This is also an interesting episode because it shows Hannah can’t go back. Actual sex with someone who is interested in her is no longer enough. Better to reign in hell than serve in Heaven- she couldn’t work as a florist in Michigan, she would require a professional job. However that kind of stupid job that she and her friends have is fine in NY.
I think the show is demonstrating exactly what conservative and game bloggers have been writing about for the past several years. Hannah’s sluttiness and sleeping around with alphas (even a guy like Adam who’s not a real alpha, but rather a beta masquerading as an alpha based on advice from PUA resources) has ruined her for a relationship with a nice-guy beta-male provider like the pharmacist.
However I’m going to backtrack a little on the issue of New York City vs. Lansing Michigan. It’s understandable why a smart and elite-college-educated person of either sex wouldn’t want to work in a dead-end retail job at a florist. Doing crappy internships in New York City is more likely to eventually lead a quality professional career. Although “more likely” doesn’t mean “definitely,” and it doesn’t even mean “more likely than not,” it just means that it’s more likely to go somewhere than working retail in Lansing Michigan. People in their twenties, God bless them, tend to be overly optimistic about these things, but unfortunately it also explains why they are willing to go into massive debt to get a law degree from a non-Top-14 law school.
