Girl Bad Friend
29 January 2013 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Hannah sits waiting for a writing job and when the interviewer Jamey sits down and the two talk. Hannah is told she could write articles on strange things even though Hannah does not seem into them. Jessa sells some clothes outside her house and the girls come around. Hannah is told by Marine she can gets some cocaine from a junkie who lives in her building. She is told not to take the drugs but still she wants to. Marine while at her club is visited by Booth Jonathan who says the two are going to have sex. Hannah and Elijah take the drugs together and begin to act crazy around the apartment. They find their way outside and go off to have some fun. Marine leaves the club with Booth Jonathan where he takes her to see something special. Hannah and Elijah make it to a club and they she finally lets loose. Hannah swaps her shirt and the two take more cocaine. Cut to Marine having sex with Booth Jonathan in an awkward way. Elijah tells Hannah of sleeping with Marine and while she is on the cocaine she still has a mind becoming shocked by the news. Hannah sees Laird the dealer following her the the three of them decide to go off to see Marine with Booth Jonathan. Hannah goes over to visit Marine and the two have it out about Elijah. Hannah shares her thought in a rousing speech to Marine where she lays out all her feelings while staying strong. This makes Marine leave in tears and Hannah then must kick Elijah out of living with her. Hannah returns with Laird to his apartment and they start to awkwardly make out. This was the best episode of the season so far. Another drug trip shows all the fun the show can have. Lena was just amazing showing she is now an actress especially in her scene where she tells Marine off. The writing and directing was all great. Even Marine with Booth Jonathan was funny while it was not interesting.
