Is there even a point to the group all meeting up at the Pride March any more? Apart from their burning need to see Space Station Beta’s Lulara in the flesh, the last meeting ended so badly they may not want to see each other again.
Undeterred by recent events, Andy turns up at Max’s door and insists he come downstairs to be driven to the Pride March. Max eventually complies, but within moments he has second thoughts – they’ve both come dressed exactly the same – Andy has paired his outfit with biker boots and some kind of leather leg harness.
On a mission, Andy cajoles Max into coming with him and they head to Toby’s house. Andy reveals he has not been able to get in contact with Rae, in spite of leaving several messages for her. Max isn’t really concentrating on Rae, because Andy’s erratic driving is causing Max some distress. Andy confesses to being a current participant in a clinical drug trial.
They soon discover that Toby, too, is dressed as Lulara, but he’s had his makeup and boobs professionally applied. They arrive at Fab’s to discover – perhaps unsurprisingly – that he is also Lulara, only his outfit looks like it was made by skinning a tinsel Christmas tree. And that’s not the worst of it…
But all the purple frocks in the world can’t gloss over the damage that has been done. Andy tries valiantly – and alarmingly – to get them to talk about the events and emotions that led them to this, but eventually even he admits defeat.
Is this the end? Has Rae left forever? Can the group survive? Will they even make it to the Pride March?
