We’ve had our doubts about Nick (Jake Johnson) and Jess’s (Zooey Deschanel) relationship — even showrunner Elizabeth Meriwether has expressed her concern for the pair — but in tonight’s all-new episode the quirky couple is still going strong.

The episode’s writer, Kay Cannon, tells E! Online in an exclusive clip just how tricky it’s been to develop the duo’s relationship. “I think this episode was particularly hard," she says in the clip. "Jess and Nick are together and we wanted to tell a story that wasn't about their relationship but was about their relationship. My first draft was about them knowing too much about each other.”

The episode soon evolved, however, and became more of an adorable display of what it’s like for these two people to live together and be in a committed relationship. Calling the coupling “new terrain” Kay says the staff is excited by the relationship.

“Every episode is sort of like figuring out how their new couple-y dynamic fits within the loft,” she explains.

Head on over to E! Online to hear more of Kay’s thoughts on tonight’s episode, and don’t forget to watch the entire installment for yourself tonight at 9 p.m. ET on FOX.
