Skins Rewind: Who’s That Creeper In The Window?

After a five-month hiatus and just in time for summer, Skins Rewind is back. I left off after recapping the Series 2 premiere episode, “Maxxie and Tony“, which caught us up to the gang’s whereabouts after Tony’s horrific bus accident.┬áBut the real drama of Series 2 kicks off in episode two thanks to the presence of new character, Lucy aka Sketch, who disrupts the already fractured inner circle.

This first season episode introduces us to Effy’s enigmatic ways long before she went nuts in season 4. Looking back on it now, this episode says one thing: Effy Stonem is here and we better get used to her.

Seriously. Get used to Effy now. She causes problems for three more seasons.
