Brooklyn Nine-Nine Wiki

Episode Synopsis[]

With the crime rate lowered, Brooklyn will be shutting down one of its precincts - permanently. The Nine-Nine is confident they will be evaluated fairly until the official auditor turns out to be Amy's ex-boyfriend, Teddy (guest star Kyle Bornheimer). The whole squad then must band together to try to save the precinct.[1]


After Gina recovers from her accident with a Halo brace, Holt informs the precinct that while crime in New York has declined, this caused the NYPD to consider shutting down one of the 22 precincts in Brooklyn. As such, an auditor is coming to inspect the precinct.

The auditor, however, turns out to be Teddy, Amy's ex-boyfriend. Jake and Amy spend time with Teddy to prove to him the precinct is fine, although both note he still remains the "most boring person in America". They find that as Teddy left his phone recording, they accidentally said rude things about him. While dining with Teddy and his new girlfriend Rachel, Jake and Amy retrieve the phone although they still tell Teddy about it. Teddy then reveals that he still loves Amy and proposes to her in front of Rachel, and is rejected by both.

Meanwhile, in order to pass the audit and give a good impression, Holt tasks Terry to fix a $21,000 Japanese copier that former Captain C.J. ordered. Despite the struggle, he manages to translate the instructions and fix it. Also, Boyle and Diaz were tasked with solving a rat infestation in the precinct. The plan was for Boyle to crawl into the vents in the ceiling to use wolf urine to herd the rats into the traps. They initially planned to use the break room, but Gina needed it for meditation, so they opted to use the evidence room instead. However, Boyle gets stuck in the air vent. Holt, Terry, and Diaz found out that the rats had chewed themselves free from the traps. Holt noticed a broken/chewed open, box. Diaz said it was from a 1986 cocaine dealer case; now the rats had eaten the purest cocaine in the history of New York. Now without any fear or pain, they return to the walls and attack Boyle, thinking he was a cat, and the rats cause him to shake up, break a sprinkler tube, fall through the ceiling, destroying it and the copier. Holt then uses Gina in order to get emergency services to fix the damages and the precinct is cleaned. Teddy arrives and announces that he has decided to recuse himself from auditing the precinct. The new auditor, Veronica Hopkins turns out to be Terry's ex-girlfriend. Despising him, she tells him she will shut down the precinct for good.
