Editor's Note: Hey everyone! Logo has started airing Misfits again on Thursdays here in the U.S. (and they episodes are all on Hulu anyway), but we've been a little bogged down with fall premieres and unable to get these reviews posted.

A mysterious note sent via paper airplane (clever!) had our gang gathering around not-so-dead Nathan’s grave just in time for Kelly to overhear him wanking off in his coffin because he’s classy like that. Also, being buried alive probably gets really boring after ...

It didn’t work out quite as planned, but really, do these sorts of things ever go as planned on Misfits?
She started out well enough; sensing Simon’s social anxieties and insecurities, she offered him the attention and care that he so desperately craved. She cultivated a romance in a matter of days, and just in case that fell apart, she had her Shygirl18 online persona waiting in the wings. So of course, when her deception came to the surface, Simon took it about as well as any other maladjusted mutant would and accidentally bashed her head in.
