And there is another reason to be excited for this episode - please welcome back to your TV screens *appropriate fanfare* Mr. Craig Robinson! You knew him as Darryl on The Office, but now he's on the wrong side of the law and hopefully in a role that will bring him back to Brooklyn Nine-Nine again.

So without further ado, let's dig into these sneak peeks! First up, a perp (Robinson) serenades Rosa (Beatriz) because, as she says, "Fear is a powerful aphrodisiac." Yeah, like that would be his only reason.
Speaking of Rosa, we gain a little more insight into her past when we learn that she attended the police academy with Jake (Samberg), and they have a code for "trust me." My gut says we'll see those one thousand pushups backfire eventually, but until then, on with the search for the Pontiac Bandit!
Meanwhile, after Boyle's (Lo Truglio) heroic save in the Christmas episode, he returns to the office with a few new quirks. And though he writes a weekly pizza ranking email, not everyone in the precinct trusts in our favorite foodie's selections.
Jake may have been tracking the Pontiac Bandit for eight years, but it has felt like even longer since we've had a new Brooklyn Nine-Nine. Isn't it great to have our favorite precinct back in action? [1/6/14 Update: And see more of the action with the "Pontiac Bandit" promo photos.]
