If you’ve been dying for Nick (Jake Johnson) and Jess (Zooey Deschanel) to get together ever since their toes practically touched in season 1, you’re not alone. Well, Jake had an interview with the InsideTV Podcast and he let New Girl fans in on a little secret.
“‘There’s a big Nick-Jess development,’ reveals Johnson. SAY WHAT?!? That’s right, Johnson says that in an episode they just finished filming, we will see some sort of movement on the relationship that has showed some signs of becoming more than that of mere friend and roommate. ‘I think something potentially could happen sooner rather than later,’ says Johnson, to the delight of shippers everywhere.”
Could that development have to do with…speed-dating?
“By episode 16, which primarily takes place at an unconventional speed-dating event, Nick will be itching for some one-on-one time with Jess so they can talk, but private time proves harder to get than he hopes. See where this is going?”
I hope that spoiler just suggests what I think it suggests. Because Nick and Jess together at a speed-dating event just sounds like it’s full of win, doesn’t it? Will you be looking forward to episode 16 next year?
