If it's not obvious, this contains spoilers. With that said, OH MY GOSH! Am I the only person who keeps replaying the scene where Nick grabs Jess and kisses her with so much passion like nothing else in the world matters? If I had to guess, I would say no. If you are a huge New Girl fan like I am, you probably spent that scene alternating between screaming for joy and yelling at the tv that this better be happening and not be a dream. Ok well that may have just been me, but you have to understand how big this is! The relationship between Jess and Nick (even after just one season) has always been a tense
"will they or won't they" kind of relationship. Every show has that couple and many people think that once those two characters finally get together, the show will go downhill and is never as good as it was when the tension was there (my mother's example was Cheers with Sam and Diane). Personally, I love when those two characters get together, it's my favorite part, because now I'm finally watching a show where people are happy in their personal lives and just have drama in all the other aspects of their lives. Anyways, because people think that the two characters getting together can almost ruin a show, I was surprised at how early the writers brought this on. Now, we know that Nick and Jess can't be together immediately because Jess is dating Sam, and that would be too easy (I know I said I love them getting together but there has to be a little challenge after the first move!). Obviously, this is going to be an ongoing issue, the question of "were they just still drunk?" (I mean, they were playing True American), the hiding it from Schmidt, Winston, and especially Sam, and Nick probably pretending it never happened because that's what his character would do. I am truly excited to see where the story line goes with this. I mean, they finally put it out there, Nick and Jess have feelings for each other! I only request one thing within this story line: the return of 'drunk Nick'.
In the end, Schmidt got Holly, Winston found out Daisy was single and was still able to talk to her, kind of, and Nick and Jess went their separate ways. Well, just into their rooms. The scratching comes back in the middle of the night. Even though Sam is in her bed, Jess calls on Nick to help her. He gets out of bed, wearing the trench coat over his pajamas. Turns out, it was just a dog. And the owner of the dog see's her trench coat on Nick. He returns the coat and Nick and Jess slowly walk back to their rooms, talking about how the coat gave him confidence and he liked who he was when he wore it (you know, for that whole day). And then, it happens: Jess says goodnight, turns around to her bedroom door, and bam! Nick grabs her arm and pulls her into him and they kiss! I don't mean a short, sweet kiss, I mean THEY KISS like their lives depend on it! He tells her that's what he meant back when they were locked in the room. Jess, speechless, just stares at him in awe. Of course, Sam comes out right after Nick has gone back into his room and asks Jess if he can throw her melon-head-Nick doll out of her room because it's creepy. NO SAM DON'T YOU KNOW WHAT JUST HAPPENED WHY CAN'T YOU GO AWAY?!?! (I may have overreacted) Ok, well, the doll is a little creepy but that's not the point! Now I just want to see the rest of the season! I have so many questions! Where is this going? How will the writers make this work? Will Brenda Song be crazy like in 'The Social Network'? Will Schmidt learn the difference between English accents and American accents? Only time will tell. For now, thank you God for DVR so I can watch this magical scene as much as I want.
