'Girls' Recap: Hannah's Role Playing Bit Really Backfired

girls lena dunhamAfter complaining to her gay ex-boyfriend that Adam treats her "like an ottoman with a vagina", Hannah decides to make things interesting and gets herself all done up in a blonde wig for some role play. This episode of HBO's Girls was a bit surprising.

She thinks Adam's going to love it -- the wig, the fantasy. She's thinking that their sex life will magically become what it once was and Hannah's ottoman will be an ottoman and her vagina will be a vagina once more. It didn't quite work out that way though.


Maybe it was that awful lingerie thing Hannah was wearing. I'm fairly certain those granny panties weren't a part of the vision of whoever designed that black strap thing she was wearing.

What do you think of what's going on with Hannah and Adam?
