'The Mindy Project': Ike Barinholtz teases 'finaltastic' season ender

Posted on

As season finale season kicks into high gear, EW reached out to your favorite shows for some unconventional teases. Check out another installment of our Season Finale Survey below:

Show name/My name, title: The Mindy Project, Ike Barinholtz, actor/writer

Russell Hornsby, Playmakers

Finale air date: 5/6/14

Finale Title: “Danny and Mindy”

Number of deaths: 48

One-word tease, presented in any language other than English: Grande

Song I jammed to before my biggest scene: I had Scandavian death rock in my head all that week.

Synopsis in 140 characters or less (yes, a Twitter tease): Mindy and Danny are at a crossroads. Do they end up together? More importantly, what happens with Morgan and Tamra, the REAL heart and soul of the show?

Script tease (a line of dialogue from the episode): “Just go ahead and have another slice of pizza. Have a whole pie why don’t you?” –Morgan to Danny

Location of the show’s most expensive scene: New York City (for real)

Overused finale descriptor that I honestly think applies to this episode: It’s finaltastic!

Watch it live! In fact, if you get our show to trend on Twitter during the finale on either coast, I will… (Choose one.)

A. Tease next season on Twitter after the West Coast airing.

B. Choose a Twitter follower at random to name a character after them next season.

C. Post a snippet of dialogue that ended up on the cutting-room floor. THIS ONE

D. Follow 25 fans on Twitter.

E. ______________________________________________

Serious question: How did the idea for this finale come about? We know it heavily nods to the rom-coms Mindy loves, but how does that theme tie into where we find her in the finale? Mindy took a trope of one of her favorite films and put her weirdo spin on it, making it ridiculous and funny.

Optional: Draw a scene from the finale (or of you REALLY don’t want to, send a picture):
