Elaine | "Elaine's Big Day" (Season 2, Episode 25) | 2013
New Girl is a famous American TV show that aired for seven seasons, starting in the year 2011 and ending in 2018. Actors Zooey Deschanel, Jake Johnson, Max Greenfield, Lamorne Morris, and a few others starred in the show as its key characters. Amongst various guest appearances made on the show by celebrities was that of Taylor. She had a small role on the finale episode of the second season of New Girl.
Cece’s wedding day finds Jess and Nick making a decision about their relationship. Meanwhile, Schmidt schemes with a typically overenthusiastic Winston to sabotage the nuptials, although a shocking announcement may be bigger than anything he plans. With the arrival of Cece and Shivrang’s wedding day and ceremony, came Elaine, who was essayed by Taylor herself.
SPEAK NOW (OR FOREVER HOLD YOUR PEACE)
Elaine is portrayed by Taylor. She is the long time love of Shivrang and is a guest at his wedding to Cece. It is unknown if Elaine ever dated Shivrang, but it is clear they could not be together due to their different heritages. Elaine made a list of confessions to Shivrang during her short scene; that she loved him since the first grade, that she writes about him in her journal, and paints pictures of him on her easel. Shivrang also confesses to her that he wants their children to be photographers and marry in a Presbyterian church. They both run off together to elope in Las Vegas. While the comical scene showed Shivrang instantly leave the scene with Elaine in his arms, Cece was seen eventually confessing her feelings for Schmidt.
All in all, the scene more or less acts out the story Taylor had written about in her 2010 song “Speak Now“.
