Episode Synopsis[]

Jake and Amy's wedding day is majorly threatened, and Charles and the whole squad rush to help save it. Amidst the chaos, Holt hesitates to open the email that will indicate if he has won his campaign for Commissioner, despite Gina's encouragement. Meanwhile, Terry gently pushes Rosa towards a potential love interest.[1]


The day of Jake and Amy's wedding has finally arrived as their rec center venue is set up, but Amy starts to freak out as their ring bearer just got the chicken pox, the cake hasn't arrived yet, and her veil is all dirty. However, Jake has it covered by telling Terry and Rosa to go to the dry cleaners for a rush job, suggest that Cheddar would be their replacement ring bearer (even bringing Amy's allergy pills just so she would not suffer an allergic reaction), and send Hitchcock and Scully on a fake mission to find a replacement band so they would be out of their hair. However, Jake soon gets an anonymous call claiming that there is a bomb at the venue that is set to blow up at 5:30 PM.

After getting the area cleared and calling the bomb squad, Amy wonders why somebody would do this, but Jake isn't too concerned as he believes there is no bomb and that the bomb squad will do a clean sweep of the area. However what they do know is that the person only knew about the location and time due to Boyle posting the wedding on the newspaper. To make matters worse, it turns out that Teddy Wells, Amy's ex-boyfriend, is now the captain of the bomb squad and as he is still in love with her, he spitefully does a full, thorough sweep of the building.

Meanwhile, Rosa tells Terry that she's taking a break from dating as she is having not much luck, but he tells her that the universe will provide her with somebody whether she likes it or not, especially when an attractive Uber driver, Alicia, arrives to pick them up. Terry gets excited and has a glint in his eyes about setting Rosa up with the Uber driver. Back at the 99th Precinct, Holt trains Cheddar to walk down the aisle, only to get an email from the Mayor's office that will tell him whether or not he is the next Commissioner of the NYPD.

With things spiraling out of control before the wedding, with Teddy taking his sweet time and Rosa and Terry returning from the dry cleaner's but forgetting to bring back the veil, Jake and Amy decide to figure out who the mystery caller was. Jake makes a prediction that it is someone who will become his archenemy. With another thing going wrong for the wedding, when the wedding cake arrives on time at 2:15 PM but it has to be left outside the wedding venue in the sun instead of a cool place inside, there is some good news. Despite the caller using a burner, Jake was able to trace the call from a nearby apartment of a person he arrested in 2008 and was just released from Rikers.

Amy wonders why the perp would be Jake's archnemesis, and Jake reveals that in order to obtain evidence against the perp Jake befriended him and gained his trust. The perp revealed a lot of personal details, such as his cancer diagnosis, only to be betrayed by Jake when he was arrested.
