"The Puzzle Master" is the 15th episode of Season Five of the FOX television show Brooklyn Nine-Nine. It aired on April 8, 2018.[1]

Episode Synopsis Edit

Jake surprises Amy with an investigation into a string of arsons connected to her favorite crossword puzzle author, Vin Stermley (guest star David Fumero). Meanwhile, Gina helps Holt jazz up his Commissioner candidate speech, and Terry, Rosa, Hitchcock and Scully argue over who is most deserving of the new detective car.[1]

Plot Edit

The show begins with Captain Holt announcing that Amy's Sergeant exam result has arrived. It is revealed that Amy has passed and is becoming a Sergeant. The dectectives are awarded with a typical Santiago victory dance.

Jake wants to make the last case he works with Amy as a detective as the best case ever. So, he chooses an arson case that is connected to the Saturday puzzles. Guest actor David Fumero (Melissa's husband) guest stars as Marvin "Vin", the smoldering hot puzzle-master / model. As the case progresses, Jake starts to feel the beginnings of jealousy. They solve the case at the end and Jake voices his feelings of Healy to Amy.

On the other side, Gina and Holt attend the meet-and-greet for the Commissioner election where they come to know that one of the three identical while males running has withdrawn to be replaced by a young female Captain (Olivia). In his quest to win the post, Holt tries to talk to the Chief and comes to realize that Olivia is not being considered as a "serious" candidate. He gives an opening speech where he threatens to withdraw if everyone in the running isn't treated equally.
