From the moment he turns up in his Lyle & Scott cardigan and Fenchurch bow-tie, we get the understanding that he is dressed to impressed; and while at first he tries too hard, his natural charm wins Lara over.
This episode isn't without its own drama; JJ, Cook, and JJ's family all contribute in making chaos, not to mention Lara's violent ex-boyfriend Liam. But in a scene which should make anyone smile, and show that Skins isn't all drama, JJ wins back Lara with a ukulele performance of Spandau Ballet's "True".
Above all, this episode shows the true (see what I did there...) magic of Skins, and is a delightful breath of fresh air from the heavier aspects of series four.
