New Girl 3.18 “Sister III” Review: Time Well Wasted

“Sister III” is an improvement over the first two “Sister” installments of New Girl, but in some ways, it’s the most frustrating episode of the bunch because it illustrates how much untapped potential there was to explore in the relationship between Jess and Abby. Simply look at the pair’s final scene together, where Zooey Deschanel and Linda Cardellini act the heck out of a sweet, genuine sisterly moment, as Jess tells her sister, “You’re Abby Freaking Day. You can do whatever you want. Except vote.” It’s touching, a little funny, and incredibly honest, and it makes me a little sad and frustrated withNew Girl because this is what I wanted more of from Abby’s time on the series, an exploration of her relationship with Jess rather than any ridiculous shenanigans with Schmidt.
