RECAP: The GIRLS are 'Nothing Bundt Trouble'

Related: GIRLS, HBO

Dinner parties rarely go as planned. Dinner parties that involve meeting your in-laws aren't great, and neither are the ones that involve kissing your ex.

But after last week's semi-funny, semi-bad episode of GIRLS, tonight's, "It's a Shame About Ray," is much better. And a whole lot better than any dinner party. Dunham brings back the four Girls (mostly) as a unit for the fourth episode of the second season - which brings back the brutally honest, brutally self-absorbed tone that's all-but been missing since the end of the first season.

Elijah moves out after a heated back-and-forth; Hannah retains all of the stuff in this break-up redux. It's probably the last we'll see of him/Andrew Rannells. Which is fine for Hannah, because JazzHate is publishing her first piece, so with that $200, she calls Charlie and Audrey for dinner - and throws a Pad Thai pity invite Marnie's way, as well. Ray and Shoshanna show up, who have just come from engaging in cab-coital. And who now basically live together, because 33-year old Ray is bored and broke and considers himself a loser. But, come to find out, things are pretty serious for these two: they're pretty much in love.

The group spends the majority of their night discussing sex toys and methods and...stuff. Which leads to Audrey accusing Marnie of always being around, of being unable to get over Charlie, of Charlie pitying her because she might be a suicide risk.

"She's too self-involved to commit suicide," Hannah reassures.

And so Marnie walks out - where she meets Charlie on the rooftop. Where they also kiss. Oh, and remember last week's episode? The one where Booth-Jonathan locks Marnie in that video-art-box contraption and then makes her describe a Victorian doll while they have sex? That wasn't a one-time thing. They're together, now. I guess when life hands you tiny, rotten lemons?
