Also, we're forgetting about Schmidt here, and about the fact that Elizabeth, not Cece, brings out the best in him. Elizabeth brings out the heart of gold in our favourite douche-with-a-heart-of-gold. Cece and Schmidt may like each other, or even love each other, but they're no good for each other.
I think I might be the only one who wants Cece to get married - and here's why. What I love most about New Girl is that it's absurd, but its absurdity is firmly grounded in reality. The reality of break-ups, of being laid off, of losing direction in life, of bad decisions, of not always getting what you want. The reality of being a young adult. I think if Cece doesn't get married, the show loses something special and becomes yet another feel-good-happily-ever-after comedy. I don't want that. But that's me.
Realistically, apart from Schmidt, there is no good reason for Cece NOT to get married - arranged marriages are acceptable in many cultures. She wants to have a baby, Shivrang is ready to do so. Also, waiting till your wedding day to have sex is NOT a sign of hesitation - it's a choice that a lot of people make.
I loved everything about this episode. First of all - Young Nick and Winston were sooooo good!! The voices and the hair! Oh my gosh!!
Second - Nick/Schmidt/Elizabeth to a Boyz II Men soundtrack - HILARIOUS!!
Third - Nick and Jess and the hookup. It was done perfectly. And their reaction afterwards was priceless, I don't think they expected to feel that good after the fact. The next two episodes are going to be great!
@leslietyler - I'm pretty sure that was intentional, just to show how much of an idiot Schmidt can be. It was a joke.
The truth is out there...east of Portland. LOL!! I loved the homage to the X-Files, especially because Grimm reminds me so much of it, with the way that they integrate the fantasy with reality, and blend the serialized drama with the procedural. I think Grimm is doing a pretty good job of it so far, and I think this episode hit the perfect mark that would make it easy for new Tuesday post-Voice viewers.
I'm amazed that we're two seasons in and Renard has remained so enigmatic - and interestingly so.
This was the first time in most of this season that I've had any interest in Juliette. I just want to know what's going to happen when she gets her memories back and understands what a Grimm is.
As for team Grimm - I LOVED that scene in the cabin, when they all voged and Nick said, "How about a Grimm?". SO good.
1. The flashbacks were both awesome and sad. The good: it was GREAT to go back, especially to season one when Castle was cocky and hella fun, and the banter between Kate and Rick was priceless. The bad: the flashbacks just kinda helped demonstrate how different the show is; it's not quite as light-hearted and fun as it used to be. Even the music and the lighting is more somber.
2. Kate's hairstyles were best in the first 3 seasons.
3. I'd be okay with this episode if I didn't know it was supposed to air before last week's. Now last week's episode makes even LESS freakin' sense. Kate thought the man that made her a latte with hearts and roses AND willingly stood with her in the face of death - all in the same day - was taking her for granted???
It was okay. I saw it coming from the moment they checked into the hotel; I knew it was a ruse. Knew Robin was in on it as soon as Quinn walked out of the car and went next to her. I don't know - I think I'm underwhelmed mostly because we got the same idea on Castle a few weeks ago and it was much slicker. Dr Horrible and Captain Hammer even had the same reactions to the reveal.
I just want to know what Ralph Macchio eats. Goodness, he looks 30...he's 51!!
Interesting - I figured that the move from Friday to Tuesday was a promotion. Just was confused because it was near the end of the season. It's like getting skipped a grade, but at the end of the semester before finals. I'm just wondering how many people are going to jump into the show when the season's almost done. But I guess it might work since the show is part procedural; new viewers aren't totally lost at a random viewing.
@TJ - exactly. Castle's tried his best. It's her move - it's been her move for ages. Kate needs to open her damn mouth and talk to the man.
I'm enjoying reading all the comments.
I think Castle has always been somewhat childLIKE, but very rarely is he childISH and immature. Getting into a video game is not immature. He's lighthearted but he's never shied away from responsibility. The man was a single father who created a fortune through perseverance, who raised a very responsible daughter & "takes care" of his mother. His first relationship ended with Meredith cheating, and he tried with Gina twice. He's never been portrayed as anything but monogamous. Castle has never been anything but upfront and transparent with Kate.
I think any woman that expects a man to read her mind or figure her out for EVERYTHING is in for a huge disappointment (and I say that as a grown woman). Kate is constantly keeping Rick guessing, constantly keeping him in the dark, always at arms length, always at her pace. While she has come a long way, I will not accept that the troubles in their relationship are Castle's fault. He's tried his best. Kate needs to open her damn mouth and talk to the guy.
