RECAP: GIRLS Just Wanna Self-Sabotage, The Season 2 Premiere

Related: GIRLS, HBO, Recap

Marnie, because of the whole Charlie/Audrey situation, and her still messy feelings towards Hannah following their blow-out at the end of season one, she corners her former best friend. She questions their closeness, and if they can ever get back to where they were after she decided to move out. It's nice to see a little honesty.
But Adam calls! And suddenly it's all about Hannah. Again. Like it ever wasn't.

So no, Elijah, Hannah can't deal with your much-older drunk boyfriend who keeps screaming how boring everyone at this party is. That's your headache, not Horvath's.

Once again, let's highlight the notion that Hannah hasn't changed. She goes to Adam's and he tries to win her back and she just won't have it because she's turned over a new leaf, because, duh, Sandy.

And so, Marnie and Elijah are left to duet to a Sarah McLachlan dud at the party. Good times. The bond they share over McLachlan (aka the background music on the sad pet commercials) and that time they made out in college, leads him to tell her that he may be bi. Which leads them to have sex for all of about an eye roll. But really, it was only that long because Elijah is impotent/gay.

And because Marnie always makes everyone want to roll their eyes, she heads to Charlie's. She "needs to sleep next to someone," her loneliness says. And his stupidity lets her in. Yeesh. So many bad decisions.

Anddd Jessa is still with Thomas-John (Chris O'Dowd,) the weirdy. Seems these two managed to make that runaway marriage last through their honeymoon to Mexico, at least. Which is surprising, since Jessa is typically the GIRL that would promptly put out a cigarette on any sort of commitment. "I don't even know where you live!" she exclaims at one point in the episode. Yes, you do. Remember? You and Marnie almost had that threesome Thomas-John that one time you spilled red wine all over his gaudy shag rug.

And so, we're left with Hannah, naked as always, attempting the art of seduction (and not self-destruction) with Sandy.

What did you guys think of the season premiere? Love it? Hate it? If so, then E!'s probably airing the watered-down reruns of SEX AND THE CITY.

GIRLS airs every Sunday night at 9 PM EST on HBO.
