Updated Spoilers! In his interview with E! Online, Max Greenfield (a.k.a. everyone's favorite douche, Schmidt), confirmed what New Girl creator, Liz Meriwether was saying about Schmidt and Cece this season.
Speaking of, is there any hope for Cece and Schmidt?
"There's hope, and then that hope is dashed. And then there's hope again and that hope is broken and if it goes back and forth, back and forth."
Would you like to see them together?
"Yeah, I would. I'm so tired. I feel like I'm chasing her every episode. At this point, like forget Schmidt! As an actor, I'm tired. I want to be in a relationship where we can just...like an episode where Schmidt and his girlfriend, Cece, watch TV, see what's on the DVR. 'What did we TiVo today, honey?' That's real life."
Ha. Looks like both Nick and Jess and Schmidt and Cece will be doing a lot of "back and forth" and "push and pull" this season.
It's not exactly a secret that we New Girl fans are itching to know what Jake Johnson (Nick) and the show's writers mean by a "big development" for Nick and Jess in this season's near future - but apparently, this "big development" is a secret!
"[E! Online] asked Jake Johnson if he had any specifics on the big hookup [between Nick and Jess], but of course, he kept mum. 'There's going to be a major development,' Johnson coyly reveals. 'There writing a lot more for us together for the Nick-Jess story to progress, and it's been really fun to do.'
This week's episode, "Pepperwood" was fun enough in terms of some (innocent) Nick-and-Jess action. So now of course all our brains are flying into high gear to try and figure just what's coming up soon on the Nick-and-Jess front.
If you're more of a Schmidt-and-Cece person though, I've got some spoilers for you on that front too.
"With Cece on the path to an arranged marriage, Schmidt will do 'everything he possibly can' to prevent that, Max Greenfield tells [TV Guide]. 'He's making a full push for Cece. Every time he gets close, a disaster happens, and then he gets back in the friend zone, and then he pushes again and then a disaster happens.'"
How many more disasters can one Schmidt take? Guess we'll be finding out soon. Do you think Cece will go through with this whole arranged marriage, and what do you think's going to happen exactly between Nick and Jess this season?
