RECAP: Misfits, Season 3, Episode 8
by Winston "Stone" Ford
All good things must come to an end, and we have now reached that of season 3. The ghost of old characters have returned in the finale to handle some unfinished business. Tony, the very first probation worker to bite the dust, returns to apologize for trying to kill the gang. Sally, who was an old love interest with Simon during his awkward phase, has returned to profess her love for him.
And finally Rachel, the brainwashing religious-nut who was killed by Nathan, denounces her faith and enjoys the pleasures of sex, drugs and alcohol.
But all the ghosts’ intentions aren’t completely genuine. Sally tries to destroy one relationship as a way of seeking revenge for the heartache and death of her boyfriend, Tony, and Rachel realizes denouncing her faith isn’t what it’s all cracked out to be. Never straying away from the norm, the ending of this episode will leave you shocked and full of mixed emotions. There are so many questions left unanswered and multiple rumors surfacing about who will and will not return for a fourth season.
Misfits has delivered one hell of a finale with much anticipation for next year. Hats off to you Misfits/E4 for another brilliant season.
