Just when we thought things couldn’t get more intense, the Mindy Project throws us a curveball right before the season finale! Mindy and Jody’s relationship took a wild ride, and we discovered some jaw-dropping news about Danny.
From a Kiss to Chaos
Starting with Mindy and Jody’s passionate kiss, we witness their individual reactions. Jody’s first thought is to end things with Courtney as soon as possible, or at least postpone it until lunch the next day. Meanwhile, he raises her hopes for a proposal, only for her to surprise him with the revelation that he gave her chlamydia. While this shouldn’t be a shock to anyone familiar with Jody’s past, it serves as a massive reality check for Mindy when she receives a last-minute warning text from Morgan. Perhaps she believed Jody had changed and could put his past behind him, but not when it jeopardizes her health with an STD. Thankfully, she didn’t go through with that “Mindy & Jody” tattoo on her arm.
Morgan: The Unsung Hero
Morgan truly shines as the MVP for always having Dr. L’s back. If I didn’t know any better, I’d easily root for Morgan and Mindy as a couple, considering every other guy in her life seems to be ten times more problematic. Just look at how adorable they are when they share a platonic goodbye kiss! At the end of the day, it’s not about money or career; it’s about the person you choose to share your life with. In that regard, Morgan is the clear winner. Sure, he may sleep in a bunk bed with Collette and earn below minimum wage as a nurse, but his love for Mindy is unwavering, and he’d do anything for her. The same goes for Danny, which only complicates matters further. Morgan couldn’t pick sides in the breakup, as this likely wasn’t his first attempt to visit Dr. C at his new practice downtown. As Danny reminded Morgan, they don’t share custody of him – only their actual son. Kudos to Jeremy for standing up to Danny as well. Morgan kept Danny’s threat to Jody a secret for far too long, and it’s heartwarming to see Mindy’s true friends defending her when it matters most.
Danny’s Downward Spiral
Unfortunately, Danny hasn’t improved either. Greta Gerwig guest-starred as Sarah, his nurse and fiancée. That’s right, Daniel Castellano is engaged to another woman and hasn’t mentioned it to the mother of his son or any of her friends and coworkers, proving he’s still incredibly shady. I’ve had enough of Danny. My blood pressure spiked when he responded with a cold “no” to Jeremy’s plea for him to see reason and “allow” Mindy a chance at happiness too. I hope Mindy doesn’t get too upset when he finally tells her about his engagement and upcoming wedding, as that’s the last thing she needs. She’s been doing well moving on from him, and this revelation could set her back. Not that she has any viable options in her love life, but perhaps that’s for the best. She doesn’t need anyone. Mindy only pursues what and who she desires, and more often than not, they all turn out to be disappointments. Jody showed potential until his past caught up with him at the worst possible moment. I’m not sure Mindy should even give him a second chance, but we’ll have to wait and see what unfolds in the season finale!
