Girls spoiler: new photos of Lena Dunham on set reveal major plot twist

This article contains spoilers about the upcoming sixth season of Girls. You’ve been warned.

If you’re anything like us, you’re probably still reeling from the events of the season five finale of Girls.

Jessa (Jemima Kirke) and Adam (Adam Driver) got into a huge fight about Hannah Horvath, which led to them smashing up almost everything in their apartment.

Unbeknownst to them, however, Hannah (Lena Dunham), who had turned up with a small fruit basket as a peace offering, had heard the entire thing from their doorstep… but, in a moment of huge emotional maturity, she simply walked away and refused to become involved in their drama.

Which, as it turns out, was a very good decision – particularly as she has a LOT of drama of her own to look forward to when the sixth season returns.

That’s right; new photographs have been leaked of Lena Dunham filming on the Girls set in New York.

Which would, usually, be kind of exciting but not major news; after all, how much can you really tell about a plotline from a mere picture?

This time, however, things are different.

Yup, you guessed it; it looks as if Hannah might be pregnant.

Is that a baby bump we spy?

Wearing a fake baby bump under her dungarees, the actress was also seen sharing scenes with Adam Driver – and their characters looked far happier together than we’d expect, considering that he left Hannah for her best friend, Jessa.

Spotted holding hands and kissing, Adam even appeared to be putting his hand on his ex’s belly at one point, again supporting theories that Hannah is pregnant for the show’s final series.

Does this mean that they’re (drum roll, please) back together? Again?

And, if so, does this mean that Adam is the father of Hannah’s baby?

Hannah Horvath certainly seems to have a baby bump, doesn't she?

Hmm… it’s all very intriguing. Although, if we were going to hazard a guess ourselves, we’d say that Hannah Horvath would never get back together with someone just because she was pregnant; the feminist icon is more than capable of raising a baby alone.

Perhaps she and Adam’s apparent reconciliation has nothing to do with the pregnancy. Or, just maybe, they’re working on being “just friends” in light of their changed circumstances.

Then again, while all evidence seems to point towards a Girls baby, it’s worth pointing out that this could all be a bait-and-switch storyline, or, as some fans have suggested, a strange dream sequence.

It could even be a flash-forward scene for the sixth season’s finale episode, giving us a glimpse into the futures of all our favourite characters.

After all, this will be the last ever season of the show.

Speaking at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, Lena Dunham explained why she and the Girls team felt it was right to end the HBO series on its sixth season.

"We were always conscious, especially because the show has been at times such a lightning rod, of overstaying our welcome," she said.

"We've been very blessed to have the experience of people continuing to engage in the show in a really kind of rabid way after four — heading into five — years. We wanted to make sure we kept the momentum alive and didn't allow it to soften over time."

She added: “It just felt as though, if we were to continue on, it wouldn't be about what it was originally about. It would be the equivalent of moving them to California, only California is them getting married and having kids and stuff like that.

“It just feels like at this point, it makes sense for us to wrap their stories up."

Those comments – particularly that “having kids” line - seem a little at odds with the leaked set pictures, but, again, it could all be part of a clever ruse to keep viewers off the scent.

We guess we’ll just have to wait for the next season to hit our screens next spring to find out what’s actually going on.
