“Girls” Season 4 Episode 4 “Cubbies” aired on Sunday, Feb. 8, 2015, at 9:00 p.m. on HBO. “Girls” gives a pre-valentine candy, but not the sweet kind.

Hannah, unable to deal with her exasperation of Iowa, endears herself even more. Although Hannah’s path to being an artist is clearly an unpaved one, she still wants to pursue it. Her father’s encouragement poses a two-pronged scenario. Her stay in Iowa legitimizes her stand in her path to becoming an artist, and her moving back to New York will make her father’s encouragement her futile.

Shoshanna, on the other hand, learned how the world works — again. Looking for a job is something that we all went through. But with Shoshanna’s, it’s just too comical to watch. Apparently, her astuteness with relationship works and their dynamics is nowhere near her ability to find job. Her naiveté is clearly not helping her.

Marnie is just left there dry. Yes, we’re calling it out. We feel like she needs more than her quest to be an artist. The show talks so much about how these girls are after their own definition of artistry, and yet here she is, artist and all. She’s clearly doing it. Even if she’s had some serious mishaps getting there, it’s not even an issue. But when she introspects on her life as an artist and look for that one mistake she made, that is letting Desi into her pants. Marnie’s character is the best person to make mistakes because her character knows better. She’s way ahead of her friends in terms of beauty and talent, and it annoys the people around her when she serves up an extra amount of Marnie-ness.

Let’s go back to Hannah. Hannah’s heading back to New York, and she’s in for a surprise. She gets to discover Mimi Rose has been shacking up with lonely boy Adam. We already know this as this was dropped a couple of episodes ago, and now we’ll have to wait how Adam and Hannah will deal with it and also the fact that Jessa knew about it. But hey, friends do that, right?
