Updated Spoilers! In a new interview with New Girl creator, Liz Meriwether from TV Equals, Liz talks a little bit more about this new dynamic coming up between Jake Johnson’s Nick and Zooey Deschanel’s Jess:
“I think Nick and Jess, in particular, are trying to figure out how they feel about each other. There are a lot of obstacles for them. They don’t have the kind of relationship where anything is easy,” she said. “I mean, they’re always at odds. They’re very different people and they are attracted to each other, but that doesn’t solve a lot of the problems that they have of just like Nick never showering and Jess is like effervescence and optimism in the face of Nick’s like hatred of the world and people. A lot of that stuff hasn’t been resolved and I think the rest of the season is really like them fighting their feelings and fighting their attraction and trying to figure out what they really want out of each other. It’s been really fun to write for and really fun to watch on set. The actors have been really great in sort of embracing this new dynamic.”
Do you think Nick and Jess’ differences will become a bigger obstacle than either of them thinks?
In New Girl creator, Liz Meriwether’s interview with TV Guide, Liz mentioned that there will be a lot of “running away” and “coming back” for Nick and Jess in upcoming episodes.
Now E! Online’s also relaying that Liz has confirmed that Nick and Jess aren’t quite ready to be together just yet.
“They’re definitely not ready to be a couple,” executive producer Liz Meriwether says. “What this is is acknowledging that they have this strong pull for each other. [But] I don’t think, a lot of times, one kiss leads to a relationship.”
Aw man, and we went and made those animated GIFs for nothing…. Don’t give up hope for Nick and Jess yet though! Check out these other spoilers for more Nick-and-Jess moments coming up in season 2:
