklyn Nine-Nine" follows the exploits of hilarious Det. Jake Peralta (Andy Samberg) and his diverse, lovable colleagues as they police the NYPD's 99th Precinct. After Capt. Raymond Holt's (Andre Braugher) demotion to patrolman at the end of season six, the squad's world is turned upside down.
Rounding out the ensemble is the newly promoted Lt. Terry Jeffords (Terry Crews), a muscle-bound human mountain who loves nothing more than his three little daughters, except for a fresh carton of full-fat yogurt. The man loves yogurt. Reporting to him is Sgt. Amy Santiago (Melissa Fumero), a consummate rule follower with a weak spot for dork dancing and her husband, Jake.
The other detectives in the squad include Jake's best friend and human puppy dog, Det. Charles Boyle (Joe Lo Truglio), and the incredibly secretive, tough-as-nails Det. Rosa Diaz (Stephanie Beatriz). Also part of the Nine-Nine are veteran officers Det. Scully (Joel McKinnon Miller) and Det. Hitchcock (Dirk Blocker), whose only skill as police officers are their ability to make a passable pot of coffee.
