The third season of Girls wraps up on March 23, but before that happens, creator Lena Dunham will make her debut as a Saturday Night Live host on this weekend's episode. (With musical guest: The National!) NBC released a promo reel for the episode—costarring the hilarious Kate McKinnon, one of the show's breakout stars from the past few years—and we can't help being totally charmed by it. Highlights: a recitation of goals for the week (Dunham's include "wear comfortable shoes" and "two cups of coffee max per day"); McKinnon angling for a role on Girls as "a person who killed Hannah and lived as her"; and the pair celebrating their roles as two young feminists with a kicky dance. Check out the promo below.
