‘Girls’ Episode Guide (April 2): Adam Delivers Surprising News to Hannah

“What Will We Do This Time About Adam?” (04/02/17) – Adam (Adam Driver) comes to Hannah (Lena Dunham) with surprising news. Jessa (Jemima Kirke) spends a day off on her own. Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet) slogs through helping Ray (Alex Karpovsky) with his oral-history project, until a fortuitous run-in with Abigail (Aidy Bryant), her old boss, infuses the venture with new energy.

“What Will We Do This Time About Adam?” was written by Judd Apatow & Lena Dunham. It was directed by Jesse Peretz.

Created by and starring Lena Dunham, the Emmy(R)-winning HBO series “Girls” takes a comic look at the assorted humiliations and rare triumphs of a group of women in their 20s.

Landress, Murray Miller and Bruce Eric Kaplan executive produce the show, which kicks off its ten-episode fifth season SUNDAY, FEB. 21 (10:00-10:30 p.m. ET/PT), followed by other half-hour episodes subsequent Sundays at the same time.

Enjoying new success as a writer after participating in “The Moth,” Hannah gets an assignment that could change her life. Divorced from Desi, Marnie seeks to remain independent, but her self-absorption could undermine a budding relationship with Ray. New couple Jessa and Adam embark on a creative project that could become a source of contention. Shoshanna flourishes at a marketing agency, but realizes her friendships may be holding her back.
