As the following exclusive first look reveals, the next episode of Fox’s hit comedy — airing on a special night, this Thursday at 9/8c — finds the not-yet-lovebirds hitting the town for a night out. Nick, however, refuses to confirm that their rendezvous is in fact a D-word.

What’s more, Dermot Mulroney‘s “Fancyman” Russell just so happens to be on his own date at the same restaurant, making things supremely awkward for his ex and his not-so-secret admirer.

      • I agree, there were so many ways they could’ve ruined it, but I feel like the writers have done an amazing job transitioning their relationship.

        • Me too. I think leaving two characters with obvious chemistry in limbo for too long in an attempt to keep viewers coming back has actually ruined a lot of shows. Only a few really trepidatious people, especially single people, in real life would flirt around such obvious tension for two years before acting on it.

    • The Nick/Jess coupling is making the show a million times better. The show is now more exciting! I literary can’t miss a single episode. It’s the best written and acted romance on television!

    • The actor who plays Nick is laying out the scene for us and how Nick asks her on a date, but doesn’t tell her that so she thinks they are just hanging out as friends. Then they cut to her ex who is on a date. Little snippets of conversatios which have not been in the promos. Then the actor is talking about filming the scene on location. Not much

  • I live in the US and I can’t see the video — It looks like an image to me with no “play” button. Can it be fixed?

  • I love the Nick and Jess relationship! Thank you, writers, for their amazing storyline. All the episodes are now more exciting and fun. I can’t wait to see Nick and Jess finally get together! Jake and Zooey have such great chemistry! That’s rare these days! Perfect chemistry with those two!

  • Hmmm….I bailed out on this show four episodes into season 2. I didn’t find it funny anymore.

    • You should watch the rest of the episodes. The season started a little slow but then it kept getting better and better every week :)

  • Ahhhh . . . what did they write? Torture

  • There’s so many ways & story lines they can come up with once they hook the two up…like picking up on that episode where his mother tells him he picked a keeper…We love this show and now have one of our grown kids popping over to watch it with us. Agree with the comment above, it is a believable storyline they have going on.
