8:00pm – Tuesday, July 17 on FOUR
New Girl comes to an emotional end when Nick (Jake Johnson) makes a decision regarding his future in the season one season finale, screening on Tuesday, July 17 th at 8pm on FOUR. The episode, titled “See ya”, sees Nick putting all of his stock in his relationship with ex-girlfriend, Caroline (Mary Elizabeth Ellis).
“I don’t think she knows she’s the worst,” Jake Johnson says of Caroline, Nick’s kryptonite. “A big part of Nick really has it together and is really smart, but she brings out the worst in him. Everything about Nick that’s bad works with Caroline.”
“The reason nobody else wants him with her is because together, they’re the worst – the hard thing is that Mary Elizabeth is the best,” Johnson adds.
So where does all this leave Jess (Zooey Deschanel)?
“People always come up randomly and want to have discussions on why I haven’t kissed her yet,” the actor continues. “They’re like, ‘Dude, how come you haven’t made a move?’ And I’m like, ‘Dude, it’s not reality, it’s a TV show. And I don’t have the power to make decisions.’”
But with the series’ conclusion, Johnson hints that “something” will happen on the Jess/Nick romance front. “I can’t say much, but she and I are alone in the desert and things happen with the evolution of that relationship,” he says.
Make sure not to miss this when New Girl concludes its first season on Tuesday, July 17 th at 8pm on FOUR.
