Shoshanna and Jessa won't appear in "Girls" hit series finale

Meanwhile, the rest of the main cast of "Girls" Season 6 are expected to be part of episode 10. I want to come back and one of us could be morbidly obese! As "Girls" comes to an end on April 17, the answer is pretty clear: you can't, and you should stop asking. The episode, called "Goodbye Tour", suggests that the "girls" as we know them may have pretended to be the best of friends, but in actuality, they weren't. I'd go into detail about the impact this show has on us millennial women, but I'll save that for our last recap.

In its penultimate episode, Girls forces its four leads to face the future of their friendship-or what's left of it, at least. "Once the appropriate length of time had passed, we would be all in". Both of them broke down in tears, and Jessa gave Hannah's baby a dress. Will they forgive and forget?

And 2017 has given me fresh appreciation for a long-running performance that is coming to a close next weekend: Lena Dunham has always done excellent work as Hannah Horvath, the narcissistic, potentially brilliant avatar of herself she plays on her show "Girls". Of course that wouldn't occur to Hannah; she can't imagine a world without herself in it. Dunham's performance, even when she's going for a laugh, remains steadfast in that self-involved perspective. It would definitely be a piece of cake for her. Though it was closely watched and feminised in its critique, nobody could deny they were watching a unique millennial write her generation in a way others had failed to do - and that voice happened to be female. She was calling to offer Hannah the position, but at such short notice, Hannah asked if she could sleep on it before giving an answer.

On the other hand, Jessa made a truce with Hannah. As we learn later, she's also losing her girl friends. She tells the others, "I have come to realize how exhausting and narcissistic and ultimately boring this whole dynamic is, and I finally feel fearless enough to create some distance for myself". This was never more true than in the fourth season of the show when Hannah managed to blow up not merely her tenure at the Iowa Writers' Workshop by alienating her fellow students, but also to almost get herself fired from a promising substitute-teaching job.

"It's okay", Hannah says, full-on crying, her voice strained, after Jessa awkwardly expresses regret. She starts to lay into Shoshanna for not inviting her until Shosh makes the very valid point that Hannah didn't even bother to tell her about her pregnancy. Dunham dishes on why Hannah accepted Jessa's apology. "She can get anybody to talk to her on any subway". Everyone starts to vent their feelings to each other, but Shoshanna takes it to another level, as usual. Shoshanna exited first but stated that she did not fit in with the group. And yet the part of that episode that felt most intimate to me was the preteen playing Rihanna on her flute at the end. Whenever I stayed over at her house we slept top-to-tail, even though she had a bunk bed. - Marnie, describing the best ever meet cute between Shosh and her fiancé.

In the first series, Hannah tells Adam that she got herself into a bad situation, "for the story".

Hannah has been writing "for the internet" for all of five minutes, so naturally she gets hired at a university upstate to teach children how to blog or optimize SEO searches or something. In that moment, both Jessa and Hannah paused to take the emotion in. But in the second-last ever episode Shoshanna tells Hannah, Marnie and Jessa that she wants to "call it a day" on their friendship. Not you guys. I think we should all just agree to call it. OK? You know how it feels to come back from an off term, and it seems like everyone's hair has gotten longer in fast forward since you weren't there to see the gradual progress?

Hannah goes over to Shoshanna Shapiro's place.

She is keen to keep her political opinions to herself - indeed the topic is off limits during our interview - but she does admit to having attended the NY women's march in support of equality earlier this year, and is proud to be part of a generation that's so politically correct they have been labelled "snowflakes" for their delicacy. After all, one of the most lovely parts of physical intimacy is when your partner's body becomes not just a whole bunch of exposed skin, but something familiar and dear.

The series finale of Girls airs Sunday, April 16 at 10PM on HBO.
