I'll Be Home for Christmas
Everyone at the precinct is planning on being released early on Christmas Eve. Samuels arrests a guy in a Santa Claus outfit, and because someone releases him when he shouldn't have been released, Samuels is requiring everyone to continue working until the guy is caught.
Petrie's wife is expecting a baby, but something goes wrong. The situation with her gets worse, though. Meanwhile, the guy in the Santa Claus outfit has stolen a squad car and is on the loose.
The strength of this episode is in personal relationships. Petrie and his wife, Lacey, Harvey and their kids, LaGuardia and his girlfriend, and so on, plus the loneliness that Samuels is experiencing at the moment. It's a good episode.
