And the First Episode of The Mindy Project Season 3 is Called…

3 Jul

First up a disclaimer as episode titles do sometimes change between pre-production and their air date. With that in mind, I hope this one doesn’t get altered* as it is pretty emphatic in regards to a certain relationship status. Mindy Kaling has posted the script title page on Instagram and it is as follows:

Suggesting “We’re a Couple Now, Bitches” is referring to Mindy and Danny isn’t a wild guess and it looks like they are ready to take the next big step after their last stalled attempt.

I’m really excited to see how The Mindy Project tackles the “What next?” that rom-com movies tend to escape as the end credits hit at this point. Mindy in a long term relationship is not a new prospect as she’s had a couple of serious relationships on the show, however it is an entirely different setup to her previous beaus as Mindy and Danny have been the central “will they/won’t they” on The Mindy Project. This also means I’ll get to write a whole lot more about some of my favorite sitcom tropes/story arcs and Mindy Kaling has experience with writing a beloved couple going from friends to something more thanks to her time on The Office.

*I spoke too soon as this episode title has indeed been altered to “We’re a Couple Now, Haters” with Mindy Kaling explaining ” It was changed to “haters” because people could be offended by “bitches”. Thus is life.” Le sigh.
