In our first week back on New Girl, we welcome back Nick Miller from New Orleans, and Jess is all out of sorts as she realizes that she still has feelings for him. Winston and Allie are working the long distance thing, and Cece and Schmidt are on the hunt for their first home, with the help of Allie’s totally incompetent sister.

Jess has spent the whole summer trying out new hobbies and projects in an effort to keep her mind off Nick and Reagan. In addition to wood turning, she sets her sights on helping Cece and Schmidt buy a house after Allie’s shockingly disastrous realtor of a sister.

Jess spends all episode in this kinda sad denim romper, and I see it as symbolic of her mind set throughout. Luckily she finally talks to Nick and finds out that he spent all summer writing his first book and dedicated it to her. Aww!

Since Winston has to let Allie’s sister (name not worth remembering) down easily when Cece and schmidt fire her ass, he decides to tell her that he’s buying a house and needs her help.

Not only does Winnie the Bish have a bitchin’ new beard (love me some facial hair), he’s really rocking that olive sweatshirt with the panther print. LOVE. And luckily, Allie takes it well when Winston needs to get rid of her sister.

In episode two, Jess and Cece spend the day canvassing for Hilary (#ImWithHer), and make a bet with Schmidt that if they can register five new voters, he’ll vote for Hilary, but if not, Jess has to vote for Winston in the upcoming election. And Winston spends the episode trying to help Nick with his “Long D” relationship with Reagan, and ends up flashing Allie in the process. Whoops.

Jess and Cece spend the episode rocking the “VOTE” tees (ha, rock the vote… I’m old).

Jess rarely wears jeans, so I’ll take this as an opportunity to say how great she looks in them. Cece too. Jess has her typical ballet flats and Cece is working the ankle booties. Perfect for drinking sorority girls into registering, even if they do want to vote for he who shall not be named… Ugh. At least they ditched the group before they could sign them up.

Unfortunately Jess still lost, but in lieu of having to vote for Winston, Schmidt made her dress up as my living nightmare…

Yikes.

Winston spends the whole episode mentoring Nick in the intricacies of “The Long D” in his more traditional printed, short-sleeved, button-down.

Still loving the old soup strainer, Winnie. And the fact that you have a closet full of costumes in which to have a FaceTime booty call. Impressive.
