HBO’s Girls :: Bad Friend
***For Those Of You Watching "Girls" Via DVR - Warning - This Article Contains Spoilers***
Friends. That’s what this episode of "Girls" is about and it takes a square look at two of Hannah’s (Lena Dunham) friends: Elijah and Marnie. You see, Hannah has applied for a job at a blog site called "Jazz/Hate" and is given the option to write about whatever personal experience she wants to. When it is suggested she do a bunch of cocaine and Hannah admits she’s never done it, she goes for that option. So she teams up with gay roommate Elijah (Andrew Rannells) for a Wednesday night out on cocaine -- the funniest part being the fact that they decide to start doing the coke at four in the afternoon, a sort of "old-timers druggie happy hour."
Meanwhile, Marnie (Allison Williams) is dealing with the groping hands of older gentleman at her new hosting job and runs into over-confident Booth (Jorma Taccone -- who I am ridiculously attracted to). He basically tells her to follow him out of work (she is easily seduced by him as if he has Svengali like powers) and they go back to his studio.
There she is put into a cage of sorts, surrounded by TVs that show gross images of decaying flesh and crying babies. This is Booth’s art. That and a Crime-Scene Dollhouse. When the two have sex, he makes her stare at an old doll as he lies on her back. So, needless to say, Booth is kind of weird and Marnie is in desperate need to find herself.She’s too easily distracted, unfocused and manipulated.
Meanwhile, Jessa (Jemima Kirke) is selling her clothes on the street and Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet) is busy complaining about new beau Ray watching reruns of "Ally McBeal" all night.
