“Background Check”
Winston Bishop’s evolution from most pointless character on New Girl to one of the most essential characters on TV is completed in Season 4, and “Background Check” is the high point of this journey. Jess is worried that Winston’s police academy background check will be ruined by some meth she accidentally stumbled across, but really, she is worried because deep down, she just does not believe that he has what it takes. Ultimately, Winnie the Bish gets to show off how capable he really is while remaining adorably goofy, and in the meantime, the pressure-filled situation gets everyone else into some high-stakes, sweaty shenanigans.
