I was re-watching episode 10
I still fucking love this episode for many reasons but something that struck me today.
When Yuri starts to feel anxious when he’s alone in the hotel room he says out loud “Victor help me”
Having anxiety being able to ask a specific person to help you, even in your own head and even if they aren’t in the room, is a big deal.
Your go to state is often “I’m a burden” or that you’re more of a failure because you want help and you worry your need will mean you are rejected in some way.
Here Yuri is mentally aware he can go to Victor for help and be accepted.
I love that detail about Yuri and his relationship with Victor. It shows how much trust he has in him.
