They’re definitely just friends right now. There’s a moment in the premiere where Nick really helps Jess out and it’s a great relationship because it’s so rich now. There’s so much history between them and they know each other so well. They live together, so that’s really complicated. We’re just having fun writing them not as much in the will-they-or-won’t-they zone, but more just all of the crazy complications of their relationship as it stands now where they’re best friends. Are they too involved in each other’s lives? Everybody else in the world is like, “That’s really weird that you’re living with your ex.” But the two of them are just having really a good time with it and enjoying it. I think the show, at its heart, is always about their love story. This is a moment when the love story’s not as much in the forefront but I know I’m definitely not like ruling out them getting back together at some point.
