Girls: Season 5 Finale


Okay, I just finished “Love Stories” and “I Love You Baby,” and I’m just going to make some final comments on the girls here after another season.

Shoshanna‘s reunion with Ray with pure joy to watch!  What she did to Ray’s coffee shop was inspired– the anti-hipster establishment was decked out with the most hilarious signs– everything from Romney election memorabilia to “we don’t recycle.”  It’s nice to see her talents at work, and it’s nice for Shosh to get her groove back.

Marnie has been so unobtrusive this season, by comparison.  Yes, we all knew it was a mistake that she married Desi.  We definitely knew Charlie wasn’t going to work out.  Are we suspicious of things with Ray?  I’m not, but Marn is never without drama.  I’d like to see Desi even more out of the picture, but with Ray on tour with her, things seem to be looking up for Ms. Michaels.

Hannah‘s self-awareness was wonderful in these last two episodes.  Fran was actually a nightmare, and poor Hannah tried to do everything to make him leave.  He’s finally gone, though!  Her day with Tally was fun to watch, and Adam and Jessa deserved the ridiculous laughter they gave them.  In the last episode, she hears them in a shouting match about her.  The question: does Hannah actually want Adam back?  I don’t think she does.  Hannah’s Moth performance was pretty great, and maybe writing again will bring new opportunities to her.

Jessa almost had me in the last episode.  When she said she cares more about Hannah than Adam, she should’ve left.  She didn’t.  They destroyed the apartment and ended up together again.  They are officially the worst.  I don’t know how she plans to restore her friendship with Hannah.

We didn’t see the girls interact with each other much this season, really.  That’s just as much a part of this show, I think.

Thoughts on season 5?!


  1. Correct there was no interaction hardly among them this season. It was like I am doing my life and I really don’t need anybody’s advice right now. It was really about I am doing me me & me. How is Jessa and Adam going to move on?!?!? There love will have to be really strong between one another to move on and I am not sure it’s there?!?! Or is it?! They both have in common though dysfunction. Both come from very dysfunctional backgrounds… maybe they find this soothing to one another. What gets me most is that Jessa knew Hannah still had feelings for Adam. Yes Hannah didn’t want to get back together with Adam after he crushed her heart and moved on so quickly with Mimi Rose I don’t blame her for trying something else with new guy Fran. However, that doesn’t mean her feelings for Adam were not still there. Jessa you broke girl code BIG TIME on this one….thus the reason you all had this huge fight. The truth is on the table and can you both live with this?!?!? I am so happy that Marnie and Ray are together…may it last. And yes Desi just needs to go away. Sosh has found her niche!!! She is fabulous at this. Elijah it broke my heart, and Dill is not worthy of him. Glad Elijah stayed true to himself. I was so happy to see Hannah’s parents show up. There fabulous!!!! I didn’t like the episode with Tally. I might have to re watch this….I love the fact though that Hannah is free and stayed true to herself with the relationship with Fran and broke it off! I felt bad for Fran though….he loves her… It was hilarious to see Hannah just sit there and laugh at Jessa & Adam because it’s funny. There a joke. Hopefully Hannah see’s that for what it is finally as two dysfunctional people needing each other and for Hannah to realize she doesn’t need anyone!!! Just herself. Her smart fabulous self!
