HBO’s ‘Girls’ “Video Games” Preview: Meet Jessa’s Family
The concepts of ‘Girls‘ and “Video Games” don’t usually bring to mind Lena Dunham and her controversial-yet-acclaimed HBO series, but Sunday’s all-new episode will take on a new meaning altogether. Once again escaping the confines of Brooklyn as in last year’s Michigan-centric “The Return,” this Sunday’s ‘Girls’ outing “Video Games” will take Hannah and Jessa to meet the latter’s estranged father (Ben Mendelsohn) and his girlfriend (Rosanna Arquette), but how would you like a first look? Get a ‘Girls’ sneak peek inside!
‘Girls’ second season has made little secret of Jessa’s absence, partly due to Jemima Kirke’s real-life pregnancy and other stories that kept the character largely off-screen, but this Sunday’s “Video Games” will prove her most vital yet. The character drags Hannah along on an overnight trip to spend time with her estranged father and his out-there family, understandably turning out far from ideal.
HBO has released two new clips from Sunday’s episode, neither of which particularly bode well for either Jessa or Hannah as they undergo the impromptu trip. Will the visit prove everything Jessa needs to get past her failed marriage? What new controversy will Hannah court after her recent dalliance with Brooklyn doctor Joshuah in “One Man’s Trash?”
