Is Jake Peralta about to take romantic aim at someone other than Amy? At Longoria last, it appears so.

Desperate Housewives vet Eva Longoria will begin a three-episode guest arc on the Nov. 9 episode of Brooklyn Nine-Nine as a love interest for the jesting detective played by Andy Samberg. There is one teeny hiccup in these proceedings, though: She’s a defense attorney. And not just any defense attorney—one who is representing a thief who Jake has arrested.

“Jake meets his match with Sophia—she’s a whip-smart lawyer who some people might possibly consider to be attractive,” Brooklyn Nine-Nine executive producer Dan Goor told EW last week. “There is sexual tension between the two characters, but there is also the reality that cops and defense attorneys hate each other. The question is: Will Jake sleep with the enemy?”

Ladies and gentlemen of the TV jury, please direct your attention to the video player below, where you can see an exclusive clip from the episode, which airs Sunday at 8:30 p.m. on Fox.
