VIDEO: The Brad and Jane ‘Happy Endings’ Fight We’ve Been Waiting For

Have I made my love for Happy Endings apparent enough? If not, check out this preview clip for Wednesday’s episode, which features Brad and Jane devolving into an argument — an annual tradition called the “Spring Smackdown” that signals the imminent arrival of warm weather and flower blossoms (think Groundhog Day but with fewer rodents).
