Now: Since leaving the shy, sensitive, and heartbroken Posner behind him, Barnett has been rather busy. Recently he landed the title role in a BBC America’s adaptation of Douglas Adams’ Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency. Before that he appeared in the BBC’s critically acclaimed Twenty Twelve and Showtime’s Penny Dreadful. Unlike some other History Boys alumni, Barnett has continued to consistently ply his trade on stage – including significant stints in Richard III and Twelfth Night. Hector would be proud.
we finally finished regular show tonight and i lost my shit…. the series finale was so heartfelt and really brought the whole show together, reaching all the way back to its origins. i cried so much watching it, and i cried after it was done too. beautifully done final episode of a series that had surprising growth in its writing and its clear by the end how much everybody working on it cared about these characters theyve been with for the past 7 years.
Helena contacted the police right after she left the hospital and told them the whole story, from the beginning. She gave them her parent’s and Isis address, so they felt safe and so that the police would know where her children were in case Dyrus showed up; they always had police around the houses just to be sure. Turns out Dyrus was in fact a wanted criminal, already accused of sexual assault and robbery.
Helena asked for a Restraining Order, and everything went smoothly for a couple of months. Sometimes she would get these weird text messages and e-mails, but she just tried to forget about them.
Life for Helena was not easy. She had to start her life again, this time in Willow Creek; she felt like every man was trash and that they wanted something from her. She got some serious trust issues. Helena also got a hard time finding a job… Who would have known that in Willow Creek people were very judgmental towards people who had tattoos?
She visited her parents every once in a while, she would drive for four hours straight, from Willow Creek to Oasis Springs, after the kids were asleep. She loved hearing all the stories about the twins, but it would also break her heart.
