Misfits is a BBC series currently streaming weekly at Hulu focused around the misadventures of five super-powered ne’er-do-wells. Every episode is currently available for viewing to American audiences.
As Misfits moves in to its second series, the story starts to explore character relationships that were established in the first series. Season 2, episode 2 focuses back on Nathan and the strained relationship with his father.
Things become aggravated once again when Nathan learns he has a brother Jamie, a man with an even worse relationship with dear old dad than Nathan. The two boys start to bond over the problems with their dad, women and booze.
Meanwhile, Nathan meets another superpower at a bar while on his escapades. He meets an attractive young lady named Lily, who just happens to have freezing powers (because in her words “she’s frigid”).
Alisha gets a glimpse of Superhoodie, but doesn’t manage to get much more than a snapshot. Nathan finally reveals that Superhoodie saved him at the end of season 1 to the rest of the gang, which causes the other misfits to question his intelligence once again.
Everything comes to a head at a party where the misfits, Jamie and Lily all come together. Jamie hooks everyone up with caps of ecstasy. The misfits quickly learn that drugs and super powers don’t mix. Curtis ends up skipping in to the future, where he kisses a mysterious woman while wearing a superhero costume.
In the end the ecstasy causes a tragic event that affects Nathan, both as he learns he has another power and that he isn’t quite the wanker he thinks he is.
Next time: Curtis comes back to the forefront as we learn who our mystery woman actually is.
