Can I get a hallelujah?!?! The thing I’ve been waiting for since episode one of New Girl happened this week!! “Cooler” will go down in history as the episode in which Nick finally kissed Jess…and she totally kissed him back!!
Sorry. Had to get that out of my system.
But honestly, if you’ve been following these reviews at all, you should know that I am a total Nick/Jess shipper. (What is that called, by the way? Jick? Ness?) Regardless, I’m a fan, so the last ten minutes of the show had me on the edge of my seat, waiting to see if they would do it or if they’d just tease us. She was in her bra! He was in his stolen women’s coat! They were locked in a room with everyone demanding that they kiss as part of the esoteric rules of a totally fun-sounding game Jess made up!
But…alas…it seemed like Nick was going to take the high road, although I got goosebumps when he told Jess he didn’t want to kiss her like that. It was perfect. And then, later, when they were alone in the hallway between their bedrooms, him alone for another night, her with Sam, he grabbed her arm, hauled her up against him, and gave her one of the hottest TV kisses I’ve seen in a very long while.
