Hannah is one of those girls who is hard to be friends with. You know you're only seeing a sliver of the patheticness happening in her relationship. You know she doesn't really want your advice even though she asks for it. You just have to take a step back and let her figure it out.
Tonight's "Girls" begins with that modern marvel, the phallus photo. Hannah shows Marnie and Charlie Adam's sext through her broken iPhone screen (nice touch). After a chorus of "Oh my God"s, another text comes through. "SRY that wasn't for you." Logical friend Marnie responds, "What are you doing? Don't respond to that." Hannah doesn't understand why she wouldn't. "If there was another girl, he would never be this obvious about it." Marnie tells Hannah she is smarter than this and, many times again, not to respond. As soon as Hannah is alone with her phone, she sexts him right back. See? It is so much worse than you know, Marnie.
We also learn this week that in spite of her terrible interview skills that Hannah found a job. And her new boss is handsy. Her two female coworkers tell her she will "get used to" Rich's line-crossing massages. "I know it's gross, but he's really nice, and he got Tommy health insurance," Leslie tells her. They then proceed to give Hannah's patchy eyebrows a makeover, leaving her looking like "Seinfeld's" Uncle Leo with the Sharpie'd-on brows for the rest of the episode.
Back at the apartment, Marnie's boyfriend Charlie and their opium-enthusiast friend, Ray, work on a new song. Once they perfect their ballad to a Keds-wearer, they snoop around the girls' apartment and find Hannah's journal. It turns out to be the just the inspiration they needed. Later that night at their show in Bushwick, Charlie dedicates the song to his "g-friend" (cringe) and her friend Hannah. "Marnie has to stop whining and break up with him already. He'll find someone else, someone who appreciates his kind of smothering love," he quotes. Marnie throws her drink on Hannah and storms off. We look forward to some good, old-fashioned roommate silent treatment next week.
On the Jessa front, she solidifies her self-centeredness by losing the kids she is babysitting and continuing to flirt with their dad.
And on the Shoshanna front, she runs into a guy she knew from camp and almost rids herself of that pesky virginity until he find out she is a v-card-holder and tells her,"Virgins just really aren't my thing."
