‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ has returned for its final season and fans are really feeling emotional that the last ride has finally started. For seven seasons, it has managed to make everyone laugh with amazing stories and funny sequences. So, it comes as no surprise that the show is ending on its original network NBC.

Season 7 ended with the birth of Amy Santiago (Melissa Fumero) and Jake Peralta’s (Andy Samberg) baby. Meanwhile, Ray Holt and Jeffords found themselves stuck inside an elevator. While trapped, the captain and his lieutenant mastered the dance moves to Salt-N-Pepa’s ‘Push It’. The last season seems to have taken some time jump and it has already been revealed that it will focus on sensitive issues like the Black Lives Matter movement. But, the first episode is all about love and bringing people together.

Captain Ray Holt (Andre Braugher) is feeling alone and everyone in the team wants to make up to him. Meanwhile, Peralta wants to bring Holt and Kevin together again but no one is ready. They agree on visiting Holt’s Lake House on a trip and Peralta also calls Kevin to the house as well. At first, they don’t even see each other but Peralta takes the help of Terry to initiate a plan.

Peralta plans that he and Terry will bring the ex-duo for a picnic. They will lure them saying that a Corn Crake bird has entered the woods, which excites both of them. Initially, they don’t see it but Holt imitates the bird’s mating call and Kevin responds from the other side to the mating call. So, they finally meet and get frustrated. The duo finally gets together and spots a Corn Crake for the first time. But, Kevin has injured his eyes and can’t see it.

Holt helps him in describing the bird by holding hands. When they reach the Lake House, Holt tells Peralta that whatever he did actually worked and they both confessed that they still have feelings for each other. They decide to give themselves a try once again.

The first episode of Season 8 was a good start for the final journey and it seems, the latest edition will be all about love and making cops look good. A lot has happened after the finale of Season 7 and the writers changed the script for making those issues a part of the latest edition.

A moderately strong start to the latest edition and let’s hope, this ends on a strong note as well.

‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ final season returns with a new episode every Thursday on NBC at 8 pm EST.
