Girls HBO Series Finale Lena Dunham Hannah

Girls' Final Three Episodes: Is Hannah Saying 'Goodbye' to New York?

As the series finale of HBO’s Girls quickly approaches, we’re still left with about a million unanswered questions. (The most pressing one being, of course: What will a pregnant Hannah decide to do about her baby?) But the loglines HBO just released for the final three episodes do shed a little (dim) light on what we might expect — including a possible move for Hannah.

The April 2 episode, “What Will We Do This Time About Adam?” will see Adam give Hannah some “surprising news.” (Are he and Jessa getting married? Or maybe the film he’s doing inspires him to beg Hannah for another chance?) Plus, Shoshanna runs into her old boss Abigail (SNL‘s Aidy Bryant), who infuses her oral-history project with Ray “with new energy.” Could this be a new career path for Shosh? (And a possible rekindling for her and Ray — who really do belong together?)

The penultimate installment, airing April 9, is titled “Goodbye Tour,” in which Hannah has “an important meeting” and “reaches out to friends for advice.” Maybe she’s considering an abortion — we already know how Elijah feels about that — but the title also suggests she might be leaving New York City. Does she get a big new job offer that would take her and her baby out of the five boroughs? Or does she track down baby daddy/surf instructor Paul-Louis (Riz Ahmed) and decide to raise the kid with him?

The April 16 series finale is entitled “Latching,” which is a breast-feeding term, so that implies a baby in her future. But of course, that could just be misdirection. The episode description is predictably scant — “Hannah embarks on a new chapter” — but it feels like, even if she doesn’t keep the baby, Hannah’s ready to move on… and maybe move out, too?

    this show is trash. thank god it’s ending

    This show has moments of great potential but ultimately the characters are just caricaturish and underdeveloped. They’re so vapid, it’s painful to watch. How is it possible that Marnie realized she was completely in love with Ray at the end of last season and 4 episodes in she’s already cheated on him, shown no interest in spending time with him and forced him into ending the relationship because she’s so selfish?!

    • JJ LIONS says:

      Marnie is a full-blown narcissist and has severe daddy issues. She lives in a fantasy that a man in her life is going to solve all of her problems. When she does get a man, she realizes that she wants more or something else. She lacks empathy, which is why she is so horrible to Ray. Unfortunately, this is a pretty accurate portrayal of many female millennials that I know.

    If a show that no one watches and only exists so this rich, well-connected girl could be naked to validate herself while painting a New Your where everyone is White and everyone that is not her is stunning could get validation is not the prime example of White Privilege, nothing is.
