Chances are you’re still not over last week’s Mindy Project breakup, and we can’t blame you. But the good news? Mindy (Mindy Kaling) and Danny (Chris Messina) might be done for now, but they’re not done forever.
“I think the dynamic between them is special and different and they are unlike any other couple on TV because they are such distinct characters and they fight so much,” says Ike Barinholtz, who plays lovable nurse Morgan on the show and co-wrote the big breakup episode. “To put them back together just makes so much sense…eventually.”
Below, Barinholtz talks more about writing the scene that ripped your soul apart, and we give you an exclusive look at the original script, annotated (hilariously) by Kaling, Barinholtz, and episode co-writer David Stassen.
