Spoiler alert! If you haven’t watched the season finale of The Mindy Project, stop reading now.
The half-hour climaxed with Danny (Chris Messina) running to the Empire State Building to meet Mindy (Mindy Kaling) and profess his love. He found Mindy collapsed on the cigarette-littered observation deck floor, recovering from climbing the stairs because she had been told the elevator was out-of-order. It was the perfect not-perfect moment for the show… except I couldn’t stop worrying that Mindy’s purse was going to get stolen. “It’s right beside her arm,” you say. “She could grab it if someone approached.” That’s if she saw the person coming, but she’s at first exhausted and then completely distracted. Had there been a security guard standing above the woman, fine. But somehow, no one cared that Mindy sounded like she needed medical attention and she was unattended. She should have just wrapped her arm through the purse strap at her elbow. But then, of course, it would have been awkward when she and Danny got grabby. I get it. I’m only mad at myself for letting it take me out of the moment we’ve all been waiting for.
