The Supersizers: Wartime
Note: The comparatively dull pilot got away with a normal amount of screencaps. That is...not the case here.
Era: Wartime (the 1940s)
Chef Grade: Allegra McEvedy, A++ cheffing
Best Guest: The American GIs who appear with their manners booklet in hand and a can of pineapple in their bag, and are amazing sports through a truly surreal teatime.
Best Food Moment: Sue eating a lamb chop inside a cupboard. We'll get there.
Worst Food Moment: Sue eating unseasoned, watery nettle-and-snail stew...
Equality Now!: ...while Giles has a Churchill feast underground.
Worst Thing Giles Says: Pretty sure everything he says in the Churchill bunker is dudebro nonsense, but he also draws a non-Sue naked woman to lie down next to in the Tube, and I think that takes the cake this week!
Best Sue Thing: I realized while recapping how hard these are going to be. She makes a lot of faces. Either the snails she names, or her GI makeup routine, I suppose.
Moment Giles is Most in Love with Sue: A quiet moment when she says something mildly fond and he totally loses his ability to even; this is no small feat in an episode that also features him licking a gravy stocking off her leg.
Most Random Moment: If you think the producers are not punishing Giles, you have not seen him take flights of stairs at night so he can sit on a roof in the dark and eat Spam.
ASPIC. Actually, I don't remember any! Hard to make it out of nettles, I guess.
Quote of the Week: Courtesy of an American soldier reading from a 1942 guide to the British - "The British don't know how to make a good cup of coffee. You don't know how to make a good cup of tea. It's an even swap."
