Over the course of the last few seasons, the twentysomething girls of Girls have hardly changed at all, which makes them more empathetic, if a little frustrating — but only because, if you’ve ever been in your early 20s, you can see some of yourself in each of them. If insanity is repeating the same behaviors/actions over and over and expecting different results, then you might consider these women (and yes, the men, too) insane. But tonight’s episode brings some real signifiers of change, even if we remain skeptical.

At one point during this week’s episode of Girls, Hannah off-handedly describes the only way to solve a Rubik’s Cube: by taking the stickers off and re-sticking them in the proper arrangement. It’s such a casual comment, but one that easily defines the way Hannah — and her friends, and so many of us coming of age in our 20s — approaches problem-solving: by forcing things into the shape she’d like rather than doing the imperative work and navigation.

HBO’s Game of Thrones has cultivated an air that Season 5 will prove the most divergent yet from series creator George R.R. Martin’s literary works, yet the man himself can still be surprised. The Game of Thrones author recently teased that Season 5 will feature multiple character deaths not found in his novels, calling showrunners “even bloodier than I am.”

The upcoming end of FX’s ‘Justified’ will loose a tremendous amount of talent to the TV market, and HBO isn’t wasting time picking up one of the show’s biggest assets.

“How do you know if you’ve made the right decision?” That’s the question at the heart of this week’s ‘Girls,’ which sees Hannah struggling to figure out if she belongs in Iowa, while Shoshanna has a hard time finding the perfect job back in New York. All we want to know is if we’ve made the right choice, but it’s impossible to know until the choice has been made.
