I was sure that the reveal would be that Jessa is pregnant too. I guess not?

Yeah, it seemed like it for a minute but I think it was just stress vomiting.

Interesting that young women vomiting on TV is such a strong signal for pregnancy. (Even for me, a person who's been pregnant and didn't vomit once.)

Yeah pretty much any time a young lady is sick, tired, nauseous, or vomiting, it only means one thing.

Girls is in it's "getting good" part part of the season arc. The first part is always terrible. But this is the part where I can soak up the delicious face acting feels.

The diner scene where Hannah and Adam simultaneously realize that it's not going to work out was great. Dunham slowly and wordlessly dissolving into tears was very effective. She wants this so badly, but knows it's not real.

I read it as Hannah realizing that the stakes are too high for her now, and as much as she wants to be with him, and as much as she would enjoy the honeymoon, she can't let herself be attached to someone like Adam anymore, when she knows that inevitably, he would drag her down with him. For his part, I feel like Adam has grown enough to realize that even though he can see himself as the stable dad-type, he's not that person, at least not yet. And he cares enough for Hannah to know that's the right decision for her. Before, neither would have given up without pressing the drama until it hurt.
