'The Mindy Project' Plans To Have Mindy Stay Single


At the end of "The Mindy Project's" first season, Mindy lived out a wild rom-com fantasy, declaring her love for Pastor Casey by cutting off her hair and moving to Haiti with him. However, tonight's episode seems to indicate that happily-ever-after isn't a Mindy destiny that the show embraces. "You know when you meet someone and you're obsessed with them for a week? And then they reveal themselves to be a psychopath and you're like, 'What the fuck was I thinking?' That's the kind of Mindy I love writing for," said Ike Barinholtz who pulls double duty writing for the show and playing sweet ex-con-turned-nurse Morgan Tookers. "Relationship Mindy is fun, but we got a big taste of that last year. I like Mindy single and on the prowl."
