When Nick’s attraction to Reagan starts affecting Schmidt and Cece’s relationship, they enact a plan to demystify her, in hopes of helping Nick get over her. Meanwhile, Winston teaches Reagan the art of the breakup.
Nick, Schmidt & Cece- So we continue this episode with Nick still freaking out over Reagan and how hot she is. He has to run into Schmidt and Cece’s room every time he eats and he says the dumbest things around her. And since Nick keeps running into Schmidt and Cece’s room when they’re trying to get it on, the duo decide to come up with some kind of lie about Reagan that will make Nick get rid of his feelings for her. And of all the ideas they come up with, they decide to tell Nick that Reagan wears a wig. This information starts bothering Nick, so he starts investigating by sniffing Reagan’s hair and eventually going through her stuff. Schmidt and Cece also decide to join along and we find out that Reagan has several fake ID’s, Canadian money and other items that make the gang curious. Reagan catches the guys in the act and reveals the reasons why she has these things and we learn one thing that she has in common with Nick; she doesn’t trust banks. Please refer to the episode “The Box” if you don’t know what I mean. We also see something else that she has in common with Nick in the end of this episode. She also eats like a slob. I guess Nick does have a chance with this hot girl after all. Also, on a side note. Schmidt and Cece’s foreplay is so weird. Seeing them talk about biscuits in a sexual way and just seeing Cece fail at making any kind of sexual innuendo. Priceless.
Winston & Reagan- We got to see another great character dynamic with Winston and Reagan being paired together. Winston wants Reagan to join in with the gang’s activities and so when he finds out that Reagan is bad at dumping people, he decides to help. The scene at the bar when they role-played the breakup between Reagan and the girl she was hooking up with was perfection! I think that was my favorite scene of the whole episode. Also, towards the end when Winston brings Reagan’s hook up to the loft, we find out more info about Reagan. She doesn’t like to let people in. We saw some of those feelings in the last episode, but I guess they had to emphasize it more in this episode too. I guess Reagan’s arc is going to entail her coming out of her shell a little bit and really being part of the gang until Jess comes back.
All in all, I thought this episode was ok. It wasn’t laugh out loud funny like the last couple of episodes, and I didn’t think the story really forwarded anything besides a little more detail about Reagan, but I hope we’re not already coming to some kind of slump in the Reagan episodes. Hopefully next week is better.
