Updated Spoilers! Max Greenfield confirms to TV Guide that Merritt Wever will in fact be the girl Schmidt tries to reconnect with – in episode 22, “Bachelorette Party” – for Cece’s wedding.

Meanwhile, it seems that Schmidt is not going to try and win back Cece after all. “He will try and get a plus-one for her wedding and tries to find an ex-girlfriend of his [played by Merritt Wever],” Max Greenfield says. “And when he finds her, he realizes, ‘Oh, wait a minute. This was special when we were together.’”

Remember our spoilers for season 2 episode 23 of New Girl, “Virgins”? Well, show creator, Liz Meriwether revealed at PaleyFest this year that Schmidt’s “first time” will be with a girl played by Merritt Wever (Nurse Jackie) – who, TVLine has confirmed, will be an old college girlfriend of Schmidt’s.

“Wever will guest-star on an upcoming episode of Fox’s New Girl as one of Schmidt’s college girlfriends, TVLine has learned.

“We hear that Wever’s character enlightens a heartbroken Schmidt when he gets in touch with her as part of his quest to get over Cece.”

Is this also the girl from these spoilers here, that Schmidt contacts when he finds out Cece’s getting married?
