"Life, man. I can't guarantee perfection, but I can guarantee intrigue."
For the Girls fans out there, you might remember Hannah uttering these words to newborn baby Sample in the season 4 finale of the HBO series. And boy, did she hit the nail on the head with that one.
You see, the Girls group is far from perfect. They're narcissistic, childish, and often shortsighted. They've stolen each other's boyfriends, hidden secrets from one another, found themselves in jail and rehab, slept with people they shouldn't have, married people they shouldn't have, and so on. They've made mistakes that feel authentic — yet have consistently grown from them and supported each other along the way.
They've learned to happy dance together, wordlessly slip into each other's beds, cry to each other, and even bathe together (yep, that happened). That raw, vulnerable take on female friendship is exactly what's made peering into the lives of Hannah Horvath and co. so deeply irresistible for the past six seasons.
So, we wanted to honor the series finale in the only way that seemed fitting: by putting on a retrospective event with HBO that allows Girls fans to experience the emotional, relatable journey all over again. Ahead, you can see some of the real-life memorabilia and set pieces that helped bring the show to life, along with an epic recreation of Hannah's apartment and an illustrated gallery touching on some of the finest moments from the show. The best part is, if you're in NYC, you can still attend. Get the details here. And don't forget to tune in to the final episode of Girls on Sunday, April 16 at 10 p.m. EDT.
Farewell, Girls. You weren't perfect, but damn you were intriguing.
