Falling In Love With "Girls" - Finale
Episode 10: Season Finale
And it all comes down to "THIS."
So, as a result of Marnie not wanting to deal with Hannah’s endless self-made drama, Marnie moves out. She hands Hannah the keys to the apartment with a "we’ll see each other." When Hannah wants to know when, she replies with a "don’t push it." In the meantime, she moves in with Shoshanna because Jessa is nowhere to be found. Why you might ask? Well, in a matter of hours she has texted all her friends to show up at a surprise-surprise party. "Dress nice."
So off the girls go to a party they are clueless about. Until out walks Thomas John (Chris O’Dowd’s businessman) and then... Jessa. Dressed in hippie-chic wedding attire.
What the what????
Apparently, we learn (during their wedding vows), Thomas John was so smitten with Jessa’s hatred of him on their derailed three-way evening, that he pursued her until she gave in and went to dinner with him. There, she states, she fell in love with his mind.
I’m not so sure I’m buying this, especially when they are dancing at the wedding and she keeps pushing him away. Later on, though, she seems smitten herself, so I’m unclear whether it’s all on the up and up or not. But like Episode 9, this development seemed to come out of nowhere and actually, would have been a nice story arc for her, an arc we completely miss.
At the party, other drama transpires: Shoshanna - feeling alone and angry at everyone and everything - goes home with Ray where they appear to have sex. (It gets stopped then started again.) That poor girl. Her naïve decision making is soooo questionable and silly. Yet, no one can give her direction because they are all so self-involved they can’t see beyond their own bubble.
