From the comfort of our beds, global lockdown has united us with epic viral television shows; Normal People being one such example.
We wept and ogled as two broken people found one another and fell in love.
Another show that made us do this (before lockdown, no less) was the phenomenal Fleabag. Specifically Season 2 (AKA the series with the hot priest).
RTÉ Does Comic Relief has raised money in support of The Community Foundation for Ireland to help those most in need as a result of Covid 19.
And in doing so, they have created the perfect television crossover.
Normal People star Connell Waldron (played by Paul Mescal) is seen in a confessional, admitting his troubles with the concept of love to Fleabag’s Priest.
With a priest that uncomfortably and unusually relates to these woes as well as appearances from Normal People’s Marianne Sheridan (played by Daisy Edgar-Jones) and Connell’s infamous silver chain, the short film is simply gold (or silver, like the chain).
Connell’s silver chain reached peak fame when an instagram account was created in its honour, amassing 185K followers.
Who would have thought that this television cross-over is exactly what the world needed to see right now?
You can watch the clip here.
Although this confirms nothing, we hope this means new seasons of Fleabag and Normal people may be in the works. (Please!)
