Welcome back Jess!
For being a 100th episode New Girl Season 5 Episode 10 was extremely lackluster.
Maybe I've been spoiled by other shows reaching such a milestone and making their episodes memorable, but New Girl fell extremely flat.
It was nice having Jess back in the mix. I figured she would take an instant liking to Reagan, but her antics were predictable. Who else knew she'd fall for a fellow juror? It also wasn't a huge surprise she and said juror would have nothing in common and the relationship would end before it even started.
The only interesting thing to come out of Jess and relationships was the inkling of feelings she might still have for Nick. It was odd the way she was talking about falling for Nick at such weird times with Reagan. Could they be setting up an eventual love triangle between her, Nick and Reagan?
Speaking of Reagan, I knew she would eventually develop feelings for Nick. I just wish they would have found a way to keep her around longer so the relationship could develop more. I'm still not entirely sure their relationship will last, but Nick does deserve someone to make him happy.
I did appreciate the sweet gesture Reagan made by wearing the shirt Jess got her. No matter what happens, I really hope Reagan continues to stay friends with the loft mates.
Of course, the best moments of the night belonged to, no surprise, Winston. Winston has just been on fire this season. Taking part in a dance gathering didn't surprise me in the least. Winston always has a way of getting involved in some interesting activities.
I couldn't help but laugh at Winston and Cece trying to get Schmidt to just let go and let the music take hold. The whole flashback to Schmidt being bullied at the talent show was entirely too much. Schmidt's past certainly explains why he is the way he is.
I'm also really loving this more relaxed side of Cece. Even though she does have some insecurities, she seems to be letting loose a lot more. The whole dynamic between her and Schmidt has been a lot of fun to watch as well. Can we just focus on Winston, Schmidt and Cece for the rest of the season?
In the end, Schmidt let go of his need for perfectly choreographed dancing and just let everything go. It was a great reminder of why these people are friends.
Now it's your turn! Do you think Nick and Jess has a possibility of getting back together? Or do you think Nick and Reagan should give it a shot?
