Misfits, friends, and contract killers - Jamie and Fran are back and ready to put on their 80s gear for a school reunion, where a vengeful assassin lies in wait.

Further details

Having killed a drug dealer (dressed as a football mascot) at the start of the episode, our killer duo take the night off and get dressed up in 80s gear to go to a school reunion. It's been thirty-two years since they last saw their classmates, so they enter with mixed emotions. Sure, they are now doing well for themselves - just look at their box-fresh Mercedes van - and Fran is particularly keen to prove herself and get some closure on the bullying she had to endure. But much as she's tempted, she can't exactly tell people she kills people for a living - and memories of an embarrassing incident continue to haunt her.

Meanwhile, Jamie has a simpler ambition at the party; to get with her teenage crush Danny French - she just has to fight off the competition first. They bump into an old classmate Kat Gaitskill, who used to be good friends with Jamie until Fran arrived at the school, and is now a successful motivational lifestyle guru. Keen to reconnect with Jamie, Kat helps her pave the way for a smooch with Danny, while Fran is left upset by former classmates gossiping about her. She confides in who she believes to be old schoolmate Robin Sharma, but who actually turns out to be a hitman sent to get retribution for the football mascot they killed.

All the teenage angst disappears as Fran and Jamie realise they have a bigger problem on their hands - a lethal assassin at an 80s themed-party bent on revenge.
