“Skins” recap (4.04): Katie F–king Fitch and Who the F–k Are You?

Inside, after Katie’s bath/makeout session with Thomas, she’s wandering around Naomi’s and she sees this chalkboard where Emily and Naomi quoted Friends about one another one time when they were in desperate, innocent love. And maybe it’s the first time Katie really does get it. Maybe it’s the first time she understands. Maybe she was jealous because of how she was losing Emily’s attention. But maybe she was also jealous because in 11 years of trying, she’d never found something as real as what Emily had with Naomi.

She goes to Emily, to hold her hand, to wrap herself around her, just to let her bleed. They’ll always stand between each other and the world. That’s what sisters do.

Later, the Fitches return home for one last meal of pizza on the kitchen floor. It’s bittersweet, and it’s wonderful. Katie finally tells her mum that she can’t have kids and Jenna realizes how selfish she’s been.

Families are wretched. And they’re perfect. They’re full of f–k ups. And they’re full of forgiveness. And no matter what, the most important thing to remember is that being a Fitch is better every day of the week than being related to the Beast and Brandy-licious.
