Mean Girl: How Megan Fox Crushes It On New Girl

Published: 22 April 2016

New Girl, season 5, channel eleven

Megan Fox maternity covering for Zooey Deschanel? Say it ain’t so, said the fans. How could the show possibly survive without its adorkable lead? Then in strode Reagan Lucas, the disconcertingly impassive, sardonic seller of pharmaceuticals, and as it transpired, stealer of scenes. The perfect remedy for our Jess-eparation anxiety, here’s what we love about New Girl’s new girl.

She is kind of scary. Scary beautiful, scary smart, scary intimidating. 

Reagan Lucas to see Dr. Richards.

I'm so sorry, Dr. Richards is...

He's right behind that water cooler. Why don't I see any orders for Recombinex from you this month, Don? What is this? Spectavir, Donny? Are you kidding me?

She is the antithesis of Jess.

I like the room. I think I just want to get rid of the pillows, the yarn, the tote bags and anything else that makes me feel racist against white people.

That's everything Jess owns, now, isn't it, Nick?

Gone. It's all gone.

She’s definitely not a people person, but she sure knows people.

And she knows Cece intimately.

She has no patience for sensitivity or emotion.

But she’s willing to accept that life is a complex process involving atoms and photons…

And that you have to make the most of the bizarre hands you’re often dealt.

You can either spend the rest of your life terrified that somebody's gonna swoop in and steal Cece away or you can just love her, and thank the universe that she loves you back for some reason.

She’s doesn’t sugar coat anything.

And finds human closeness perplexing.

You wouldn’t describe her as cuddly.

More of a stirrer.

And super sarcastic but always in control.

Given how many hearts her icy hand managed to slightly warm – it’s unlikely we’ve seen the last of Reagan Lucas.
