Brooklyn Nine-Nine: Hostage Situation
January 6, 2016 7:32 PM - Season 3, Episode 11 - Subscribe

When Boyle's ex-wife Eleanor (special guest star Kathryn Hahn) holds his frozen sperm for ransom, he turns to Jake to help him "bring his boys home". Back at the precinct, Terry barely survives Amy's attempts to get his recommendation for a mentor-mentee program. Meanwhile, Holt and Diaz enlist Gina's help(?) in interrogating a tight-lipped perp with a surprising connection to her mysterious past...

I'm not ashamed to say that I didn't quite recognize Kathryn Hahn at first. I'm mainly familiar with her as the high-powered political consultant on Parks and Rec, and Boyle's ex had such a different vibe to her that I spent half the episode wondering if she was played by Hahn's younger, creepier sister.

In related news, Chelsea Peretti recently paid a visit to England to appear on the Big Fat Quiz of Everything.

I was also pleased with the scene around the 3/4 mark where Jake flat-out tells Charles that HE WILL GO TO PRISON if he fulfills Eleanor's ultimatum. As fast and loose as the show likes to play with proper (not to say "realistic") police procedure, it's nice to see them occasionally acknowledge that certain actions -- which might be defensibly funny from a sitcom standpoint -- are severe violations of public trust when performed by actual LEOs.

This was a great episode, I thought! SAM/SAM and Katherine Hahn's everything (and Holt dancing!) were very enjoyable. Also "Sometimes she calls me Gina... That's her own name."
