'New Girl': Schmidt Heads to Confession With Jon Lovitz (Video)
In the wake of his recent philandering, Schmidt (Max Greenfield) sets out to redeem himself during Tuesday's New Girl.
And his first step is by getting back to his religious roots, seeking to find meaning in life with help from guest star Jon Lovitz -- who plays the rather skeptical Rabbi Feiglin. Episode writer Rob Rosell talks about the latest turn in the below video.
"He's not sure if he is a good person," says Rosell. "Schmidt is at a crossroads. He needs to start putting the pieces back together of his life with these people that he's hurt -- directly or indirectly."
"He'll figure out where the blame really lies," Greenfield recently told The Hollywood Reporter. "He's on a journey this season; he's really searching."
New Girl premieres "The Box" on Tuesday, Oct. 15, at 9 p.m. ET.
