This episode was just fantastic and shows how much 'Skins' has grown as a program.
The episode focused mostly on Sid and his family. Last season I didn't like his dad, Mark, at all, but this episode made me change my mind as we really got to see how much Mark has had to face with his own horrible father, and how close the bond is between Sid and Mark. There were some very touching parenting moments in this ep and you could see that Mark truly does care for Sid.
I also liked Sid's mum, a character who managed both comedy and emotion. It was sad that she wasn't there for Sid in the later half of this episode though.
The two minutes we had of Cassie were great. She has been sorely lacking this season. The ending was quite typical but hopefully it means we'll get more Cassie soon.
Sketch was great in her new role as the cynical girlfriend of Anwar. She pulled-off her one-liners brilliantly.
Mark's death was so sudden and unexpected I couldn't quite believe it.
