When the second season of Girls premieres, Hannah is seeing a new guy following her break-up with Adam, Marnie is unfulfilled at work and desperate for emotional support, Jessa returns from her honeymoon and inadvertently plants ideas in Hannah’s head, and Shoshanna has to navigate an increasingly complicated relationship with Ray. The four may have been in the real world for a while, but rather than getting the hang of things, it looks like they’re still struggling to figure out the ins and outs of adulthood.
Listed below are the dates, times, episode titles, episode descriptions, and replay information for the first three episodes of the second season of Girls.
