Freddie — Part 1

Rin says: …and with that, Sophy sets the tone for the entire recap. Fucking Sophia, willing to do anything and anyone for more info on Naomi.

Sophy says: She’s dedicated. I’ll give her that.



Rin says: I love the colouring in this scene, it’s amazing. And Effy shining the light at the mirror ball kind of reminds me of when she would burn stuff and just stare in amazement. The yellow light shining through the window is GUH worthy. Srsly.

You’ll notice in this recap, there are just some things ‘untouched’ because honestly.. I didn’t want to ruin the original pretty.

Sophy says: Yes. I am too reminded of how she would burn things. Things like DEVIL AND ANGEL FIGURINES. Skins? This slow hand-clap is for you.



Rin says: Freffy have their stair sex and Doug approves! ORGY ORGY ORGY! He’s so encouraging, so who are naomily to disappoint?

Sophy says: Oh Doug. All this time he’s been trying to get the kids into the spirit… poor little bear only just found how he’s been saying the word wrong! But never fear… Naomily figured it out. They’re smat like that. And also somewhat lusty.




Rin says: I love the touching of his arm, like when their arms were almost touching in Freddies ep last series. Brilliant. And I’m going to be honest and say that I love Freddies goofy smile here – he is ridiculously in love with Effy and it shows.

Although, it’s hilarious at Effys reaction to his goofy smile…down that bottle Effy, down it!!

Sophy says: Freddie’s goofy smile is love. He had so many facial expressions in this ep, I WAS SO IMPRESSED.



Rin says: I will never get over the expression on Sophias face. It’s the most ridiculous thing…surely there were other photos taken. JS.

Sophy says: OH SOPHIA. For a girl who offed herself you look pretty darn cheerful. Kudos.



Rin says: :) They’re like a gang :) :)

Sophy says: Omfg. Only Naomily would be kind enough to let a funsponge like Freds into their bicycle gang. *single tear*



Rin says: HAHA omg sophy. Anything that includes a freddie headshake has my heart, and Karens face…srsly. That mix of wonderment and wtf-ness is win.

Sophy says: BEWILDERED AWE. SHE IS IN BEWILDERED. AWE.



Rin says: Freddie catching himself in the mirror definitely has a ‘WTF I DO NEED TO CUT MY HAIR’ air about it. WTF PAPA MCLAIR. I know your wife is dead but omg, fucking a girl who also killed herself is not the way to deal with your pain.

And in your sons closet. Honestly.

Sophy says: BAHAHAH OMG. But… to be fair to Papa Freds, Sophia is surprisingly persuasive. She pretty much gets into everyone’s pants. Except Katie’s. She just said “You’re disgusting” and lolzed. Cos she’s awesome like that.



Rin says: Freddie has added another weapon to his reppetoire, the condescending point. PANDA PLEASE WEAR NORMAL CLOTHES MORE OFTEN. And like. Be in episodes more often? Not at the expense of Naomily though, js.

Sophy says: PANDAAAAA! <3 Idk Rin… Panda in normal clothes is sort of scary. It’s like… one of the signs of the apocalypse, for srs. OMG. THE END. WHAT FORESHADOWING. *fanwanks furiously*



Rin says: What, so..the rest of the skins gang don’t go to college anymore? Surely we would see them walk by in the halls… I would have been satisfied with that!!! T. Love. Love.

Sophy says: I find this T. Love business ironic, considering that this episode is loveless. I mean… loveless…less.



Rin says: As much as MJ is overused, I have to admit I loved this. Especially when WY is all srs saying ‘GOTTA BE STARTING SOMETHING’. Srsly. I died.



Rin says: Sophia. Why. Effy/Naomi haven’t even had that much interaction yet!!

Sophy says: She’s thorough. Now shh, they’re bonding.





Rin says: I love this crazy Effy. I like all the magazines and the pages and the pictures and just…collage on wall? Yes please. And I love Effys ‘DUH’ face at Freddies stupidity. HAHA.

Sophy says: OH FREDDIE. LOOK AT YOU. WITH THE FACIAL EXPRESSIONS. They’re a bit munted sometimes, but you’re on the right track. Keep on truckin’.

The cap of Effy throwing her porn-stash around is sooo magic. But having said that… a box of fannies sounds like more fun than a hiroshima collage lol. Sorry Eff.



Rin says: The lighting for this scene is so gorgeous.

Sophy says: ohmygodohmygodohmygod. Yes. The intense black and gold is just… eye-popping.



Rin says: This sequence is awesome. Every part of it. Music, editing, mopping with gloves on…ALL OF IT.

Sophy says: Agreed. Freddie should juggle more often, too. JS. He and JJ could take it on the road <3 (Cook could come too. He’d be a sword-swallower. And when they got to the circus they’d hook up with Cassie the Bearded Lady omg!!!1111



Rin says: The middle cap.. THE TSHIRT SAYS ‘THE END.’ Just saying.

Sophy says: RIN. You have a keen eye. And Skins has an awesome prop department.



Rin says: ‘Better fuck off then.’ *fucks off* ‘WHAT?!?!?!!’

Sophy says: I loved this. I loved the dialogue. I loved the acting. I loved the light. I loved.



Rin says: The future is history repeating. Clever. And findurmind.com doesn’t exist.. PLOT HOLE.



Rin says: I miss Josie spm :( I would have pucking loved to see her again, srsly. It’s okay Josie, there is always space for you and your sweater vests in my heart.

Sophy says: OH JOSIE :(( Your deleted scenes from season one own pieces of my soul. Serious.



Rin says: Freddie is such a rude dickwad for ignoring naomily. I hate him and his stupid origami. You’re half indian, not half japanese, wtf.

Sophy says: Omg. Wtf is this fuckery. They let him into their bicycle gang out of the goodness of their gay little hearts. And he won’t even let them in his episode????// Gtfo you Japanese poser =; omg =;=;



Rin says: JUST GIVE THE MAN SOME MOAR PORRIDGE. Ffs freds.

Sophy says: LOLOLOL omg Rin. So perfect.



Rin says: Freddie don’t be so upset, gawd. I can’t even believe you’re surprised you lost to a 70 year old man, you suck at everything else you do.

Sophy says: BAHAAHAHAH. One might even say that everything he does is late and inadequate. Mightn’t one.




Rin says: HAAAAAHAAHHAHAHA. Michael Scofield, welcome to Skins. I’d like to see you break out of this one.

Sophy says: OMFG. THE ODYSSEY. IT BEGINS.



Rin says: I love my leaf-pulling-out-of-hair Naomi <3 And Panda, you’re not looking ridiculous anymore. It’s somewhat unsettling.

Sophy says: Seriously. I can’t believe Naomi is pulling the leaf out of his hair after the shit he’s pulled. Girl’s a saint.



Rin says: Katie. I love you. So much. My heart fluttered at the sight of you. And then you had me at ‘I’m not mingling with GOTHS.’ Ah, her face in the top right cap? Wins at life. *hands Meg many many many trophies*





Rin says: Creepy. Effy throwing Sophia a goodbye party.

Sophy says: Well they’ve gotten close.



Rin says: OH there we go. Panda being ridiculous again.

Sophy says: LOLOLOL OMG. My favourite thing about this is her deadpan look when she slaps him. And then the squash-kiss. lol panda.



Rin says: KATIE JUST MARRY ME.

Sophy says: This needs to be an icon. *gazes adoringly*




Rin says: As if every moment of Effy onscreen until now wasn’t enough, there’s some pretty SOLID EVIDENCE HINTING AT WHAT’S TO COME… RIGHT HERE.

EFFY IS SUICIDAL.

Now I’ve told you, ok? Now you know.

Sophy says: What? That Freddie wants to bone me? *confused*



Rin says: Even after death you mock us Sophia. So cold…so so cold.

Sophy says: BAHAHAHAHAHAH JFC OMFG. EMILY’S FACE. AND HOW SHE’S ALMOST LIKE. LOOKING SIDEWAYS. AT CREEPING SOPHIA. OMFG HA. DOFIZGJ;.



Rin says: Nothing amusing here. Just loveliness. Carry on.

Sophy says: PUFFY BLANKET AND SPLIFF <3333



Rin says: FUCK! SOPHIA. JUST.. I can’t even.

Sophy says: LOLOL OMG. EFFY’S. FACE. NOW THAT WE KNOW SHE’S REALLY LOOKING AT SOPHIA, SHE SEEMS COMPLETELY SANE AND REASONABLE.



Rin says: That heart looks awfully familiar…



Rin says: They WERE in the episode.

Sophy says: hahahhh SUFFER IN YER JOCKS FREDS.



Rin says: The first cap. Cook…you have some weird shit going on. A doctor, perhaps?

Sophy says: Erm. yeah… what she said. I think… there’s only supposed to be one of them. I mean, I know you’re a busy man. But… yeah.



Rin says: Papa Freddie, “DON’T YOU POINT YOUR BREAD AT ME!!!!!!”

Sophy says: HAHAHAH THE DISGUSTED BREAD POINT. I love it.



Rin says: Freddie taking care of Effy in the bath is nice. Really nice. And I love the throwback to when Anthea bathed Effy after she crushed Katies skull with a rock.

Sophy says: YES, YES, YES. Done on purpose to link the two episodes in our minds and show the hallucinatory precedent to this whole breakdown. OH SKINS. NEVER CHANGE.

lol. Oh Toilet-Sophia. I know you think you and Eff are close now… but… No.



Rin says: I LOVE HIS GIANT HANDS COMPARED TO HER TINYNESS. I just do.

Sophy says: Freddie is a stickler for clean knees.



Rin says: I also love how we watch from outside the bathroom…like we’re getting to watch this intimate moment between two people when we really shouldn’t be.

Sophy says: Um so… that last cap… it’s impossible for me not to ship that. Physically. Impossible.



Rin says: Be brave, go out with Freds.

Sophy says: BE BRAVE :((



Rin says: And whilst I want to say that Naomily do the hand-hold better… this was pretty damn brilliant.

Sophy says: Seriously. The way he takes her hand in his and she swaps it so she’s in control. So she can let go at any moment. And he tries to shift it so he can hold onto her too omgomgomg. I love Skins for things like this. So much.



Rin says: What? It’s true.

Sophy says: RIN. THIS IS SERIOUSLY SO SPECIAL. I MEAN. IT’S JUST REALLY REALLY SPECIAL. FUCK.



Rin says: I love how sick Effy looks. And the sign. What? It’s true.



Rin says: Pretty, pretty, pretty.



Rin says: Just saying… they probably would have done it for free.

Sophy says: aw, Naomily are always up for an orgy… as long as they only screw each other which kind of defeats the purpose but oh well <3 And lol Freffy are going ass2ass, how sweet <3



Rin says: WELL. I’m not impressed with your parenting Anthea, so there.

Sophy says: lol Anthea you have failed so royally this gen. I don’t even… lol.



Rin says: The framing throughout this park scene is just incredible.. I think the prettyness of the park scene was the reason for me making more caps from Freddies episode than Katies.



Rin says: It’s all I could think about during this lying down scene. All. I. Could. Think. About.

Sophy says: Now it’s going to be all I can think about too. Thanks for ruining this scene for me. Bitch.

Also, Kaya totally rolled over and saw Edward and Bella there and that’s totally why she started crying. Cos if she’s going to be honest, she just enjoyed Twilight THAT MUCH.



Rin says: Truth? Boom.

Sophy says: The emotional art project of doom. *loves the continuity*



Rin says: HAHAHA. Perfect ophysan. Perfect. But also, the point of view from Effy is one of my favourite shots.

Sophy says: Yeah, I know I sort of ruined the awesome shot but… HORIZON-SOPHIA COULDN’T BE DENIED.



Rin says: …Effy is a bit disgusted at Freddies hallucinations.

Sophy says: He looks like JJ in that cap. Karen really does need to cut his hair.
