WARNING: Girls spoilers

In last week’s episode, Hannah decided she wants to be a teacher. Is this because she’s afraid to continue to pursue her writing after the debacle of grad school? Or is it because she genuinely wants to impart her knowledge on the young? This question is dealt with in tonight’s all new episode of HBO’s Girls. And she hashes this out with the help of Mimi-Rose Howard. It’s true.

Synopsis for “Ask Me My Name”: Hannah (Lena Dunham) goes for drinks with Fran (Jake Lacy), a new coworker, before attending an unusual art show. Later, she spends time alone with Mimi-Rose (Gillian Jacobs), while Adam (Adam Driver) is unnerved by Ace (Zachary Quinto), Mimi-Rose’s friend.

Teases/Thoughts

-Hannah gets a quick start to her new career. And she’s kind of good at it. It’s fun to watch. She gives teaching her own Hannah twist.

-She gets to learn about what it’s like in the teacher’s lounge. It’s there she makes a new connection, played by guest star Jake Lacy. If Jake looks familiar, he should. He played Pete Miller on The Office and he was Joanna Garcia’s significant other on the short-lived sitcom, Better with You. He recently hit the big screen in Obvious Child.

-The art show is…interesting.
