Did you feel that? Did you? That was the sensation of you and your discomfort getting that much closer to hate-watching the next season of Girls. It might have manifested itself as a nervous tingle in your butt cheeks or a pinching in your teeth or an itchiness in your palms, but all those symptoms point to the same cause — they’re currently filming season three in New York City. Don’t believe me? Well that’s kind of weird, first of all, because I’m a hard-hitting journalist and I would never lie to you, but I do also have proof. First of all, Lena Dunham has been tweeting about it for weeks, but we also now have pictures of the cast filming in SoHo, and hark! lo! What do my eyes perceive?
Why it’s Jessa, played by Jemima Kirke, haughtily smoking a cigarette beside the perfectly and ridiculously coiffed Shoshanna, played by Zosia Mamet. I don’t know about you, but after the way she up and vanished at the end of last season, I was worried that Jessa had gone the way of Christopher Abbot, who abruptly packed up his character Charlie and hit the road after he reportedly clashed one too many times with Lena on set. But thankfully, that seems not to be the case, which is great news for Allison Williams, because it’s one more person Marnie can humiliate herself in front of now that Charlie is gone. For a while there I was nervous this whole season would just be her spread-eagled naked in a room (with her breasts tastefully covered, of course, as Lena has a virtual monopoly on nudity), singing acoustic versions of Kanye West songs and having terrible sex all by herself. It’s not like that could possibly make the show any more difficult to watch than it already is.
