As a procedural note, the series never gave episodes titles, and only referred to them by the episode number of the series/season they were in. Given the way we post these, having posts that said either "Season 2, Episode 1, Season 2, Episode 1" or "Season 2, Episode 1, Episode 1" seemed weird, so I'm giving them the overall episode number as the name. It seemed like the least bad of the various bad choices.

This might be my least favorite of the series so far, as it leans so hard on the "scarily competent psycho ex" cliche. Some of that competence is helped along quite a lot by the others carrying the idiot ball; Simon neither notices that "Alisha" doesn't have the same effect on him as she has had with him (and everyone else she touches) previously, nor does he stop to think that he'd have a much easier time catching Lucy if he went invisible; Kelly's power doesn't help her find the impostor. This is mitigated somewhat by Simon solving the problem by simply talking to Lucy at the station. If the series has an archvillain so far, it seems to be "any British institution that deals with young people"; the justice system that has already ensnared the Misfits is the main problem, but whatever psychiatric institution that Simon and Lucy were/are involved with doesn't really seem to have helped them, either.

Pluses for the episode include the new social worker, and Superhoodie, although I really want to call him "Batmisfit."

I'm a huge fan of Shaun the Social Worker and his DGAF attitude.

Although... probation worker to this group is a bit like being the drummer in Spinal Tap. Two dead already.

The password has been blown.

Ick. I recall a younger female cousin at 9 or 10 crushing on an awkward male presenting me at 13 or 14.
