This week’s episode picks up precisely where we left off—a gathering in the unofficial center of household: the kitchen. Yet while last week’s closer was at the end of a night filled with unsuccessful attempts at snagging a partner for the late-night mattress dance, Tuesday’s opener begins with Schmidt’s latest conquest, a woman he met on a Tinder-like dating app called Dice. After digesting the fact that Schmidt’s successful string of lady-loves (or lusts) is a result of a few “dicey” swipes, Jess enlists Schmidt as her Dice instructor. The resulting process is a full day’s worth of incredibly cringe-worthy dates, scripted escape mechanisms and Jess’s rather somber realization that these dates are not going to bring her what she TRULY wants— love.
