You will not believe who showed up on the March 27 episode of ‘Girls!’ A character from the past returned and threw Marnie for a loop. Warning: spoilers ahead!
Well, Girls certainly knows how to shock fans! The last person anyone expected to show back up on the hit HBO show made a surprise appearance on the March 27 episode. Get ready for your jaw to drop to the floor!
Okay, so if you haven’t watched the new episode of Girls, come back later! I’m about to discuss that MAJOR return! This is your last warning! Here it goes…
CHARLIE RETURNED! Yes, Marnie’s former love is back! After Marnie and Desi got into a fight, Marnie went for a walk in a sketchy part of town. She ran into Charlie, and he looked nearly unrecognizable! His long, curly hair was gone. His sexy scruff was now a full-grown beard. Charlie’s appearance definitely shocked Marnie, and the fans, too!
But first, why did Charlie leave Marnie high and dry in season three? Before we get into that Girls storyline, Christopher Abbott reportedly decided to leave the show due to “creative differences” with Lena Dunham.
Apparently, Charlie’s app company crumbled and his dad committed suicide. After that, he was lost. Wow. Charlie’s really been through a lot.
Despite the distance that had grown between Charlie and Marnie over the years, it was like no time had past. They went on a fun adventure in NYC, and everything was great until they got mugged at gunpoint. Marnie and Charlie hooked up afterwards.
While Charlie was asleep, Marnie found a needle in his pocket. While he claimed he had diabetes, this was a wake-up call for Marnie. She returned to her apartment with Desi and told him she didn’t want to be married to him anymore. OMG!
I am so glad they brought Charlie back. His storyline with Marnie was left unfinished. I’ll always hold out hope that these two will find their way back to each other, but if this is all I get, I’m happy with it.
