Girls Recap: Sexting scandals, diary secrets, and V-card troubles! We discuss the problems of episode 4
Girls Problem: Adam sexts Hannah thinking she’s someone else.
We can’t believe Marnie doesn’t understand that Hannah is really quite pleased Adam is sending her pictures of his junk. Let’s be real: Adam could pocket dial Hannah and still make her feel special. At least this misdirected text is the last shame straw for Hannah, leading her to stand up for herself and deliver a sermon about what she wants from Adam. She’s doing so well until her lip quivers, and then we know all he has to do is say one nice thing and she’ll cave. Even sadder: he really doesn’t have to say anything! All he does is look at her and she jumps him. (Side note: this was an awesome use of sexting in a storyline. It wasn’t a morality tale and it wasn’t a silly sexting-gone-wrong story of a nude shot getting sent to parents by accident. And if Jessa calls texts “word alerts” what does she call sexting? “Nude notifications”?)
Ten Years From Now: Duh, there will be no more texting or sexting. Ten years from now technology will have changed so much. But we’re sure boys will figure out a new way to send girls pictures of their d***s — maybe Kanye West will redo “Runaway” and change the lyrics to reflect just how the kids are doing it.
Girls Problem: Hannah has patchy eyebrows.
Who didn’t get curious and pluck out all their eyebrows in junior high? (Hello, Mad Love–era Drew Barrymore!) It’s understandable that Hannah would seek the advice of her more worldly-seeming coworkers—one of whom was played by Girls staff writer Lesley Arfin—but they were definitely wrong about the eyebrows. However, at least she listens to them about Adam and goes off to get back her self-respect. (We only wish she’d washed her face first.)
Ten Years From Now: Hannah will hopefully have found an eyebrow routine that works for her—we would bet Shoshanna knows a good waxer like any Sex and the City girl.
