Moving on to happier things, though. This is a loveable episode because it gives us Gilbert.
How could anyone not love him? Been a ghost since 1985, still listening to the music of the time, a wannabe rebel with a big heart, who needed to fall in love and help someone out before he was able to move on? With his awkward-dancing-with-a-tree moments and his gentle just taking her hand and not pushing her, he’s so wonderful and loveable.
Elsewhere in this episode, we see Lauren rearing her annoying head. I do feel for her a fair bit in this episode. She is young as a person but she’s nothing short of a baby as a vampire and I do genuinely think she wants to straight, but she’s manipulated by Herrick’s lot and Mitchell isn’t a whole load of help to her. I adore Mitchell and I find Lauren really annoying, but I do feel for her here.
This episode also introduces to George and Nina as a couple. I had forgotten how early on in the series that happens. Nina is a fantastic character and she is very different to Annie and I love that. I love this show and I love Toby Whithouse.
