Jet lag has got me so hard, guys. I had the best of intentions of getting this up Monday… but I’m still adjusting! Japan content coming soon, until then, let’s talk about Girls before the last episode ever this weekend.
Hannah’s life seems to be falling into place as she gets a great job offer upstate to be a college course instructor. It has benefits, and with her baby on the way, Hannah knows this is a great move for her. Plus, she seems pretty keen to get out of New York city… but she wavers on this and embarks on a goodbye tour, asking people for advice. Elijah’s opposed, her dad is on board, but where are her friends?
Marnie isn’t picking up, so Hannah tries Shosh who apparently has a different number than last they spoke. Hannah instead goes to Shosh’s apartment to find that she is hosting her own engagement party.
I’ve been pretty upset about the lack of Shoshanna all season, but if we’re taking the season mostly from Hannah’s perspective, this makes sense. It’s clear that time has gone by a bit faster in these last couple of episodes, and maybe all through the season, unseen to us, Shoshanna has been meeting and falling in love with Byron Long. Now they’re engaged, to the total shock of Hannah who wasn’t invited to the party. Marnie’s there, and of course Jessa, so Marnie calls the four girls into a group meeting in the bathroom.
Hannah, Jessa, Marnie, and Shoshanna are together for the first time all season, speaking their minds to each other. Shoshanna has moved on from this and points out that they can’t be together without one of them making it all about her. Shosh has her own life now; they all should.
Jessa & Hannah have a nice moment where they both apologize to each other. Jessa gives Hannah a baby dress, and Hannah tells her the baby is actually a boy.
The four of them manage to have a great time at Shosh’s engagement party sort of doing their own thing. Hannah moves upstate and is happy with her decision.
What do you think this last episode has in store for us?!
