  • What i thought to be the perfect series finale.

    This season finale didn't close any doors at all, in fact it opened plenty up to keep the fans excited for the next season. A lot of things happen in this episode. Anwur and Maxxie realize thanks to Anwurs dad that just because Maxxie is gay doesn't mean he is not a good person and they should remain friends, which they do. Chris finds out that the teacher he is in love with and has seen many time is actually married to a Australian bloke, who is back in town. Chris however won't give up.

    Sid on the other hand is trying to convince Cassie that he loves her, and writes a not that he plans to give to her, to convince her not to go to Scotland. However Sid forgets the note, and Tony who came past to visit Sid picks up the letter and takes it. Sid who can't find Cassie anyway runs into the rest of the Skins crew at Anwurs party. Tony who just arrives at the party finds Cassie and tells her Sid loves her and gives her the note. He then rings up Michelle and tells her that he loves her before he is hit by a bus. Very good ending to a great first season.moreless
  • Everyone

    I was incredibly skeptical about this show at first but the finale proved to everyone how great this show can really be. I mean this is as good as this show is going to get. You really have to commend the writers for this wonderful series, and seeing all these characters progress over the course of nine 45 minute episodes. Everyone had their own complex story line, and I hadn't even realized it until this episode.

    I really did not expect the ending of the episode. Tony getting hit by a bus right after he confesses his love for Michelle with Effy standing by to witness the whole thing? That was intense, and I wonder how this is going to affect Effy come season 2. I was definitely rooting for Cassie and Sid throughout the entire episode, and they finally found each other, I was so relieved, and the musical number was surprising but still great.

    Anwar's story line this season wrapped up quite nicely when his father finds out about Maxxie. The whole Chris & Angie thing sort of wraps up too but leaves things open for speculation. So we got a couple of things to look forward too next season. Can't wait for it.moreless
  • Not only a brilliant way to end the season but one of the best episodes ever.

    This was a great way to end the series .Tony finally starts realising that playing his friends off against each other has consequences as he attempts to reconcile with michelle. Sid tries to find the words(fails miserably and hilariously) to express his love for Cassie resulting in her leaving for Scotland and him locked up in a mental home(unrealistic but enjoyable). Chris finds out Angie is engaged resulting in a big brawl at Anwar's birthday. Anwar struggles to tell his strict father that Maxxie is gay which ends on a high note though.I'd have to say my highlight of the episode was Anwar's uncle-that guy was hilarious. The episode then ends with a cliffhanger leaving the audience desperate for the next season to begin while the main characters do an homage to 'Wild World'.moreless
  • Australian?

    not a bad episode, but one of the worst portrayals of an Australian that I have EVER seen (most UK and US TV does a pretty poor job with Australians, but this was just pathetic). I mean this guy was using words and terms that I've never heard of (and yes I am Australian), and in the end it was as laughable as the Simpsons go to Australia episode, but that was MEANT to be funny, this was just a wanker in a pink shirt making it up as he went along. With any luck this character will be gone by season 2.moreless
  • Oh My Gosh!!!!

    In this Episode: it's Anwar's 17th birthday and his mother throws him a party and Maxxie wont show up unless Anwar tell his parent's he's gay Meanwhile, Sid has finally sorted out his priorities and goes in search of Cassie. While he is doing so he gets locked up at the hospital and tony has to rescue him. Cassie meanwhile has left the Hospital for one more look at the town. Cassie is moving to Scotland. Chris has found out about Angie' Fiancée and goes all weird. Tony Finally realizes he loves Michelle and tells her then promptly gets by a bus.

    I loved this episode. I thought it was amazing. It was defiantly made you want more and to find out what happened to Tony. What happened to Sid and Cassie? What happened to Chris and Angie? What happened to Michelle, Maxxie, Anwar and Kenny? I know Tony wasn't a very good person but didn't he suffer enough with the Effy/Josh incident. I love the song at the end.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (3)

    • There is an inconsistency in the fact that Maxxie will not go to Anwar's birthday unless Anwar tells his family Maxxie is gay In the episode "Maxxie and Anwar", it is Anwar who rejects Maxxie as a friend because of his religion; he never mentions his family.

    • Goof: When Cassie goes round to Sid's house, the voice of the person who invites her in is clearly female and therefore most likely to be Sid's mother. However, in the episode "Sid", his mother left home and has not since returned, suggesting that either the character has returned off screen or that the writers have made a mistake.

    • As Cassie and her friend get into the taxi, a man's face can be seen reflected in the car's window.

  • QUOTES (7)

    • Sid: Ton, this is my dad's car.
      Tony: Yep. I went around to get your clothes, your dad was watching the football... I thought we could get along much faster if I nicked it.

    • Sid: Cassie, I don't care if you think you're odd, because I feel like singing when I see you and you're beautiful and I've been such a chapstick these past few weeks.

    • Maxxie: I'm gay Mr. Kharrel. I always have been.
      Mr. Kharrel: It's a fucking stupid messed up world. I've got my God. He speaks to me everyday. Somethings I just can't work out so I leave them be, okay? Even if I think they're wrong, because I know someday he'll make me understand. I've got that trust. It's called belief. I'm a lucky man.

    • Mr. Kharrel: (on his brother-in-law, the DJ) Muneer's an arsehole, a complete tosser. At least he can't grope the women up there.

    • Sid: Tony you're my best friend, but I really don't know what the fuck you're on about most of the time... do you think that matters?
      Tony: Sidney, I think on balance... it helps.

    • Tony: I think I liked it better when you didn't talk.
      Effy: Wanker.

    • Chris: Angie, are you ashamed of me?
      Angie: Course I'm fucking ashamed of you.
