Adam Sackler makes a surprising decision in Girls season 6 episode 8. For a refresher on what happened last week, read my recap of episode 7.
Girls season 6 episode 8 opens with Adam telling Jessa Johansson that he plans to tell Hannah Horvath he wants to raise her baby with her. She tells him, “Do what you’ve gotta do. I’m not a zookeeper.”
Later, Hannah Horvath and Elijah Krantz sit in their apartment where the air conditioner isn’t working. They have two fans blasting and they’re both miserably hot.
My favorite person Shoshanna Shapiro accompanies Ray Ploshansky as he tries to convince a business help him digitize Hermie‘s tapes.
Afterwards, Ray explains that he doesn’t believe in inheritance. He wants to earn the money Hermie left him. Shoshanna suggests he stick with the coffee shop and relax.
They’re interrupted by her former boss Abigail. Ray starts to tell her about how he’s trying to get the tapes digitized, but Shoshanna tells him that Abigail doesn’t care and was just asking what they’re doing in the neighborhood to be nice. But, Abigail seems interested. She and Ray start talking about digitizing tapes. Abigail asks, “So now, who’s going to buy me lunch?”
Laird notices that Jessa is obviously tense. She says that she’s not doing great, knowing that Adam is with Hannah and wants to help her raise her baby.
Shoshanna, Ray and Abigail get drinks. Shoshanna is surprised that Ray is drinking during the day. Abigail asks them, “Would you rather live in a gorgeous building with a view of an ugly building or an ugly building with a view of a gorgeous building?” Ray tells her that’s the question he always asks people. They then both gang up on Shoshanna when she says that she’d take the gorgeous view. Ray and Abigail both laugh. I don’t care for it at all.
Jessa enters a mostly empty bar. She orders a seltzer, then puts her cigarette out in it. She smiles at the only other person in the bar and looks at him for a long moment before entering the bar bathroom. He follows her.
At the end of the episode, Ray and Abigail go to a carnival together and ride a merry-go-round. They kiss and smile at each other. They’re both adorable, but come on, man. There’s only two episodes left after this. What about the Shoshanna of it all?
