Elijah Krantz prepares for an open call audition for a new Broadway musical in Girls season 6 episode 7. For a refresher on what happened last week, read my recap of episode 6.
Girls season 6 episode 7 opens with Elijah talking to his co-worker Paget. They talk about how his ex-boyfriend Dill Harcourt is trending on Twitter after saying that he only wants to adopt a white baby.
Elijah almost walks out of his audition. He runs into a woman in the stairwell named Athena Dante. She convinces him to go back into the audition.
Marnie Michaels goes to a pawn shop with the most valuable thing she owns: a family heirloom locket. The salesperson tells her that it’s plated pewter, not platinum. Marnie complains about how everyone in her family is a liar. The pawn shop owner points out that she’s very quick to blame others. He tells her that no one comes into his pawn shop who hasn’t made some mistakes.
Paul-Louis calls Hannah Horvath back. She tells him about the baby and he asks what she needs. She says that she doesn’t need anything, so he says that he’s not ready to be a father. Even though Hannah thought she didn’t want him to make things complicated, she starts crying after the phone call.
Elijah spends the night with Dill. He wakes up to a call from the casting directors. They tell him that even though he’s a terrible dancer, they think he’s perfect and they want him to read for the producers.
At the end of the episode, Hannah goes to an appointment. She notices that the waiting room is full of pregnant women who have a man with them. She’s the only person there by herself.
This was yet another episode without Shoshanna Shapiro, which is bullshit.
