Nick (Jake Johnson) and Jess (Zooey Deschanel) officially ended their relationship all the way back in Season 3’s “Big News” — but is it possible the two could give romance another shot?
The exclusive clip from Tuesday’s (April 4) Season 6 finale has us thinking now’s the time for Nick and Jess to reunite. However, Jess has been having a hard time coming to terms with these feelings. Instead of simply confronting Nick, Jess has chosen every avenue of avoidance: First taking refuge at her father’s house, then avoiding his phone calls — and now, hiding in Schmidt (Max Greenfield) and Cece’s (Hannah Simone) kitchen.
We’ve seen Nick and Jess successfully move on from their breakup, but the relationships they’ve found themselves in haven’t really clicked: Jess and Robby (Nelson Franklin) were an odd pairing which obviously needed to end — they were third cousins, after all. And as much as we loved Megan Fox’s addition to the series, and the character herself, Nick and Reagan just never connected on a deep emotional level. If it’s one thing we’ve learned about Nick Miller, he’s as deep as he is emotional — and we believe Jess can offer that emotional support in spades.
And when it comes to that type of support, Nick needs Jess more than ever before. It seems he’s on the verge of getting his book, “The Pepperwood Chronicles,” published. To take this big step forward — achieving his dream of becoming a professional writer — rekindling things with Jess would only strengthen Nick’s confidence… Something he bizarrely lost sight of, being with Reagan.
Now all Jess needs is to come up with the confidence to tell Nick how she feels, and time is quickly running out. Will the Season 6 finale culminate in Nick and Jess giving it another go? For the sake of both their sanity, and ours, we sure as heck hope so! We are sold.
The Season 6 finale of “New Girl” airs Tuesday, April 4, at 8 p.m. ET/PT on FOX.
