'Well, you know what? You enjoy all that while it lasts.'
yeah but at the end of the episode, he came back and held her hand…
Yes, when HE was available to.
Point is, the writers love to foreshadow. And I believe 100% this was intentional. Whether it will actually cause a problem later on? Who knows.
I find it hilarious how people over-analyze things like Zooey wearing a ring, but when it’s something that’s probably actually meant to be important, “nah! wouldn’t read into that.”
Liz specially mentioned they’d be off the honey–moon phase towards the end of the season (which is totally normal)–– does this mean a break-up? Or something super serious? Of course not.
But, I felt it was worth noting that they were obviously making a point with this. :)
It could be foreshadowing, but it’s also how them seem to consistently keep the humor between them too. Like when she keeps blowing off his story when he’s trying to help her in Clavado because she’s too focused on herself. Every time it’s happened, it’s in an episode where there aren’t a lot of scenes between them, so it’s like they’re trying to counterbalance the super sappy/sweet moment with something where they do their back and forth quips for a few minutes. Episodes like the last two where they’ve had so many scenes with just them, they’ve had long conversations where they’ve both been on the same page. I’m not saying it’s nothing, and maybe it will come up. But it seems like they’re doing it for the humor.
We’re gonna have to agree to disagree. :)
This particular moment, didn’t seem to be one for the sake of humor– even with Nick being ridic. I think it was making the exact point that it did.
The other high-fives they’ve had? YAY we fixed the t.v, YAY staying out all night, YAY high-five for sluts, YAY first date – it was exactly what you’d mentioned, a friendship moment, which they’ve always had, and still do.
This time – she was genuinely upset. “Good talk…”
Jess, being focused on herself – when she had like 20 mins. to make a LIFE ALTERING choice? Hardly applies. The episode revolved around her asking for help. And let’s be honest –– his story was last, for impact, sweetness factor. And paralleled Virgins when she asked to hear his story at the end again.
And OF COURSE they’ve been on the same page before, no doubt, and it’s adorable, and perfect ––
Doesn’t diminish what Liz said about them wanting to start to delve in deeper to the relationship/issues later on, and I just think this & the last episode, being forced to move in together, is all part of that plan.
Little things could/will build up, till they have the, “where is this going?” talk & face whatever truths (good or bad) we heard about.
Oh, I definitely see problems coming. It’s not even so much not listening to her, it’s the fact that Schmidt’s problems seem to always be the ones that get in the way of them being able to focus on themselves. This was a perfect example. Once again, Schmidt can’t seem to function without Nick and yes, that’s what interfered with Jess being able to have a conversation with Nick. Who ALWAYS interferes with them (directly or indirectly)? SCHMIDT. And not only has he put them in one room together, now he’s BACK IN THE LOFT too. Yes, it’s great that Nick is such a great friend to him, but I think their friendship is very uneven. There’s so few opportunities left in the season, but at some point I feel like they have to address Schmidt complete dependency on him. They’ve alluded to it so many times about how Schmidt needs Nick to feel better about himself. Now that Schmidt is broke and has really hit rock bottom, it’s almost like the Schmidt’s gonna hit the fan at some point.
