New Girl Season 2 Finale Review: The Right Call

New Girl S02E25: "Elaine's Big Day"

As a reluctant Taylor Swift fan, I wasn't nearly as excited as I could have been for her guest spot as Shevrang's bubbly blonde ex, Elaine. The fact that she was theoretically going to be taking up valuable screentime during New Girl's season finale—when we'd all rather be focusing on Jess, Nick, Winston, and Schmidt for the show's last 22 minutes until the fall—didn't do much to raise my enthusiasm. At this point, I should really just stop being surprised when New Girl floats ideas that make me cringe and then executes them beautifully, but T-Swift and the wedding crashers are yet another addition to that list. Her cameo was short and sweet and, most importantly, hilarious as a tongue-in-cheek embodiment of an actual Taylor Swift song.

Gold star, New Girl. Now, back to the characters we actually care about.

Cece actually showed up at her wedding, Schmidt brought Elizabeth as his +1, Nick and Jess made googly eyes at each other despite Jess's dad's continued anti-enthusiasm for their pairing—the reluctant wedding of Cece and Shevrang was off to a good start. Then Schmidt walked in on Cece getting ready for showtime and claimed that she told him she was no longer okay with the wedding... with her eyes.

Well, he wasn't wrong.

However, like so many things the guys of New Girl do, Schmidt's approach might have been a little... wrong. Even Winston, always eager to overkill with regard to prank warfare, was a little apprehensive about Schmidt's plans to derail the nuptials and set Cece free—until Schmidt offered to let things get full-crazy. We haven't seen that kind of joyful light in Winston's eyes in awhile; plus, Schmidt's questionable decision to basically give Winston free reign over their sabotage strategy thrust Winston into a main storyline for once. It was an all-around good call, and I enjoyed watching him get drunker and drunker on the chaos he'd created. Winston doesn't get to cut loose very often but when he does, he embraces the freedom completely.

Less thrilled about Schmidt and Winston's plans was Nick, though his apprehension had less to do with sincerely wanting Cece's wedding to go forward and everything to do with wanting to abide by Jess's wishes that the guys behave. Nick's growth and his newfound sense of responsibility has generally been accepted as a good thing by we the audience, as well as by most of his friends and acquaintances on the show, but for the first time, the motive for Nick's decision to change was called into question—and by Schmidt, of all people.

Maybe it was more of Elizabeth's influence rubbing off on him, but the poster boy for embracing big, sweeping life changes (even if they aren't "you") accused Nick of altering the very fabric of who he is in order to appease Jess. The irony was pretty clear, and as one of those New Girl fans who sincerely believes that Responsible Nick is the real Nick, I spent most of that scene mentally telling Schmitty to STFU. The lack of faith that several of Nick's own closest friends showed him when it came to his maturity and his role in the wedding sabotage was understandable, but still disheartening. When Jess appeared to have caught Nick red-handed with the duct-taped soundboard blasting "Cotton Eyed Joe" and subsequently accused him of ruining Cece's wedding, it really wouldn't've been fair for us to condemn her because she should've known better because she couldn't have known better. Not yet. With Nessy ultimately surviving their sometimes rocky relationship waters this season, even after things looked pretty bleak for a good bit of "Elaine's Big Day," I would guess that fine-tuning the relationship will play a big part of Season 3.

In retrospect, New Girl managed to make Season 2 almost entirely about Nick and Jess getting together without dedicating huge chunks of storytime to their slow crawl toward romantic bliss. Certainly, they were showcased from time to time, but then so were Cece and Schmidt and later, Cece and Shevrang (so maybe we should do something about Winston and Daisy next season, right New Girl?). The overarching plot of the season never felt completely dedicated to one storyline, but rather to one broad idea that encompassed several storylines.

While we all have our own theories and New Girl itself has been slow to confirm or deny any of them in a concrete manner, the question of who the real Nick, Schmidt, Cece, and Jess are hung heavily over even the briefest of stories. Cece was forced to confront her real wants in life when she found out her biological clock was ticking a little faster than everyone else's. Jess's stint as an unemployed, then underemployed, former teacher forced her to reevaluate her professional plans and later, she struggled to rationalize her attraction to Nick. Flashbacks to Fat Schmidt have always been fun, but their real meaning for Schmidt as a character came to light after we met Elizabeth. And Nick feared turning into his father—a point that is still very much in play and with a little prodding from Winston, one that ultimately drove him back to Jess after she hurt him.

Though Nick has received a lot of criticism and judgement for his attempts to become a responsible, productive adult, it was losing Jess's endorsement that sent him back into the familiar arms of pranks and binge drinking. On some level, it probably isn't the healthiest thing to be so tied up in the approval of a single person that to lose that approval incites a spiral of self-destruction, but I don't honestly think that's what New Girl was aiming for here. Jess is Nick's person, and a lot of his motivation to change is because of her, but when all was said and done, it was Winston who talked Nick out of the bottle and back on track and made him realize that he could change for himself as well as for others. Their exchange encapsulated Nick's journey this season in just a few words and it did so without tying it all to his relationship with Jess.

After "calling it" with Jess, Nick retreated to the bar and told badger-battle-scarred Winston, "I'm gonna drink. Cuz that's my move."

As soon as Winston countered with, "You know, that was your dad's move too," the light came on and luckily, Jess was questioning their "break-up" herself. "Elaine's Big Day" ended with Nick and Jess driving off to future adventure, and maybe we could even make the argument that it's a happily ever after situation, but I would expect that the sentiment only applies to the immediate state of Nessy and by no means closes the book on what they are and whether their relationship will survive.

When Nick and Jess were first teased as a possible "real" couple earlier this season, there was some concern that the show's "obvious endgame" had come about too soon. What would the rest of the series look like if the two fated love interests ended up together by the end of the sophomore season? There was no need to move so quickly with New Girl's renewal never really in danger. What if it was the worst thing ever?

The thing is, though, despite being in a de facto relationship for most of this season, Jess and Nick only recently made things even close to official, with the anarchy of Cece's non-wedding finally letting them confirm to themselves that yes, they like-like one another and yes, they both really do want to be with one another, and sure, it could work—but it could still also not work. Season 2 brought Nick and Jess together and Season 3 will have to tackle whether they can remain together. Despite early concerns, now that we've reached the end of the season, I'd say that the pace at which New Girl is sailing the S.S. Nessy is just fine.

Unfortunately for Schmidt, however, successfully derailing Cece's wedding and ultimately doing a huge favor for everyone involved put him in an uncomfortable situation. Elizabeth or Cece? That is the question... and it'll have to wait until the fall. See you then, lovelies!


NOTES

– One–liner of the night: "I'm back where I belong. With Winston and a badger." Aww, Nickypoo.

– For any other series, I'd have a laundry list of wants for the upcoming season—yes, Glee, I'm talking about you—but I'm actually pretty content with where New Girl is right now and don't really see the need to issue demands beyond "more Winston stories." MORE WINSTON STORIES PLZ.

– What do you want to see when New Girl returns?

– Are you happy with the current state of Nick/Jess?

My big issue with season 2 is that I've felt like Jess has gotten way more conventional and Nick has gotten way crazier. I love crazy Nick, but without the extreme quirkiness of Jess it doesn't work for me. I love Jess because she's so weird and I'm a little upset that she's a lot more sane lately (minus the part where she and Nick shake their butts at each other). \

I also agree with the guy who said that they are going to "pull a Ross." We all knew at the beginning of Friends that Ross and Rachael would end up together, and we all knew at the beginning of The Big Bang Theory that Penny and Leonard would end up together. All you need is that shady "we're on a break" thing to make both characters come out looking clean and prime it up for a dramatic reunion later in the series.

Anyway, more Winston stories please!

Though I started watching the show just recently - as a guy I just had to have my prejudices - it didn't take very long until I got to love it. I watched both seasons within, uh, let's say the last ten days. What I really liked about the show was after introducing all those sweet and lovable characters in the course of the first season is how they have been fleshed out in season two. This goes, in my opinion at least, especially for Schmidt of whom I thought during most of the time of season one as the douchebag he is paying for in the jar. I also didn't like the Schmidt/Cece-Coupling very much. But I couldn't agree more, we need more Winston in screen! Also I'd love to see a little bit less cliché girlie Jess. She's actually a really cool woman but sometimes it comes to mind the writers feel obligated to, well, script her some really exaggerated girlie moments. All in all, New Girl is a great romedy (is there a word for romantic comedy yet?) show, maybe the best there is on television right now. I love it, and I'm looking forward to season three.

I know this is mostly a chick show anyways, but this show used to be watchable with my wife. It used to be pretty funny. The show is much funnier when the gang has relationships with people outside of the group. Nick + Jess, Schmitt + Cece, and Winston, who barely matters to the writers apparently... it's just all turning in to a contrived snooze-fest.

This episode in particular was boring and ultimately even kind of hard to watch. The strength of this show is the characters all being together and playing off of each other, but most of this episode has everyone paired up for the majority of the screen time. When you consider this was a finale, it's kind of a complete mess. Aside from the Taylor Swift appearance, this episode had very little "finale" feel to it.

Don't believe me that this was a weak finale? Think about last season's finale, where the group is off in the desert and the keys keep getting "lost". Even Schmitt breaking it off with Cece was an interesting and unexpected storyline. After a strong first season and a good start to season two, New Girl has become exceedingly boring in the past 7 episodes or so. It's probably no coincidence that is about when Jess and Nick became a thing...

I think long running dramas with underlying (if obvious) overtones of romance between character A and character B could really use New Girl as a parameter for their future relationship(s) plots. I've never seen a better, more well drawn/well written coming together of characters then on this show. And it's a comedy. Not Castle, definitely not Bones, even Fringe caught me by surprise with, "oh, btw, you should come back cuz i love you." This is how you map out a relationship folks. This is real.

THANK.YOU. I have been saying this for YEARS! Why do TV shows always think the fans will leave after the relationship finally starts? Because writers never used to think beyond it or be able to write for it... But there is SO much more that happens after a couple starts that is far more watchable! I have stopped watching shows because of the unrealistic tension that just never ends. I was ready to give up on Castle, but now the show is better than it's ever been! Writers, take a page from the brilliant minds behind New Girl, and start giving audiences realistic depictions of relationships so that we can actually have a backbone of how to handle our own lives beyond "But I don't know if this will work out long term so I'm going to end it before we even give it a shot and stare at you longingly for five years instead of actually doing something productive about it and find out for sure" (we all do it a little, base real-life on the "experiences" provided by entertainment) - I started throwing my pillow in the general direction of my TV when it looked like they were going to ruin this show with that.... And then I clapped when they were just being cheeky and proving they are WAY smarter than that! Huzzah!

Hi!

I reallly enjoyed this season! I think getting Nikc and Jess together was the best desicion they could make, I'd would hate if I had to watch them for seasons staring at each other, smiling and not facing their feelings, that would be cliche. If they're going to keep them together, I don't know, but I'm glad they decided to move on with this and write news stories.

I don't know how I feel about Cece, as many people said, she hasn't been at her best this season, and I'm actually enjoying Schmidt and Elizabeth.

Yes, more Winston stories please!!!!

P.S: sorry for my english

I really liked Cece last season but this season I can't really stand her. Cece's so selfish. I mean she's been driving Schmidt away even tho he showed her he loves her and everything. She says to him move on etc etc. And now she demands an immediate choice? That's really unfair.

This is exactly the reason I try to avoid commercials for upcoming episodes, so I can essentially "WTFLOL?!" at Taylor Swift jumping up during this episode. I'm not a fan, but I thought she was great here, and I like when people I laugh at can laugh at themselves. +1 Taylor Swift.

I have to admit that overall, this show was pretty funny this year. A lot of things still make the manballs angry (my God, Nick...my God), but I accept the show's range and I can laugh from there.

Jess still sucks. Who the hell tries to shove a wedding down a best friend's throat to throw a wedding? That's what parents of pregnant teens are for.

The main thing I appreciate about this show is that I now know I don't hate the actress that plays Elizabeth. I was positive that watching her play theee. most. annoying. character on Nurse Jackie and nearly all of television burned her in my eyes forever, but she's fairly cool here. A little obviously sad, but they all are, so she's in good company.

Anyway, I can at least say I kinda get it now. Glad it's renewed. And Jess still sucks.

Winston for the win!! I think he was the MVP in this episode: his lines were pure comedy gold and Lamorne never misses a beat, he delivers his lines perfectly. And we owe him the last scene between Jess and Nick. Hadn't he talked some sense into Nick, we wouldn't have had that sweet ending.
What I really appreciate about New Girl is that it never forgets that it's a comedy, even in the final scene between Jess and Nick (by the way, kudos to Zooey on her superb acting) just when I was about to weep they made me laugh. And I love that the episode didn't a have a cliff-hanger per se (like someone said before, even Schmidt's refusal to choose between Cece and Elizabeth was a decision in itself). Another plus: the soundtrack! I haven't mentioned this before, but they are doing a really great job with the choice of music!
I know I'm on the minority here, but I would really like to see Schmid choosing Elizabeth, for a lot of reasons.
A funny, emotional and overall solid episode to wrap up an almost perfect second season. I already watched it three times, and I like it better with each viewing. This is the show I'll be missing the most during the hiatus. :(
Best lines:
Jess's speech: I want to uncall it. Please, can we uncall it? And before you say no, don't say no. (for emotion)
Winston: Sometimes I feel like I've never felt love, you know? ...you know? (for laughter: the second "you know" had me in stitches!)

Jess is a HORRIBLE best friend. I know CeCe told Jess marrying is what she wants but come on... I think the writers need to take notes from Lost Girl. Bo and Kensi are perfect together. Bo is the star but she always has Kensi's back. Even if Kensi didn't realize she needed it. How could Jess be so unconcerned with CeCe? All Jess did was whine about her relationship with Nick. Who cares? Screw him until you get tired of it and move on.

Schmidt was great he took one look at CeCe and knew he must take action. Plus running away at the end was the smartest thing he could have done at the moment.

Coach should not come back. I love Damon Wayans Jr. on Happy Endings but he made his decision.

Winston was the clear winner this episode. His deadpan serious recital of his lines had me cracking up and rewinding the entire episode..

I think Jess felt that she had already questioned Cece's choices (Bachelor Party) and that now it was her turn to respect Cece's decisions. Sometimes all a friend can do is step aside and let your friends make their own mistakes, there's only so much one can say before actually telling someone how they should or should not live their lives. I also think it was a decision of the writers to make this about Cece and Schmidt. I mean, the whole "choose her or me" thing wouldn't have made that much sense if they hadn't rekindled their connection earlier in the episode (even through "eye conversation").

Considering how many chances New Girl had to screw up the whole Nessy thing and Cece and Schmidt, the show is doing wonders. And it's accomplishing it in a very dangerous area.

I like New Girl; it took a minute for me to get into it in season one but when I stepped away and came back in season two I got hooked. The finale was enjoyable for the most part but I did feel there were some hits and misses

Nick and Jess most likely have some misunderstandings that tear them apart and push them back together next season; so I'm ready for that ride next season not at the end of this one. I was happy to see them get together at the end; because it did draw this season to a tidy close.

Schmidt running away at the end I had to give the eye roll; because I've felt he's played with Cece's feeling enough over the past two seasons. Reminds me of an old saying, Get off the pot or pee. Elizabeth character actually doesn't fit in with the show; she's a downer that brings no energy to the frenetic pace of the show. I think we're not supposed to like her on purpose; so we can root for Schmidt and Cece.

My last gripe was just the way Nick ran off while Winston was bleeding to death; I know these characters can be self absorbed and distracted by their own drama but that wasn't funny; I'd liked it better if Nick had said to the Bar tender, "Call an ambulance!" and then ran out.

Everything else was good with the pranks, Nick and Jess getting together (For now) and Cece not getting married; that way we don't have to see Schmidt break up a marriage next season.

Thank you New Girl for not ruining the finale with sitcom cliches! The best thing about Nick and Jess is that they are funny! They are quirky, weird, unsettled, charismatic, passionate, and perfect for eachother. Because of this, there is so much available material for them as a blooming couple and it will be hilarious. Saying "I love you", proposals, engagement, wedding, pregnancy, rearing children, etc. Where these events could be tedious with so many couples - Nick and Jess will be awkward enough to make these events comic gold. And with Schmidt and Winston by their side there will be no stopping the comedy. I just see so much potential in the seasons to come. As for Schmidt, him not making his decision was his decision. If he had indeed moved on from Cece and fallen for Elisabeth then he would have made his choice immediately. Elisabeth needs to save herself some heartache and realize that sooner than later. Having said that, I don't think Schmidt should just rush back into Cece's arms. He asked her to come back, confessing all, and she rejeccted him choosing another. He should choose Elisabeth and give the relationship a chance but the heart wants what the heart wants and I believe eventually he will end up with Cece. Too hard to choose a line of the night - every line makes me laugh.

They definitely need to do something more with Winston next season. It's too bad the actress who played Daisy is on a new Fox show because I really liked her. I guess they will have to find someone new for him.

This was probably the season finale I was truly dreading, only because it meant no new episodes until September. :(

I agree stress the UTTER NEED for Winston to exist in real life and come be my BFF. He was so hilarious in this episode. I love when they let him go full-tilt crazy. Then he can just switch and be the guy with the sensible head on his shoulders. Just wonderful.

I am glad that they didn't have Schmidt make a decision. It wouldn't have felt true to who he is if he'd been able to pick right then and there.

I like how they gave us the cameo. Short, sweet, perfect caricature of T. Swift, and it really didn't distract from the episode.

And Nessy. I like that they are going to try and make a go of it but that they haven't figured everything out yet. That is true to the journey they've taken this season. As long as they don't do a let's break them up all the time route, I think it'll work.

Correct Schmidt move:

Tell cece that she was the one that broke it off and that was her decision. He is in a relationship with someone now and he can't drop everything just because she has changed her mind. This will help to make him a better person (loyalty, independance, less self-conscious, less of a douche) but will also force Cece to try hard to get Schmidt back or focus on her own stuff for a while.

I do believe in a long term Cece/ Schmidt, but they haven't earned it yet.

That was a funny episode (and seriously, I love Winston and you get concerned that they might overdo the Winston goes to far with pranks thing, but he is so funny when he gets crazy).

While good luck on the writers figuring out the Nick/Jess relationship as it goes (I was so happy they figured that out in the end and it seriously does seem to open a lot more stories than breaking them up would), what I hope comes from the Schmidt triangle is that Cece and Elizabeth (providing she can come back) actually become friends (like, Elizabeth notices that Cece is kind of by herself right now and suggests they get coffee and we can get fun scenes of Schmidt either hiding in his bedroom or in the hallway because he was prepared to have to see Cece on a regular basis as Jess' best friend, but both of them!

Awesome episode, I laughed almost the entire episode! Winston was badass, they really need him to shine more often with his weird comments.

As for relationships, as usual, I don't care as long the point of thow (this one comedy) stays in tact. However, if they going to try and make something different out of Jess and Nick as characters I rather have them apart as I like them both as they are now.

Ok I have read you comment about how another female cast member needs to be added to the show at least 20x times now. But why does it need to be female (this show isnt Friends nor does it need to be)? if they were to add anyone it would most likily be Coach

They'll never add Coach. Winston replaced Coach, because Damon Wayans moved on to other projects. Their characters are too similar, and Winston's funnier anyway.
Reply

How do you know they are the same? we only saw Coach for one episode and even so you can tell they are different characters. One big difference is that Coach in general cannot talk to girls. (with Winston it was b/c he really REALLY wanted to get with one, which caused him to get flustered). Plus enough time has past that Coach could have evolved into someone slightly different (hell all characters on this show have changed in one way or another)
Reply

I agree that Coach would not be a good choice to add as a sixth member because it creates more of the imbalance. The sixth member to be added should be a young female character in both Jess and Cece type to eliminate the complete imbalance.

Good episode. Winston was hilarious. I just hope the writers don't decide to split Nick and Jess up over and over again to create tension. I wonder who came up with that anyway because all it does is to destroy the fond memories and the second or third time a couple comes togehter it's never the same. So, please New Girl, while you're at it, break this idiotic sitcom trope and show us how a relaitionship works and evolves, with fights and tension and all the stuff that comes with it, but without resorting to the oh so easy break up.

Great episode, it was fun and really enjoyable. I liked that Winston got a bigger role and that Nick and Jess decided to make the frightening jump into a relationship. Now, I'm not sure why choosing between CeCe and Elisabeth is such a hardship for Schmidt. He started dating Elisabeth to get over CeCe and that was three weeks ago. I get that he's gripping his roots but he knows CeCe is the One for him. (Or maybe that's just how I feel, given that I don't really like Elisabeth.)

I think I should start watching the show again. Was the marriage an Indian themed one or just a one-off thing just for Jess and Cece (because the guys are in normal attire)? Zooey looks adorable in the saree. And in gaghra-choli, Cece looks like an Indian.

Could not disagree more with your Taylor Swift statement. Complete waste of time, and she has not improved one bit since her horrific turn in Valentine's Day. Horrible casting choice. Even as a meta moment there are similar artists to choose from who would have executed it perfectly.
