For the first time this season, Misfits feels really back on course, with some screen time for all the characters, movement on more than one plotline at a time, some backstory dealt with, misunderstandings between the group and more secrets to be hidden.
The weirdo of the week has an interesting power – when you get to the end of the episode, you’ll start to wonder just how much control he has had over the events you’ve just watched… and indeed, whether he’s been around for longer than we might at first believe.
Although the focus is mainly on Simon and Alisha, there’s time for Kelly’s new romance to develop (and for her to start to see the benefits of her “rocket scientist” powers). Even Rudi seems a bit less annoying this week – watch out for a great moment between him, his other self and the social worker.
Verdict: With one of the more interesting ways of presenting a fight sequence, this feels far more like the Misfits of old, and after two weeks of re-establishing the group dynamic, that’s a hell of a relief. 7/10
