Girls final episode “Latching”
This was very disappointing. Really, last week’s episode was the final episode, as it wrapped up all of the storylines that weren’t wrapped up in the episode before that.
In this episode, it’s five months later, and Hannah is living in the country in upstate New York, probably in or near the town of Red Hook. Marnie is living with her. It’s like they are an old married couple. Hannah is a real asshole to her. And she’s a real asshole to her mom who comes because Marnie calls her.
Hannah comes to her senses after encountering a high school girl who ran away from home, crying, because her mom asked her to do her homework.
The baby looks very brown, browner than I would expect for a half-Pakistani baby, especially considering that Hannah has very pale skin.
There’s a lot of misinformation about the benefits of breast feeding. This is a topic I’ve written about before. The only reason there’s a correlation between breast feeding and good outcomes is because formula is primarily used by a lower class of women; but it’s really a low-class mother that causes the bad outcomes and not the formula. Women in Hannah’s situation, where breast feeding is causing problems, should use formula without guilt.
And there’s a scene in which Marnie has video-phone sex.
