'New Girl' series finale ends with epic prank

It was time to say goodbye to the beloved loft on the series finale of New Girl . Shortly before their wedding in the penultimate episode, Jess (Zooey Deschanel) had found out that she and Nick (Jake Johnson) were being evicted and had to be out in 30 days. Or so she thought.

The finale picked up a month after the wedding, with Jess and Nick inviting the crew over to tell them about the eviction. At Jess’s behest, it became a chance to relive the old times. Turns out Jess had kept all their seemingly meaningless stuff, including a stick Nick once used to fix the garbage disposal, and Schmidt’s (Max Greenfield) cast from when he broke his penis, which Winston (Lamorne Morris) mistook for a candy dish. And of course they couldn’t leave the loft without playing True American one more time.

But all was not as it seemed. After they had the moving truck packed, Schmidt pulled the door closed, revealing a big picture of Winston with “Gotcha!” written above his head. The whole eviction thing was just one last, great, elaborate prank by Winston. But since the truck was packed and they had already gotten a new place, Jess and Nick moved on.
