As New Girl‘s third season kicks off, all the loftmates are involved in passionate affairs: Jess (Zooey Deschanel) and Nick (Jake Johnson) with each other, Schmidt (Max Greenfield) with both Cece (Hannah Simone) and Elizabeth (Merritt Wever), and Winston (Lamorne Morris) with… a puzzle.

A new behind-the-scenes video shows the roommates picking up “exactly where the finale left off.” Roomfriends Nick and Jess have driven into the night — and off to Mexico, where their budding courtship is, predictably, not all wine and roses. As for making out and resort-crashing? New Girl‘s got you covered!

Meanwhile, Schmidt isn’t exactly happy about the roomfriends’ relationship, but he’s got bigger fish to fry since he still can’t make a decision between his two big-love exes. Rounding things out, Winston has gotten really into jigsaw puzzles — like, composing-an-impromptu-puzzling-theme-song into them. Nice to know the blood loss from that badger bite isn’t affecting his mental acuity.

Check out our exclusive video below to hear Winston’s original composition, see some steamy Jess-Nick kisses, and get the inside scoop from the cast members themselves.

New Girl returns this Tuesday at 9 p.m. ET.
