That episode was so intense. The last scene where Hannah knows it's over, but the pain of it all is so visible in her face. I think nearly everyone has been there. It made me shiver and cry all at once. I think this is the most powerful and realistic episode of Girls I've ever seen. It was also nice to see Marnie speak some wisdom for once, she does have something of the old Marnie back from the first season. The carer, and the realist. I liked that. I felt so much pain for Adam and Hannah. I do think that even though it wasn't working and he realised he needed to move on, moving a new girl into the house Hannah left him within a month is a very low blow. Also I think Jessa was a toal F* Bi*** I would never forgive a best friend if they did that to me. That is not a real friend. I'd also like to say that even though she gave up her Writers programe in Iowa... things aren't always that Black and WHite... only when you are in that moment can you really understand that feeling. I moved to New York from Sydney at 25 wanting to be a fashion photographer. It was a dream. Even though I worked at NY fashion week, and started interning with a celebrity photographer, it was the hardest loneliest time of my life. Everybody back home thought I was living this dreamworld and couldn't believe it when, like Hannah, I ran away.... I had a lot of my reasons. But it's only when you are in that position you know those reasons. I don't think her choices with this can be so easily dismissed. She had this dream and she thought she had to follow it, else she knew there would always be a nagging sensation within her... but the reality of it was not the picture she had in her head. Sometimes this is life...
She got a bit choked and winded - that's why her voice was so hoarse. But no stabbing
I loved tonight's review!! You are so right about David... seriously he had a full day to do something.... he just unpacked and packed that bag like ten times. He is pretty hopeless at being an 'epic ninja' - even Victoria seems like a more worthwhile adversary in a fight - Emily runs circles around him in talent and abilities. It was nice to see Jack look so manly and proactive for once, instead of being all snivelling and self-pitying. (on a side note - where does he constantly ship Karl off to?) I know the B- story was a bit crowded for tonight's plot but I actually quite enjoyed it. The young actress is so beautiful - she looks like Jessica Rabbit! I also like seeing Nolan get involved in a few plots and schemes that aren't so Emily-centric. Honestly I think Margaux is kind of retarded. Look around. See how many people have died for this whole Revenge-thing. Daniel is gone, she can't bring him back, and she's about to have a baby! Why wouldn't you cut your losses, and focus on the fact you are having this amazing baby, instead of putting it into danger for some hair-brained scheme that won't even change anything!! Well I guess they need a reason to keep the plot alive. By the way, if they had killed Charlotte instead of Daniel would anyone even notice? I forgot she is still in the show!!

Even though I understood the premise of the first half of this episode... that weird isolation and loneliness you can feel in a new place, I found it hard to watch just because Hannah was so incredibly self absorbed and tactless that she really brought everything upon her. Who tells a total stranger you are a victim of abuse, or 'feel free to leave the room' if my reading aloud overwhelms you. She was just such a brat, it was the first time I could really understand why sometimes her parents almost ignore her when she does this self pity thing. Marnie reached all new levels of deluded - knitting a scarf for Dez so 'she could always be with him.' My god... Shosh and Jessa were fine in their brief cameo. The saving grace of the episode was definitely Elijah. He is awesome. He lights up the screen everytime. I think that he really provides some much needed humor and also the one person not afraid to give these self deluded girls a dose of reality when they need it. Really missed Adam though.
I love the comparison to Sterling Archer!! Archer is a more classic alpha male but the personality traits are definitely super similar!
I would have preferred:CharlotteJackMargaux - all could have died before Daniel. Killing off the Grayson family so swiftly is going t make this show boring
You forget to mention the best part of tonight's episode! A Conrad cameo!! Please bring Conrad back... I know anything is possible on this show. It's literally a night time B&B in terms of reviving the formerly believed dead. Conrad and Victoria's sniping arguments are by far the best part of Revenge... I've felt something missing without them this season! I am sad Daniel died. They really could have taken Charlotte instead. I didn't even realise she was missing this episode.
Not even a mention in your review of how cute it was when Jess finally got her pash on with the cute male teacher? I thought that was adorable... The side story was pretty stupid, but that one really saved the day for me!
I really loved this episode. It is good to see Jess and Nick finally find partners who you think actually suit them, although the money thing was a bit awkward. Also still find it awkward that they just didn't deal with that break up at all... as if it never happened... I remember on Friends, with Ross and Rachel it just kept coming into the conversation... having seen it in my own group of friends, it's realistic. It's like the writers just wanted a do-over on New Girl... I guess it's the way you have to roll to watch the show and enjoy it... like that never actually happened. I think Nadia should be a series regular. She is soooo funny. She makes me laugh so much. I would watch episodes dedicated to her. I think the girl fight was really on the money!!
