TV Review: Clique (Series 1, Episode 3)
Share This Article:
The latest episode of Clique sees Holly (Synnove Karlsen) delving even deeper into the mysteries of the Solasta internship, with new findings adding a little more to our understanding of the job's sinister secrets. Following the events of last week's episode, Holly has found a way into the mysterious world helmed by stern lecturer Jude McDermid (Louise Brealey). The episode opens with Holly finally entering the inner sanctum of the clique, moving into the house where they all live and getting to work in the Solasta offices. However, the enviable glamour of the Solasta initiative is still plagued with secrets that we are very, very slowly being let in on. Throughout the episode, Holly's suspicions are seemingly confirmed by the ambiguous emails sent to her by James Buxton - Fay's former flame and business partner who has, for unknown reasons, gone AWOL. "Be careful," he warns, to our unknowing intrigue. Entering the fray of the clique, in which secrets are withheld and lingering within the walls, we are reminded of the superficial glamour that surrounds the girls in Solasta's initiative. Oddly baroque; stylish, yet empty, the aesthetics of the main house seem reflective of the lives these girls lead - glamourous, but vapid of anything real or personally satisfying. We also become better acquainted with the three original members of the group - Louise, Rachel and Phoebe. Louise particularly comes to the forefront of this episode, showing more of her ruthless, tacitern nature and sexuality. While more open with Holly, the girls are still withheld when it comes to speaking about Fay, despite Holly's constant prying.
