After a season that saw most of its characters flounder, the return of "Girls" saw its titular heroines making slightly better choices. It began with a callback to the pilot, showing Hannah Horvath sitting at dinner with her parents. Only this time, instead of cutting her off, they’re celebrating her success. Hannah got into the Iowa Writer’s Workshop and will soon be moving out of Brooklyn to attend.
She thanks them for for all their help over the years, pausing to add "even in the moments when superficially it didn’t seem like you were supporting me and it seemed like you were criticizing my choices and doubting my talent, I know you were supporting me in your own way.”
