What does Girls have in store for its final Season?
Girls is ending, but there are still surprises on the way
Girls is an interesting place right now. It’s unusual for HBO to have a show for as long as it has had Girls had not be constantly nominated for awards. In fact, it would be fair to say that Girls has been snubbed. The show exists in a place somewhere to the left of the spotlight — it gets a fair amount of attention while its own, but doesn’t dominate the conversation. That allows Girls a bit of freedom.
Season five ended with Hannah taking major strides to better herself, which is a potential trick that Girls has used time and time again. One thing that we do know is that the season is expected to have a healthy amount of guest stars, including The American’s Matthew Rhys, who recently outed himself as having a role on the show as well as being a fan in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter.
Watch Lena Dunham on The Tonight Show:
Girls has had a rich history of guest stars, though they usually only have small parts. Lucy Liu, Jenny Slate, and Patrick Wilson have all appeared on Girls. Girls also isn’t the sort of show that would end with a bang, so there is no reason to expect a huge surprise or revelation to end the final season. Girls may be many things, but it is better than that.
The characters don’t all have to settle, as that could actually undermine what the has been about all this time. It also won’t settle on parading guest star after guest star, though Matthew Rhys is probably only a single name on that particular list.
The final season of Girls doesn’t have to wow, it just has to conclude in a way that stays to true the show. While it’s true that it has struggled with that from time to time, it has managed to carve out a little space for itself. Whatever happens, we know that we’ll be seeing it before the next season of Game of Thrones.
