It's no wonder why HBO's Girls just won two Golden Globe Awards: the hit series, starring creator Lena Dunham, featured even more laugh-out-loud and cringe-worthy moments in its season 2 premiere Jan. 13.
The episode, titled "It's About Time," kicks off with Hannah Horvath (Dunham) spooning with her bisexual ex-boyfriend and new roommate, Elijah Krantz (Andrew Rannells). "I'm sorry I have a boner," Elijah tells her. "It's not for you."
After losing her virginity to Ray Ploshansky (Alex Karpovsky) in season 1, the bubbly Shoshanna Shapiro (Zosia Mamet) is first seen cleansing her apartment with incense. "I thank the higher powers for all of the gifts that I have already received -- like a keen mathematical mind and fairly fast-growing hair -- and I ask the universe to present me with my path and to ruin Ray's life," she chants. (The two haven't spoken since doing the deed.)
Cut to Marnie Michaels (Allison Williams), who quickly loses her job at the art gallery due to downsizing. Her boss -- who chose not to fire Marnie's male co-worker because she once slept with him and he could sue the company -- then asks Marnie for shopping advice. "Let's go in here," she says as they approach a store in New York City's West Village. "They have pants made of scuba material and I want you to tell me if they make me look crazy."
Meanwhile, Hannah is hooking up with a new flame, a Republican college student named Sandy (Community's Donald Glover). After playfully chasing each other in a bookstore, Glover's character tells Hanna, "It's really hard to run with a boner."
"I love how weird you are," Sandy tells Hanna. "Please don't say 'love' to me," she protests, prompting a discussion about her on-and-off love, Adam Sackler (Adam Driver).
