Review: Skins: Jal (Episode 8)

Season 2 / Episode 8 / "Jal"
"A serious issue with a serious twist."

I've said it before and I'll say it again. You never know what to expect from Skins and this week we have a look at the serious issue of teen pregnancy. Larissa Wilson at the tender age of 19 who plays Jal gives an impressive performance. Cassie plays an almost twisted fairy god mother with her wrapped advice and guidance.

Learning this week that our beloved cast was being replaced come season three shows that they really can really let loose on the characters towards the end of the series. Chris's illness was hinted at mid way through the episode but my attention was instantly pointed back at Jal's condition.

It does have a sense of suddenness about it, we've never been given any clues about Chris's condition before. But again that's what a good twist is all about - you don't see it coming. There is also a hint of resemblance to the story. I can almost predict that Chris will die and Jal will have their child in his memory.

We're getting towards the business end of the series with two episodes left. It will be interesting to see how they wrap things up. I enjoyed this weeks episode but hope we can get back to something less depressing next week.

Looking for answers to the mystery illness?
