For all of Lena Dunham’s brilliant success with this show, especially this season, I have to admit being disappointed with the third season’s final episode. It’s become clear that Hannah is a yo-yo of good luck and bad choices, so she is either sublimely happy or murderous. Shoshanna has been kicked around all season, and hasn’t been able to get up out of the dust.
