Was that the last we’ll ever see of Cece, Schmidt, Jess, Nick and Winston? Season six came to a close on April 4 and the show hasn’t yet been picked up. So, how did it all end?
Let’s start with Jess (Zooey Deschanel) and Nick (Jake Johnson), the on-again off-again couple that pretty much everyone has been shipping since day one. She planned on telling Nick how she felt about him after his book reading, but when he told his audience that the couple in the book were never getting back together, she assumed he was referencing her, so she stormed out and hid at Cece (Hannah Simone) and Schmidt’s (Max Greenfield) for the night.
Nick enlisted Schmidt to join him for a publishing appointment, which turned into a conversation about Jess. He couldn’t tell Nick how she felt, but he not-so-subtly reminded him why he didn’t want Jess to move into the apartment to begin with. Nick actually then remembered, aloud, standing in her bedroom, seeing her out the window the first time she was trying to get into the building.
He decided he needed to see her and rushed back to the loft; Jess was in the moving truck at that point when “I’ve Had the Time of My Life” came on the radio — yes, the song Schmidt, Nick and Coach sang to her in the pilot. With that, she jumped out of the truck, index cards in hand and ran back to the loft. That was when Nick found himself again standing in her bedroom, looking at her out the window.
After a bit of shuffling — he got the elevator down to her while she took the stairs up to him — the elevator finally arrived in front of Schmidt. A moving man was getting off as Nick tried getting in, and yelled, “Please go faster, I’ve got to tell my best friend I’m in love with her.” When he stepped out, Nick saw that Jess was already in there. With that, the elevator closed. When it opened back up, they were kissing. Yes, Nick and Jess forever.
They weren’t the only two who got a happy ending though. Aly (Nasim Pedrad) actually surprised Winston (Lamorne Morris) with the news that she had found his father. After much hesitation, he called and left a voice mail saying he was getting married and he wanted to meet him. Cece and Schmidt also got good news; even though they had to pencil in their alone time together, it apparently worked — she was pregnant. And while everyone found out before she did, Schmidt filled the apartment with roses. Swoon!
