It's About Time

TV-MA | 29 MIN

Written by Lena Dunham & Jenni Konner
Directed by Lena Dunham

Hannah's getting along great with her new boyfriend, Sandy, until he tells her he "loves how weird she is," and Hannah balks. She doesn't want him to say "love." She wants to do this relationship differently and make smarter choices, like to not show up at his apartment in the middle of the night.

Marnie has lunch with her boss, Reese, from the art gallery. Reese forgets the entire purpose of the occasion until the end: she is "downsizing" Marnie.

Feeling guilty over Adam's accident, Hannah continues to care for him while he is convalescing. When she tries to draw a boundary, Adam insists they should still be together because Hannah is his "main hang."

New roomies Elijah and Hannah throw a party at their newly re-decorated apartment, which creates a few awkward reunions. Shoshanna spends the night trying to avoid Ray. Marnie worries that she and Hannah have grown apart because they no longer live together, and she needs extra support now that she's lost both her boyfriend and her job. Meanwhile, she struggles to remain nonchalant around Charlie and his new girlfriend Audrey.

George, Elijah's much older boyfriend, gets drunk and causes a scene. Hannah locks him out of the party but is trapped in the vestibule as George taunts her through the door. When he finally gives up, Hannah heads to Adam's to drop off some supplies and take more abuse. When Adam tells her, "You're the best thing in my life. I'll die if you go away," she explodes and storms out, telling him she never wants to see him again.

Ray confronts Shoshanna about unfriending him on Facebook. They argue, but as she tries to leave, Ray sweeps her into his arms for a kiss.

Elijah and Marnie perform a drunken duet in the now-empty apartment. Elijah reveals he's still sometimes attracted to women, including Marnie. They start to have sex, but Elijah loses his erection - he accuses Marnie of rolling her eyes at him. Afterwards, she heads to Charlie's looking for comfort: "I'm not here to cause any trouble. I know you have a girlfriend. But I just need to sleep next to someone tonight."

Thomas-John and Jessa return to New York from their honeymoon, giddy and in love. Jessa tries to give the cab driver directions but realizes she doesn't even know where they live.

Hannah shows up at Sandy's - in violation of her rule about not showing up in the middle of the night - on the premise of borrowing The Fountainhead. While he looks for it, she takes off her clothes and waits for him in bed.
