TVOM: "Tonight’s episode of Girls, “Female Author,” penned by Sarah Hayward and directed by Jesse Peretz, opens with one pajama-clad Hannah Horvath Skype-ing with Jessa. The former tells the latter that because the frequency of her class is once weekly, free time abounds. However, instead of dedicating her spare days to writing, she has been excelling at procrastinating. Her excuse for making brownies instead of focusing on her craft is that she is in a pre-writing phase. Jessa barely reacts to that statement, perhaps because she is used to Hannah acting that way, or she may still be harboring resentment to her friend for leaving, or maybe, just maybe, Jessa just does not care. She is a hard character to fully read, which, incidentally, is one of the most interesting facets she has displayed throughout the first four seasons of Girls."
