I don’t think we’re in Brooklyn anymore.
Hannah’s moved to Iowa to begin her new, writerly chapter and it is going to be a wild, messy, blue-paint (?!) filled ride.
This is one of those GIRLS episodes with very minimal screentime for Jessa, Shosh, and Marni, but a whole lot of Hannah, and one New York looking Elijah, come to Iowa for no discernible reason but shits and giggles.
This leads to one of Hannah’s most unfortunate moments. Hannah is running late to class and ends up throwing this could have been cute varsity sweater (a nod to academia) over her PJ’s. Is this some sort of reference to the nonchalant, poor fashion choices of an undergrad? Does she really think this is an OK look for the prestigious Iowa Writer’s Workshop?
It’s way too soon to worry abut Hannah learning proper garment care (somehow her wrestling opponent managed to wear a bathing suit), so let’s just focus on the small stuff…
-No more pajamas to class
-Maybe Elijah can help Hannah curate a writerly-chic look? Or Marni even, with her desire to be sartorially on-theme? Someone help this girl.
Pretty excited to track the development of GIRLS’ delightful cast of characters throughout season 4–see you next week!
