Cpy paste from the Campaign Thread :)

Ok the first thing I have to say is that it's even bettr than the previous. Then I have to say that MAX PINING IS THE LAST THING I HAD IMAGINED TO SEE. Really! His intimate problems were so funny to watch, him and Luna are TOP and I hope to see more of their friendship. Back on his feelings: Thomas is amazing, he played it so well, funny (:lmao: the scene with Luna), but also sweetly, the way he for the first time feels something more than just a physichal attraction. Of course I'd prefer him having feelings for Aki only, but who knows maybe in the future :crossing_fingers: and about this I hope the feelings from Aki's side we saw in the first six episodes won't be forgotten, because I didn't like that in these first two episodes it was like they never existed and now Aki just wants to have sex with him and Audrey, but his relationship with Audrey is back with that honeymoon vibe. The two of them ghosting him and excluding him after they used him to get their couple back, isn't nice. We'll see.
Safran and Thomas and everybody have been the best at keeping this as a secret developement, because Thomas were always like "oh Max loves to experiment, he take things as they come, he enjoys the feeling" and so on and then BOOM he's the one who fall in love!
Zoya was on fire this episode! AND DAVIS, WTF! I still can't believe that! He seemed such a nice person! I felt Julien's heartbreak, I'm happy she looked for Zoya's help in the end despite everything and that she remained by her side.
I don't get why Kate and jordan decided to include more teachers in this? Don't they know that the more the worse? More people who can betray you and know the secret? I don't like that they cut Kate off, true she has feelings and often is too involved, but these new are so bad, like they don't care AT ALL.

The teachers are all a mess :facepalm: Crazy idea to let the other teachers in...

Davis reveal at the end :eek: shocking but at least Julien has Zoya's support

I really like Audrey/Julien's friendship in this episode

Yeah, I never got why they did that. In such situation the more people know the game, the worse it is, so? And also it seems they picked the worst teachers they could.

Yeah :eek: a friend of mine back then told me that it would have been more interesting if he was innocent, but anyway they played the bad guy card so well, I wouldn't have imagined him being a sexual assaulter. Fun fact: Jordan knew about it from the start, Safran asked her if she wanted to know the whole storyline in advance or not and she agreed. But the other characters didn't know.

Audrey/Julien friendship is better portrayed than the Aki/Obie one and it's too bad

Aki/Obie unfortunately we seem more told about than shown. We're told to believe they're these best friends but they don't give us the proof :shrug:. But I think they did ok in this episode with them talking. Still not portrayed well, even if Obie's reaction is understandable

airali_glo 04-11-2022 02:37 PM

Exactly! And it drives me crazy, because Eli and Evan are best friends for real, so it's not like the don't have the chemistry or hate each other in real life.

But as I said somewhere else here, this is a common problem with friendships, except for Audrey/Julien maybe, but even with them still they don't give us proof, while in real life they're all super close.

Anyway yeah, in this episode at least they talked, it wasn't nice to see Aki hurt by Obie's reaction in ep 7. Also Obie wondering if Aki had a thing for him and Aki replying no was funny and cute :lol:
