As soon as Nick (Jake Johnson) and Jess (Zooey Deschanel) met in the New Girl pilot several years ago we began fantasizing about their too-cute-for-words offspring (who would undoubtedly be rocking hipster glasses by age 3) so when the beloved couple seemingly got together in Season 2 of the FOX comedy, we were downright giddy.
However, as any good television fan knows, golden couples rarely stay together for long.
Even show creator Liz Meriwether has a limited amount of faith in the duo. “I’m pretty sure they’re gonna really mess it up in some way, but I don’t know exactly how,” she mused in a behind-the-scenes featurette obtained by TVLine.
For the most part, the rest of the cast seems to be in agreement. “I would like to see Nick and Jess break up,” Lamorne Morris (Winston) revealed before adding, “Then maybe get back together later on.”
Jake reasoned, “I think there’s a good chance Nick and Jess are going to screw up the Nick and Jess thing, but hopefully they don’t screw it up too bad.”
Despite what seems like an imminent demise, E! Online reports that it will be several episodes into the season before we see any kind of breakup. “In the fourth episode, Jess will be relying on one of her roommates for lessons on how to please Nick in the bedroom,” the site states.
And if you guessed that Jess turns to Nick’s best pal Schmidt for advice, then you’d be right. Seriously? We’re laughing already!
Do you think Nick and Jess are destined to be together? Sound off below!
