Derry Girls' Child of Prague moment had everyone reminiscing about their own statue's mishaps

What does it mean for the weather, though?

Spoilers ahead for Derry Girls ‘Ms De Brún and the Child of Prague’, S2 E2.

DERRY GIRLS ROLLED out another cracking episode last night, encapsulating the feeling we all had upon getting a new, cool teacher.

Ms De Brún, played by Derry actress Judith Roddy, nailed it as the femme fatale English teacher with a knack for camogie and eyeliner application.

Smudged and winged? Impressive, you’d have to admit.

Naturally, the girls fawned over her, particularly Erin, as she fancies herself as a bit of a writer. To quote herself, she’s not afraid to put herself out there, “to be bold, to take risks”.

When the girls are given the opportunity rewrite their, eh, questionable poetry for their new idol, they resort to some dastardly deeds to help with the creative process – raiding the Christmas cupboard. Sacrilege.

Clare: “We were just going to take a handful of chocolate money, but one thing lead to another…”

Been there.

As the girls (and James) desperately seek Ms De Brun’s approval with their camogie and makeup skills respectively, they pay Ms De Brún gaff a visit after hours for some red wine, despite “craic-killer” Clare’s protests about it being inappropriate.

And sure who should they meet on their way home? Supergrass Jenny Joyce – though Drunk Clare is well able for her.

When the girls return to school the next day, they are freaked to find Sister Michael teaching the class. Fearing the worst – Jenny ratted on them resulting in Ms De Brún’s firing – the gals hatch a plan to steal (or “kidnap”) Sister Michael’s precious Child of Prague statue, blackmailing her into reinstating the teacher.

Naturally, this plan goes awry when the statue ends up being inadvertently decapitated.

Seems to be a fairly common occurrence in Irish households, going by Twitter. 

But what does a headless Child of Prague mean for the weather? That’s the real question.
