Season five picks up a few years after we last saw Hank Moody. He's living in New York and has moved on. After the unceremonious dumping of his latest girlfriend, Carrie, Hank's looking for a ticket out of town. Charlie calls with just such a ticket - a job on the Left Coast. Back in LA, Hank and Charlie drop in on the now-married Marcy and Stu Beggs. Stu rushes Hank off to a meeting with megarich hip-hop mogul Samurai Apocalypse. Written by
Did You Know?
After Hank finishes telling his story to Kali, he says that he's surprised that she made it all the way through the whole thing without killing herself. This is likely a reference to the movie Airplane! where characters continually commit suicide while listening to Ted Striker's sob story. See more
It's almost like the pursuit of this one woman, this one relationship became its own form of heroin. I was strung out. You know, I was driving her crazy making my kid miserable. When you finally give up and let go, good stuff starts to happen. She's better now. My kid's fantastic. I'm keeping it simple. Such a sad sweet tale of woe. I'm surprised you made it through the whole thing. I thought I might try to hang yourself there at some point.
