Looks like that love triangle will continue to take shape this fall on New Girl: Merritt Wever is returning to the Fox comedy for at least two episodes early in the season, EW has learned. The twice-Emmy nominated actress from Nurse Jackie will reprise her role in the season premiere as Elizabeth, Schmidt’s college girlfriend with whom he rekindled a romance late in season 2. In the wedding-day finale, Cece (Hannah Simone) revealed to Schmidt (Max Greenfield) that she was interested in getting back together with him, prompting Schmidt to literally run away from making a decision between the two women.

Season 3 of New Girl premieres Sept. 17.
