By April Lara | 4 years ago

In “The Mindy Project” Season 2 Episode 21, “The Girl Next Door,” someone has a new apartment while someone is courting a brain surgeon. Read on for MNG’s “The Mindy Project” recap of the said episode.

Mindy, after meeting a handsome policeman named Charlie in “The Mindy Project” Season 2 Episode 20 “An Officer and a Gynecologist,” which aired on April 22, 2014, realised that she’s become too dependent on men. She wouldn’t allow this to continue so she decided to become more self-sufficient by buying her own apartment instead of renting one.

Of course,Danny comes to the rescue, and he offered to help Mindy find the best apartment for her, which is actually doing Mindy a huge favour because Mindy almost purchased a terrible apartment if Danny didn’t save her from it! So, Danny had an apartment in mind. And this one’s really good, the only problem is that it is in his building, next door to his apartment and he owns it. Oops!

Mindy’s concerned that if she purchased Danny’s apartment, which again is just next door to Danny’s, things will be so weird. But, Danny insists that there is nothing weird about that because they’re friends, anyway. In fact, things went great between them. They had sweet moments together. But, Mindy failed to notice that Danny was actually already making assumptions about their time together.

Now, Mindy is fine with the whole living-next-door-to-Danny, but Peter wasn’t. He told Mindy that the reason why Danny wants her living next door is to be able to keep tabs on her. Mindy tries to convince Peter that that’s not it’s all about and none of them will get mad if someone brought home a date. In order to prove this, she decided to test Danny by simply inviting Charlie over for dinner.

Oh and since we are on the topic of dating, Peter went out with Jeremy’s friend, a brain surgeon, and finally he got a taste of a real adult relationship. The brain surgeon is a single mom and really out of Peter’s league. They had fun on their date but the surgeon told Jeremy that she doesn’t want to see Peter anymore because he’s immature. However, since Peter had his taste of a real adult relationship, he asked her for another chance.

Going back to Danny and Mindy, Danny saw Charlie’s shoes outside of Mindy’s apartment and he got jealous. So, he thought of ways to interrupt them in the hallway. Luckily for Danny, Mindy’s attempt to show Charlie that she’s self-sufficient backfired when the dinner caught fire and the alarm went off. After that whole thing, Danny and Charlie met and started talking about their life experiences. Danny wants to invite them over to his apartment to try his new microbrew but he doesn’t want to break up their date. But, Mindy insisted that it wasn’t a date. Hearing this, Charlie tried to remove himself from the picture.

The next night, Mindy wanted to try things again with Charlie while Danny wants to get Mindy to come to his apartment. One good excuse that he thought of is to borrow some detergent from Mindy and when Mindy said she’s going on a date, Danny tries to kiss her again. However, Mindy turned him down and told him that he just can’t feel like it only when there’s another guy involved. So Danny is left with a decision to make: if he really wants Mindy or not and if not, then he needs to let her go.

And that’s it for MNG’s “The Mindy Project” recap of “The Mindy Project” Season 2 Episode 21, “The Girl Next Door.” It was aired on April 29, 2014.
