.Another Monday, another Fleabag and another stellar review. Fleabag continues to excel with its tragicomedy stance, giving us a further insight into dealing with grief along with added sex and sins.
Phoebe Waller-Bridge gives us a fantastic penultimate episode that leads up to the grand finale of the (unfortunate) wedding between Fleabag's father and stepmother-to-be. With preperations fully underway, Waller-Bridge brings in her first twist of the episode as the Priest pulls out (pun?) of the wedding last minute- much to the blasphemous disapproval of Godmother, Olivia Colman. The reasoning for the Priest's (Andrew Scott) sudden exit from the wedding comes after last weeks sacriligious snog in the confession booth involving a whole lot of kneeling and a whole lot of leading on.
This episode ramps up the relationship between Fleabag and the Priest, again, giving us a wonderful final act sequence between Fleabag, The Priest and her sex-on-the-side (SOTS?) Hot Misogynist portrayed by Ray Fearon. But before that, we get an equally enjoyable- albeit for very different reasons- scene between Fleabag and Clare in which the latter has a rather awkward incident that leaves her looking like a piece of stationery. And we also get a fabulous scene between our protagonist and Martin, Brett Gelman, who gives off some serious early Jack Nicholson vibes that are frankly really impressive. The way he acts towards Fleabag is truly disturbing and PWB really understands the progression her characters have taken.
Going back to that final scene, our protagonist finally gets the moment she has been waiting for, and its well deserved, rather than the arguably misjudged and selfish snog that happened the episode prior. Fleabag is incredible, I don't want it to end. See you next week for the grand finale, I hear wedding bells...
