It was always going to end badly for Duffy (John Reynolds). The friendzone/relationship scenario always looked uncomfortable, but the realization came in the grimmest of circumstances — at a wedding. Zara (Sophia La Porta) and Craig (Brandon Mychal Smith) are tying the knot in a Love Island type ceremony, where the cameras are on them.
While Ainsley (Rebecca Rittenhouse) is adamant she will not be attending the wedding due to Kash (Nikesh Patel) ever-present in the social group, Maya (Nathalie Emmanuel) is confused. She cannot keep her mind off Kash and his persistence that there is something between them both. In episode 6, “Lights, Camera, Wedding”, she writes a letter discussing the impossible scenario of anything ever happening between them. Unfortunately, Duffy finds the letter after they broke up amicably, believing it is about him. He plans a loving speech for the wedding — he’s the best man. Gemma (Zoe Boyle) insists the letter is not about him
We may as well shoot to the wedding, which was produced and directed by the Love Chalet production team, showing the cheesiness of reality TV. The wedding opens up new and old wounds. For Fatima (Kash’s date), she realizes she has grown feelings for their chaperone (Kash’s best friend) who agreed to follow them as part of the “pre-arranged marriage” policy.
Ainsley does turn up, realizing she is being selfish and delivers a rousing speech for Craig. But the damning moment occurs when Duffy sees Maya and Kash from a distance and recognizes the letter was about someone else. He messed up his best man speech — it was a car crash. “Lights, Camera, Wedding” sees Maya’s nightmare come true when Duffy approaches her and makes it known that he knows who she truly loves. At the same time, Fatima makes Kash aware that she has feelings for his best friend, in a frank assessment.
Four Weddings and a Funeral season 1 episode 6, “Lights, Camera, Wedding” was a long time coming in the series, but it was delivered at the right time. But the question remains, now that Craig and Zara are married, how will the remaining characters find happiness in the world. There’s plenty more to be solved in a great series so far. Four Weddings and a Funeral is a resounding success for Hulu at this point.
