Jake and Amy’s relationship definitely took the spotlight in ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s’ storyline.
The series showed the development of the relationship from a rivalry, to a friendship, marriage, and then having a son. But there are a few possible continuations for the relationship for it to still be the core of the series.
‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ is an American crime comedy series created by Dan Goor and Michael Schur. The show tells the story of Jake Peralta, played by Andy Samberg, who is a talented, but really immature, cop. He has a few conflicts with his captain Raymond Holt, played by Andre Braugher, who is a serious and cold boss. The show started on Fox and later on went to NBC.

Jake and Amy’s relationship
As we mentioned earlier, their relationship slowly became the main storyline in the plot. At first, the series was supposed to show only Jake Peralta’s journey and how he would deal with entering the team and especially how he would manage his relationship with his teammates and his boss.
After some time, the writers noticed that Jake and Amy’s rivalry started to catch the fans’ attention. It is noticeable that as the episodes go on, they start to understand each other and are able to tolerate working together. Their rivalry became healthy. After that, a really close friendship started with both of them putting aside their differences and creating a strong bond that even helped on their job.
The seal of their ongoing romance came when both of them said “I love you” to each other. This happened in episode 13 of the third season.
From that moment on, the series started to grow around their relationship. There weren’t any major conflicts between the two. Every little conflict they had to deal with ended up helping either one of them or both of them on how to move on with their love.
Many of these conflicts came to light because they were mostly related to career options. Jake and Amy are both cops who excelled on their jobs, so sometimes it is understandable that the relationship would shake a little because it was hard for both of them to balance what was their priority in their lives.
Jake and Amy’s divorce
It is a question fans have been asking and worrying about, a lot since the end of last season. Since Jake and Amy had a child, their relationship “drama” seems to have reached a peak. They are both excellent as cops, they have a really healthy relationship, and seem to have a perfect family. It’s been said by fans that the only way for the next season of ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ to be an exciting one is if Jake and Amy get a divorce or really deal with issues in their relationship.
‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ has found a formula that worked really well for the storyline. The romance was built up during the previous seasons but it seems to be overwhelmed by now.
Do you think a divorce or a breakup is the answer for ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s’ next season? What can we expect?
