Girls season 6 episode 2 is titled “Hostage Situation.” According to the episode synopsis, “Hannah Horvath provides cover for Marnie Michaels‘ secret weekend in Poughkeepsie. Meanwhile, Shoshanna Shapiro enlists Elijah Krantz for a networking event. But, Jessa Johansson‘s antics lead Shoshanna to reevaluate her friendships.” For a refresher on what happened last week, read my recap of the premiere.
In the Girls season 6 episode 2 promo video, Hannah sees Marnie drive up with Desi Harperin. When she sees them, she says, “Oh, come on.” Later, Shoshanna tells Jessa, “Tonight I have plans. And it’s totally not your crowd.” Plus, Hannah asks Elijah, “You think I have time to go to Poughkeepsie to support her, like, sick little tryst?” And Elijah responds, “Because nothing says ‘let’s get this romance back on track’ like Poughkeepsie.”
At the networking event, Shoshanna tells Elijah, “Okay, I’m kind of freaking out.” Then, Jessa shows up. And, she asks Shoshanna and Elijah, “Where’s my name tag?” Watch the Girls season 6 episode 2 promo video below.
