“Brooklyn Nine-Nine” dropped a major bombshell during Tuesday’s (Nov. 22) episode, “Mr. Santiago,” and it’s all we can think about.
At the morning briefing, Captain Holt (Andre Braugher) ended with, “And now on a personal note, I have some thoughts about Beyonce’s ‘Lemonade’ I’d like to share.”
First of all — Holt’s seen “Lemonade”?! And secondly — he has thoughts! We must know these thoughts!
Unfortunately, before Holt can tell us what he thinks of this masterpiece of music and filmmaking, Amy (Melissa Fumero) takes over the meeting to hand out Thanksgiving itineraries. Much like Jake, we wanted to know these thoughts “so, so much,” so we reached out to Neil Campbell, the writer of the episode, to see if he could shed any light on the subject.
“I wish I could be of more help, but Captain Holt’s thoughts on ‘Lemonade’ are like the Ark in ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’ — being exposed to them would melt your face off. If Jake hadn’t interrupted Holt and prevented him from expressing his thoughts, it would have been an utter catastrophe — not just to the squad, but to viewers at home across the nation,” Campbell tells Screener.
He does add, “I CAN reveal, however, that one of the characters is secretly a robot, or ‘host.’ You’ll never guess which one!”
While you all mull that one over, we’ve decided to take matters into our own hands. With no further ado, here are some of Holt’s best quotes, as applied to Beyonce’s “Lemonade.” We hope we make him proud.
