Normal People fans were left wanting more when Season 1 came to an end. So what better way to resurrect Connell and Marianne’s love story than to shoot two special episodes in honor of RTÉ’s Comic Relief in support of The Community Foundation for Ireland. DONATE NOW
While seeing Daisy Edgar-Jones and Paul Mescal back together again was probably exciting enough for fans of the show, the first episode, “Normal People Confessions,” went one better by employing a special guest star. Anyone also mourning the end of Fleabag will be delighted with Normal People‘s revival as it just so happens to feature the Hot Priest himself, played by Andrew Scott.
In the sketch, both Connell and Marianne attend confession with the Hot Priest. For her sins, Marianne confesses that she stole Connell’s chain, which is pretty understandable, tbh.
In a second sketch, Marianne and Connell’s love story flashes forward several decades to reimagine the pair as an older couple.
Sharing behind the scenes snaps from the socially-distanced filming of Normal People‘s special episodes, Mescal wrote on Instagram, “Well this happened! @daisyedgarjones and Andrew are absolute legends. In the hands of Lenny and @suziecine, what is life ❤️. Thank you to element and @emeraoshea. Please, please please donate x.”
