Prediction from my house: Adam is falling back in love with Hannah through the movie, and even if he wasn't it's going to break up him and Jessa anyway.

I had the same feeling. I hope Hannah says no if he wants to get back together.

Hannah's decision to not get back with Adam was the climax of season 4 though, and now I'm remembering Adam fostering his sister's baby...also is Jessa still an aspiring nurse? I can see how this dovetails...

Other thoughts: I'm excited for whatever plans Shosh and Ray have for the cafe. Also it's interesting to see the film re-portray scenes from earlier on in the show (remember all those think pieces about the sex?)

The idea of Elijah as a surrogate dad would be a sitcom in itself.

I'm a bit bored with Marnie and Jessa's self-obsessed dramas here. In the past these characters have shown real growth. I would appreciate the same subtlety that's given to Hannah's character development. The argument with Elijah was so good from that perspective - Hannah is vulnerable and sympathetic and confused, all while blithely holding the conversation inside the kitchen, impeding the work of people who are far less privileged. She says sorry at the end - which is new for her - but it's more like "sorry you had to see that" rather than "sorry for my completely inappropriate choice of space, and for not attempting in any way to move it outside." That's far more complex a scene, and also more humorous, than either Marnie or Jessa are allowed this season. Bummer.

Yeah, considering this final season was about growing up and the characters not being "girls" anymore, it feels weird both characters regressed so much into early seasons me me me navel-gazing.
