Tuesday on New Girl Season 4 Episode 9, Schmidt decided that this Thanksgiving would be a little different. Why? Because the gang’s all single at the moment!
Entitled “Thanksgiving IV,” New Girl Season 4 Episode 9 served up heaping portions of laughs as everyone brought dates and things went terribly awry.
The dates were selected by picking names out of a hat. As in whatever name a person picked, they had to supply that person with their Bangsgiving date.
Naturally Coach brings Ryan, Jess’ teacher crush, for Jess, despite the fact that Jess agreed to this idea in part so that she could get over Ryan.
Coach says her rule for not getting involved is a dumb rule, and the guys tell her to “bang it out” with him so that she can move on. Totally logical!
This backfires, though, when Ryan doesn’t want any part of it and instead, insists on a real relationship. Wow, this man really is the perfect catch.
After some heart to hearts, Jess realizes she’s scared to move on from Nick and is using the school policy as an excuse. It’s not really about Ryan.
She goes to see him at his house, and she’s all in, rules be damned. We have a good feeling about these two, even if she wears more than an apron.
Meanwhile, Coach’s date is a woman from Winston’s police academy, and she is jacked out of her mind which turns Coach off at first, as he’s intimidated.
Later, he realizes they have a lot in common and he comes around. Ditto Winston and the hot lunch lady from Jess’ school. She does not have a hard job.
Nick’s date, after he selected his own name, was Tran. Even that ended well, as Tran’s granddaughter shows up to pick him up, and hits it off with Nick.
Schmidt’s date, Nick’s ex Pearl, didn’t work out and Cece’s date never showed – until the end, when she pretended to be the housekeeper so he’d bail.
Those two look to be rekindling the passion as well. Time will tell in the coming weeks. Follow the link to watch New Girl online and see this episode, it’s great!
