The episode (Fox, 9/8c) finds Jess and the gang traveling to Oregon for Bob and Ashley’s wedding — yep, that crazy pair is really going through with it.

The trip also provides a chance for the roomies to examine remnants from their pal’s past (including the aforementioned Jared Leto haircut, which shows up in a photo Deschanel provided for production).

“It turns out, Jess has a poster in her childhood room with a collage in it made of Jared Leto from My So-Called Life, and [production] put pictures of me from high school next to pictures of [Leto],” Deschanel tells TVLine. “I was like the female Jordan Catalano. I was like, ‘I guess I’m going to have to play his sister or something, close because it looks like we’re twins.'”
