"Everyone" is the eighth and final episode of Series 5 and the 45th episode overall.

This episode primarily focuses on everyone (now solidified as a group) preparing for Rich Hardbeck and Grace Violet's wedding, along with dealing with their own relationship entanglements.

Plot[1]Edit

The episode opens with Grace in her bedroom. She forges her father's signature on a marriage consent form and practises saying: "I dothe clothes for the wedding. Liv wakes up to find a joint from Matty - who is sorting out "usher shit". Franky breaks into the Levan household and sees Nick asleep after the stag. She leaves a note on Matty's bed but rushes out when she hears him come in. Matty finds the note, which reads: "My head's fucked, what is this?" Mini arrives at the house and warns Matty to stay away from Franky today. She says she is Franky's best friend and is looking out for her, and claims that Matty has made her ill. She asks him not to "fuck with her head" and Matty nods in agreement.

Grace leaves her house but is stopped by Blood, who asks where she's going. She claims that she is going to Liv's to say goodbye to everyone, and Blood reminds her to be back by 1:00 so that they can go to Mayberry's. Before she goes, Blood hands her a brooch and says it is to mark "new beginnings". It emerges that the brooch is really a tracking device. Meanwhile, Rich goes to the barber and asks for just a trim, but Alo winks at the stylist, who ends up cutting off a lot. Outside, Rich complains that he feels "violated". However, Alo and Rich are met by Nick and Matty, who have stolen a trolley of alcohol from the supermarket. They run away together as some guards chase them.

Mini, Grace and Liv are getting ready when Franky arrives with a cake and a dress. Grace and Liv go out of the room and Mini and Franky change. Mini helps Franky with her dress. She says that Franky looks amazing and reminds her that she deserves better than Matty. She takes her chin, but they hear a horn outside - the boys have arrived. When they go outside, Grace is shocked by Rich's hair and strokes it. Franky watches as Liv kisses Matty and Mini comforts her. In the van, Rich is concerned when he discovers that Alo is following a map drawn on a cereal box. Alo takes a "shortcut" but ends up crashing and the van breaks down. During the crash, Franky falls on top of Matty and he apologizes. He hands her back her note and when she looks at the back, it says: "Something I can't stop." Everyone gets out of the van and Mini asks Franky what she was doing with Matty. Franky says she doesn't know and storms off. Nick arrives with some drugs and Grace is annoyed when Franky takes some. Suddenly, Nick notices an angel gliding along behind some trees - it's strapped to a car. The drivers agree to take Grace and Rich to the church and Alo promises that he'll get everyone else there. When they have gone, he smells dung to determine the direction in which they should go. Meanwhile, Grace's parents have lunch and Blood is shocked when he looks at the GPS and sees that Grace has left Bristol. They rush off to catch her.

In the woods, Nick starts handing out some beer. Mini's froths when she opens it and she flicks it at Nick. Soon the group is having a beer fight, but Mini is annoyed to see Franky and Matty flicking beer at each other and throws a can at them. She reminds Matty of their agreement and Franky is annoyed that Mini has been talking about her behind her back. Matty gets fed up and decides to leave with Liv, saying that he'll see everyone at the church. Liv asks Franky if she wants to come, but Mini announces that Franky is staying. However, Franky decides to leave with Liv and Matty. Mini tearfully warns her that Matty just wants to "fuck you and fuck you up", but Franky replies: "Good" and catches up with them. Later, Mini worries that something bad is going to happen to Franky and she can't stop it. Alo tells her to go and find them and Mini runs off, leaving Alo and Nick together.

Meanwhile, Liv and Matty offer Franky some drugs and she reluctantly takes them. Soon, the trio are running along together hand-in-hand. They arrive at a small village and Liv goes to ask a man for directions. As she kisses him on the cheek to thank him, she steals a flask from his pocket. As they walk on, Franky spots a sign for a cheese and wine festival and breaks into a church hall to steal some alcohol for the wedding. Inside, Franky is taken by a sparkly chandelier and starts dancing underneath it as Matty plays the piano. Liv looks over sadly and walks towards Matty, whispering: "Game on" into his ear. She goes over to Franky and touches her neck, before unzipping her dress. She kisses Franky's neck and looks over at Matty, who shakes his head. Suddenly, the group hear someone else in the hall and have to run off. Elsewhere, Mini arrives in the same village and asks the man Liv stole from if he has seen her friends. However, he responds rudely, telling her to "bugger off".

In the woods, Liv holds Matty back and asks why he stopped her from kissing Franky. He reminds her that Franky isn't an experiment, but Liv explains that she thought Matty wanted it and is trying to fix their relationship. Matty insists that he wants to and loves her, but Liv is disappointed when he adds "but". She says she would do anything to make him smile but it's not enough. Matty says they should catch up with Franky, but Liv refuses. Matty points out that Franky is high and will get lost, and says Liv will always be alright. As he leaves, Liv shouts after him that Franky will always be lost. Meanwhile, Nick is annoying Alo by asking for drugs but falls over and traps his leg in a rabbit snare. As he melodramatically tells Alo to go on without him, Alo manages to free him. Nick mentions that he is a loser, but Alo replies: "You're a bit of a prick but peel away that prick and there's a good man in there." They hobble away.

Meanwhile, Grace and Rich have an uncomfortable car ride as the New Age couple who are giving them a lift speak about their marriage. They eventually arrive at the church, but the vicar reveals that they have missed their slot. However, he hints that he can fit them in in an hour and Rich hands him some money. The vicar realizes that the rest of their party has not arrived and explains that they only need two witnesses. Grace insists that everyone will turn up but Rich decides to find two back-up witnesses just in case. He spots an old couple and Grace asks if they will be witnesses for them. The couple agree.

Back in the woods, Mini bumps into Liv and asks where everyone is. Liv tells her that her "girl crush" on Franky is blatant, and Mini pretends she doesn't know what she's talking about. She asks after Matty and Liv admits that she thinks she has messed things up and he is off looking for Franky. Mini and Liv hold hands and walk off together. Elsewhere, Franky is alone in the woods when Matty sneaks up behind her and covers her eyes. He admits that he has tried to stay away from her but can't. Franky admits that she feels the same but Matty says that he can't kiss her, though he wants to. Franky asks why he is messing with her head but Matty claims that he is just as messed up as she is. He eventually covers her mouth with his hand and kisses that, but Franky moves his hand and they kiss. They eventually collapse onto the floor and start kissing. Franky looks up into the trees, but as Matty puts his hand up her dress, the trees go a funny color. Matty looks at her and asks if she is alright, but she yells at him to get off and runs away. She shoots past Mini and Liv, who are surprised to see Matty emerge with his trousers undone. Mini asks what he has done, but the trio run after Franky. She trips and falls off a cliff, but manages to hang on. Liv catches up with her and begs Franky to take her hand, apologizing. Eventually, Franky takes her hand and Liv, Mini and Matty manage to pull her up. Mini asks Franky if Matty hurt her and Matty insists that it's not what it looks like, saying Franky just lost it. Franky tearfully explains that she just wanted to feel normal.

Meanwhile, Nick and Alo are thrilled when they see a car drive past and realize they have found a road. They start trying to hitch a ride and are shocked when they see Blood drive past. They frantically try to call someone but can't get any reception. However, they manage to hitch a lift. At the church, the vicar appears and Grace and Rich are disappointed that their friends haven't arrived. Grace asks Rich why he cut his hair and Rich insists that he didn't mean it to be so short, but adds that he looks the part now. Suddenly, Nick and Alo arrive and reveal that Blood is on his way. Nick agrees to play the part of a bridesmaid for Grace. The service begins but Blood storms in and announces that Grace has to come home with him, just as the others finally arrive. Blood is furious and announces that everyone is expelled, but Nick replies that he can't do that. Blood is scornful, telling him that "the mighty have fallen", but Nick admits that he has fallen. He adds that the others caught him because they are friends. He says that it is "screwed up" in the world and they are just doing their best. Blood refuses to take part in the wedding and leaves, telling Grace's mom to come with him. Grace's mother smiles at her daughter as she leaves. When they have gone, Rich asks Grace if they are going to get married. She tells him never to cut his hair again and Rich asks if things are good with them. Grace says they are and asks if they really need to change things. Rich suggests that she takes him to be her boyfriend and she agrees.

Outside, the group are exhausted from their trek but Alo claims that he can sense merriment afoot and leads them across a field. They eventually find a marquee and Alo is thrilled. Nick kisses Matty and they all head over to join the party. Liv and Matty hang back, and Liv tells him that it's not his fault. She adds that they had a good day on the day they met and she explains that she doesn't want to mess with that memory anymore.

Later, Mini and Liv find Franky sitting outside. They joke that it is unusual for them to be sharing a peace pipe and Mini suggests that they try not to mess it up this time. Grace comes over and says that they're missing the party, so they all head inside the tent. As most of them start dancing, Franky and Matty stare at each other. Franky sends Matty a text asking if he is alright, and he replies: "If u r. Don't know what I am." Franky replies: "You're a glorious headfuck thing. Own it." He smiles and Franky goes over to hug him. The episode ends with everyone dancing together.
