Girls Recap: Marnie moves out, Shoshanna loses her v-card and that’s one plot twist we didn’t see coming in the season finale!
Girls Problem: Your Best Friend (You Thought Was) Forever is moving out under tense circumstances.
Friendships and roommates are funny things. The goodbye between Hannah and Marnie wasn’t so much tense, but resigned. Hannah, who rarely seems to let something go without a painfully awkward vivisection of its awfulness lets Marnie leave with barely a word of protest. Is it because Adam awaits upstairs? His remark that he might move in feels offhand compared to the new-age-y advice about toxic relationships and shedding skin he gives her a moment before. What kind of ambiguous situation is it when your boyfriend wants to move in, but move into the second bedroom?
Ten Years From Now: Hannah will have moving down to a science as non-friend roommates won’t put up with her inability to pay rent and the eating of their yogurt.
Girls Problem: You’re couch-surfing until you find a new apartment.
Last week’s fight between Hannah and Marnie didn’t feel like a friendship-ender to us (despite the wound calling). That Marnie is actually moving out is surprising, and speaks more to some quarter-life crisis she’s having than any irresolvable anger. Marnie wants to be away from Hannah’s constant need for validation and sympathy so she can wallow in her own self-pity and confusion about her life. Shoshanna, with all her frivolous self-help books and Sex and the City posters is like a sleep-away camp for twenty-somethings. For all of her insecurity and over-analyzing, Shoshanna is like a hamster on a wheel, upbeat about constantly running and seemingly getting nowhere.
Ten Years From Now: We haven’t had a lot of Marnie and Shoshanna one-on-one time except for the day in the abortion clinic waiting room. We could actually see these two being the kind of friends who don’t have deep conversations, but hang out when Marnie wants someone to gush over her and Shoshanna wants to be with someone who seems more mature.
