Again, if the title of the episode says “Effy” you know that it is probably going to be a trippy and crazy episode. But she is also the character at least in Generation 1 that tends to resolve many of the story lines. There are two scenes I want to talk about in this episode! Excited.
1. Tony and Sid’s Handshake
I really enjoy this scene because it is proof that friendships get harder with age. Sid has been dating Tony’s girlfriend. He wants to fix things, but Tony is still upset about things. Because they have known each other for such a long time they start thinking about how arguments between the two of them were always quickly resolved when they were younger. They both want to fix things, but don’t know how they can. It’s a sweet scene and they do have a great bromance.
Tony: You’d say sorry and we’d do our special high five thing and that was it. Sorted.
Sid: Yeah. Easy.
*Does High Five thing*
Sid: That didn’t work did it?
Tony: No it didn’t.
2) Sid and Cassie make up
I am a huge supporter of Sid and Cassie. I really am. So when Sid actually got up and did something about Cassie I was cheering. He went in there and he said what he needed to say. Cassie was still being scathingly cold. Chris was being cutely protective. Then they started to hotly make out. I remember thinking “YES! In the right direction. But they have tons of stuff to work out” stuff that I don’t think was ever worked out. But hopefully when he found her in New York they were able to work on those things. But this was a great scene regardless of psychological warfare that is Sid/Cassie.
“I don’t love Michelle. I never loved Michelle. I loved you…but you…you…oh god. Where were you? Dad fucking died. I needed you…and Michelle…so we had great sex for three days, and then guilty sex for the rest. So what? I don’t care. I did it. I hate you. Fine, fuck 15 year olds. Whatever. I’m sick of saying sorry. I love you. You say sorry.” - Sid
