Fleabag Season 2 continues to push the edge of the envelope with Phoebe Waller-Bridge's writing and acting being consistently perfect from episode to episode, with Episode 4 being no exception. This episode follows our protagonist along with The Priest (Andrew Scott) after their friendzoning in the episode prior. We are treated to some quality scenes from Waller-Bridge including the Quaker meeting scene (I'll never forget you Quaker Man, played by Bob Goody) and the wonderfully touching flashback sequence for the funeral of Fleabag's mother.
The episode again isn't afraid to touch on themes that are often sugarcoated-especially in the comedy industry- including death and grief, as we see the aftermath of how Fleabag dealt with the death of her best friend, Boo, and her mother. These themes come to a pinnacle in the final moments of the episode as Fleabag takes part in confession with the Priest, which provides for some superbly strong acting from Waller-Bridge. Oh and that ending? UGH. Phoebe, you tease!
This episode continues the consistently (almost) perfect run of episodes for Series 2, with Fleabag fastly growing as one of the best comedies to ever grace our screens, and frankly one of my favourite TV shows in general. I'm incredibly excited to see where this show goes next, bring on Episode 5!
