Exploring the art of storytelling.

The Pontiac Bandit Returns (SPOILERS)


Doug Judy totally fooled us all.  I was trying to figure out whether Peralta would be right and Doug Judy would get away, or whether he’d be wrong and Doug Judy would cooperate.  I was not expecting the garbage truck to crash through the building where the “giggle pig” source was.  In fact, like Peralta and Rosa, I was completely confused as to what was going on.  Was it the “giggle pig” dealers?  Then, I thought it might be the cops, ready to arrest Tito.  But no, it was all of Doug Judy’s concocting.  I was completely caught off guard, and he got away.

Captain Holt is the best.  Santiago found out that Holt made a few mistakes on an old case.  Terry warned Santiago to not point out Holt’s mistakes because she’d offend him.  Ignoring Terry and doing what she thought was right, Santiago brought her concerns to Holt.  Instead of Holt being embarrassed and upset, he was thankful.  Even Captain Holt knows that no one is perfect, not even him.  Holt is one of the best characters on television.

One of my favorite parts of “The Pontiac Bandit Returns” was after Gina and Boyle attempted to have dinner with their dating parents.  So disgusted by the conservation, Gina just stood up and left.  On her way out of the restaurant, Gina grabbed a wine bottle off another table.  “Thank you so much,” she said, completely ignoring the people whose wine she was stealing.  I couldn’t help but laugh out loud.

The best part of “The Pontiac Bandit Returns” was at the end when Rosa was smiling because they caught Tito.  Rosa even giggled.  It was hilarious and almost creepy.  Never in a million years did I think I would see Rosa so joyous.
