TV Review: Clique (Series 1, Episode 2)
Share This Article:
Following last week's shocking opener, this week's episode of Clique only poses more and more questions, as the central group of girls begin to truly live up to their eponymous title. Naive fresher Holly (Synøvve Karlsen) is struggling to reconcile the truth behind last week's morbid cliffhanger, in which she watched as the mysterious Fay (Emma Appleton) fell to her death. Increasingly suspicious that something darker is happening at the heart of Solasta Finance, this week's episode sees Holly prying further into the Clique - to moderate success. Last week's episode posed many questions and this episode hasn't done much in the way of answering those mysteries, electing instead to ratchet the suspense even further by creating brand new ones. Despite her mysterious call for help in the previous episode, Holly's best friend Georgia (Aisling Francoisi) appears just fine, looking glamorous and confident (if somewhat withheld) as she solidifies her place within the clique. We also get a closer look at the central clique and their places within the Solasta initiative - courtesy of Holly's introverted neighbour, Elizabeth - but something still feels off with the glamorous trio. Evasive and cold, the three remaining interns elicit a great amount of suspicion as they attempt to push Holly (and the audience in turn) off of the scene and out of their internal affairs.
