I’ve gotta be honest, I had no idea what Oolong meant before I watched this episode (I’m more of a coffee person), so I figured that “the oolong slayer” was just another crazy name that Jake made up. Just to let you guys know, it’s actually a type of tea, which makes sense, because this killer sets up tea parties then kills you! AH! But this is Brooklyn Nine Nine, not Criminal Minds, so we only saw the comical way that Jake and Holt snuck around their personal roadblocks and solved it. What personal roadblocks, you ask? Jake’s was his Captain, the Vulture, who wanted all the big cases for Major Crimes, and Holt’s was Wuntch, obviously. Even with the odds stacked against them (including suspension), Jake and Holt caught the Oolong slayer, and Jake was able to make a deal with the chief of detectives so that Holt could come back to the 99. Yay! I never have to see the Vulture again—or hear his shitty music!
Speaking of the Vulture, he asked Amy and Rosa to plan his birthday party because women like to plan parties. This was a little reminiscent of The Office and the party planning committee, don’t you think? Maybe not. While both Amy’s party with two signature cocktails and Rosa’s “party” at a bar sound great to me, The Vulture is picky and wants to be the center of attention. So of course, being the lead singer of the band at his own party is perfect. Great job, Amy! If only the thank you gifts could have been earplugs given at the beginning of the party.
Oh my Nibs! That fat suit was not at good look on Terry Crews. But as a stressed out woman trying to make it through the minefield of my first year of teaching, I definitely understand and appreciate the stress eating storyline. Sometimes a delicious treat is the only thing that can ease your sad, worried mind. My own personal nibs are Doritos. I try to avoid them whenever I can. Back to Terry, hopefully now that Holt is back, he’ll be able to get back to the same Terry we know and love. Also, how is it possible to have a heart rate of 6 bpm?
