Jake Peralta, an immature, but talented N.Y.P.D. detective in Brooklyn's 99th Precinct, comes into immediate conflict with his new commanding officer, the serious and stern Captain Ray Holt.
During the third season, Melissa Fumero became pregnant. The writers decided not to write the pregnancy into the show. Episodes later in the season show Fumero in large, billowy tops and carrying large bags to hide her growing bump. In the final three episodes, an arc which featured her character feigning pregnancy allowed her to work while visibly pregnant. The writers also alluded to this with a joke while Jake and Charles are fitting Amy for a fake pregnant belly; she turns to them and asks repeatedly if they really think she looks believably pregnant.
CORRECT-GOOF: Holt carries a revolver rather than a semiautomatic like Jake, Rosa, Amy, Charles and Terry do because the NYPD allowed any officer who purchased a revolver prior to the department's switchover to semiautomatics in 1994--such as Holt, who had been with the department since the 1970s--to keep them.
