Ever since we watched the New Girl finale, we’ve been tossing around the possibility of Nick (Jake Johnson) and Jess (Zooey Deschanel) hooking up. Those longing looks, that great chemistry, their obvious feelings for each other. Plus, they already live in the same apartment! Let’s face it — they’re adorable together. What’s really to stop them from taking their friendship to the next level?

Only one of TV’s biggest pitfalls — when two main characters who seem perfect for one another hook up, it can be satisfying at first, but the pairing ultimately causes the show to lose its sizzle (Moonlighting and The X-Files are classic examples). Perhaps that’s what’s stopping New Girl’s Jess and Nick from getting together?
