  • Who would've thought a bigger dose of Katie is what I needed to finally like her.

    The writers are really working on getting their disliked characters some love. First Cooke, and now Katie. I really wasn't expecting her to get her own episode to be honest. It just seemed that with all the hate Katie was getting last season, it just wouldn't happen; but it did. Come to think of it, it's quite odd Naomi and Pandora didn't get one instead of her. But I'm glad she did. The writers gave us a chance to see another side of Katie. A brighter side that finally shined through a dark period of her life.

    Speaking of periods, Katie gets told she'll never have hers' again, meaning she's unable concieve. Her day worsens when she finds out her family's losing their house due to unpaid bills her dad was reponsible for, forcing the Fitches to stay at Naomi's house, where they witness Emily's wild breakdown.

    Deffinately unexpected. The party scene where Katie punched that girl was just fantastic, and the fact that Britney Spears was playing the background made me love it even more.

    A great addition to a well thoughtout season.moreless
  • A different side to Katie - I loved it.

    I loved this episode so much. Katie has always been the 'horrible' one of the group so it was great to see a new side to her. I was glad that they didn't get Katie pregnant because the news that she can't have children made her more human. You felt sorry for her.

    Even the way she comforted James through her parents fighting showed that she has a heart. Loved the hen night when she punched that idiot of a bridesmaid. Also the Effy/Katie conversation was really interesting, will they become friends?

    I predicted that they'd have to run to Naomi for help but it was such a good idea. Loved when Katie said they'd lost their house and Naomi replied with 'How careless'. Emily showed her wild/horrible side and it was pretty intense. Loved that scene though and can't wait to see what happens between Emily and Naomi.

    I actually really liked the bath scene with Thomas and Katie. Once again she showed more nice qualities and a friendship was formed, it was a nice but funny scene. What I loved about this one was that it ended happily. Katie hugging and comforting Emily was a brilliant moment.

    The ending itself was great because we got an emotional scene between Katie and her mum and then the Fitch family seemed to be restored. After the previous three not so happy endings it was really good that it ended that way.

    I probably haven't mentioned half the things I loved about this episode. Katie was developed hugely and we got loads of the Fitch family. Next week has me really intrigued...I thought it was gonna be a happy one but apparently Freddie and Effy aren't so happy. Can't wait already...moreless
  • used to hate her and think she was the worst one now possibly my fave character!

    used to hate her now possibly my fave character! definatley my favorite episode of the series so far :) good for katies character aswell i think she will be a lot more liked after this one. also great line from katie at the hen do "i'm katie f***ing fitch, who the f*** are you" and then when her and emily put their differences aside at the end and the whole family go back to the house, a great part to the episode. She has pizzzzazz! sad about her doctors trip though but i think that showed the vulnerable katie that we so rarely get to see. overall was a good one.moreless
  • I'm Katie f***ing Fitch, who the f**k are you?

    Episode 4...was awesome. I really enjoyed it. It was nice to see more of Katie, because I've never thought she got much screen time but I'm glad she got an episode to herself.

    I liked pretty much everything about the episode, it was moving seeing her reacting to bad news, and having to be there for her familt.

    A pleasant surprise was Effy, actually being nice to her...I like the 'new' Effy, some people may not but I think it's nice to see her grow up.

    Katie is NOT somebody to mess with either, that punch was brilliant! haha. So it's fair to say, I like season 4 now that I've seen more... :)moreless
