New Girl creator on series finale twist: "I was nervous about it because we’ve never done anything like that on the show"
Liz Meriwether says her "incredible writers" came up with one of the series finale's biggest reveals, adding: "We wanted to have the finale be emotional but not have it be too emotional, and this felt like the (message) of the show. It’s still a bit silly." As for what Meriwether regrets not including in the show, she says with a laugh: "I really wish that we could have had a Nick and Schmidt kiss in the finale, but I guess I’ll have to be satisfied with Schmidt telling Nick that he loves him."
