"I'm excited for the finale because it's, like, after that sex scene where does it go from there?!"

Leave it to Mindy Kaling to ask exactly what all of us New Girl fans were thinking! While we were grilling stars Zooey Deschanel, Jake Johnson and Max Greenfield at Fox's upfront presentation for scoop on tonight's Taylor Swift-filled finale, The Mindy Project creator hopped right in to help us out—and to gush over the Fox sitcom.

"That's the best show ever," she raved after hugging the trio.

But not even Kaling's adorable fan moment with Deschanel, Johnson and Greenfield could throw us off as we wanted, nay needed, scoop on what's ahead for Nick and Jess! Plus, what finale shenanigans are in store for Schmidt (Greenfield)?

So does the season end with the pair officially together or are we in for a brutal cliffhanger that leads to three months of the dreaded unknown? "It's kind of both," Deschanel previews. "There's a choice that's made, but it's sort of a non-committal choice." Johnson adds, "You don't know what's going to happen." Gah, these two will be the death of us and we love it!

But Nick and Jess aren't the only roommates dealing with a romantic crisis as Schmidt finds himself torn between two lovely ladies: Cece (Hannah Simone) and Elizabeth (Merritt Wever).

"He's watching his ex-lover getting married and then he's in this wonderful relationship with Elizabeth," Greenfield teases, "and he may or may not have to make a choice."

New Girl's finale airs tonight at 9 p.m. on Fox.

To hear more from Deschanel and the guys, including what a crossover episode with The Mindy Project would look like, watch our interview with them above!
