New week, new ReMade!  Here's the blurb for this one:

New faces appear in a not-so-fun house in the sixth episode of ReMade, the 15-part serial that combines contemporary YA with classic Science Fiction to fling you headfirst into adventure.

Teddy, a teenage heart-throb and reality TV star, is used to being followed by cameras and waking up in strange beds with strange girls. But robot cameras with no operators, beds made of plastic, and girls that have no desire to be in bed with him? That he very unused to. Suddenly trapped in a weird alt-version of his own life – with a rare girl who wouldn’t even have wanted a part in his old one – the teen star seeks questions, and a way out.

So we're definitely not picking up where the previous episode left off - instead, we meet Teddy Young.  He's a reality TV star by virtue of being a teen football player with, evidently, a handsome face.  Everywhere he goes, there are cameras. Every interaction is scripted.   Still, Teddy is an interesting celebrity jock. Because  of those things that never make it onto the screen, of course.

There's a reason Teddy doesn't actually freak out when circumstances dramatically change and the world just stops making any sense. It's not a good or pleasant reason, but one he's been preparing for and accepting for many years already. In a way, he's relieved, because he always thought it'd be worse.

Of course, once he meets certain other teenagers in dirty orange jumpsuits, they might be inclined to disagree - things are bad.

Anyway, this is sort of the first part of a double episode, so the next one will continue directly from this.  Meaning Teddy is here to stay... at least for now, right? Not to forget Inez, who inexplicably finds herself in the same place as Teddy, though she is certainly not an adoring fan.  Inez seems to be wielding some serious leadership skills, and those could certainly come in handy.  May is great, but at this point, I vote Inez.
