Elijah follows her into her bedroom and tells her to make her mark- to which Hannah assumes he is talking about urine. Elijah says no, “make your mark on these blank fucking walls!” as Hannah takes out a marker and scrawls on the wall of her bedroom. The pair don’t spend much time in their apartment, though, as Elijah wants to take Hannah to a club to meet the gay DJ’s named Andrew Andrew.
Jame might think the magic happens in a stupid proverbial circle on the wall of her offices, but it’s clear from this episode of “Girls” that magic happens when Hannah and Elijah are on coke. At the club, the two continue to bond over non-sequitors about ‘sleeping with yourself being a favorite dream, and a worst nightmare’. Then Hannah leaves Elijah briefly and begins dancing with a guy in a mesh yellow tank top. He wants to know if Hannah wants to switch shirts, to which she obliges, as he must be some sort of mind reader. Plus, he thinks Hannah is a great dancer, to which she agrees, but inquires about how long the two of them have been dancing together.
The CDC does not recommend doing lines of cocaine off a toilet seat during flu season
At this point, Hannah is wearing the yellow mesh tank top, her tits hanging out, singing along to Icona Pop “I Love It”- it’s like the anti-anti drug commercials from the 80s and the world’s worst after-school special. Everyone should want to do coke after seeing this episode, especially if you’re getting paid $200 to do so.
This episode should also win the Emmy for “Best Use of Song in a Drug Montage” if that category exists, because even “Breaking Bad” is going to have a hard time competing with Hannah singing along to Icona Pop. By Lena Dunham’s own admission, the “research” for this episode involved waking up in a dumpster in Koreatown, so she should at least be rewarded for her commitment to her character.
Amy Poehler may finally get an Emmy for “Parks and Rec” if she agreed to wear this mesh yellow tank top
When Elijah finds Hannah on the dance floor, the two retire to the bathroom to continue their binge, doing lines off a toilet seat. Elijah suddenly wants to get honest with Hannah, telling her how he fucked Marnie after their party. Hannah is ill-equipped to handle this news, seeing as she’s in a less than perfect state. Hannah asks if it was sexual, and it really wasn’t. Elijah admits that he lost his boner (that’s the third episode in a row that’s featured the word ‘boner’, by the way) and he “didn’t even come inside her!”, which I guess is bonus points when you’ve devastated a friend by fucking her best friend.
After leaving the club, Hannah and Elijah go to a drug store, where the fighting continues. Hannah is obviously reeling from this news, and Elijah points out that she thinks they all live in Hannah’s World and it wasn’t even about her. To further prove his point, Hannah kisses Elijah, to which he responds with “when did you eat jerky?” Solid and poignant question, Elijah, but Hannah retorts with “that is of no concern of yours”. Seeing as she just kissed him, though, it is somewhat his concern.
