Misfits 4×04 In the Skin of Another


Misfits 4×04 In the Skin of Another

Misfits is a British science fiction dramedy show about a group of young offenders sentenced to work in a community service programme, where they obtain supernatural powers after a strange electrical storm. In season 4 the “Misfits” are Rudy (Joseph Gilgun), Finn (Nathan McMullen), Curtis (Nathan Stewart-Jarrett) and Jess (Karla Crome).

Finn and Rudy share a room at the community centre but Rudy’s amorous escapades cause growing tensions between them. The shy Finn is secretly in love with Jess but his clumsy attempts at flirting with her aren’t very effictive. Jess in turn is attracted to the handsome barkeeper Alex (Matt Stokoe) who Rudy believes to be gay because he turns down every girl.

Curtis watches an argument between his new girlfriend, the mysterious Lola (Lucy Gaskell), and a stranger. When he questions her about it afterwards, she confesses that the stranger was her violent ex-boyfriend Jake (Andrew Gower). She convinces Curtis to take a gun to threaten Jake so that he leaves her alone. When Curtis confronts Jake, a fight between them breaks out, and Jake is accidentally killed.

Curtis then learns that Lola is an imposter, whose freak power it is to manipulates men to turn against each other. However, the only other person, who knows Lola and who has any information about her, is Jake, the man Curtis has just killed. Curtis decides to resurrect Jake even though this will eventually turn Jake into a zombie.
