The last episode of New Girl was a sad and strange episode. What I was nervous about New Girl having a final season of only eight episodes came true during the previous episode. It’s getting to become sappy, reminiscent and boring. New Girl‘s quick off-beat humor has carried the show through six seasons and now it’s falling flat and I genuinely think it’s because of the short season. If there were more episodes the writers could have slowed down the pace of the final season giving the roommates and Cece the send-off they deserve.
The last episode started off at Furguson’s funeral. Ferguson was Winston’s cat that he was obsessed with. He was a running joke on the show because sometimes Ferguson would be gone for a stretch of episodes then magically come back. It was such a big joke that they even made an episode dedicated to where Ferguson runs off too.
The full-on cat funeral is strange, but very Winston. But then adding the detail that the cat died a year ago and because Ferguson was randomly Jewish it’s custom that stone unveilings don’t happen until a year later, was a lot. It’s like they were trying so hard to make this cat funeral EXTRA quirky. Coach came back this episode, so that was a big breathe of fresh air to the episode.
Now to even further rush the season along, FOX is airing back to back episodes this week and next, therefore airing the eight-episode season in six weeks. Tonight’s episode, “Godparents,” Winston starts getting anxiety over fatherhood. No doubt he and Aly pick their unborn child’s godparents. Schmidt returns to work for the first time since Ruth was born. My guess is that it doesn’t go well and he becomes a full-time stay at home dad and Cece is the breadwinner.
