    Okay it is IMMINENT! Final Season of Girls begins February 13nth!

    Apparently Matthew Rhys who plays the male lead in the Americans (my favourite ever not-sci fi show) will be in this season.

    I'm curious how it will end, will the characters be.. happy? Or go out on an all time greatest fucked upness?

    Will someone die? Some of them, aka Marnie, seem to be just waiting for a blade to fall. I don't think Hanna will die because Lena Dunham wouldn't want that. Kylo Ren might die though.. he has that sacrificial feel.

    I can't remember how it ended last season, might have to read a recap..

    OKAY! Just watched the first ep, it was full of high points. Extra nudity, extra obnoxious Jessa and Adam, extra nauseating Desi gross yuck vom.. blech.

    Ray's inner wussness seems to be almost killing him.

    Onto the next one!

    Jesus everyone is just so stunted, come on Shoshanna you can't make out like it was a sliding doors deal that you didn't go with those girls that one day and now they're successful and you're not. I like you but if it hadn't been Jessa manipulating and distracting you it would have been someone else :(

    Episode 3.. normally I'm not fond of these 2 person acts but this was extremely good. Hannah is so reduced by the end by having gotten sucked into the very thing she wrote about, at least emotionally for a time. It was rather fascinating.

    I predicted this would happen in the last season.

    It's also a thing where you have this person who is totally unable to find her place either in relationships, work, what kind of person she is.. and this event does all that for her BOOM, it's taken care of for the foreseeable future, she has a path. Of course that won't last but it feels otherwise to her now.

    I think it would be cool if the very last ep they did a Six Feet Under style finale where we see them all in 10 years time or whatever.

    Marnie would be married to a rich politcian dude and be channeling Jackie O while deeply unhappy.

    Shoshanna would have found her groove and gone a bit hippy, doing something arty and not thinking you need to be super successful with it to be fulfilled. She'd be chill and likable and you'd be happy for her.

    Jess and Adam, at least one would be dead.

    Ray would be the mayor of New York having gotten serious about community shit after his mentor is dead on the couch.

    And Hannah.. she would have 2 children both of which lived with their respective fathers and she would be blathering on about how she had to leave motherhood to really discover how to mother herself and also kegels and ..

    Hannah does not have the self-determination to succeed in Kegels.

    I watched four episodes last night.

    The Mathew Rhys episode is superb.

    Desi explained. So obvious. It's been mints, the whole time.

    Tracy Ulman. Love her.

    Patrick Wilson. Nice call back. Nude ping pong. Good times.

    Does Hannah, seem good at her job?

    Competent?

    Is she finally old enough that her massive ego is permissible?

    Rhys called her smart, and she touched his penis.

    That was dumb, Hannah.

    You specifically arrived there to announce that Fame is oldschool GHB, while believing you are perfect enough to be immune to his celebrity, but you were not, and touched his penis, becuase you are not special.

    "Sigh"

    I see Ray as an Alderman.

    Really low on the totem, in always a cheap suit.

    Poor Ray.

    Doesn't know what an orgasm sounds like. :(

    OH MY GOD! I loved this episode so much! It was pretty much the best.

    I developed a Ray crush, which I have never had, right in the middle of it and I think it will stick.

    Also right in the middle of it I was like.. why did I think Elijah was a waste of space, he is AWESOME, this is great chemistry.. and then there was the super dumb scene in the middle of the restaurant kitchen. Let me tell you, that would never happen, you would be MOVED ON OUT (the opposite of the Jefferson's movin' on up). It was kinda playing on the tropey "these people don't speak english so we can do anything in front of them" which was shit. Okay had to criticize something

    I loved finally seeing Hannah's mom, she's the potential end game of Hannah after all... I don't think we have those gummies in my country but they sound super dangerous. You're only supposed to eat one? But they take a lot longer than smoking to affect you? And they are in the form and flavour of a candy you ate bags and bags of without thinking as a kid? DANGER, omg I would have totally been puking in a restaurant just like Loreen if I had a bag of those things and felt like some mid life experimentation. I would be fucked.

    The "movie" is hilarious. Actually thought Adam was ejaculating in his pants at this reliving of his Hannah fetish.. but he seems to really be into Jessa? Why?

    He loves Jessa.

    That was the script.

    He is a good actor.

    Jess is an ass, and possibly illiterate.

    Also, Jess was Jealous of Hannah, not the actress playing Hannah.

    Too many drugs.

    She may have (subliminally) thought that they were the same person?

    Ray had to look good, because he broke free from Marnie Hell.

    Only morons go to Marnie Hell.

    And every one that leaves is smarter and more beautiful for the lack of that dead weight in her life.

    If you can make a tea out of Weed, you can make just about anything from that tea, including sweets.

    I figured that out without googling or a drug habit.

    Do Google first, or following my advice may destroy your dope.

    Ray had confidence.



    Confidence is sexy.

    OH man I was really hoping Desi would off himself but it seems he can't even do that.

    Desi is going to be in one of the Netflix Marvel TV shows.

    Let your mind stew about who he might be playing. ;)

    Can't find it on Youtube, but Desi had a reasonably gruesome death on The Last Ship.

    I've been busy and didn't get around to this until tonight, was super looking fwd to it, had my tea, my salty msg crackers and my jar of honey for dipping them in (this is very good, I recommend it) and even turned on a little heater. So luxe.

    Anyway what a crap episode and the show is almost over! It's pretty bizarre when the ELIJAH story is actually the best thing about it. The whole famous ex-lover of Elijah's crying in Hannah's lap was BARF. Just so barf. This never happens. It's fanfic.

    Nothing happened in this episode, no I don't care about Marnie finally deciding to grow up because she finally decided to grow up a bazillion times already. Ugh that whole wise old pawn shop guy scene, that was also fanfic! It was NYC fanfic. What does Dunham think she is, O. Henry?! Fuck it was awful.

    DON'T DO IT HANNAH

    DON'T FUCKING DO IT

    ADAM IS A LABILE LUNATIC

    jfc How do you know he's not going to get "inspired" and "know in his head" that he never should have left Jessa one day just 'cuz, she seems exciting again after a long gap.

    I did like the scene in the pawn shop. :)

    I don't understand why she would accept Adam?

    The movie could have been seen as a love letter?

    Although Hannah acted like it was an indictment last week.

    I thought Jessa was vomiting because she was also pregnant, but now it seems like she's got pregnant from a random barfly, although if Adam came crawling back by himself then Jessa's baby, if it exists is moot.

    I imagined a scene where Adam had to pick which baby to raise, in that way where they make a pet chose an owner, when the title holder is in doubt, by running to the one they love the most.

    Adam does not love jess, she is not more interesting because she had an affair.

    By "returning" to that relationship, Adam does not have to move house.

    It's just easier to go back to Jessa.

    Easier than sleeping rough.

    They are both so broken.

    Okay...

    Aidy Bryant.

    She's been on SNL long enough that I know her name without googling, Ray's new girl... She is either a dummy, sweetness and light, perfect to put up with his dullness, or a scheming Rat bastard keen for his inheritance.

    I don't know if I trust her.

    Oh true.. inheritance.. "properties" "businesses" .. Yes she should definitely put up with his dullness.

    Jessa was vomiting because she was so kicked in the gut over being left for a BABY.

    Hannah only went along with this because she was shit scared and suddenly Adam's bossiness seems like it is being taken care of, which it is not.

    I had to rewind twice, to figure out why, Adam and Hannah parted ways.

    A completely internal epiphany.

    Um...

    The pivotal intimate moment that Laird and Hannah shared?

    Is that when he dug out a stuck in hard, cotton wool bud out from in her ear?

    O.

    I keep thinking that Paul-Louis is going to turn out to be super rich, or be part of a super rich family, where after he takes Hannah to Abu Dhabi to live happily ever after.

    I was annoyed people kept pushing her to tell him. What if she doesn't want that guy in her life FOREVER. Which is what it would be, if he cared.

    Jessa looked very heroin-y this ep.

    Also no exaggeration I felt like I might throw up watching Adam and Hannah having sex this episode, my Adam repulsion is just made so much worse in that there's a visible baby bump that is pressed into the repulsive Adam. I was wincing.
