HBO GIRLS SEASON 6 EPISODE 2- BITCHES AND CUNTS

Did Lena read my post last week? Not only did we survive a whole episode without a single crotch shot.  (Thank you Lena). But we also got to see my favorite character Shosh! And she was with my other favorite character Elijah (I love Elijah…like LOVE) why did we have to wait six whole seasons for this masterpiece?!? I won’t complain though…  Let’s get into this episode review!

So we open up this episode with Hannah giving us (and Elijah) the rundown on the Marnie and Desi situation. They’ve been fucking for two weeks and Ray doesn’t even know it! Probably because he’s been living blissfully at Shosh house. (But we will table that for later).  Marnie wants to take her and Desi fuckship to the next level and hit the road! Hannah being the ride or die that is tag along to help her out.   Marnie and Desi arrive in a stylish old school car looking like a Where Waldo Cut Out for the first time ever, I feel bad for Hannah. On the way to the country house, they stop at a random shop own by an ex-supermodel. She’s gorgeous, insane and tells some crazy story about the guy from Law & Order. I’m still not sure why we went to the shop or the meaning of the tea set. But it happened.

 Fast forward, we pull up to a beautiful house and Hannah is going to her room to work. In my first post I complained about the lack of growth in Hannah. But this week, we see that Marnie also haven’t changed at all. She’s still unsure of what she really wants out of life. She only wants men when they are unavailable to her and she’s constantly looking for some approval on if she’s doing the right thing. Six seasons in you would think that at least one of these things would have change by now. But whatever, after discovering a jar of pills in an empty suitcase (because that’s totally normal), we discover that Desi has a 20 oxy a day drug habit. So there is a reason for Desi emotional outburst (he literally makes my skin crawl).  

After smashing the jar and crushing the pills. Desi totally loses his shit and forces the girls to kick him out of the house.

What’s the meaning of this cunt parade? (Favorite line!)

After having a breakdown Hannah tells Marnie in the most non-judgmental way that Marnie is seriously self-involved.  (This is the SECOND guy that had a drug habit and she had NO clue).  She continues in a very non-Hannah like matter and say that

She (Marnie) should actually look at things the way they are and not how she wants them to be.

  This moment showed me that although the girls have a lot more growing to do; one thing that has grown a great deal is there love and respect for each other. Marnie leaves the country house with a smile on her face, her best friend at her side and ready to take over the world. 

Back in city, Elijah is annoyed because someone how Shosh got his number and asked him to attend a women’s networking event. (That’s not weird at all). Nonetheless, due to an open bar, Elijah is willing to help a sister out. Meanwhile, Sosh and Jessa sits through a painful Facetime session with their Grandmother and Jessa invites herself to tag along.

“Tell me the address and if I should where shoulder pads or not”. (And she shows up with the shoulder pads on.)  

They make it to this event and you can see the stars in Shosh eyes. Her ex’s bestie has a hit business and are ready to take over the world. (Jamba Jeans for everyone!).  With Elijah beyond bored (he promptly leaves for a blowjob and coke) and Jessa completely out of place. It forces Shosh to deal with her ex- besties alone. 

The conversation seems to be going totally well. They catch up. Shosh tells them about her new job in marketing (not in a market, Elijah) and everything is going great until Shosh ask for them to exchange business cards. The girls quickly turns cold and brings up a Spring Break trip that she dipped on leaving them to spilt the room in two. The girls read her for her rights and explain that they just don’t have time for a person like her, in their life. (Ice cold).  Shosh is left pissed and frustrated, but instead of taking it out on the girls. She takes it out on Jessa, throwing food at her and telling her that she’s the reason for her life being so messed up. In the midst of an Adam bashing situation, Elijah casually drops that Marnie isn’t sleeping with Ray anymore, she’s fucking Desi. Even in her anger, Shosh couldn’t keep the look of shock out of her face. (I’m almost positive this news will make it back to her couch mate Ray.)

Back to the real issue, instead of actually listening to Shosh and seeing where she is coming from; Jessa thinks this is an attack on her.  She doesn’t understand why everyone is being so mean to her just because she’s with Adam. (We clearly have another self-involved person)  She walks away pissed that she can’t get a ride with them and that Shosh dropped her food. (A legit reason to be mad)

 Overall… How was this episode? I think it was about a 7.5/8. Desi breaking that window screaming BITCHES AND CUNTS, literally had me rolling around my bed in laughter.  What really made this episode was the valuable one-lines that was dropped throughout this episode. They were small but when applied to life it can really make things better! Here are our life takeaways this week:

1.        If you don’t believe in your own goodness nobody will

2.       Everybody has their own path

3.       None of us know anything.

Prediction: Shosh and Ray are totally getting back together!

See you next week! J
