Whilst Paolo,Saffy's sexy but self-centred boyfriend,proposes to her, Eddy and Patsy go on a skiing holiday where they row over the lack of glamorous facilities and their constant dependency on each other - even in a past life they were conjoined twins in a circus. Eddy goes skiing and has a near death experience but God appears to her and tells her that it is not yet her time. Meanwhile Mother goes to the airport with a sign to welcome her visiting friends -'It's Me,Dears' - but in her confusion gets mistaken for a terrorist and is rescued by Bo in a burkha.

In the scene where Saffron is ironing Paolo's shirt, after she's done he puts it on while talking to her and buttons incorrectly. You can see it in one shot that the buttons are not properly lined up, then in another shot right after it's fixed. See more »

Val d'Isere off-season, a meeting with God, and Saffy gets engaged!
9 April 2007 | by (Lancaster, Pennsylvania) – See all my reviews

"The Last Shout, Part 1" finds Eddy and Patsy planning a return trip to France. This time the destination is Val d'Isere. Eddy is having a busy day, but she finds some time to go to the gym. Patsy tags along with bottle. Saffy has a boyfriend named Paolo (Tom Hollander.) Paolo is a rich boy with a shady personality, and he's quite oppressive with Saffron. She seems to overlook this, and accepts his proposal for marriage. Justin comes over to visit with Saffy, and soon Eddy and Patsy arrive back home. Patsy is thrilled that Saffy is getting married, but Eddy's world briefly crashes with the announcement. She pulls herself together, and the two continue with their ski resort trip. Eddy tries snowboarding but has a few mishaps. Patsy relaxes for a while, but she gets her workout when she meets a handsome, blonde ski instructor. The ladies go in search of celebrities and good food in the evening. They get cozy in a restaurant while having fondue, but there doesn't seem to be any celebrities around. Back at home, Mrs. M. shows up with Bo. Bo is together with Marshall again, and the two have had some strange events happen as they attempt to get their film project made. Eddy and Patsy head back to the chalet, and they end up having an argument which leaves the room trashed! Eddy and Patsy next attempt to go skiing, but Patsy somehow gets left behind on the ski lift. Eddy's ski adventure goes beyond the bounds of the ski trails, and she has a near death experience when she almost goes over a high mountain cliff. During her near death experience, she goes to heaven and meets God (Marianne Faithful, who would return to play God in "Donkey.") They discuss designers and fashions as an angel (Marcella Detroit) sings nearby. Gods informs Eddy it's not her time to be there, and sends Eddy back to her earthly life. Eddy manages to make her way back to the resort, but Patsy's still stuck on the ski lift.
