Phenomenal! Showcases Penhall's Superior Police Instnicts!
This has got to be one of the ten best Jump Streets.
The teaser shows Corey and Dean getting married. Just as they're married the police come looking for them. Corey escapes and drives off in his late 1970s Chevrolet Nova, apparently leaving his new bride to face justice alone.
Penhall and Hoffs are called in to extradite Corey to whatever fictitious city the Jump Street gang operates in. Corey fakes an illness on the bus coming back, and they're forced to rent a car. They stop at a motel for the night, and as Hoffs heads for the showers. Corey reveals to Penhall that she murdered her father,not Dean. As Hoffs is showering Dean appears. He holds her at gunpoint, and negotiates with Penhall for the Lincoln. Corey, Dean, and Hoffs take off; Dean has the keys to his car. Corey and Dean reveal they plan to spend the night at a cabin not far from where they're at. They dump Hoffs, handcuffed, at the side of the road.
Penhall hot wires the Nova, and after a spell finds Hoffs walking along the side of the road, hands cuffed behind her back. The next scene is in the car; Hoffs' hands are, obviously, freed. She urges Penhall to pull over somewhere to call for backup. Penhall refuses, assuring Hoffs they'll catch up to the two lovers, telling Hoffs that if they call in the county police, Corey's father was choking Dean to death, and Corey shot her father in self defense. Corey and Dean will never see the light of day. They do catch up to Corey and Dean, and two scenes from the end Hoffs is sleeping against Penhall's chest as the two sit on a bench on the porch of the cabin. Dean comes out onto the porch, confirms Penhall and Hoffs have been there all night, and thanks Penhall. In the next to the last scene Fuller admonishes Hoffs for the report he calls "a piece of fiction," then tells Hoffs there's a good chance Homicide will reopen the investigation. Looks like Penhall was right.
