Finally: Cece's wedding is here. Would her wedding take place? Would she and Schmidt get back together? What of Jess and Nick?

After some amazing episodes this season, (the return of True American, their made-up game show, and the first Jess-Nick kiss as the peak), this show has lost some of its spark. It's still fun and enjoyable, but I'm getting a little tired of Nick and Jess's Daddy issues, and Cece and Nick's back and forth. This show was at once a breath of fresh air. Now, with a love triangle, a wedding finale, and a big guest appearance, it feels more of the same.

Highlights were:

-- Winston. He was awesome. His love for pranks is hilarious.
-- Cece and Shivrang drama finally ending.
-- Nick and Jess together (well, we'll see).
-- Nick and Jess's chemistry. It's uncanny how good it is.
-- "Cotton Eyed Joe."
-- Taylor Swift mocking her own songs. Cool.


-- Indian weddings are full of traditions, music, dancing, and fun. Trust me, I've been to many. After hyping up Cece's Indian heritage this season, the event could have been a great spectacle. Sadly, it was the opposite.
-- Schmidt not being able to make up his mind. Pick a girl. Stop being annoying.
-- The reemergence of NIck and Jess doubts, hours after they proclaimed their fondness for each other. Their waffling is getting old.

The finale wasn't horrible, but it wasn't even one of the top five best episodes this season. Still, "New Girl" is a great show, and I'm hoping it will bring back more of its original charm next season.

What did you think of the finale? Were you surprised? Did you enjoy it? Leave your thoughts in the comments.
