iCarly Reboot Episode 4 Recap
The fourth episode is titled ‘iGot Your Back.’ Carly is back in the game as her web series goes viral once again. But a part of her renewed fame is to make red carpet appearances. So, she reaches out to Harper for help. They go through lengthy discussions and trials before deciding that Carly should wear an old dress from her teenage years for the sake of old times. In case you are wondering where you have seen that dress before, let’s put your doubts to rest. It is the same dress Carly wears in the final episode of the original show.
Much to their shock, the dress does not fit Carly any longer and begins to rip while she attends the event. Harper comes to her rescue, but Carly cannot shake off the doubt that her best friend might not truly understand what she needs. This leads her to question her friendship with Harper. In the episode, we get a glimpse of their history together, and fortunately, the duo makes up. After all, Harper is Carly’s “BFSS” or “Best Friend Since Sam.”
While Carly continues to fail at finding a romantic partner, Freddie also fails miserably. Spencer decides to help Freddie, but his approach does not prove helpful. Spencer sets him up with Ramona, who charges money to date Freddie, unbeknownst to him. What makes it worse is that this is Freddie’s first dating experience since his divorce. Naturally, this misadventure comes to an end quite soon.
