WARNING: Girls Spoilers

Well last week’s episode of HBO’s Girls took a turn.

Hannah is pregnant. The baby daddy is that surf/waterski instructor Riz Ahmed played in the season six premiere.

This baby development is huge. Much bigger than Jessa and Adam deciding to make a movie about Adam and Hannah and Jessa’s complicated and convoluted relationship story. Much bigger than Ray finding his friend and boss dead at his house (sorry Hermie and RIP.) Much bigger than everybody in the world outing Marnie’s narcissistic tendencies. And even bigger than the fact that Hannah ran into Patrick Wilson’s Joshua at the ER. This blast from the (Season 2) past meant a whole lot less once he so casually broke the pregnancy news to her. She showed up to secure some meds for her UTI. She left forever changed.

And in tonight’s episode, Hannah lets this game-changing event register. She tries to figure out what she wants to do. This is all accompanied with a bit of a wacky adventure, involving her mom and Elijah.

Official HBO Synopsis for “Gummies”

Adam (Adam Driver) and Jessa (Jemima Kirke) begin shooting scenes for their film, but she questions his creative direction.

In town to visit Hannah (Lena Dunham), her mother, Loreen (Becky Ann Baker), has a hard time accepting the next phase of her life. Marnie (Allison Williams) does a less-than-stellar job of being there for a grieving Ray (Alex Karpovsky).

Death. Pregnancy. Perception. Support. Old age. “Gummies” deals with some heavy topics with a Girls-ified spin. Hannah has to contemplate whether she’s ready for motherhood. The writer in her tries to help this process along.

The other part of the episode that’s super interesting is this movie that Jessa and Adam are making (in record time, with money coming from where? We’re not sure). It feels like it’s going to be an illuminating project for Jessa. She has certain notions about Adam and Hannah that may or may not necessarily jive with what she’s always believed. For now, she’s doing the Jessa thing. She’s making inappropriate observations and suggestions in the name of being a producer. But at some point, she’s going to have to open her mind to what’s being presented to her. When that happens, it’s going to be interesting to see how she reacts.

The final season of Girls airs Sunday nights at 10/9c on HBO.
