Well, “New Girl” has officially relaunched the ship of Nick (Jake Johnson) and Jess (Zooey Deschanel) — though in true “New Girl” fashion, the writers got rid of Robby (Nelson Franklin) in a truly excellent way.

As the rest of the gang throws a party for Aly (Nasim Pedrad) over at Schmidt (Max Greenfield) and Cece’s (Hannah Simone), Jess and Robby decide it’s a fine weekend for a hike.

After broken glasses, a sprained ankle and a rainstorm land them in a cave, Jess and Robby discover they have way more in common than they ever suspect — they’re related!

Third cousins to be exact, with a shared Uncle Tony who has really long fingernails (ewwwww).

But that’s all the motivation Jess needs to get out of the cave, and back home to her friends. Obviously she and Robby have broken up.

Back home, it turns out Nick wants to eat all the raisins Jess didn’t eat in her trail mix — because she likes the chocolate and peanuts, and he likes the raisins, you see. What are the odds?!

He is, as they say, her lobster. The valuable lesson Jess learns here is that there is such a thing as having too much in common with a boyfriend (and not just the “being related to him” thing). But when Nick and Jess inevitably rekindle their romance, it’ll be kind of a bummer to lose Reagan (Megan Fox) — she adds such a fun, funny dynamic to the show.

What do you think? Are you counting down the days until “New Girl” gets Nick and Jess back together? Are you any more ready than we are to say goodbye to Reagan?

“New Girl” airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on FOX.
