Girls S06E06 “Full Disclosure”
Several commenters demanded that I write about Sunday’s episode of Girls.
This is primarily an Elijah episode. Hannah and Marnie also appear. Not appearing in this episode at all: Adam, Jessa, Ray, Shoshanna. Shoshanna hasn’t had any role in this season since the WEMUN mixer. Did Lena Dunham grow bored with the character?
Given that Elijah is more likable than any of the female leads, even though he’s gay, it was mostly an enjoyable episode, and I even liked the sassy thick black girl whom Elijah befriends at the White Men Can’t Jump audition.
Dill, Elijah’s ex-boyfriend and TV-news-personality, returns for an appearance. A poorly written appearance. Dill as an emotional wreck is just dumb and not believable and we’ve already had enough of this with Marnie’s ex-husband Desi. And I choose to ignore the whole Dill wanted to buy a “white baby” scandal. Luckily, Elijah told Dill to get lost, so presumably that’s the last we will see of him.
Hannah talks, by phone, with Paul Luis, the surfing instructor who’s the father of her child. Paul Luis wants nothing to do with a baby. Hannah cries afterwards. What the hell did she expect? Of course you have to wonder about the bad advice of other characters on the show urging Hannah to call him.
Allison Williams who plays Marnie looks very anorexic. It’s not pleasant.
