When Captain Holt and the Sarge leave the precinct for the day on official business it’s time for The Jimmy Jab Games. Gina kicks it all off and oversees the Games (because she can’t be bothered to take part, basically). Obviously, Peralta’s got his heart set on winning, and is, as always, a bit too enthusiastic, and he manages to turn it into the Jake show. He wants Rosa to give him Katie’s number (Rosa’s friend) and she agrees (after some classic Peralta-esque persuasion) to give it to him if he wins. Go figure!
After the honorary bagel ceremony, the Games are off. First up was month-old Chinese food from the fridge. Whoever eats the most wins. This will probably win the title for grossest moment of the season, so thanks for that! They had the bulky-bulky run-run, where they all ran a course wearing bomb suits, and there was the obstacle course, too.
The guys all then played dress-up and had to keep their cover at all costs. It was the highlight of a pretty dull episode. Sometimes I wonder why the show has so many main characters. It’s a weird feeling, because towards the end of the first season I grew closer to the characters, and wouldn’t take any of them out of it now, but the show suffers because of it sometimes. It’s hard to keep track of what everyone is doing when they only turn up for four minutes of the episode.
We had to see Peralta fail at the end, letting Amy win, and proving that Katie’s number is just a smokescreen for him and Amy. So I guess there going to drag that one out for the long haul. Guess we’ll have to wait for season seven for Peralta to make his move.
