Brooklyn Nine-Nine has taken a lot of turns, but on Thursday’s episode, “Hitchcock and Scully,” the show revealed one of its most surprising twists yet.
SPOILER ALERT: Young Hitchcock and Scully were hot, and Brooklyn Nine-Nine fans don’t know how to react.
Like, do Young Hitchcock and Scully deserve a spinoff now?
When BuzzFeed News talked to actors Dirk Blocker and Joel McKinnon Miller, who play Hitchcock and Scully, respectively, in December, Blocker said finding out that the young duo were studs came as a surprise.
“See, we’ve done flashbacks before and the joke was always, ‘They look exactly the same, but he’s got a little more hair, he’s got whatever darker, no gray,’ or whatever, but they still look exactly [the same], it’s so weird,” Blocker said. “So for them to have gone the way they went was I thought — I think it’s brilliant.”
When asked if they had any input in casting the younger versions of their characters, McKinnon Miller said it was the work of the writing team led by creator Dan Goor.
“No, that was all their imagination,” he said.
