This season, Lena Dunham’s Girls took us on an emotional rollercoaster with euphoric (and even drug-induced) highs and snorting-coke-off-of-a-public-toilet-seat lows. While last year’s episodes focused on character development and relationships, season 2 centered around the six main characters’ breakdowns and path to rebuilding.

While it has taken us a few days to really come to terms with the fact that there will be no new episodes of Girls until next year, we want to properly celebrate the madness and brilliance that was season 2. From the horribly cringeworthy to the utterly hilarious and everything in between, here is our collection of the most memorable moments of Girls ‘ second season.

Marnie and Elijah’s “Three Pumps” (2×01)

Girls Season Two Marnie and Elijah

This whole scene made us throw our hands over our eyes and peer at the screen through our fingers. It was messy, sudden, and just plain uncomfortable. Marnie’s desperation and Elijah’s loneliness were all too evident. Then Elijah kept repeating that the act only consisted of “three pumps.” If we never have to hear Elijah utter those two words ever again, we’ll die happy.

Hannah and Sandy’s Breakup (2×02)

Girls Season Two Sandy and Hannah Breakup

This scene was so poignant because it really delved into how some people today see race and politics. Hannah oversimplified and generalized the views of the conservatives and then defended white women as if they are a minority. The absolute best part of the scene though was when Hannah used “flip it and reverse it” in talking about white women, and then denied knowing that it’s a famous line in a Missy Elliot song. Hannah’s discussion of race definitely hit the nail on the head in terms of how hypocritical and backwards many people’s social viewpoints still are.

The Mesh Top (2×03)

Can we all just take a moment to appreciate how awesome it was that Lena Dunham spent more than half of the episode walking around in a neon mesh top? Sure, it was pretty jarring at first to have a clear view of Hannah’s chest but after a while the shirt started to look pretty cool. Trendworthy, even. In fact, we may have liked it better than the top she traded away. The image of her in that top will not fade from our memories any time soon.

A Conversation Between Friends (2×06)

Girls Season Two Marnie Hannah Conversation

Who knew that their relationship could fall so far? This scene between Hannah and Marnie was absolutely heartbreaking. We could see the girls drifting apart with each lie that they told. The combination of their faces, wavering voices, and lonely surroundings brought tears to our eyes and formed lumps in our throats. As Hannah writes in the season finale, “A friendship between college girls is grander and more dramatic than any romance … ”

Hannah and the Q-Tip (2×09)

Girls Season 2 Hannah Qtip

We all knew what was coming as soon as she put that Q-tip near her ear. We’ve all heard the horror stories. Lucky for us, we’re now all terrified of swabbing our ears out ever again. The look on Hannah’s face and that piercing screech that came out of her mouth was enough to make our skin crawl. This moment made for a really powerful indicator of Hannah’s mental state and will probably serve as a PSA for ear care for years to come.

Adam’s Sexual Domination (2×09)

Girls Season Two Adam and Natalia

That was the best euphemism we could think of for the horrible act that closed out the penultimate episode of the season. This single scene demonstrated just how much alcohol, and Hannah for that matter, has affected Adam’s life. You could sense just how uncomfortable and unhappy Shiri Appleby’s character felt underneath that maniacal version of Adam. We hope to never see that side of him again.

The “FaceSpace” Scene (2×10)


Season 2 ended with what was quite possibly the best scene of the series so far. The emotion of the scene stemmed from these two broken people essentially helping each other when nobody else can. Hannah chooses to FaceTime Adam because she knows that he best understands what she is going through. He knows about her past and loves her for it. Hannah, on the other hand, understands Adam’s issues but has not fully accepted them until now.

The image of Adam holding Hannah in his arms truly conveys the season’s closing message that everything is going to be ok for the both of them. If we had to pick the most memorable moment of the season, this would be it.

What moments stick out in your mind from this season of ‘Girls’? Are there any that you think we missed?

Fox has moved the third and final Maze Runner movie to 2018.

The cast and crew were only a few days into filming The Death Cure in March when Dylan O’Brien suffered serious injuries on set, prompting the production to be put on a break so he could recover. When his recovery ended up taking longer than expected, the production was put on an indefinite hold.

Now, a plan to resume the shoot seems to be in place. Fox announced Friday The Death Cure will be hitting theaters January 12, 2018, which is nearly a year later than the original February 2017 date. The last Maze Runner movie, The Scorch Trials, opened last September.

Production on The Maze Runner: The Death Cure likely won’t resume until late this year or early next. Dylan O’Brien has already committed to another movie which is expected to shoot this summer.

Getting the rest of the cast and crew back together to shoot The Maze Runner finale may be a bit of a challenge since they may’ve committed to other projects that were supposed to be shooting after they finished The Maze Runner. However, the new Death Cure release date suggests Fox has found a time that’ll work for everyone.

Tom Cavanagh will return to The Flash in season 3 as a series regular, though which character he’ll be playing remains to be seen.

Cavanagh has had a unique acting challenge on The Flash, playing a different version of his character in each of the first two seasons — and now it looks like he’ll be doing it for a third season in a row, as EW confirms that he will be a series regular in season 3.

In season 1, Cavanagh played Eobard Thawne, aka the Reverse Flash, in Harrison Wells’ body. Thawne, after traveling back in time, killed the original Wells and took his form to expedite the development of the particle accelerator so he could return to his own time. Thawne was written out of existence in the season 1 finale, though, leaving fans curious about who Cavanagh would be playing in season 2.

This past season, Cavanagh played the Earth-2 version of Harrison Wells, nicknamed Harry, who was a significantly different character from the man we thought was Wells in season 1. However, in the season 2 finale, Harry and his daughter, Jesse, returned to Earth-2.

The Flash season 2, episode 6 recap Wells

So, who does that leave for Cavanagh to play in the third season?

My guess would be the Earth-1 version of Harrison Wells, who we only briefly met in a flashback in season 1. Why the original Wells? Because in the final moments of the season 2 finale, Barry traveled back in time and stopped Thawne from killing his mother. This means the timeline in which Thawne killed Wells and took his form no longer exists, so Earth-1 Wells would be the version left alive.

Assuming he does play the original version of the character, the one who was killed and had his identity stolen, it will be interesting to see Cavanagh inhabit yet another version of the character. While we already met Wells briefly in the flashback to his death, that was a small sample size. I look forward to seeing him differentiate another Wells from those he’s already played for entire seasons.

Are you excited to see more Tom Cavanagh on ‘The Flash’?

‘Glee’ alum Mark Salling indicted on child pornography charges

The actor is facing a lot of jail time.

4:55 pm EDT, May 27, 2016

Following an arrest in December, Glee star Mark Salling (who played Puck on the Fox series) is now facing child pornography charges.

A federal grand jury has charged the 33-year-old actor with two counts of child pornography after a search of his home turned up “thousands” of images and videos involving children, TMZ reports. He will be arraigned in early June.

Salling’s charges potentially come with big sentences: 5 to 20 years in prison for receiving child porn, and another 20 years for possessing it.

After Glee went off air last year, Salling has worked on only one project: The action movie Adi Shankar’s Gods and Secrets which is slated to hit theaters later this year.

The actor has been in trouble with the law before — he was sued for sexual battery in 2013.
