TV Review: Clique (Series 1, Episode 5)
Share This Article:
For the last four weeks, BBC Three's dark teenage drama Clique has left us hanging on a thread, with it's never-ending bombardment of sombre secrets and murky mysteries. In the penultimate episode of the series, the truth behind many of the show's most intriguing questions are ruefully revealed, with devastating effect. Following her shocking discovery of the game-changing video message left by former top girl Fay, Holly is in deep water. Shunned by the clique and fired from her position at Solasta, Holly has never been more alone, and the allies that she does have are questionable at best. Her reluctant roomate Elizabeth makes a bigger appearance in this episode following her complicit involvement in the discovery of the video. Though Holly is clearly (and perhaps unfairly) removed from the exceedingly sensible Elizabeth, she proves to be a welcome sight for on-edge viewers. In the increasingly dark and mistrustful world that Jess Brittain presents, Elizabeth is a nice, normal foil to Holly's more nefarious companions. In her isolation, Holly relies heavily on her lover/apparent partner in crime, Rory, who last week revealed himself to be an undercover cop, infiltraiting Solasta as part of an ongoing investigation into the bank's shady CEO Alistair McDermid. However, as with everything in this series, there is more going on than meets the eye - and it's hardly ever good.
