Hulu released a new teaser Wednesday for The Mindy Project revealing that some interesting drama is in store for Mindy (Kaling) in the new season.

The promo uses stop-motion to tell an unexpected story about what happens when Mindy and ex-fiancé Danny Castellano (Chris Messina) get stuck in an elevator. Showing only the clothes that the characters are wearing, but not the actors themselves, the teaser continues to suggest Mindy and Danny become intimate while waiting to be rescued. The promo ends by cordially inviting audiences to watch season five of The Mindy Project on Hulu while revealing a twist in the rekindling of Mindy and Danny’s relationship: that Danny is engaged to be married to someone else.
