It’s all come down to this. Class reaches its epic climax in a no-holds-barred grand finale. Can our heroes come together to vanquish the Shadow Kin once and for all?
Following the events of Detained and The Metaphysical Engine, our gang is divided. Tensions still run high: no one has forgiven or forgotten. Meanwhile, Miss Quill is free from the Arn and her true nature unleashed. But that’s only the start of our heroes’ problems. Without warning, Corakinus and the Shadow Kin rise once again. They’re more fearsome and ruthless than ever before. If the world is to be saved from darkness, the gang must put aside their differences and work together one last time. But can they do it before it’s too late…?
Make no mistake: this is where everything finally comes together. All of the plot threads from the preceding seven episodes converge here. There’s a lot of surprising and rewarding resolution that pieces all of the individual stories into a cohesive whole. Looking back on the series from start to finish, it’s clearly all been leading here. But just where is here? Well… you’ll have to wait and see!
As you might expect, there really isn’t a lot we can say about this one. Expect the unexpected and prepare yourself for some hugely shocking twists. This is one adventure no one will be forgetting in a hurry…
Episode 8, The Lost, will be available on BBC Three from 10am on Saturday 3rd December. Class is written by Patrick Ness and directed by Ed Bazalgette.
The gang has splintered – they are alienated and alone, unable to recover from the truths they faced in detention. Miss Quill is in hibernation, but she’s a ticking time bomb – ready for revenge when she wakes. Lost without one another, the gang must reunite when the Shadow Kin return to Earth, raging a ruthless, unrelenting war. Resolute to take April’s heart and the Cabinet of Souls, Corakinus threatens to kill all their loved ones until he has what he desires. Our heroes must fight the Shadow Kin one last time to protect the Earth, and one another, from obliteration.
