Captain KimBrooklyn Nine-Nine : Season 7 Episode 2
The show revolves around the fictitious 99th precinct of the New York Police Department in Brooklyn and the officers and detectives that work in the precinct. In this episode, the precinct is introduced to their new captain, Julie Kim. Despite her kind behavior, Jake and Holt are convinced she works with Wuntch and attend a dinner party to prove she works for her. Meanwhile, Boyle uses Rosa's jacket, which gives him more confidence in himself and Terry reunites with a convict he arrested 10 years ago.
"Captain Kim" received very positive reviews from critics. LaToya Ferguson of The A.V. Club gave the episode an "A" rating, writing, "'Captain Kim' is a great showcase for both Andre Braugher and Andy Samberg, as well as their back and forth. But unlike the premiere, there's nothing surrounding it (like the manhunt itself) that isn't getting enough attention or weight. Really, it's just a great sign that the first two episodes of this season are as strong as they are at all. Especially seven seasons into a show."

It aired on February 6, 2020.
Holt has primarily been the captain of the station in Brooklyn Nine-Nine's seven seasons thus far, but in several instances, he's replaced by a different commanding officer. Here are all the captains the 99th Precinct has had in the sitcom.
In Brooklyn Nine-Nine season 1, Holt was transferred to the station to replace the team's old boss, Captain McGinley, (Michael G. Hagerty) who had retired. McGinley's ineptitude and passive attitude enabled Jake's childish antics, making it difficult for the effective, but silly detective to adjust to Captain Holt's leadership style. It's also safe to assume that it was during McGinley's stint that Norm Scully (Joel McKinnon Miller) and Michael Hitchcock (Dirk Blocker) started really slacking with their work, leading to what they've become in the series. Later in season 5, episode 9 titled "99," McGinley is revealed to have died. To pay their respects to their former boss, the whole squad including Captain Holt traveled to Los Angeles to attend his funeral.
As Peralta and the rest of the detectives knew Holt better, they became more respectful and receptive of his leadership style in the station. On the flip side, Holt became more open to his subordinates, even joining some of their hilarious antics. This is also the reason why even during the brief times that Holt was briefly out of his post as the 99th Precinct's captain in Brooklyn Nine-Nine's seven seasons, his people still treated him as their leader.
At the end of Brooklyn Nine-Nine season 2, Raymond Holt's arch-nemesis Madeline Wuntch (Kyra Sedgwick) forced him out of the 99th Precinct by promoting him to become the Head of Public Relations of the NYPD. This left the station without any commanding officer until it's announced in the season 3 premiere that Seth Dozerman will take Holt's place. Played by guest star Bill Hader, the character's stint in the precinct and the show, in general, didn't last very long. During his introductory speech, he passed out due to his genetic heart condition which lowered his life expectancy. He bounced back after that, but when he caught Jake and Amy (Melissa Fumero) in the storage room kissing, he suffered from a heart attack, leading to his eventual death. Overall, he was only captain of the 99th Precinct for two days.
On the heels of Captain Seth Dozerman's death, the station was once again left without any commanding officer, leading to Keith Pembroke's appointment in Brooklyn Nine-Nine season 3. Most famously known as the Vulture, the character is played by Dean Winters. Prior to becoming the station's captain, Pembroke already had a bad history with the precinct as he used to take over the detectives' cases after they laid the groundwork for them. It also didn't help that he's extremely obnoxious and annoying. Regardless, Jake tried to cozy up with Pembroke; unfortunately, this backfired after the new captain forbade him and Amy from being in a relationship.
After few more episodes of Pembroke at the helm, Holt finally reclaimed his position as the 99th Precinct captain in the Brooklyn Nine-Nine season 3, episode 4 titled "The Oolong Slayer." That said, he returned to the show a few more times with his last appearance in the season 6 finale titled "The Suicide Squad."
During Jake and Captain Holt's time in Florida, while they were in witness protection, the 99th Precinct got a new leader: Jason C.J. Stentley. The character portrayed by Ken Marino was introduced in Brooklyn Nine-Nine season 4, episode 2 titled "Coral Palms Pt. 2" during the team's regular morning briefings. Weirdly, CJ knows that his hilariously unqualified for the job. When asked how he's able to rise through the ranks at the NYPD, he chalked it all up to luck. Apparently, he was supposed to go to a dentist appointment but got the location of the clinic wrong. There was an ongoing drug bust in the wrong place where he accidentally tripped the kingpin. He was given credit for the successful operation and was promoted shortly after that.
Holt's new partner may be a pigeon? The team takes down a perp at a storage facility. What did he do? Doesn't matter, because this episode is about the new captain and Boyle being a "bad-ass" (you rock that borderline feminine sexy leather jacket). While his magic jacket build his confidence and gets him digits, Captain Kim arrives with pleasantries, love, and manipulation (according to Peralta and Holt) to the '99.
In the cold open of the Brooklyn Nine-Nine episode, Rosa and Jake discuss the new captain. Because of their history with bad captains and because Rosa does not feel like meeting new people, she asks Jake to try and get rid of the captain by the end of the weekend.
In tonight's season seven premiere of Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Amy (Melissa Fumero) thought she might be pregnant, and she spent most of the episode either trying to produce pee or hold in her pee in order to take a pregnancy test.
She and Jake (Andy Samberg) had famously discussed the possibility of kids last season in an episode that was almost a little unpleasant. Jake had never wanted kids after how bad his relationship with his own dad was, and Amy always had. By the end of that episode, Jake did come around, and at the end of the first half of tonight's two-episode premiere, when the pregnancy test was negative, he had come around so much that he and Amy decided they could actually start trying for kids now. 041b061a72
