Well, being as glass half empty kind of guy I feel somewhat vindicated by the lack of tangible evidence thus far. Ross’s instinct that a Randy Rimmer’s presence can be felt in the Fitzwaters Arms is yet to be proved as anything other than a hunch. The only possible explanation could be that Susan may have undergone a sex change in the afterlife which is a distinct impossibilty as far as I’m concerned. True, lead latticed window can only be found in a haunted house but the icy blasts that Ross could feel shooting up his trouser leg could be explained by the inadequate insulation provided by these very windows.
The alleged presence of a ‘Susan’ cannot be considered to be a plausible phenomenon either as after extensive research about the local area, the only Susan that I know to have visited the pub was Susan Tully (Michelle Fowler) who stopped off to do a poo when getting lost on her way to a shoot on location for Eastenders in 1986.
I wish I could share Ross’s enthusiasm for this investigation but my pessimism is born out of embarassing teenage experiences where my naive and gullible nature got the better of me. I mean, if you ever believed that you could enhance your appeal to the opposite by wearing a bumbag to a nightclub, you could surely appreciate my cautious attitude.
Anyway, that’s enough from me for now. I don’t want to give too much away from the next episode but what I can say is that things certainly turn a good deal darker……….you have been warned!
