One of the great things about the show ‘Girls’ is its ability to reflect a fair representation of just how complex and unfair life can really be.
Money isn’t something you automatically have and you can’t live a fancy, NYC-lifestyle if you’re just sitting around all day, despite what ‘Sex and the City’ and ‘Friends’ might have you believe. (I love both of those shows, but as a resident New Yorker I can promise you those apartments would be impossible to afford based on the very limited work we’ve seen these characters do.)
The point is, this show sometimes reveals life at its lowest, which, as you can imagine, isn’t always pretty and is part of what makes the series so controversial. You either love it or you hate it. And in keeping with that theme, the upcoming episode, titled “Free Snacks,” deals with yet another harsh reality for Hannah: giving up one's dreams and becoming a corporate sellout. But hey, on the plus side — free snacks are involved!
For those of you uninterested in spoilers, then this is where we part ways. As for the rest of you, check out the teasers below and get pumped for Sunday night’s episode.
-Hannah gets an advertorial job over at GQ Magazine, which she initially loves...that is, until she discovers what she may have to give up in the process.
-Marnie and Ray continue with their strange and surprising relationship. (Should we even call it a relationship? I'm still not even sure they have an actual friendship.) Anyway, yeah, this storyline is evidently becoming a significant thing.
-We discover that fictional GQ has a place called the "Snack Room." I can only hope that such a thing actually exists in real life. Let's all put this in our workplace suggestion box.
-Upon seeing Ray's growing success in the cafe business, Shoshanna decides maybe she does want a mature, steady boyfriend after all and goes about finding one in a very Shoshanna-type way.
-Jessa is officially employed at a children's clothing store and it's pretty much the best thing ever. Tim Gunn's got nothing on her.
‘Girls’ airs on Sundays at 10/9c on HBO.
