Jake and Charles reopen a case that involved Hitchcock and Scully and gets a surprise of their lives. Here's a recap!
When Holt orders Jake and Charles to look into an old case that Hitchcock and Scully were apart of taking down a drug boss. They talk and even interrogate Hitchcock and Scully about where the fourth briefcase was, but wouldn't tell. But what Jake was so surprised that Hitchcock and Scully were studs in the 80s and wonder what had happened. Not telling, Jake and Charles get a clue that leads to a van, which Hitchcock and Scully locked them in and ran for lunch at Wing Sluts.
Meanwhile, Terry and Amy fight about who has privileges on the second floor. At one point, Amy fools Terry and Rosa as she agrees to their terms but gets someone to put a whole fish in the microwave and blows up. Holt runs out but when the new commissioner comes out of Holt's office he makes aware of what's going on. Holt stops him and asked him why doesn't he just reopen everyone's case files like he asked for Hitchcock and Scully. But the Commissioner didn't order one for them.
As soon as Jake and Charles catches up with Hitchcock and Scully at Wing Sluts, Jake gets a call from Holt that the reopening case was not from the commissioner. But instead, it was from the drug boss that Hitchcock and Scully arrested that got out of prison. Jake and them escape to the back with no protection. Hitchcock and Scully go out and uses the Slut Sauce to protect them, which it did after the drug boss tries to shoot the witness.
In the end, we learn how Hitchcock and Scully got to be what they are now; after saving the witness and let her keep the fourth briefcase of money to open up Wing Sluts. After one bite of the wing slut's wings, they couldn't stop.
I thought that this episode was amazing and hilarious. The episode had such a great development in characters and amazing backstory for Hitchcock and Scully. There were so many great moments from Jake and Charles interrogation of Hitchcock and Scully; to Gina helping Holt prepare for his television interview. The writing was strong along with the performance.
Overall, I give this episode a 9/10.
