  • A significant improvement on the first episode of the season!

    So, following the season's premiere, I really wasn't holding out for much, which was why I was pleasantly surprised by this episode.

    There were some great moments, and some brilliant lines. The twists were great too, with the subject of expulsion.

    It seems TPTB don't want us to know yet whether Jimmi really does love his familiy, or whether he's just in monetary debt and so back for the money alone. Well, this will certainly prove interesting (though they made the point about his debt a little too often - yeah, we all know he's in financial trouble already!)

    A great bit of humour involving the fair, and the bitchy organiser. Summer's intervention was pretty much obvious, and her new plans predictable, but still fun.

    Glad to see everyone is happy, though how much longer will it really last?

    And of course, the end, Ryan is the usual fool and get's himself expelled...Interesting to see the previews for next week focus on Marissa's expulsion not Ryan's though.
