Storyline

A pregnant Jess, angry at Rudy's lack of commitment, hooks up with the handsome but controlling Luke, who uses his power to whisk her forward one year and present her with a baby he claims is theirs. Returning to the Community Centre she finds Finn is now a trainee supervisor and that Rudy 2 has martialled his trio of super-heroes - Helen, Karen and Sam - into crime-fighting. Unfortunately they take their brief too far and start executing petty criminals and minor offenders, leading to a showdown between them and the misfits. There are casualties on both sides but Jess then does something very clever to ensure an exciting future for herself and her friends. Written by don @ minifie-1

Disappointing Ending
11 December 2013 | by See all my reviews

Misfits has never been the same since series 2, with season 3 being my least favourite and I didn't even view series 4. However I entered series 5 with an open mind and it was rarely disappointing with a larger use of powers and I was able to get to terms with the departure of the original cast. However the build up of the entire series with the jumper that predicts the future was disappointingly carried out. A story arch reminiscent of multiple previous episodes involving the bulk of the episode occurring after time has been manipulated seems incredibly unoriginal and seems like a safety net for the writer as he can just rewind time if people are upset with the outcome. In short, the outcome of the episode has no impact on the overall canon and the ending just seems like an ordinary ending with no overall impact. The episode would have been a lot more emotional and dramatic if the events that happened in the future were non-reversible. Aside from the story, the special effects were on par with a YouTube Lego stop-motion animator and not what you would expect when the special effects in previous episodes seemed a lot better.
