TV Review: Brooklyn Nine-Nine, 3.07, “The Mattress”

“For Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s last couple of episodes, Jake and Amy have had the luxury of acting like a couple without needing to prove their couple bona fides. They’re an item, period. It’s true that “Halloween III” put a teensie bump in their road, but Jake’s paranoia over Amy’s allegiance in his prank campaign with Holt didn’t revolve solely on their relationship status. Holt, after all, shared in Jake’s distrust, and even when the writing circled around to deal with personal affairs, the story wasn’t about Jamy; it was about Jake and Holt, with Amy’s feelings playing only a small (if pivotal) role in their frivolity. The lovers’ tiff acted like so much window dressing.” (Via Paste Magazine.)
