While there is definitely chemistry between the two — and their respective friend groups agree — Shoshanna can’t go for it because a) she’s technically still dating Scott (Jason Ritter), even though she didn’t even bring him to Marnie’s wedding when she was in the States, and b) it’s never a good idea to date your boss.“Sheryl Sandberg would fucking kill me,” she says in a characteristically fast-talking, long-winded explanation.
It’s hard to tell whether Shoshanna is 100 percent truly happy in Japan, or if she’s just happy to be away from her problems in New York City.
Her friends often take her for granted and treat her poorly, talking down to her and putting their problems above hers.
Her boyfriend, Scott, is fine, just , but there is clearly something that prohibits her from wanting to fully commit to him — and it’s not just the frustration of maintaining a long-distance relationship.
Shosh keeps Scott on the fringes of her life, never really letting him get closer.
Marnie 2.0 even agrees with statements like “monogamy is a construct.” The honeymoon looks good on Marnie, though I do miss her usual, quick-to-anger self. Hannah, who likens Fran’s ex collection to “killing someone and keeping their shrunken head as a trophy,” isn’t happy with Marnie’s reaction, so she moves on to Ray and Elijah.
Here, she reveals that a lot of her anger is due to her insecurities.
(Porn doesn’t do it for him, he says.) In a rare instance, Hannah’s anger is a bit justified.
Keeping nudes of your exes — for selfish, pleasurable reasons — is cause for alarm, especially when you are in a committed relationship.
Though, to be fair, they also had trouble getting started during that first year out of school — and still haven’t quite figured it out yet.
And so, Shosh ended the fourth season with a boyfriend, a job, and a move to another country.
The scene is impossibly cute; Jessa sincerely compliments his performance while he shyly cringes and tries to fold in on himself. But Jessa sticks to her guns, saying she’s “not doing some will-they/won’t-they” thing even though they obviously are.
