The Mindy Project

The romantic-comedy series on Hulu network-The Mindy Project made a powerful premiere by thrashing the love-triangle. Dr. Mindy Kuhel Lahiri (Mindy Kaling), who was faced with two choices of whether to choose Danny (Chris Messina) or Jody (Garret Dillahunt) makes a call that she wants to be herself for a while. She rejects being with either of the two men.

The Mindy Project Season 4 final episode ended on a cliffhanger. The finale has seen, Dr. Mindy gets stuck up in an elevator with Danny and they spent hours together. The cupid strikes them again and they both end up sleeping together. Mindy, completely unaware of Danny’s engagement with Sarah, starts dreaming of her future. But on the other hand, she is not aware of the surprise Jody has for her.

This rom-com series begins Season 5 right from where it left off in Season 4 finale. But this time to fans surprise the concealed truth of Danny’s engagement is blurted out when Mindy gets the invitation card. Although Danny is very cool about it, Mindy is serious. Danny tells her that he will call off his engagement with Sarah but Mindy has nothing more to say. The conflict over starting a family and not starting the one is clearly reflected between Danny and Mindy.

Meanwhile, as the episode progresses, there is a scene where Jody’s love for her is seen. Here it is revealed that Mindy was unaware about Jody bought her the apartment. But now she has to take a call. In this tense moment, Beverly Janoszewski, a former nurse turned receptionist at the office has a wise advice for Mindy. She says, “If neither one of these guys is right, wait for someone special to come along” reports TV Line.

Later in Episode 1, it is seen that Mindy runs to Jody’s in the pouring rain to meet him and tell her decision. She says, “I want to be by myself for a while.” Disappointed Jody says that they cannot be friends either. He is angry and frustrated about Mindy’s decision. By the end of the episode, Mindy is seen walking happily after opening up to Jody.

After Episode 1 premiere, fans are super-excited to know what happens next in The Mindy Project Episode 2. The series will celebrate its 100th episode this season.
