Next Episode of Mood is
Told in part through the songs that she creates, Mood follows Sasha, a 25-year-old wannabe singer and rapper. She wants to be a major recording artist, but right now she's a bedroom artist: spending her days smoking weed and stalking her ex-boyfriend on Instagram, and avoiding her mum, her step-dad and sister Megan.When she is kicked out of her family home, Sasha is forced to fend for herself, sofa-surfing with local dealer Saleem, until she moves in with party girl Carly, who introduces her to the exciting world of social media influencing. But as the gap between her online presence and her dream of being a singer continues to grow, Sasha finds herself struggling to escape a world that is more complex and darker than she could have imagined.
Meet Sasha. Wannabe singer. Weed smoker. Going nowhere fast. A rowdy, 25-year-old from the East End with a bank balance of minus £77. Sasha has big dreams of being a music star but no idea how to get there.
After waking up from her pop star fantasy, Sasha is brought back down to earth: she's still living at home, her sort of ex-boyfriend Anton's been ghosting her for weeks, and she can't remember what happened last night. After a bad argument with her family, Sasha is kicked out of the family home. She has a chance meeting with Carly Visionz, a Northern 22-year-old influencer, and she's introduced to a whole new world.
Forced to fend for herself, Sasha has ended up sofa surfing at her drug dealer Saleem's flat, a million miles from the superstardom of her dreams. As Saleem's behaviour gets more erratic, Sasha needs a way out and tries to get help at the housing office. She soon realises she has very few options. With nowhere to turn, Sasha asks a favour from party girl Carly. But what is it going to cost?
Sasha thinks she's found a best friend in Carly and her life is on the up, partying and having fun but she still isn't making enough money online.
Carly says Sasha needs to drop the attitude and learn the importance of building a brand, especially if she wants to make a name for herself. Carly promises to get Sasha on the books with the elusive Giuliana who organizes exclusive events for high-net worth clients. Sasha is less than impressed when they meet social media famous Teeg Jones at a club, a YouTuber turned boxer, fresh from losing a fight. They all go back to Carly's flat where Teeg reveals his life isn't all it's cracked up to be and Sasha sees a darker side to online fame.
An ecstatic Sasha is booked for one of Giuliana's events in an exclusive five-star hotel. Initially Sasha feels like a fish out of water until she meets her Prince Charming, Josh. Performing a song for the guests, Sasha is the toast of the evening until Carly manipulates Sasha into making a decision she never thought she would. Sasha is left questioning whether this glittering world of status and money is all it seems. After the hedonistic night's events, is becoming a singer even further from her reach?
Sasha goes to visit her family in their new home and as everyone tries to paper over the cracks it's clear Sasha doesn't belong and she sings a ballad about feeling even more alone.
Sasha returns to the studio with Kobi but struggles as her old and new worlds collide, especially when Kobi reveals he knows about Sasha's online identity/work. At Abi's birthday party Sasha can't help but enjoy herself when Kobi puts her at ease, until someone from her past appears that forces her to do what she does best – run. A panicked Sasha lashes out at Kobi creating a rift between them. As Sasha dives into her new work, she meets the tech entrepreneur Kasper who offers her a new perspective. Sasha reconciles with her own sexual wants and past experiences and what that really means for her.
Sasha is living her best life as she arrives on her first girls' holiday with Carly and the squad - thousands of pounds to party with VIPs in a glamorous villa in the sun. Sasha sings about being verified and how her fame is rising. But her bubble is burst when a group of men turn up at the villa, including a rapper who knows who she is. Then things take a sinister turn as the reality of what's expected from them starts to become clear and Sasha sees Carly's true colours emerge. Sasha has crossed the line so far she doesn't know what to do, is there any way back from here?
Waking up from a nightmare in which Sasha sings in an epic gospel number in the church where she used to go as a child with her Grandma Gloria, Sasha is in a dark place as she deals with the aftermath of the villa trip. She tries to get back into her music but a hurt Kobi says he can't help her unless she believes in herself. Sasha gets a phone call that her mum is in hospital and Sasha rushes to see her. But when Sasha tries to open up, Laura says she doesn't want to bring up the past. A crisis emerges when Carly falls foul of some internet trolling and Sasha and Carly have a huge fall out. Sasha can't stay there anymore and runs to Kasper for solace but it's not the home she needs.
After Sasha's trauma overwhelms her, she turns to Melrose, who has always been there for her. Sasha finds the strength to walk away from her influencer life and goes back to Carly's to collect her things. Sasha performs an original song for the first time at Kobi's event, finding the courage to believe in herself. With everything that Sasha has learned will Sasha be ready to take over the world with her music?
