Episode Synopsis[]

After a surprising turn of events in the Nine-Nine's attempt to track down Adrian Pimento's hitman, the precinct drops everything when they find that Holt is in danger, with Bob trying to kill him. Amy and Charles leave Texas, where Amy was spying on Jimmy Figgis' sister, Maura, in a maximum security prison. They use Rosa's apartment as a safe house.


The episode continues from the cliffhanger from the previous episode "Bureau", where Bob has Holt at gunpoint. Jake and Rosa realize that Holt is in danger, and they travel to the hospital where they search for clues as to where Bob took Holt. They find Bob on the roof, and he is threatening to shoot Holt, but Terry and Gina appear, and Terry takes down Bob.

In Texas, Amy and Boyle receive the news that Holt is in danger and get on a plane back to New York. On the journey to New York, Amy is worried about the squad, and Boyle is trying to stop her from spiraling. During the flight, Amy worries that she won't receive the approval she wants from Holt and that she won't be able to acknowledge her feelings to Jake again.

Jake and the group have to move Bob to Rosa's apartment, and they do this by dressing up as hospital staff to transfer him without suspicion. During Bob's transfer, Figgis sends men to the hospital to take Jake and Terry out, and they have to fight back. Captain Holt successfully gets Bob out of the hospital by convincing a security guard that he is suffering from GDD (grandiose delusional disorder), with Gina's help.

When the group reaches Rosa's apartment, they are surprised by her living conditions, even having a vase with lemons in it because "the room needed a pop of color". Jake said he was expecting a home with 'rock walls, weapons everywhere and a waterfall for a door'. They then attempt to get Bob to tell them where the 'file' is, and while doing this, the power goes out and they are shot at by a sniper, which forces Rosa to leave Bob, Scully, Hitchcock and Holt in her panic room. When they get out, Jake reveals that the whole team tricked Bob: Amy cut the power in Rosa's apartment, Charles and Rosa made the sniper fire, and while they were in the panic room, Jake got the files.

A week later, in a celebration party, Holt announces that Bob Annderson and 75 of Figgis's men have been arrested, but Figgis hasn't been found yet. While Amy, Jake and Boyle are celebrating, Jake gets an anonymous call, who turns out to be Figgis. Figgis threatens to kill Jake and Holt for dismantling his operation and ends the call with a taunt. Now terrified, Jake quickly alerts Holt of the situation.

The episode concludes with a time jump, where Jake picks up a newspaper in his front garden and greets Holt by his alias "Greg", and Holt greets Jake by the name "Larry". They are in witness protection in Coral Palms, Florida.
