With only one class a week, Hannah finds herself doing a lot of nothing in her free time, while a visiting Elijah (Andrew Rannells) has become the social butterfly of Iowa. Ray (Alex Karpovsky) gives Marnie a wake-up call about Desi's true intentions before their meeting with a record label. Shoshanna aces, then blows, a job interview. Adam unwittingly gets drawn into Jessa's chaotic web after an AA meeting. At a poets' party in Iowa, Hannah rants about the undue expectations put on women writers, and takes things too far in critiquing her classmates.
Written by Sarah Heyward; directed by Jesse Peretz.
