but i really want her to be happy with schmidt




This week’s New Girl not only has a great Nick and Jess storyline that had both funny and cute moments, but we also get a classic Winston/Cece messaround, not to mention we get to see Schmidt adjusting to having his own assistant.  So here’s everything that I can tell you about “Young Adult”.

Jess wants to be considered a “cool principal” instead of just someone who is constantly going to be laying down the law with the kids, so when she worries she may not be able to accomplish that, she has to enlist some help.  Enter Nick, who is a really big deal to the students at her school because they found The Pepperwood Chronicles in the library and are now obsessed.

Meanwhile, while Winston and Cece are getting ready to pack for Schmidt and Cece’s move, Winston finds out that Furguson is two-timing him with one of their neighbors.  So Winston and Cece must go against this neighbor to see who Furguson really wants to be with.

During all of this, Schmidt hires a very eager and overly-aggressive new assistant and soon starts to regret wanting an assistant that would anticipate his every need.

Then, Jess actually gets what she wants and becomes popular with her students when Nick comes to her school.  It’s accomplished when Nick reminisces about his past relationship with Jess, which pretty much blows the students’ minds.  But it soon backfires when Jess loses all control over them.

This was a really great episode, and I was happy to see so many great scenes involving Nick and Jess, including some with their typical bantering.  Plus, it was overall just a very funny episode and made me eager to see what’s going to happen next with everyone.

Here are a few things to look forward to:

  • The last Winston/Cece Messaround
  • Coffee Arguments
  • UPmost vs. UTmost
  • Nick stepping up to help Jess as she always does for him

Don’t miss an all-new episode of NEW GIRL airing Tuesday, Feb. 28 (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
