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.

Quiz: What is your pet’s Ilvermorny house?

Why should you be the only one who gets a second wizarding house?

1:00 pm EDT, July 29, 2016

Will your pet be sorted into the same Ilvermorny house as you, or will you have to disown them for joining your rival?

Step aside Hogwarts, there’s a new wizarding school in town (or rather, across the sea)! With a new school comes new houses, and a new sorting test. You might’ve gone through an identity crisis after taking the test for yourself, but you’re not the only one who needs sorting. That furry, scaly, or feathery friend needs to know where they belong too, and we’re here to do just that! Last time we helped you find out what Hogwarts house your pet would be sorted into, so now we’ll help you figure out what Ilvermorny house they belong in.

It’s typical for pets to have similar personalities to their owners, so maybe your pet will end up in the same house as you. But to those who have house rivalries, brace yourselves: It’s also possible your pet will end up in a different house than you, maybe even your rival house! Will you be saying ‘bye bye birdie,’ or do you thrive in competition? That probably depends on your Hogwarts and Ilvermorny house.

Whether you have a dog, cat, rabbit, bird, or reptile, all pets are welcome at Hypable’s Ilvermorny sorting ceremony! Take the quiz below and let us know where your pet’s loyalties lie, and be sure to take it for each of your pets (unless they’re a squib. Is there an American name for squib?). Don’t want any of them to feel left out!


Now that you know your pet’s Ilvermorny house, maybe you’ll want to decorate their bed with their house crest (shoutout to the Hufflepuffs)! Or maybe you’ll forbid them from entering your room if they’re in a different house (shoutout to the Slytherins)!

Did your pet get the same Ilvermorny house as you?

Forget seeing Luke Cage and Daisy Johnson in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. According to Jeph Loeb, it’s simply too hard to plan.

Although the Marvel movies and TV series ostensibly exist in the same universe, and although Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. does its best to include Avengers references whenever possible, TV show characters are unlikely to ever show up in the movies.

This despite Chloe Bennet’s continued efforts to remind people that she is, in fact, Marvel’s first on-screen female Asian superhero, and the awesome crossover possibilities the Marvel Netflix series have opened up.

Marvel fans have long been aware of the difficulties of bringing TV characters into the movie ‘verse, but at the 2016 TCAs, Jeph Loeb provided a few more reasons for why it’s practically impossible to coordinate.

“Part of the challenge of doing this sort of thing is that the movies are planned out years in advance of what it is that we are doing,” Loeb says, as quoted by SlashFilm. “Television moves at an incredible speed. The other part of the problem is that when you stop and think about it, if I’m shooting a television series and that’s going to go on over a six-month or eight-month period, how am I going to get Mike [Colter] to be able to go be in a movie? I need Mike to be in a television show.”

In terms of planning out the character arcs, this makes a lot of sense. A Marvel movie might be mapped out years in advance of production, for not to mention release, which means any character scheduled to appear would need to have their stories planned for many seasons in advance. The continuity would certainly be hard to keep track of.

Of course they could still throw in cameos, which fans would probably really appreciate — and crossovers from movies-TV are much more doable, as evidenced by Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders), Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and Lady Sif (Jaimie Alexander)’s multiple appearances on AoS.

But Marvel is wary of doing that too much, too, because “we never want to be known as an Easter egg farm. It has to work within the story. We never want to do Luke Cage gets into a cab as Foggy Nelson and Matt Murdock are getting out of the cab,” Loeb says, referencing The Man From U.N.C.L.E..

However, don’t lose hope yet. “Anything is possible,” says Loeb. “As I often get reported by you folks for saying #ItsAllConnected, our feeling is that the connection isn’t just whether or not somebody is walking into a movie or walking out of a television show. It’s connected in the way that the shows come from the same place, that they are real, that they are grounded.”

If Emily Blunt and Lin-Manuel Miranda weren’t enough to get you excited about Mary Poppins Returns, maybe Meryl Streep’s name on the roster will do the trick.

Mary Poppins Returns is not a remake of the original 1964 classic but rather a sequel to the Julie Andrews-led musical. As such, it stands to reason that we’ll be getting some new characters this time around. One of those characters will be Miranda’s Jack, who will be a street lamplighter.

And, according to Variety, another one of those new characters will also be portrayed by none other than Meryl Streep, who will be taking on the role of Mary Poppins’ cousin, Topsy. And, yes, the legendary actress will be taking on a singing role for the film.

This will also reunite Streep with her Into the Woods co-star Blunt, as well as Director Rob Marshall and Producer Marc Platt. Streep played the Witch in Into the Woods, while Blunt portrayed the Baker’s Wife opposite James Corden.

Disney’s official synopsis for Mary Poppins Returns reads:

Blunt has been cast as Mary Poppins and Miranda will play a new character, a street lamplighter named Jack. Drawing from the wealth of material in P.L. Travers’ seven additional novels, the story will take place in Depression-era London (when the books were originally written) and follows a now-grown Jane and Michael Banks, who, along with Michael’s three children, are visited by the enigmatic Mary Poppins following a personal loss. Through her unique magical skills, and with the aid of her friend Jack, she helps the family rediscover the joy and wonder missing in their lives.

Mary Poppins Returns and will hit theaters December 25, 2018.

Are you on board with ‘Mary Poppins Returns’ now that Meryl Streep has joined the cast?
