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.

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.

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.

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.

Hypable speaks to co-founder Jeff Annison about Legion M’s goals, fan engagement, and potential impact on the entertainment industry.

An exciting new project launched over the summer: Legion M, the world’s first fan-owned entertainment company.

At San Diego Comic-Con, Hype Podcast sat down with co-founder and company president Jeff Annison, in order to learn more about the ambitious startup that promises to give fans more creative control of entertainment production.

The full interview is available to download here or via iTunes, or you can stream it below:

In the interview, Annison explains the mission of Legion M, which is to bring fans directly into the production process. Says Annison, “For the first time in history, we are architected to be built from the ground up to be owned by fans.”

With a ‘Legion’ of fan investors behind them, Annison believes that Legion M’s approach to selecting and developing projects will be very different from anything else we’ve seen in Hollywood.

Where usually creators will struggle to make their content stand out from the crowd, “bringing the audience into the process [of creating entertainment], we’ve already got a built-in audience,” Annison explains. “If you can have the audience of content be invested in content, it gives that content a competitive advantage.”

One of the key ways in which Legion M hopes to influence the creative industry is by opening the door for more diverse projects.

As Hollywood is so revenue-driven, oftentimes the ‘risk’ of letting a movie’s lead character be a woman, a person of color and/or a member of the LGBT community is simply considered too great. But Legion M, being owned by fans, has the opportunity to tip the scales. Because if the investors want more diversity and new kinds of stories, that’s exactly what they’re going to get.

“The reason that there are so many superhero movies and reboots and remakes… Hollywood’s figured out the formula. You pick something with an established fanbase, and if you make the movie you know it’s less risky because you know those people are gonna come see the next Superman movie,” says Annison. “Whereas if it’s an unknown story, you just don’t know. So we believe when you make the audience part of the process, these fans that are part of our studio … if you’ve got an audience that’s baked into it, that gives you so much more creative leeway.”

In practice, this means that Legion M, “could come up with a completely new and novel story that’s never been tried before, and know that it’s gonna have some success” — which means that it’d actually get produced, unlike many original ideas that come to Hollywood to die.

Further, fan owners of Legion M can experience unprecedented involvement with the creative process. Not only are they involved with selecting and developing projects, but, “our promise to our investors is that we’re gonna take you along for the ride. When we film a movie, we wanna live-stream from the set. When we have project opportunities, we wanna put them in front of you. We give the Legion a voice.”

To start with, Legion M is partnering with Seth Green and Matthew Senreich’s Stoopid Buddy Stoodios, which created Robot Chicken. Annison explains that they still have “dozens” of projects that networks have rejected, and Legion M is working on bringing some of them to life.

In terms of representation, Legion M doesn’t necessarily want to commit to a quota of diversity. Instead, where they expect to be able to influence Hollywood is at the “table” where these decisions are made — and, “because we’re owned by such a broad, diverse group of people, we’ve got a better shot than anybody else at being able to affect that change.”

As Annison explains: “Fans have the ultimate power. Our money is what makes this whole thing spin around. When we combine and come together, we’ve got all the power.”
