Hannah video chats with Jessa and asks about Adam. She says they haven’t seen eachother much and he hasn’t talked about her.

Marnie tries telling her that she is not just a mistress, saying his girlfriend has an autoimmune disease that gives her fevers and rashes and if he tells her anything upsetting it will risk her health. Ray tells her that this guy just wants to have his cake and eat it too and she is definitely just a mistress. Ray says she thinks she shouldn’t be with this guy because he’s an asshole and a coward. He says the guy’s biggest flaw is that he hasn’t chosen Marnie and they make out.

Shoshanna goes to an Ann Taylor Loft interview and confesses to the interviewer that this is just a practice interview for a job she really cares about.

Desi and Marnie meet with a record company, who assumes they are a couple and asks how long they have been together. Marnie awkwardly asks for a cigarette out of nowhere.

Outside, Desi and Marnie argue as he asks what is wrong with her. She sits him down and says that she can’t be his mistress anymore. He says that no one thinks of her as a mistress, and she says no one thinks of her ever because no one thinks of the two of them as together. She asks why he has a girlfriend that isn’t her. He says maybe she should be exploring and embracing her feelings so they can have an amazing relationship. She says that she does know what she wants, he just isn’t offering it to her.

Jessa and Adam talk about Hannah. He says that when she calls she only talks about dumb things, nothing deep, and asks if it’s okay if he throws out Hannah’s refrigerator magnets.

Jessa asks Adam about the woman he is seeing, and he says it’s not like he sees her everyday.

Jessa decides to pee on the street, and gets accosted by police. When she refuses to take a ticket and walks away, she gets cuffed. Adam starts flipping out because the cops are being aggressive, so he gets arrested too.

Elijah and Hannah are at a house party when the classmates who had criticized her story walk in. She asks him why she doesn’t want to write even though she’s finally in her dream program to do the thing she loves. Later, she and her classmates sit around talking about books.

When they keep stereotyping her and saying she’s overreacting about sexism, she goes around the circle and criticizes everyone else’s writing. She says she doesn’t want to be the only one to be honest in her writing, she wants all of them to be honest together. No one says anything.

Ray bails Adam and Jessa out of jail. Adam tells Jessa to grow up and that she’s a bad influence. He says she has been getting Hannah into bad situations and being manipulative. He says he cut her slack because of her addiction, but now that she’s sober and still being the same way, he wants to know what she’s trying to provoke. As he walks away, Jessa calls out to him, saying she really needs him to be a friend.
