Hannah Horvath reaches out to her friends for advice in Girls season 6 episode 9. For a refresher on what happened last week, read my recap of episode 8.
Girls season 6 episode 9 opens with Hannah walking through a college. She stops in front of a group of friends and tells them to always work on their friendship.
She interviews at the college and they offer her a teaching job. She says that she’d like 24 hours to think about it.
Elijah Krantz asks Hannah why she’d want to leave New York. She says that New York hasn’t brought her anything but misery.
Later, Hannah meets with her dad Tad Horvath and his partner in Washington Square Park. She jokes that the nearby drum circle is as good a reason to leave New York as anything.
Hannah goes over to Shoshanna Shapiro‘s place. She finds out that she’s hosting a party and didn’t invite her. Shoshanna points out that Hannah is having a baby and neglected to tell her. Then she mentions that it’s an engagement party.
Shoshanna and her fiancé Byron Long give a toast. Hannah finds out that Elijah, Jessa Johansson and Marnie Michaels were also invited to the party and didn’t tell her about it. Shoshanna tells Hannah that she doesn’t want to fight with her and ruin the engagement party. But, Marnie calls a group meeting in the bathroom.
When Hannah and Jessa say that they don’t want to have a group meeting, Shoshanna says that’s probably the one thing they can agree on. Shoshanna says they can’t hang out together without one of them making entirely about themselves. Shoshanna says she’s realized how “exhausting, narcissistic and ultimate boring” their dynamic is. She says her new friends are the women at the party with “real jobs and purses.” She says they can stay if they want to because Byron allowed for extra guests.
Hannah talks to Jessa. They both cry and apologize to each other. Hannah says it’s okay because they were all just doing their best.
At the end of the episode, a montage shows all four girls dancing at the engagement party. This is intercut with Hannah moving into a new place upstate.
