Since the premiere of the first Halloween special back in 2013, the much-loved 99th precinct started a tradition for its following seasons to follow and continue. This trend of Halloween Heist which was in a league of its own decided who the Ultimate Detective/Genius/Human is.
Started out with the aim of getting Captain Holt to loosen up, the heist proved to be a great way for the show’s characters and the audience and fans to enjoy these extremely entertaining and fun activities throughout the seasons.
Brooklyn Nine Nine Episodes: Ranked!
In order to know which heist was the best of them all, follow through the article as we disclose each Halloween special in our ranking of every Brooklyn Nine Nine Halloween episode.
1. Halloween II (Season 2 Episode 4)
The second installment of Nine-Nine’s Halloween episode follows Jake attempting to steal Holt’s watch off his wrist. In order to make things interesting, there is a bet that if Jake loses, he’ll do five weeks of overtime without payroll, and in the event that Jake wins, Holt will have to do Jake’s paperwork for a week.
While Jake hires a pickpocket named Fingers to accomplish the task, the precinct (minus Boyle) turns out to be playing a prank on Jake all along. Much to Jake’s astonishment, it is revealed that Fingers was already on Holt’s payroll which ends up in Jake admitting Holt to be the Best Detective/Genius.
2. Halloween IV (Season 4 Episode 5)
In this episode, the precinct gets divided into three teams: Team Amy (with Rosa), Team Holt (with Boyle) and Team Jake (with Gina). The mission objective of this episode’s heist is to try and steal a plaque by midnight.
While Jake’s original plan to use Boyle’s body double is derailed, he improvises by making the double dress up as Gina and eventually steals the plaque. However, team Amy and team Holt each end up with their own plaque with the real mastermind being Gina.
3. Cinco De Mayo (Season 6 Episode 16)
The fact that Terry fakes a gas explosion so the heist pushes back to Cinco De Mayo. While this heist was clearly over-the-top, this special episode added a fun factor different from the pace of the rest of the season.
The squad is divided into teams with Jake and Terry in one team and Holt and Amy in another. Their objective is to steal Scully’s medical bracelet. However, a number of chaotic events leading up to questions of who is working with whom, and the manipulations and betrayals among the squad result in one of the complicated heist plans.
4. Halloween III (Season 3 Episode 5)
The third season’s Halloween special takes on the competition between Holt and Jake. While both the team captains hesitate to pick Amy on account of her turning out as a traitor, she outsmarts both of them in a classic underdog pitch.
While both the teams attempt to achieve their mission objective which is to steal a crown, in the aftermath of all the hard work and brainstorming, it turns out that Amy has been the mastermind behind the heist making her the Ultimate Detective/Genius.
5. Halloween (Season 1 Episode 6)
The very first heist that began this great tradition comes up in the top 3 heists. With the challenge being to take Holt’s Medal of Valor from his office before midnight, Jake pulls out of the classic plots of the heist.

6. Valloweaster (Season 7 Episode 11)
If you wanted to see Rosa winning a heist, this is your episode. While she had this a long time coming, the episode doesn’t disappoint at all.
