Brooklyn Nine-Nine Recap: Stakeout [WATCH VIDEO]
“Brooklyn Nine Nine” Season 2 Episode 11 “Stakeout” aired on Sunday, Dec. 14, 2014, at 8:30 p.m. on FOX. Jake and Charles volunteered to do a stakeout that took eight days. This tested their relationship as friends. Meanwhile, Capt. Holt’s nephew hooked up with Rosa, and things got a bit awkward. Find out what happened in this episode in the recap below.
Following last week’s big drug bust, Capt. Holt (Andre Braugher), Jake (Andy Samberg) and Rosa (Stephanie Beatriz) were all getting medals for a job well-done. The captain was super ecstatic as this was the day he would see his nemesis, Deputy Chief Wuntch (guest star Kyra Sedgwick), drape a medal around his neck. He would really like to gloat about it, but Jake advised him to take the high road. The captain almost followed what Jake said, but he couldn’t stop himself. He yelled “Wuntch time is over!” after Wuntch handed him his medal on, and you know what? The captain did not regret it one bit. He was really happy with what his team has achieved.
Back at the precinct, Jake and Charles (Joe Lo Truglio) agreed to do an eight-day stakeout. They were to watch a drop house used by the Ukrainian mafia, and its main man, Alexi Bisco. Sgt. Terry (Terry Crews), warned the two that being in closed quarters for that amount of time may not go well, but the boys were confident that they would not end up annoying and fighting with each other. In fact, this assignment was going to be a staycation for them.
So the sergeant and Rosa brought the boys to the room where they were going to do the stakeout. Terry advised them that it may be good to have “alone zones” in case they started annoying each other. That’s how the sergeant is able to let his twins get along. But Jake and Charles do not believe in alone zones. They were already having fun setting up the room and playing with the baby basketball that Jake brought. Day 1 of the stakeout was a breeze!
The next day, however, Jake sort of complained about the way his partner was chewing his food, but instead of setting up alone zones, the two decided to work it out and come up with “The No-No List.” This way, they would be aware of what annoyed the other, and thus, they would stop doing it. Easy peasy!
A few days afterwards and the list piled up as the two kept adding things that annoyed them. Eventually, the No-No List took up an entire wall, and the boys ended up arguing. They decided not to talk to each other for the rest of the stakeout. But on day 7, the two had a big argument about food, which frustrated Boyle, so he threw a basketball outside the window. Someone from the mafia group that they were supposed to be watching noticed this. The boys realized that they have compromised their assignment.
When they got back to the precinct, the captain ordered them to look for the Bisco and disallowed Jake’s request to work with someone else. They were still fighting when they discovered where Bisco was hiding out. But just like the team that they always were, the two chased after the perp and ended up making up and becoming friends again.
Meanwhile, in another storyline, the captain introduced everyone to his nephew, Marcus (guest star Nick Cannon), who would be staying at his house for a while. Gina (Chelsea Peretti) noticed that Rosa acknowledged Marcus and took this as a sign that she would like to “bone” him.
Later, Marcus, through his uncle, wanted to know if Rosa was seeing anybody, and the captain wanted it known that it was quite immature for him to be asking for his nephew. He was not a third-grade girl passing notes in class, and Rosa agreed with him. However, she said that she was still single and that she would only give her number if Marcus himself asked for it. The captain was stuck. Didn’t he just say he didn’t like passing messages along? But how would Marcus know about it?
Sometime later, the captain and his husband were having breakfast at home when down came Marcus with Rosa. She spent the night with him, and it got really awkward for everyone. It got even weirder when the captain handed her the bra she left at Marcus’ at work that morning. Rosa intended not to hook up with Marcus ever again. But we’ll see. The captain said he was fine with it anyway.
The third storyline to this episode was about the sergeant’s book. It contained his drawings of characters whose faces looked like his co-workers. He was giving this as a gift to his daughters. Amy (Melissa Fumero) admitted that she read the book and realized that the characters’ behaviors also reflected who they were, and she was bothered. Was this how the people actually saw them? Terry assured Amy that the characters had their worst traits and best traits, so she shouldn’t let this get to her. Gina, however, was not bothered one bit as she believed she’s perfect the way she is.
