"The Lake House" is the 2nd episode of Season Eight of the NBC television show Brooklyn Nine-Nine. It aired on August 12, 2021.

Episode Synopsis[]

The squad takes up Holt on an offer for a weekend getaway.[1]


Intending to help Holt on his separation, Terry suggests that the squad go with him on a weekend getaway at Holt's lake house to make him feel better. Amy brings Mac to the trip while Rosa starts using edibles to get herself through the trip.

At the lake house, the squad is whelmed at the fact that there is no lake in the area (it had been built by Kirsopp Lake) and that the house mostly consists of sitting rooms due to a technology ban. To complicate things, Jake invited Kevin to the house in an attempt to rekindle his relationship with Holt. The squad refuses to help although Terry secretly aids Jake. They plan a romantic meeting for them by having them meet while they are birdwatching. However, the plan goes awry when bees swarm the meeting and Kevin suffers an allergic reaction and Holt and Kevin realize Jake's plan. Nevertheless, they bond when Holt finds a corncrake and describes it to Kevin. Despite the moment, Kevin leaves the house. Jake then proves to Holt that Kevin still loves him through the birdwatch moment and they agree to go to couples therapy.

Meanwhile, Boyle asks Amy to help with putting Mac to sleep and she reluctantly accepts. She is frustrated to see that Boyle has no problem in taking care of the baby. However, Boyle accidentally locks Mac in his room after putting Mac down for his nap. Despite his attempts to hide it from Amy, she eventually finds out and crashes through the door to retrieve Mac. After a talk with Jake, she thanks Boyle for helping her but also scolds him for trapping Mac. Rosa bonds with Scully while eating chips under the influence of the edibles and agrees to go with him to Buffalo, New York to tour chip factories, much to her horror after sobering up.
