The quintet are collecting rubbish with Nathan still annoyed to have no super power when they see a nude man in an underpass, who scuttles off. Simon thinks it's a werewolf but it's actually Jeremy, Nathan's mother's boy-friend who, also caught in the storm, believes he is a Jack Russell dog from time to time. Whilst working at an old folks' home Nathan falls for another helper, Ruth, a pretty blonde and while they are having sex she turns into a very old lady. It turns out that she too was caught in the storm and was rejuvenated as a result but has now changed back into her elderly self and eventually dies. Someone is leaving messages on the gang's lockers, suggesting they know what happened to Tony. Could this be Shygirl 18,with whom Simon is communicating on the internet? Written by don @ minifie-1

"Misfits: Episode #1.2" (2009)
8 January 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The first episode introduced the characters and idea behind the series. Episode 2 starts to focus more on the characters and their lives. Here, the girlfriend of the gangs' probation officer is concerned with his disappearance. She takes over as their probation officer and takes them to an old people's home. Meanwhile, Nathan's mother's boyfriend is running around town naked, acting like a dog. This episode starts to look at other people that were affected by the storm. This is one of the best things about the show, as it shows that people can also get ridiculous powers. Something that has always bugged me about other superheroes is they never get uncool powers. The major point of this episode is to build a romance between Nathan and a young volunteer, Ruth. The scenes involving the pair show exactly how this show works as both comedy and drama. At the reveal, it is both horrifying for Nathan, hilarious for us, and saddening for Ruth. We feel all the emotions at once, and as the end shows us, this show and these characters have real heart.
