New Girl 3.20 “Mars Landing” Review: The Hug

While other characters appear in last night’s episode of New Girl, “Mars Landing,” there’s no denying that, after the opening’s initial game of True American (It’s finally back!), this is a two-person play between Zooey Deschanel and Jake Johnson, as Jess and Nick, more hungover than they have ever been before, intensely examine their relationship. The fight that they have (Jess has their whole future planned out, while Nick would rather just live in the moment—he doesn’t worry about the future until it happens) is nothing groundbreaking or new to their relationship, and that’s exactly why it works for a catalyst that eventually causes their inevitable breakup at the end of the episode.
