'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' releases tomorrow: Here's how S08 can pan out
NBC's widely loved comedy series Brooklyn Nine-Nine is returning with its final and eighth season tomorrow. While it is sad to bid farewell to our favorite squad, we can't help but wonder what plotlines will showrunner Dan Goor explore. Recent happenings like the Black Lives Matter movement will probably be included. Here are some other possibilities.
To recall, Jake (Andy Samberg) and Amy (Melissa Fumero) became parents in the S07 finale. And, we're going to witness how they manage to parent. But it will be interesting to see how makers carry the cop-show when anti-police sentiments run high in various countries.
Captain Raymond Holt's (Andre Braugher) entry in the 99th precinct had kickstarted the show's first season. Holt, who is the first openly gay active police captain in New York City, then came close to becoming the New York City Police Department Commissioner in season five. While the promotion didn't roll out then, it's likely that Holt would realize his dream in the final season.
Of course, with Holt gone, somebody will have to become the new captain and a likely candidate is Terry Jeffords (Terry Crews). Next in line, "Sarge" has acted as the standing captain before and everyone in the squad obeys him. Similarly, Amy might become a lieutenant, or even the youngest police captain as she always wanted to be! She's meant for greatness, after all.
Promotions aside, it's hardly a guess that the upcoming 10-episode season will have a Halloween Heist episode. The annual tradition involves detective work (read trickery) to be tagged as the "amazing detective/police-captain-slash-genius." We bet this season winner would be Scully (Joel McKinnon Miller) and/or Hitchcock (Dirk Blocker). As seen in the trailer, the "young" guns will shine this time and we're all for it.
The 99th precinct is coming to an end according to promotional material and we believe all core members of the squad are going to get separated by the end (still connected in the heart though). But the last hurrah cannot be satisfactory without Gina's (Chelsea Peretti) sparkling presence. An original cast member, Peretti last appeared in season six but we have our hopes high.
Doug Judy aka Pontiac Bandit (Craig Robinson) is one of the most well-written characters. Recurring every season, Judy's season seven appearance was one of the best and his return will be highly exciting. While witnessing Samberg and Robinson's comic timing and chemistry is entertaining, we expect Peralta to outsmart him in their last on-show meet. It'd be fun to see the duper getting duped.
