They don't know what they're missing!
You've seen episode 5 where you are? [But just in case, I'll keep the next bit spoiler-free and mostly stick to stuff that's already in episode 4] I found Simon's backstory very poignant. He's a lot more sympathetic as a character now, particularly with his own inner conflict of loyalties being forced to the fore. It's going to be quite a finale, whatever he decides to do in the end. Any thoughts on whether his assumptions about Ren are accurate?
The allegorical side of the show is really deepening with every new episode, and I can't see any of it ending happily. With plenty of personal growth, perhaps, and maybe some healing of relationships between certain characters, but I'd put money on it all being a bloody, painful mess.
Amy and Philip continue to be an absolute delight, really exploring their humanity and what it means to love and be alive. They do seem to be mirroring Freddie and Haley in some respects, but hopefully with a happier outcome. I'm sure I'd find Amy incredibly annoying in person, but bless her, she does deserve a break. The turn her life took in E5 was pretty clearly on the cards, but it does make me wonder if it means anything more than what it is, especially with what Maxine was learning at about the same time. And ooh, that Parish Council! I want to give the whole lot of them a good slap!
Any predictions for the finale? (I'll be keeping a close eye on that village fete bunting...)
