Brooklyn Nine-Nine: Mr. Santiago
November 27, 2016 5:24 PM - Season 4, Episode 7 - Subscribe

It's Thanksgiving time at the Nine-Nine! Jake is meeting Amy's dad (special guest star Jimmy Smits) -- a retired NYPD detective nicknamed "The Lion" -- for the first time, and he wants to make a good first impression. Meanwhile, Boyle's attempt to procure a live turkey goes pear-shaped, and Holt and Pimento (returning guest/possible new regular[?] Jason Mantzoukas) navigate the seedy underbelly of dog show gambling.

BONUS B99 STUFF: Even though Amy cruelly cut off Holt before he could share his full thoughts on Beyonce's "Lemonade", the folks at Screener kindly provided a GIF montage of some of Holt's best quotes juxtaposed with Queen Bey's magnum opus.

I wish Amy were along for the case with Jake and her dad. It would've been a much more interesting dynamic. Having her isolated from that storyline for most of the episode weakened it. I get that the writers chose to do that for the sake of the moral, but it was so hackneyed. I expect better from this show.

I thought this episode was absolutely hilarious. I laughed a lot at all of the major subplots.

Of course, you never know when you might need to buy groceries.

Color me greatly relieved Pimento won't be an addition to the station. Mantzoukas is best in small quantities, particularly if they're going to keep him ramped up to full Rafi levels of sexual/impulsive/whacko.

On the other hand, I'm glad that they (at least apparently) aren't dropping him as though he never existed, as has been the case with basically every other character romantically linked to Diaz over the course of the show.
