Girls aired its season two finale on Sunday, and it was a rather ambiguous conclusion to the episodes we’ve seen this winter. We had a lot of feelings.

Lena Dunham has created a very ambitious second season for her show this year, zooming in on unexpected characters and setting whole episodes in unfamiliar locations, trusting her audience to follow along. I’m not sure who will like this episode and who won’t, but for my part it felt like a bit of a stretch. Dunham has been writing for all sorts of characters this season — the mysterious doctor, Ray and Adam on their mission to Staten Island, and now Jessa’s father and girlfriend — and though I can understand why she wants to experiment with different voices, I wonder if she’s as adept at capturing the essence of a deadbeat middle-aged British estranged father as she is, say, a spoiled Midwestern Oberlin grad.

In today’s #watwc, Donald Trump’s Twitter was hacked, tweeting out a Lil’ Wayne lyric from Will.I.Am’s “Scream & Shout (Remix).” (“These h*es think they classy, well that’s the class I’m skippen.”) While Trump is busy “looking for the perpetrators,” Alex Alvarez has some ideas of who the hacker may be. Elsewhere: false impressions of adulthood, Lena Dunham perception trajectories, the sartorial choices of weathermen, and more!

First thing’s first: this episode seems to confirm what I began to suspect last week, that Lena Dunham’s idyll with Patrick Wilson could have been a fantasy. That she shows up at Café Grumpy and does not get reamed out by Ray for skipping out on a shift seems to support this. Of course, Ray could just be distracted because Shoshanna keeps trying to get him to pay for Learning Annex lectures from Donald Trump and the like, as she seems to be getting more and more freaked out about her older boyfriend’s lack of direction.

In today’s EOD roundup, this is the winter of
our discontent Beyoncé: the woman stole the show at the Inauguration and the Super Bowl, and she’s set to take TV by storm again with her upcoming HBO documentary. In order to promote said film, Life is But a Dream, Beyoncé sat down to a revealing interview with Vogue. Because we shouldn’t have to wait for the new gospel, the LA Times has ten choice quotes from the Queen herself and they are priceless.
