Great LezBritain: “Lip Service” Recap – Episode Four

 
 

Frankie
points out the obvious – that it’s pretty low of him to duck out of the
Ketamine episode and let Cat take the blame – but before he can implore
her silence anymore Cat approaches them.

Frankie tells Cat about her
recent work developments and Cat smiles at her uncharacteristic
work-like manner and questions why Frankie isn’t being her normal
boundary-crossing, flirtatious self.

They head to drink tea in a
café and Frankie scrapes her own nail into the table nail just to
animate the blatancy of her disturbed mind even more.

Cat: Frankie what’s going on?
Frankie: Nothing
Cat: Come on you’re a crap liar, come on you’re all over the place
Frankie:
Alright, you want to know what’s going on (hands her Francesca Alan’s
death certificate and then really, really dramatically) – I’m dead.

Cat
and Frankie re-run her life history then Frankie stares out the window
forlornly and Cat scratches her head and scowls over the head-f**k of it
all.

Cat: I’m just trying to make sense of it all. This (the
death certificate) and the photo album… do you think she could be your
mother – your real mother?

Sarah: What a modern-day Miss Marple Cat is.

Frankie is all over the shop and Cat tries to comfort her.

Tess
is sitting on the couch with Ed knitting, watching ‘An Afternoon with
Tom & Lou’, amazed at the amount of concealer it has taken to hide
Tom-the-Prick’s nose bruise.

While Ed indulges in the memory of
his knock-out blow, Tess looks at her internet dating candidates
expressing that they are all munters or freakshows.

Just
then a new one enters the fray. Tess seems to talk herself into
thinking this one is a bit of a looker but really she looks like she was
dragged out of a budget eighties clothes catalogue.

She hands
Ed the laptop and asks him to use his wordsmith ways to seduce her.
However, in a brave little attempt to break free from just hanging
around and yearning for Tess constantly, he says no because he has a
date with Melanie from his creative writing class.

Lee: Good for you Ed. I hope Melanie is nice.

Sarah: I hope she’s not a lesbian.
