Beth is absolutely AWFUL at ice skating. It takes Alison three trips to the ice rink before she realises that Beth isn’t going to get better. Beth tries, she just… isn’t very good. At all. So, to make her feel better, Alison brings the whole clone club along. Because obviously someone has to be worse than Beth, right? Maybe seeing how bad everyone else is will make her feel better.
Needless to say, it’s a sight for sore eyes when the whole group walks into the rink. Delphine is clutching Cosima’s arm and whispering french into her ear while Cosima tries to hold back giggles. Kira, Oscar, and Gemma are just happy to be there, running around with skates in hand. (Helena runs behind them, much to the annoyance of Sarah who’s in charge of watching the kids, and Helena, for the day.) Rachel tries to act like she’s too cool for them, but Sarah can tell that she’s secretly very excited to ice skate for the first time since she was a little girl. Tony and Felix are mostly making fun of the other skaters in the rink and falling on their butts. Eventually, Tony gives up on skating standing up and just slides around on his stomach, Felix right behind him. Gemma and Oscar attempt to teach Kira to skate, but Kira’s just as bad as Beth is and so they end up clutching to the side and laughing at their aunts and uncles. Cosima is surprisingly good at ice skating, while Delphine spends her time hanging off the back of Cosima’s jacket and trying not to fall while Cos skates around. Sarah and Rachel hold hands while they skate, and Rachel tries not to laugh at how badly Sarah is doing. Helena holds onto the side of the rink and shivers, debating who to go and talk to until she sees a familiar face walk into the rink. (Spoiler alert: it’s Jesse) She and her boyfriend spend the rest of the time talking, falling down, laughing, and arm wrestling.
Beth isn’t anywhere near the worst skater of the group, but it doesn’t really matter anymore.
