Marla can't wait for her 18th but there's also someone else on her mind. Toni and Mack are on the warpath to find out where Olive and Stephen are...but will they get distracted from their search?

    Great episode! Some proper drama (poor Stephen) and recognition of Jay as a character at last! But I thought the convo between Marla & Catherine was a bit cheesy..

  • Comment number 2.

    OMG! stephen know's now, but i hope it wont change anything between olive and stephen cause i really glad there finially back together again! :D
    cant wait for tomoro's episode.

  • Comment number 3.

    OMG Stephen has found out about Mack and Toni.
    Aww Marla looking at them photos of her and Jay i would love for him to turn up at her party don't get me wrong i like Marla and Elliot i just like Marla and Jay better. Toni going mad lol. Can't wait to see Marla's party.
    Can't wait for tommorow episode.

    Omg poor stephen he's devostated. Yet I have to admit seeing olive smile has made my day she hasn't looked that happy in FOREVER! But who can blame her it's stephen after all :P

  • Comment number 5.

    Toni seems just as insecure as Olive when it comes to boyfriends, to be honest.

  • Comment number 6.

    WOW! 4 and a half mins of utter amazement!!
    Marla still thinking of Jay...maybe he might come back for her 18th?? Or she will reach out to him??
    Toni and Mack nooooo i would of thought Toni learnt from her mistakes the last time- and Stephen finding out as well i just can't wait to see what happens!!!
    Olive and Stephen were so cute at the beginning as well :D

    I wonder why Catherine couldn't spend the whole day with Marla on her birthday...maybe she's going to see Cam? ;)

  • Comment number 7.

    Maybe she's going to Radio 1?

  • Comment number 8.

    If Jay has to come back Marla should stay with Elliot, I definately prefer him to Jay.

  • Comment number 9.

    Catherine told olive she had her radio 1 interview the next day so therefore she can't spend it with Marla.

    I really hope stephen starts to cause hell in the houshold now and ruin Marla's Birthday. That would be Hilario! I'd love to see Marla and stephen Scrap! Marla would easy take him tho.

  • Comment number 10.

    Oh yeah my bad, i re-watched it, and she says she's got her interview. hehe :P

  • Comment number 11.

    Monthebiff, I agree with you! It would be awesome to see Marla go against Stephen! We haven't really seen that since the series one episode 'Platform 9', and that was before we really knew the characters properly anyway. :)

  • Comment number 12.

    OhMyGossh! Jay's face in Series 2! So more foreshadowing? Hope he extensively explains where the heck he's been! So Marla's still thinking about him while she's with Elliot, huh? I think she likes Jay a lot lot more than Elliot. Remember when an episode started with the girls' dreams and Marla dreamt of Jay's words? Although she later got together with Elliot. Thing is, I don't think she would be with Elliot if not for her mum. Remember, she said something to the effect of "you're going to be 18 soon and you don't have a boyfriend you don't want people to think there's something wrong with you.." I think she really does like Elliot but I think she would've waited on Jay if not for the desperation to please her mother. Something tells me Marla's 18th will be verrry interesting! :D

    Honestly, I was rolling my eyes at Olive this ep. I hope she knows she can only blame herself when it all goes downhill. Alex may not be the most reliable guy but she should take heed... even though he's just trying to tell her Stephen's a bad guy for his own benefit.

    So Mack & Toni, eh? I guess his spells the end for Rory & Toni after losing Olive at the trip. Mack & Toni are like a reflection of Olive and Stephen: she says she hates him sometimes and he treats her like dirt but she keeps going back, it appears. Except Olive is a bit more innocent whilst Toni knows she's messing with a married man. And know Stephen knows. Didn't Marla say something about Stephen being a bit more unstable than he seemed? At least when their mum disappeared that time. I'd tell everyone on the mews to clear a space 'cause I think Stephen may cause a lot of trouble after seeing what he saw. *Salivates in anticipation*

    Sorry for the essay but I was really impressive episode today!
    Whoo - can't wait for tomorrow

  • Comment number 13.

    I love Stephen. That is all. I never ever ever ever ever want him to go to oxford. Please have him run over and put in a coma. Then post a daily 5 minute video of his face to check up on him ;)

  • Comment number 14.

    Black_Vine, I loved reading your essay! Some more, please! (No, I promise you I'm not even being sarcastic, I really like seeing what people have to say about The Cut in that much detail - makes a change) ;)

  • Comment number 15.

    Black_Vine - I agree with everything you have just said there. Especially the bit about Toni being like Olive and Stephen being like Mack, Some famous poet said that children are a reflection of their parent but I'm sure it means the same for guardians because of the whole environment element.

    I hope Stephen kicks off at Marla's party it would just allow the whole thing to go out and for olive to know that earlier on in the series Toni was lying to her.

  • Comment number 16.

    Finally Jay is coming back he is by far the best character in the series! Although the others are good also! The suspense to see Jay is killing me though!x

  • Comment number 17.

    Hay Guys, was that not by far the most exciting and jaw-dropping episode after wibledom?! Whoa, sooo I guess that Toni and Mac are still into each other... Atually I don`t mind Stephen with Olive-weird for me-I think he loves her and she loves him. Stephen seemed more light hearted and little joke here and there. Maybe Olive will finally be the making of him. Did any of you catch the text off Olive?-I think it said,'Hurry Back'. Hmmm... I really pity Mr Andrews, he really likes Toni and she still-half half-likes Mac! Can`t wait for the next episode. Luvin` it:)) Oh, by the way, I am doing a survey of the most popular character in the cut. So if each of you could put the name of your fav character down the bottom I would be grateful. It can include those who have left and even the in-the-background-characters, thx.

  • Comment number 18.

    To teamtommyolive - Stephen!

  • Comment number 19.

    Teamtommyolive - Yes the text said hurry back! :) It is super suprising that you want olive to be with stephen considering your name haha :D

  • Comment number 20.




  • Comment number 21.

    Marla and Jay- I miss them! I really hope he comes back soon.
    I love Stephen. I have a feeling he's gonna go mad when he realises Marla already knows about Toni and Mack.

  • Comment number 22.

    @MusicGirl320 Done :)

    I wondered how long it would've taken Stephen to find out. Why does he get treated like a baby? He's older, is he not?

  • Comment number 23.

    yeah he's older but he's like daddy and mummy's prince isn't he. Like marla's more independant because she doesn't want much to do with them.

    Elenilove thanks

  • Comment number 24.

    Teamtommyolive - My favourite character on the cut is Olive, look her style and how she is so sweet and innocent and shy.
    I really think Olive and Stephen are so cute together and they are just so suited for each other, so long as Stephen treats her right, and no more lies!
    I'm hoping for a happy ending for them two :D

    Musicgirl320 I signed as well :D It says only 250 signatures so far though, we need moreeeeee!

  • Comment number 25.

    btw i just made a complaint to the BBC myself, through their website about the closure of BBC switch, i asked for a reply and it said i should expect to hear within the next 10 days, so hopefully they will get back to me and see what they have to say.

  • Comment number 26.

    I have just sent an email to about 4 different area's of the BBC. It's now ridiculous I have read through a load of reports and they have stated that teenagers are happy with BBC Switch but they think that it sounds like the writers are trying to be "too cool" and that people are watching channel 4 instead but channel 4 doesn't have a website that teenagers can go to 24/7 do they? NO! They are closing down the one thing that makes them relate to us and the one thing that is there advertising point to all teenagers. It's stupid they should realise that if they advertised BBC Switch better then they may get more people I only found this about 6 months ago when IPLAYER suggested that I watched it. None of my friends or family knew about it because it's not advertised enough.

    We all need to send an email or a letter or something in because if they get enough complaints then they might listen and say that they will give it some more time to consider.

  • Comment number 27.



    read that it says something about BBC Blast being closed but BBC Switch still being in desision making!!! Anyone understand it completely because I don't :s

  • Comment number 28.

    @MusicGirl320 EXACTLY! i'm so annoyed at them. They really should've advertised it better. I stumbled across the cut last saturday changing the channel. The only other time I've heard of it was when I saw a poster of tommy in a magazine, but that's all. This really is a disappointment. Why aren't there any tv ads? I was definitely shocked to find there was no facebook page. The cut producers should hire us as a street team, or something ;p

  • Comment number 29.

    Ok Guys, Basicly from what I have gathered from that News paper artical the BBC got pressurised from people writing complaints which means we all have to write complaints to stop the BBC Switch from closing but emphisising that we love the cut.
    I've done mine and so's kitty mitty luck to the rest of you ask everyone you know to write a letter of complaint:)

  • Comment number 30.


    another petition sorry guys but so many out there we need to sign them all! :)

  • Comment number 31.

    There is a facebook page Elenilove its right here :


    Well on the news they said they were saving BBC radio 6 but nothing else, i think the decision has already been made for BBC switch as that newspaper article is dated 5th July, and even Vicki has confirmed since then the closure of BBC switch in december.

  • Comment number 32.

    I've already sent an email of complaint. Should I send a letter too? I think as a last resort we should ask E4 to buy the Cut..

  • Comment number 33.

    Kittymitty it says that it's not definate on the article they said it was definate for bbc blast but not bbc switch

  • Comment number 34.

    I think it is definite ya know, this post was by Vicki after the date of that article:

    why post confirmation of the closure if its still under discussion?
    It looks to me like its pretty decided it will close in december.

  • Comment number 35.

    Teamtommyolive - My favourite character is the sharp, intelligent and rather attractive Fin.

    MusicGirl320 - will defo sign the petitions. I think the presenters do try to be too cool - The Cut is the only thing I watch on BBC Switch, I find the 5:19 Show incredibly cheesy, and on the Auditions Special versions of The Cut, the way Vicki and Chris presented them was utterly cringeable and not really professional. (Sorry, Vicki!)

    Elenilove - Actually there is a Facebook page, in fact there a quite a few, but there's one official one. Think there's a link to it on this site actually, but anyway: https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Cut/124096634268659?ref=ts

    Yes, I think the decision has been made, but it's not unheard of for the BBC to change their minds. It's rare, but it does happen. I am thinking of the sitcom Not Going Out, which was axed in March last year, but was given a reprieve later.

  • Comment number 36.

    If bbc switch did close down and E4 brought the cut it would be pretty cool but still it wouldn't be the same.
    i've signed both the petitions and hopefully by the help of everyone maybe bbc switch can be saved {at least there's hope}

  • Comment number 37.

    E4 would overproduce The Cut like it did with Skins i reckon!

  • Comment number 38.

    Plus I don't want The Cut to be interrupted with commercials every few minutes!

  • Comment number 39.

    Thanks for the essay appreciation folks! *blush*
    39 comments? And some new usernames
    I think the Cut's getting more popular :D
