Girls Preview: Chris O'Dowd Guest Stars In Weirdos Need Girlfriends Too

Last week the Girls all went to Bushwick for the best party ever but ended up in very different places. You know, emotionally. Marnie had the toughest time, coming face to face with Charlie who was literally face to face with some new girl only two weeks after they split. Jessa finally had the long gestating, awkward (non)sexual encounter with her boss (or technically her boss' husband since he has no job) which ended pretty poorly. Oddly, it's Hannah who came out of the episode happy and I loved the final shot of her, Marnie, Adam and his bike in the back seat of the cab. Actually, Shoshanna could also be happy giving Ray (non)sexual groin messages, but she's so high strung with her virginity 'problem' and, well, crack it was tough to tell.

Unfortunately, Shoshanna is also absent from all of the previews for this coming week's episode, so you'll have to tune in to see what everyone's favorite 'Jewish American Princess' is up to this week. Ray called her that, not me. HBO released a preview for "Weirdos Need Girlfriends Too" a few days ago which played up Marnie's post break-up depression and I was pretty stoked to see that Adam was hanging around their apartment. Something about Marnie and him together seems magical. Oh, Hannah's there too. Here are two more clips for tonight's episode which, going by the title, will largely be devoted to Adam ingratiating himself into Hannah's life as the 'weirdo' boyfriend.

For all his many faults, I enjoy Adam's presence, his off-the-wall comments ("I don't do ice cream, it's like sweet mucus") and he seems to be a positive influence on Hannah. Okay, that's a huge stretch but he does have her out jogging. If that's what you call that. This second clip features guest star Chris O'Dowd (!).

It seems like O'Dowd (Bridesmaids and The IT Crowd) is playing some kind of rebound guy for the down and out (on the town with Jessa) Marnie. It was nice to see the odd couple bonding in the preview but it doesn't look like Marnie and Jessa's night out stays a duet as O'Dowd's 'new to the area' Mr. Suave lures them both back to his place. Not to mention that that he's putting on an American accent. That in and of itself makes this episode a must see.

Girls airs Sundays at 10:30 p.m. ET on HBO. It stars Lena Dunham, Jemima Kirke, Zosia Mamet and Allison Williams. From executive producer Judd Apatow, Girls was created by Lena Dunham.
