Well, jonesing Zombie Desi was more amusing than in all his other presences combined.

I felt sorry for Jessa. The jig was up for her.

He looks like someone in the Pacific Northwest knit a man.

If Shoshanna really did what the Jamba girls said she did, then she can't really blame Jessa for everything. She has to take responsibility for derailing her own life - and I would say her involvement with this crowd changed her for the better. It washed some of the youthful naivety from her eyes.

I hope Shosh & Jessa make up but given all of their track records, I'm not optimistic.

Loved the entire cabin scene to pieces. Including the senseless breaking of the tea set and Hannah not making a big deal of it. This was a good movement forward, on the floor among broken glass, for the two of them.

I just assumed that Desi was on drugs all the time and everyone knew it!

I think Marnie would have been freaked out right away if she knew fucknugget was on pills this much.

As bad as Jessa is, the Jambas don't seem that better.

Yes, Soshanna was kind of unreasonable in this episode, and blamed Jessa for things that are really her own fault, BUT remember that Shosh is about 3-4 years younger than the rest of the girls (they were 24 when the show started, and she was a junior in college). So she's at about the same age the other girls were in Season 2 or 3, when Hannah and Marnie were getting into coke-fueled screaming matches and breaking Jessa out of rehab. So relatively speaking, she's still the emotionally mature one of the group.
