Episode 19: Left Behind

Summary

Homer gets Flanders a job as a human resources supervisor at the plant. However, he soon learns that no good deed goes unpunished when his neighbour starts to insist on carpools and demands more from his work performance. Matters reach a head when Flanders suggests Mr Burns donate to charities - instead of the other way around. Meanwhile, Marge feels as though their marriage has lost its spark

Review

Gethin is a nice lad, part of a fractured family, but he is close to his sister and his niece. He has a handful of good mates and not much of a job – he’s on a zero-hours contract in a fast food takeaway shop.

But the fates conspire to send Gethin (Sion Daniel Young, who is excellent) completely off the rails as the fragile threads that hold his life together unravel and snap, leading to violence and tragedy.

The Left Behind looks at the rise of far-right extremism in the poorer parts of Britain through the prism of Gethin, a young man looking for easy targets who blames outsiders for robbing him of everything worthwhile.
