The two episode season premiere opened with Hannah and Adam being happy, Jessa in rehab, Marnie being a mess after a breakup and living with her mother, and Shoshanna in the middle of her sexual awakening.
Hannah and Adam finally stopped the bullshit and are together. After her near mental breakdown he was there and helped her get through it. Things are rainbows and sunshine until the normal girl who was extremely attracted to Adam, and slept with him during the break between Adam and Hannah, completely laid him out in the middle of the coffee shop during the first five minutes. It was one of the funniest and most awkward altercations ever put on TV.
Hannah realizes that she is in a better place since she realized, "My only limitation is my own mind. Like, I hold the keys to the prison that is my mind.” No truer words have ever been spoken. She talks to her editor and her ebook is back on track.
The idea of free spirited Jessa in rehab is hysterical. Whats even more hysterical is that everyone in rehab hates her. In her classy british whit she calls out everyone for their bullshit, which in turn makes her the biggest bitch in the group sessions. She called out a girl for being a lesbian, and made fun of the drug addict girl who wears scrunchies. She also called herself out for her own problems. During group she said, "I figured my shit out already when I was 5 years old. Heroin is really fun, but it can also kill you.” Oh and lets not forget, Jessa gave the lesbian an experience she will never forget.
Marnie and Charlie have broken up, and she is living on her mothers couch sleeping on Rainbow Bright sheets. According to Marnie she has it all figured out about what to do next but her mother, as all mothers do, tells her she doesn't. Marnie moves out and into her own apartment, and spoiler alert, it will be another season of a depressed self involved Marnie.
Then there is Shoshanna. When we last left her she broke up with Ray because he was nothing but a thirty something guy who only loves Shoshanna. Now she is living her last year of college as basically a slut. She is going out and having experiences to make her a whole person. We all know how this is going to end, but I am really feeling a slutty Shoshanna this season.
Throughout a whole hour of GIRLS we saw Marnie being a whiny mess as per usual, Adam and Hannah working out the kinks in their relationship, Adam actually acting like a real human being, Jessa calling Hannah to bail her out of rehab, and Shoshanna just being Shoshanna and making comments like, "I will never be bored as long as there is Halloween." Adam, Hannah and Shosh also go on a road trip to spring Jessa out of rehab which leads to the funniest lines in the entire second episode.
Both of these episodes are available in full on YouTube if you want to relive the laughs that the season premiere provided. Leave it to Lena Dunham to write lines like this. You will laugh because its absolutely true.
Adam: "I just think women get stuck in this vortex of guilt and jealousy with each other that keeps them for seeing situations clearly."
Hannah: "Ok, now you sound like one of those guys who thinks a woman should never be President because her menstruation will cloud her judgment."
