‘New Girl’s’ will-they-won’t-they couple took took a huge — and long-awaited — step on the April 30 episode. Stop reading now if you haven’t watched!
Remember when Nick (Jake Johnson) and Jess (Zooey Deschanel) kissed back in January, and New Girl fans lost their friggin’ minds? Well, the couple’s huge moment on the April 30 episode pretty much blew that lip lock out of the water — and into the bedroom.
The episode revealed how the friends lost their virginities — shout-out to Teen Wolf‘s Dylan O’Brien for snagging Jess’s — but the real “holy crap” moment came from the events of the present, rather than the gang’s reflection on the past.
Nick & Jess Finally Have Sex On ‘New Girl’
Yes, Nick and Jess finally bumped uglies, though there was nothing ugly about it. In fact, the Twitterverse couldn’t have been more pleased — nor more squee-ful — with the way Jake and Zoey portrayed the highly anticipated act.
“We wanted it to feel honest and, honestly, hot,” showrunner Liz Meriwether tells Entertainment Weekly. “What’s fun is doing a genuinely sexy romance in a sitcom. That doesn’t always happen. … The characters themselves are such idiots when it comes to each other that it’s fun to figure out what new idiotic thing they will get up to.”
Liz also says it just felt logical for ‘Ness’ to hit the sheets at this point in the series.
“We were worried that it would come too soon, but we felt like, in reality, these characters would probably take that step,” Liz continues. “They’ve been back and forth and called it off, and basically they’re totally confused about how they feel about each other. We felt like they would realistically find themselves in that situation.”
What Will Happen To Nick & Jess In Season 3?
With only two episodes left on New Girl‘s second season, there’s a lot of relationship ‘stuff’ to wade through in a very short amount of time, but Liz says fans will get the answers they’re looking for — and it sounds like the showmance will have legs.
“I know they’re going to do something interesting in season 3,” Jake says. “Knowing the way Liz writes these characters, I’d be surprised if they just date and are happy.”
