New Girl: 'Clean Break' Season 4 Finale Review [Spoilers near the end]

The Season Four finale of one of my favourite TV shows aired on Tuesday night and I'm pretty sure I still haven't stopped crying since I've seen it 42 hours ago.
I started watching New Girl when it first came onto my TV screen on E4 (possibly the best TV channel in Britain). However only recently have I religiously watched episode after episode of it in early March of this year, thanks to emotions and bleh (I petition this to be a new official word) which forced me to watch 3 whole seasons in 2 and a half days. Through this I've gotten really attached to the characters, their ups and downs and their quirky personality's. After all of this knowledge that I've acclaimed in my impressive 3 season binge, I have considered myself to be a Nick Miller. Quirky, failed writer, procrastinator and hoarder of rubbish sums me up pretty well. Especially this video which, even though is less that 20 seconds long, I find hilarious for many reasons.

Anyway, onto the review of the latest finale to shine down on us with their presence. A few hours prior to me viewing this episode which I was really pumped for I went onto Facebook, which now I know was a mistake. The Official page for New Girl posted a MASSIVE spoiler just a few hours after the episode aired and everyone in the comments were fuming. I'm not even exaggerating, everyone was mad. I was annoyed and wished I hadn't seen it but one comment did make me chuckle a bit. Someone told the admin of the page to 'put a dollar in the douche bag jar'. If you know anything about the show you would laugh a bit after reading it (silent Anne-Marie nose exhales). 
So having know this spoiler I was ready to be disappointed at the lack of surprise there was but on the contrary, dear readers. I weeped. Ugly sobbed. Single teared, you name it. I felt it all.

Fair warning *clears throat*, SPOILERS WILL START NOW! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED! Thank you.
That was honestly a roller-coster of emotions that I was not prepared for. Firstly, Coach leaving AGAIN! Come on, because of my binge watching it feels like he just came back and now he's settling in with this beautiful woman and it's all so hard to take. This episode could be relatable to a lot of audiences going through things like saying goodbye and decluttering (I know I certainly am) so I thought this was a realistic representation of what happens in life and how to deal with it. This 'clean break' ideology can be used everywhere and is useful in most situations, even if it is something as perfect as Nick and Jess (sorry, not sorry).
Speaking of the quirky ex-couple, the 'sex mug' brought back many possibilities for them getting back together when one of them put it out on the counter. Would it work out? Do we want to see them back together again? Well, my personal opinion is HELLS YEAH! I would want them to go back together and have a wonderful happy ending. But who knows what will happen in the coming 5th Season, even if Jess will be missing in 4 episodes due to her maternity leave (naww).
Finally, the reason for my ugly sobbing. Schmidt and Cece getting engaged! Oh my, I was not expecting that whatsoever (apart from Facebook spoilers). It was beautiful and I just the love the way they both changed over time. It was like seeing your children grow up, not like I know how that feels. The flashback to the first thing he said to her was adorable and so well put together.
All the storylines, from Winston and Coach, Nick and Jess and most importantly Cece and Schmidt intertwined beautifully and provided a full circle to end the season with. It was satisfyingly awesome.
So overall New Girl has a lot to look forward to in Season 5 and I can't wait and I'm sure it will be worth the wait but for now lets bask in the cuteness that is Schmidty.

Thanks for reading my first review, hopefully I didn't do too badly and didn't ramble. I did but shhh no one has to know.

Over and Out,
