No! Don’t do it, Lena Dunham! Girls will be worse for it! Do not lower that axe!
If Lena Dunham has to kill a character on Girls it would be Soshanna. I find this devastating, because I think Soshanna is the heart of the entire show, and, without realizing it, the most grown-up of any of them. The one who has the best understanding, at least, of what it means to be a grown up (i.e., that yes, her 33 year old boyfriend should have interests and a place to live). However, Dunham told Garage Magazine that:
“I think about it all the time. I don’t want to kill Jessa [Jemima Kirke] off because it’s too obvious. She seems like the person who’s going to drive off a cliff or contract a horrible, life-threatening disease through bad behavior — or she’s going to eat something weird and get something strange. The implications of Marnie [Allison Williams] dying would be too insane for Hannah [Dunham’s character, who is best friends with Marnie]. Which only leaves the option of Shoshanna [Mamet].”
Well, stop thinking about that all the time, Lena Dunham. I watch this show like a nervous mother to make sure Soshanna is okay, now. So, do not do that, please. Please? Promise? Okay, great.
