An Internal Affairs investigation into missing case files (led by guest star Dan Bakkedahl) makes Peralta and Holt more than a little restless. Diaz and Jeffords go undercover at a silent disco to blow the lid off the Gigglepig epidemic. The not-so-awful truth about Gina and Boyle is finally revealed.

BONUS STUFF: B99's own Chelsea Peretti isn't just the First Lady of movement: Here's the trailer for her upcoming Netflix stand-up comedy special, One of the Greats.

"Is everything OK?"

"Nothing is okay. Wunch circling me like a shark frenzied by chum. The task force turning into a career-threatening quagmire. An internal affairs investigation casting doubt upon my integrity and you ask is everything okay? I am buffeted by the winds of my foe’s enmity, and cast about the towering waves of cruel fate. Yet I, a captain, am no longer able to command my vessel, my precinct, from my customary helm, my office. And you ask, is everything okay? I've worked the better part of my years on earth overcoming every prejudice and fighting for the position I hold and now I feel it being ripped from my grasp. And with it, the very essence of what defines me as a man. And you ask is everything okay?"

"Yeah. I hear ya. My dog has taken over my favourite chair. It's like, how did it all slip away?"

Captain Holt should be a poet.

At the rate that Dan Bakkedahl is guesting on Fox TV shows, I half expect him to show up on Sleepy Hollow tonight.

I think this episode somehow managed to top Halloween II for awesome Holt moments, and that's saying something. The Gina-Boyle deduction, PUT IT ON THE BOARD!, the “is everything okay” monologue...goddamn Andre Braugher is great.

Also, I love not only the idea of the silent disco but also the way the writers were able to turn “how can we set a scene at a huge drug-fueled rave and still have the characters talk to each other?” into a solid comic beat.

Also also, I can't wait to see Jake's long-term reaction to Holt's middle name. He's going to insist that “name bros” is a thing, isn't he.

Apparently silent discos are actually a real thing?!

(And just give Andre Braugher all the awards now. Yes, including the Nobel Prize for Economics, why not?)

Capt. Holt's speech should show up in a drama Emmy For Your Consideration. Masterful.

I felt the world needed a GIF of Little Terry dancing the hustle.

Holt's answer reminds me of why nobody actually wants you to answer when you're asked if you're OK. But it was so beautiful!
