Girls sets up the pieces for next week’s finale with tonight’s episode, “I Saw You.” Read our full recap below!

Shocking discoveries, Jessa’s employment, and the streak of Shoshanna’s honesty continues on tonight’s all new Girls! Read our recap of season 3, episode 11, “I Saw You,” and catch up on all the Patti LuPone-filled drama.

Up Next: Catching up with the couple in danger first, Hannah and Adam’s sexual needs become something more akin to an item on a to-do list. Their relationship is not on a “break” per say, but more of a seasonal hiatus. There are still a few hints of exciting routine popping in every now and then, but the real show will not return until Adam has completed the rehearsal process.

After their rendezvous, Hannah strolls by Ray’s on a restless walk to stumble into Adam running lines, in his trench coat, with Ray. Hannah tells Adam she feels like they are breaking up in slow motion. Adam says that in his mind, he switches to “play time” when he is with her. He assures her that they are fine and one day when she has something going on, she will understand why he needs the space now.

Adam takes a bath and Ray shaves while the two discuss their womanly woes. Ray admits it is time for him to settle for nothing less than perfect, and the apartment is his first step.

Recognize Your Gift: Taking the job as Soojin’s assistant, Marnie quickly realizes that Soojin is not gallery owner material. Having a minute alone with an artist she studied in school, Marnie chats about her work and the people who do not appreciate it. The photographer tells Marnie that getting older and seeing a shell of the person you once were is the pits.

Later in the gallery, Jessa swings by as Marnie tries to answer for her qualifications when asked her opinion on a piece. Instead of getting in the way, Jessa offers her swift opinion on a piece and her confidence speaking her mind lands her a job archiving the artist’s work.

Patti, Patti: Hannah revisits Patti with an additional member to her interview team. Apparently talking about life and love and the theater did not present a strong case for bone density. Elijah springs at the opportunity to be in the same room as the Broadway legend. His plea with puppy dog eyes grants him access, but on two conditions: no talking and no touching anything named Tony in her presence.

Elijah, catching his breath at the mere sight of Patti, interjects his comments and sets off another life chat with Ms. LuPone. Patti asserts that she always knew who she was, right from the start. The Kennedy-esque lad in the bow tie, and the girl looking for bone density quotes, can’t stop her from derailing and end up staying for dinner and drinks.

Hannah becomes alarmed when she discovers that Patti’s husband put his dream of writing to the back seat so that he could support Patti’s career fully. Seeing the subtle distaste in his smile for the passion he lost, Hannah’s outburst at her next GQ meeting about squandering talents does not go over well. Want to live each day like a roller coaster for creative genius? Start off by being unemployed, Hannah.

Open Mic: Relaxed and natural are two of the farthest adjectives to describe Marnie. However, that is the attitude Desi wants to bring to their performance. He did see some of her infamous YouTube videos and warns her that it made him a bit uncomfortable… At the actual show, it turns out her observations on their chemistry leaves him a little more uncomfortable.

As they take the stage and sing their duet, Hannah, Elijah, and Shosh are there to lend their support. Taking everyone, especially Elijah by surprise, Shosh takes a minute to interject that Hannah must be feeling a bit low. After all, everyone banked on her being the breakout of the group, but now Adam is on Broadway and Marnie is basically a pop star. So what has she done lately?

Marnie meets the famous Clementine and fumbles in her usual bundle-of-nerves jumbled way. Skipping out on drinks with the cast, Marnie goes straight to Ray’s, ignoring his need to define boundaries and straight to his bed. Hannah goes to meet Adam and breaks up the fun stories to announce she got fired from GQ…intentionally. You know, for the unemployment.

The night ends with Adam taking Hannah back to Ray’s, but her attention is broken when she hears a commotion in Ray’s bed. Upon further investigation, Hannah opens the door to find Marnie in a compromising position. She leaves saying, “You will never judge me again.”

Stray Observations:

•Elijah’s description of Marnie, “She is awful and she needs to stop,” pretty much sums up the entire arc for her character this season.

Watch the Girls season 3, episode 12 finale, “Two Plane Rides,” Sunday, March 23 at 10 p.m. ET on HBO.

A new Fifty Shades Darker trailer was released on Wednesday and ups the sexy for the sequel.

Ana and Christian are getting back together in the Fifty Shades of Grey sequel, but the former has a couple of new rules: No secrets, way less BDSM. Christian agrees, but new problems come to light: Is someone from the millionaire’s past haunting him?

Dakota Johnson continues to bring a fun vibe to Ana Steele, playing the awkward lines with self awareness better than Kristen Stewart ever did as Bella in Twilight. “Have dinner with me,” Christian begs. “Okay fine, I will have dinner with you, because I’m… hungry,” Ana replies. The line could come off corny if executed poorly, but Dakota has a strong hold on playing this character for fun.

Tickets for Fifty Shades Darker are now on sale. Check out a new poster for the movie below:

The Fifty Shades Darker synopsis reads, “When a wounded Christian Grey tries to entice a cautious Ana Steele back into his life, she demands a new arrangement before she will give him another chance. As the two begin to build trust and find stability, shadowy figures from Christian’s past start to circle the couple, determined to destroy their hopes for a future together.”

The movie hits theaters this Valentine’s Day. It stars Dakota Johnson, Jamie Dornan, Eric Johnson, Jennifer Ehle, Victor Rasuk, Luke Grimes, Rita Ora, Eloise Mumford, Max Martini, Bella Heathcote, Kim Basinger and Marcia Gay Harden, and is directed by James Foley.

Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda is an excellent coming of age/coming out LGBT YA novel which we’ve raved about here on Hypable before. Nick Robinson is definitely an actor we can picture in the role, so we can’t wait to see him play the adorable character.

The film is being produced by Wyck Godfrey’s Temple Hill Entertainment, who’s responsible for The Maze Runner series, The Twilight Saga, and the upcoming Power Rangers.

What do think of Nick Robinson as Simon?

If you haven’t read it yet, we highly recommend that you do. The book was first published last year:

After you read it, be sure to check out our exclusive interview with Becky Albertalli. Simon was her first novel!

Netflix has unveiled a new Series of Unfortunate Events trailer, showing off Neil Patrick Harris’ excellent portrayal of the evil, wacky, will-stop-at-nothing-to-get-that-money Count Olaf.

Neil Patrick Harris’ ability to convincingly become any person — whether male or female, young or old, ugly or beautiful — becomes abundantly clear in the latest ASOUE trailer. While some of us may’ve been a little skeptical of his casting initially, it’s hard to imagine anyone else in the role after seeing previews like this.

The trailer begins with narrator Lemony Snicket (played by Patrick Warburton) warning that the new Netflix show is no delightful watch. Then the focus turns to Olaf and his mission to steal the children’s fortune, left to them by their parents after their untimely deaths:

A Series of Unfortunate Events premieres all eight episodes of its first season on January 13, 2017.

“Based on the internationally best-selling series of books by Lemony Snicket (aka Daniel Handler) and starring Emmy and Tony Award winner Neil Patrick Harris, A Series of Unfortunate Events recounts the tragic tale of the Baudelaire orphans — Violet, Klaus, and Sunny – whose evil guardian Count Olaf will stop at nothing to get his hands on their inheritance. The siblings must outsmart Olaf at every turn, foiling his many devious plans and disguises, in order to discover clues to their parents’ mysterious death.”

Another trailer was released two weeks ago — you can watch it here.

Is ‘Unfortunate Events’ looking as good as you hoped?

Harris previously confirmed that each book will be adapted into two episodes of the show. The first season of ASOUE covers the first four books, so presumably season 2 will roughly cover another four books. There are a total of 13 books in Lemony Snicket’s series.
