Last night's season finale of Girls was a little bit maddening. I wanted to be happy for Hannah and Marnie getting back together with their sig others, but they'd become such unlikable, unstable messes over the past 10 episodes, I was kind of just like, "Wait, really? Ugh." Like, Hannah basically spends the entire episode aggressively ruining her life and then is rewarded by Adam coming to rescue her from her Urban Outfitters bed like the sociopathic, rape-y alcoholic Prince Charming that he is. I was left wondering what the point of the whole season was and why I should continue watching next season (which I will, obvs).
In a way, though, it felt like everyone sort of reverted back to their normal selves, give or take a tragic haircut, some startup money, and a new penchant for making out with strangers. Click through to see how this manifested fashion-wise! Also? Spoilers. Duh.

Hopefully, braid expert Shoshanna is over her bizarre hair experimentation phase, having landed at this nice, normal French braid look, which goes perfectly with that butterfly-covered dress she's sporting. She's being really immature in this scene, and her outfit definitely reflects her reluctance to be a mature adult and patch things up with Ray, and maybe how she's trying to fly away, like a butterfly. Get it together, Shosh! Ray is the best!
Hannah's DIY Haircut
Instead of taking her medication and writing about "a friendship between college girls," Hannah decides she can make herself look like Carey Mulligan (in an Elle article about "Short N' Gorgeous" crops) with a pair of regular scissors and a little help from Laird, whom we love for telling Hannah she still looks like "her voluptuous self" and that she's "the most self-involved, presumptuous person I have ever met."
Also, now we know Lena Dunham's haircut was written into the script, or was it? She gave us a big hint back in September when she revealed her new 'do and told us, at a Rachel Antonoff presentation, "So, I am embarrassed to say because it sounds so trite, but I looked at a picture of Carey Mulligan and then just went for it, but no one is doing it better than her so why not." Oh, and The Cut has learned that Dunham is growing out her hair for season three.
Marnie and Charlie Go to Roberta's
Marnie looks like Marnie here. She's not wearing a plastic dress or a slutty Von Trapp child outfit, just a cute little sweatshirt and some bootcut Paiges, with straight, simple hair. We wonder, though, if she'll be getting a wardrobe update now that she's dating a rich guy (and if he'll be supporting her while she pursues her singing career).
Adam Is Once Again Shirtless While Hannah Is Still Wearing that Disgusting Grey T-Shirt
And all is right (or wrong?) in the world. Hannah and Adam are back together, but will they fix each other? Will Adam get back on the wagon because he's with Hannah and will Hannah's OCD disappear (and will she stop wearing that gross t-shirt) because she's with Adam? Is this good or bad? Who knows?! Until next season, we guess.
