'The Mindy Project' 'The Desert' recap: Right for each other?

See also

"The Mindy Project" continued Tuesday, Jan. 21, with "The Desert," and it was the final moments of the episode that left you speechless and so disappointed the show was going on break.

Yes, "The Mindy Project" won't be back until April 1, and they couldn't have left off in a crueler place (at least for a comedy). Mindy spent the entire episode trying to figure out a way to get back with Cliff, while Cliff spent it drowning his sorrows in crying and singing in his office and drinking with Morgan and Peter. He ultimately decided he was going to win Mindy back after he received the email Danny helped her write on the plane after tricking her into going with him to see his father:

"Dear Cliff, please forgive me. I'm sorry I was so stupid and reckless with your heart. You know you're right for someone when they force you to be the best version of yourself. That's how I know we're right for each other, Cliff."

However, after a little turbulence, Danny kissed Mindy, and it was right out of a scene from a movie like the ones Mindy loved. As she stood in the back of the plane looking for tonic water for him, Danny walked right over, took the bottle out of her hand, and kissed her. The episode ended with them still kissing (and a look back at some of their more memorable moments).

"The Mindy Project" returns April 1, and it's going to be a long wait now. What did you think of the Danny/Mindy kiss?
