Last week's NBC Brooklyn Nine-Nine saw Debbie (Vanessa Bayer) facing the fallout of her "five-finger shopping spree" in the precinct's evidence room. A lot of shooting and cocaine later, Debbie's going to jail, the streets are a little safer… and Amy (Melissa Fumero) and Holt (Andre Braugher) prove themselves as competitve as ever. (check out Bleeding Cool's resident show expert Margo Staten's thoughts on "Debbie" here).
In our last preview for this week's "Trying", Holt asks Jeffords (Terry Crews) for a new beat – and things get a bit uncomfortable from there. In the following preview, we keep our focus on Jeffords – as he shares his thoughts with Boyle (Joe Lo Truglio) on what he should do with his guinea pigs Claire and Claire (you read that right).
Let's just say it goes about as well as you think it would…
"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.
