New Girl’s Nick and Jess Bring the Swoon

Jess and Nick kiss in New Girl Season 2, episode 15, Cooler*****MAJOR SPOILERS for New Girl 2.15, “Cooler,” below*****

Did you see that scene coming? Because I did not see that scene coming. At least, not until the end of the season or even later. But last night, New Girl—and Nick and Jess—really went for it, giving shippers something they've wanted for a while now: a first kiss! And I don't know about you, but I thought it was pretty damn epic. (This from someone who has always been pretty ambivalent about the pairing, too!)

After basically being dared by their friends and potential hookups to kiss each other (you know, long story short—if you haven't seen the episode, what are you doing reading this??? go watch!), Nick and Jess spend the bulk of the episode locked out of the apartment until they do the thing already. Except that it turns out to be more nerve-wracking than they would have expected (if not at all surprising to anyone watching at home) and Nick actually ends up balking and refusing to kiss Jess, exclaiming “Not like this!” He tries to backpedal, of course, seeing that she's pretty confused/offended, and when this proves unsuccessful, he actually  CLIMBS OUT A WINDOW to escape the situation. Smooth, Nick. Smooth.

That's the end of that until the episode's very last scene, when, before the two make their way to their respective bedrooms that same night—where, mind you, Jess's very cute boyfriend is waiting—Nick grabs Jess and kisses the hell out of her. And she kisses him back. Again, it's all pretty epic. And then the kicker: “I meant something like that,” Nick says before disappearing into his room, leaving Jess looking as shocked as I felt. Whoa!

Did you catch last night's episode? What did you think? Any guesses on where those crazy kids will go from here?

@Eugie -- Yay! Looking forward to seeing whether they bring it up next week or try to pretend it didn't know, until something forces them to talk about it, hehehe.

This episode was so funny, and then that ending just...BOOM! Agree with redline--who knew Nick had it in him? He's such a mess and I'm certainly not convinced he and Jess belong together in their present state of immaturity. But

@bookstorecat -- They kept the anticipation up all episode too, which was well-done. Kudos to New Girl!

I loved it! Course, I love the show and last night's show was just so much fun. The boyfriend chanting with the rest, Nick out on the sill and Schmidt fainting. Just too good and then BOOM - Nick brought it and Jess was in!
