Recap: ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ has one final heist in sweet series finale

Spoiler alert! The following contains details from the series finale of “Brooklyn Nine-Nine, “The Last Day.”

Was there anyway to end “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” to say goodbye but with a heist?

The series finale of the long-running Fox and later NBC police station sitcom stayed true to the original spirit of the show while offering a genuinely twisty, hilarious final heist paying tribute to some of the show’s best episodes. The episode also managed to balance sentiment with humor, avoiding the overly explanatory finales of some recent sitcoms (including co-creator Mike Schur’s “Parks and Recreation”) while still confirming that the folks of the Nine-Nine will be friends forever.
