While it's hard to decide which Halloween episode of Brooklyn Nine-Nine is the best, the Season 5 episode is at the top of our list. It's the one where Jake uses the heist to propose to Amy. And, although no one is actually declared the winner, the proposal is kind of the best prize of all.

The Season 4 episode "Halloween IV" is a game-changer for the heist overall. Up until this point, the winner is named the Ultimate Detective / Genius. But when Gina gets in on the game, the title is changed to Ultimate Human / Genius, in the event that someone other than an officer wins. And from here on out, we get to see Gina as a big part of the heist.

Maybe the final heist of the series is further at the top of some fans' list of Brooklyn Nine-Nine's Halloween episode. For us, it lands near the top, just not at number one. It's full of heartfelt goodbyes as some of the characters go their separate ways and the winner at the end of it all is Hitchcock. He's named at the winner of the entire heist overall, even though the gang decides to take back the Grand Champion of the Nine-Nine title.

The very first Halloween heist episode paves the way for the entire series to feature a similarly themed episode each season. In the first one, Jake is intent on stealing Holt's Medal of Valor before midnight. He even gets the rest of the department in on his shenanigans and, by the end, he wins the first ever Brooklyn Nine-Nine Halloween heist.

The Season 6 heist takes place months after Halloween, but it's still played in the same vein. And, because Amy, Jake, and Holt all claim to have been the previous year's winner, they have a vested interest in winning this time around. Terry creates an elaborate ruse to trick the department, however, and at the end, he's crowned the winner.
