    This week's episode was much more focused than the last episode was without the "I'm supposed to feel sorry for Jessa" thing. This episode really brought what levels Girls really works on into play, which is making its characters go into stunningly difficult and humiliating situations (ex. Hannah's duet with Marnie), and having lasting relationships affect its core cast and make the audience feel sympathy (ex. Ray getting really sloshed and punched by Hannah's editor David). Poor Ray, with how much success he has now running his own Grumpy's he's still so hung up on Shosh that he can't even try to dance with someone (even if that someone is the mentally unhinged sister of Adam, Caroline). Seeing him go overboard and try to be a big person by making small talk with Shosh was painful to watch. My heart goes out to him making a jackass of himself because I've been there myself and am in no way saying that he should chew out a DJ (although a song should be played to its completion regardless) and trying to start a fight with someone over something as small as that. Not sure what to make of Marnie's "music video" as I'd call it and her quest to get it taken down, although the bit about the comments was pretty great and honest about how people on the internet would react to such a thing. One thing I admire about Girls is that it's a show that can only exist in the present with mentionings of jealousy because Charlie checks Marnie's Instagram. This show is so wired into the present that I feel as if these are some of my own friends talking about their relationships (I'm in the same age bracket as the characters on the show roughly). I'm wondering if we'll see more of David's character and I'm not quite sure what to make of him. What started as a mentor role for Hannah's authoring her ebook last season largely flipped into a comedic supporting role as he comes in scorned by being flaked out on by a date and downloading the casual sex app Grinder onto Hannah's phone. As good as it was to see Hannah's parents their appearance was largely a waste in the sparse 30 minute episode as they were introduced to Caroline and said hey and then were shown dancing, they didn't really contribute anything thematically to the episode which is a shame because their characters excellent foils at seeing through Hannah's excuses. Adam was much more grounded this week and I gotta say the "freaky sister comes to visit thing" was a bit overdone especially when she's naked smashing glass into her hand because Adam wants her to not stay with him. Call me old fashioned but if my abused sister came to visit, even if she euthanized (attempted to) my grandmother it'd be hard for me to turn her away when she has nowhere else to go and I have a spare bedroom and a couch. But maybe Adam's right, he has been so far and now Caroline has sort of manipulated her way into the guest role. I seriously hope that this doesn't last all season as the "mentally unstable sibling coming to visit" feels much too close to Hannah's excellently written OCD breakdown last year and simply seeing someone else go off the deep end like that (even if it's not Hannah) seems to come off as merely last season's recycling but with a new face on the show. But overall this episode was entertaining and saw the drama become a lot more pronounced for Ray, Hannah, and Adam. Too bad Ray had to meet Shosh's new "boyfriend" that way because he did seem like a really nice guy. They probably could be friends. Anyway, till next week.moreless
