Terry Jeffords is a complicated man. He's a detective, a father, a talented artist, a yogurt connoisseur, and most importantly, The Ebony Falcon. This week, Brooklyn Nine-Nine brought another story arc to a close with Terry officially returning to field duty. Peralta and Boyle are busting a steroids ring at a local gym, and they want Terry's help in order to investigate a man named Brandon Jacobi, because he's the only one who could pass as a personal trainer, bouncer and assistant manager at a local PetSmart. But once they see Terry with his twins, Peralta gets scared that something will happen to him in the field, leaving them without a father, and so he does everything he can to keep Terry out of harm's way... even if that means botching his own investigation. Meanwhile, Gina's apartment has been robbed, and she becomes upset when she feels like Santiago and Diaz aren't doing all that they can to bring justice to the person who broke in.
Both Gina and Terry had significant moments of character development this week, with Terry finally becoming comfortable in his job once again, and Gina revealing that even though she appears to have no feelings whatsoever, she can still have moments of vulnerability. It's been fun to watch the characters delve further into the backstories and personal lives of the motley crew that make up the 99th precinct, and grounding these two oddballs in particular opens them up to a new array of plots, both insane and realistic.
But who stole the show on last night's episode, The Ebony Falcon? And does anyone know whether Kelly is Scully's dog or his wife? Anyone at all?
