Hannah And Joshua Get Intimate On HBO's 'Girls'
HBO's Girls did not feature Marnie (Allison Williams), Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet, 25), or Jessa (Jemima Kirke, 27) on Sunday night's near-bottle episode, "One Man's Trash." Instead, the installment had the feeling of a short film, as Hannah (Lena Dunham, 26) spent some time — and became intimate — with Joshua (Patrick Wilson, 39), a 40-something doctor separated from his wife, whose garbage cans Hannah had been using as the coffee shop’s stand-in dumpster.
The episode took off when Joshua confronted Ray about why his store’s trash kept ending up in his bins. Ray, unaware that Hannah had been the culprit all along, proceeded to give Joshua a piece of his mind, causing Hannah to quit her job at the coffee house. Hannah later felt the need to confess to Joshua, visiting him at his brownstone, where she proceeded to spontaneously kiss him, leading to sex on his kitchen counter.
After sex, they eat steak. Then more sex, then naked ping pong the next day, then more sex in trademark Girls fashion. The drama-rama came when Hannah passed out in Joshua's high-tech shower after inadvertently raising the temperature too high. All that sex, nudity and unconsciousness brought out Hannah's confessional side, and she found herself opening up to her new lover, expressing her never-ending insecurities and concerns about where her life is going and why she does all the things she does. "Please don't tell anyone this," Hannah whispers while Joshua strokes her hair. "But I want to be happy."
While Hannah sees Joshua as a spontaneous fling in the beginning, his role gradually evolves to something of a father figure in her assessment. Not surprisingly, in light of the girl's luck, however, Joshua doesn't seem so interested in wearing that particular hat.
Season two of Girls continues on HBO next Sunday at 9 p.m.
