Girls: Homeward Bound


Last night’s episode felt so unfinished.  There was so much more I wanted to see here.  For the first time maybe all season, we witnessed progress on all four girls’ storylines.

Hannah and Fran finally broke up.  I was a little bit annoyed with Hannah for not being mature and literally running away from him.  She couldn’t just break up with him like a normal person.  Fran was pretty immature himself when he finally accepted it– although, I’m not entirely sure why Fran wanted to be in this relationship.  Anyway, Hannah makes SO MANY bad decisions in this episode– the blow job, the hitchhiking… I think things mostly worked out okay, but COME ON, Hannah.

Shoshanna returns from Japan and is not happy about it.  She runs into her ex-boyfriend, whose name I never bothered to learn.  She’s basically starting over from square one.

Marnie and Desi are not getting along.  Desi has a new girlfriend who dictates to Marnie how this musical relationship is going to go– Marnie only exists, as far as Desi is concerned, when they are making music.  Marnie is, understandably, furious.  Disaster approaching.

Finally, Jessa helps Adam take care of Caroline’s baby.  Jessa comes clean to Hannah that she and Adam are together, and tries to rationalize it to herself that she and Adam aren’t doing anything wrong.  I think they are, and I think she thinks they are.  Adam definitely thinks differently of Jessa by the end of the episode and says, “Why do you need more help than a baby?”  Things are getting rocky here.

The season is almost over, and it’s kind of been a weird one!  How are you all feeling about it?
