The Hockey Girls (Netflix) Season 1, Episode 9 recap: "Anna & German" | RSC


“Anna & German” sees romance blossom in tight spaces as the kids relax a little too much for their own good.

This recap of The Hockey Girls Season 1, Episode 9, “Anna & German”, contains spoilers. You can check out our spoiler-free season review by clicking these words, and our thoughts on the previous episode by clicking these ones.

In light of her new presidential campaign, Terrats (Nora Navas) has big plans for the club in The Hockey Girls Episode 9: Rosa as treasurer, and Anna (Iria del Río) as the sports coordinator. And in further good news, Anna finds out that Joana, the girl she injured in Lisbon, is now out of her coma.

Pela (Xúlio Abonjo), being the local cool parent, allows all the kids to chill out at his farmhouse while he’s gigging. It isn’t long until Emma (Dèlia Brufau) arrives, apparently invited by Putxi (Guillermo Lasheras) despite not really being on speaking terms with anyone else, and there’s a bit of tension — until the pot cookies come out, anyway. Everyone indulges, including buttoned-up Laila (Yasmina Drissi), both against her better judgment and at the nasty urging of Emma.

Pela, though, has his gig canceled, and because he doesn’t want to go home and interrupt the kids he instead turns up at Enric’s (Josep Linuesa) house, where he’s welcomed with open arms — much to Sílvia’s (Mireia Aixalà) annoyance. She is getting increasingly aggravated by her baby daddy’s casual involvement in her life, and eventually kicks off with him and throws him out.

Anna and Germán (Marc Clotet) find themselves trapped in a storage cupboard in The Hockey Girls Episode 9, which is all the better for… let’s call it bonding. Anna explains that Joana was her rival at the club in Lisbon, and during a heated argument, she pushed her. A bumped head and a coma followed. The bad news is that now she’s awake, the club wants to sue Anna. But in the meantime, she has sex with Germán in the cupboard.

At the farmhouse, the girls and boys are all high as kites playing truth or dare, which leads to an ill-advised hook-up between Lore (Mireia Oriol) and Flor (Asia Ortega). Gina (Claudia Riera) gets suspicious when she sees a tell-tale hickey on Lore’s neck, but she talks her way out of it. Lluc (Guim Puig) has a badly swollen p***s from sleeping around, which he reveals to Berta (Natàlia Barrientos), leading to Òscar (Nil Cardoner) driving him to the hospital.

Laila, not a seasoned pothead, has a bad reaction to the weed in “Anna & German”, but a returning Pela is able to get her settled and relaxed. Youssef (Hamid Krim), though, blames her relationship with Nil and forbids them from spending any more time together.

The final moments of The Hockey Girls Episode 9 reveal a tragedy. Sílvia, having told Enric they need some space after Terrats revealed his self-serving sports center plans, is informed by Rosa that Pela has been in an accident. And no, he’s not okay.
