Gather round the picture tube, grab some snacks, and get ready for the Series 1 finale of Bachelor Pad..errm.. Beaver Falls. Some predictions: Barry finally ends up kissing Kimberly; A-Rab finds out about Flynn and Rachael , but takes her back anyways; and nothing happens with Bobby, Pam, Jake, the nerds, the jocks, or Lily or the HBB’s. (see last post about Beaver Falls if none of this is making sense to you). All these are pretty safe bets, the only stretch being the Barry/Kimberly hookup (which would lean the show either towards the realistic-ish Inbetweeners or the fantasyland Skins realms). So lets make an outlandish prediction shall we? Mine is that Lily and Barry hook up. A man can dream. Let’s watch the show.
Pre-title sequence starts off with BFA at the titular Beaver Falls, and they all get naked and jump into the lake at the bottom of the falls. Nice NON-HOMOEROTIC-INANYWAY way to start the last episode.
Apparently there’s a prom tonight. Go figure. Rachael is back with a boot/cast/crutches for her foot. Gotta wonder why the producers decided to gimp her for this. … Great scene with Kimberly in a swimsuit and Barry attempting to swim. He gets out of the water, dressed in a full tuxedo and very (almost American romantic comedy-esque) nicely asks her to the prom. She turns him down. Brilliant.
Nerdjock getting hazed by the jocks. They give him what is assumed to be Viagra (I like how the show assumes you know what pill it is. Those Brits love their pills) to give to Barry as retribution for him hitting on Kimberly. Lily! threatens Rachael that she knows about her and Flynn, and insinuates that she might tell A-Rab. Ahh such a bitch, I love her. Flynn and Barry have a heart-to-heart. A-Rab tries to get Rachael to come with him and drive her back to Wyoming? because he’s done a lot of thinking “while you were in hospital”. The nerds are getting ready for prom and A-Rab takes the bullet for Barry by (unknowingly) swallowing his Viagra-laced beer.
And now, Barry is wearing an astronaut suit for the prom …for some reason. At the prom, Nerdjock gets props for Barry looking the fool and A-Rab getting a boner. Jake’s with a new blonde. Kimberly and Pam have a heart-to-heart. Jake takes Barry outside is ready to kick his ass, but Kimberly comes out and saves him and takes him as a date (he’s still in the astronaut outfit). Bobby and Pam have a heart-to-heart. Nerdjock apologizes to A-Rab for causing his boner. The Nerds (minus Nerdjock…no wait he joins them) do a dance routine to Jump Around. For some reason.
Boom, Kimberly starts making out with Barry (still in the astronaut outfit). Fat Dandy proposes the Nerds go back into the Limo and drink the finest Peach Schnapps as a celebration (for dancing to Jump Around?…yep that’s a Schnapps celebration). Nerdjock gets a blonde to talk to him and wants to dance with him. (1/2 way through now, who knew this episode was going to be about Nerdjock? Huh, Go figure. I guess those of you who predicted win a prize).
Rachael tells A-Rab about Flynn. Bohring. Cut to the limo-nerds are drinking schnapps and they lock themselves in. Cut to Barry and Kimberly getting naked and hooking up. Cut to A-Rab being super pissed with a crippled Rachael chasing him. Cut to Flynn standing over the top of Beaver Falls (He’s not going to jump, is he?) Cut to Barry and Kimberly … you know. A-Rab bursts in. They go to rescue Flynn. (We’ve still got 15 minutes left.)
BFA cliff scene (Barry wearing astronaut suit again) … snore…. (“I was chuffed that you wanted to be my mates” , Ah enter a new word into the lexicon) blah blah blah, Flynn gets down, A-Rab punches him. … Next day, (Barry still wearing astronaut suit). They rescue the Nerds from the limo. Cut to field and OH MAN the hot chick from Episode 3 or 4 is back! and talking to Kimberly. Bobby makes a driveling speech about America and Camp. The Campers leave. (no mention of Lily…sigh). Flynn and Rachael say goodbye. Barry and Kimberly laugh off the previous night. Eh, I wasn’t a fan of this decision for it to be a haha 1-off drunk moment, but that’s the breaks. Meanwhile, A-Rab and Rachael are having their heart-to heart and say goodbye. British or Hollywood ending? is the running joke. Turns out Barry could swim all along. BFA drive off. Cut to … Bobby and Pam?! They end the show? …. No wait, cut to the guys driving, they make a couple sex jokes, and drive off into the distance. Very British ending.
