'Girls' Ends With the Best Kind of Real-Life Drama -- Motherhood

'Girls' Ends With the Best Kind of Real-Life Drama -- Motherhood

Sound familiar? Hannah parents the young woman as if she were her own child and tells her no one will ever love her as unconditionally as her own mother.

The enduring image - a amusing one - was the sight of Hannah outside her house, outfitted with a pair of breast pumps that looked like a couple of flugelhorns sticking out of her chest.

As it had been confirmed before, Jessa and Shoshanna didn't appear in the final episode. Marnie vapes on the front stoop and tries to find moments for herself by Facetiming personal trainers for masturbation material. She says, as the girl runs away, that "life is going to chase you with problems you can't imagine". The doctor tells her that sometimes there's something with breastfeeding that's just off. Not that it is not an important storyline, and not that it isn't a critical full-circle moment, watching Hannah, an often selfish, erratic 20-something, have to enter a new stage in her life. Hannah and her volatile and magnetic ex (Adam Driver) realized once and for all that they weren't good for each other anymore. "We did it a little bit of a different way".

Girls became dichotomous in that sense, and despite having an incredible last season, it led itself down a path where its final episode, "Latching", was going to fail on some level no matter how Dunham, Apatow and Jenni Konner made a decision to close its book.

Loreen then scolded Hannah for saying it. Please, Marnie doesn't deserve a medal, but she does warrant some credit. It's a line that her mother could have, and possibly has, said to her.

Redemption: Shosh was also always the smartest member of the group (no matter how intellectual Hannah fancied herself), and after losing her way after losing her job in Japan, she found direction, a hot new fiance, and the courage to acknowledge that not only had the group of girls grown apart, that they may not have been true friends in the first place. That's a decent, bittersweet idea, but it was too abrupt a break for me, most specifically because Marnie and Hannah barely even interacted and, though the show has shifted its character dynamics drastically over the course of its run, I always felt Marnie and Hannah were the foundation relationship of the series.

Panic and chaos at New York Penn Station following NJ Transit delays
In a tweet Friday night, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio reiterated that "no shots were fired at Penn Station" that evening. Two people were taken into custody for ignoring the officers' orders and one of them was tased.

What did you think of the Girls finale?

In spite of being a mom, Hannah managed to make everything all about her. Hannah then took her anger out on Marnie after Marnie said Hannah wasn't being mature. I knew I had a whole lot to learn, but convinced myself I alreadyknew better than Girls' rotating door of self-absorbed jerks. But in apologizing to Hannah, Jessa was also able to both acknowledge the importance of her betrayal and the regret she had because of it. Season 1 Jessa didn't have regrets about anything.

Back on the ground, I was intrigued, writing that Dunham had made "an honest and at least occasionally hilarious show that might even live up to its hype". So I think she's going to be great.

Aunt Marnie wants to know if breastfeeding came up during the appointment (Grover's on a nursing strike) and disdains the babies in the waiting room, who look "formula fed"; still on the subject, she calls breast milk "liquid gold" on the drive home.

During her walkabout, Hannah comes across a shoeless, pantsless girl running away from "an emergency incident". But Loreen, who knows what it's like to give your all to somebody who has another agenda, tells her prioritizing her own happiness could be the best thing for her and Hannah's friendship. She's in a big zip-up sweatshirt and ill-fitting loose jeans and sneakers. "They just wanted it to be traditional, and they just felt like that was enough". (Though there is an excellent meta-gag about Williams refusing to show her nipples on the show.) It's impossible to believe they're fooling each other. Sure, she did plenty of other crappy things that season, especially to her boyfriend Fran (Jake Lacy), but it marked the beginning of Hannah's true transition to adulthood.

The show's executive producer, Jenni Konner, also spoke to the magazine about that "last look" Hannah gives the camera while feeding her baby right before the end. This all began with her, as well, sitting across Hannah at a dinner in some NY restaurant and informing her that the purse strings were about to be finally severed. The episode is unusual because Hannah's world has become something she doesn't recognize, but life works like that sometimes.
