Let's take a moment to rejoice. After 10 episodes of dysfunctional relationships, cringe-inducing sex and a hasty marriage, "Girls" has finally returned to grace us with another season of sexual and professional disasters and occasional triumphs.
In the season finale of HBO's "Girls," Hannah and Marnie go forward with their "break-up," while Adam gets serious. Meanwhile, Jessa throws a very important impromptu party, much to the displeasure of Shoshanna.
Hannah is resentful of the literary success of a former classmate, while Marnie finally comes to her breaking point with supporting Hannah financially and emotionally. Meanwhile, Jessa gets an unexpected visitor.
Granted, these are early days. But so far what I've observed is exactly the opposite of what I would've thought. It's not the women from middle-class, college-educated backgrounds dressed in funky business casual who exert the most authority in their own lives.
