Okay here’s the deal about my reaction to the new clip. I know some people are stressing that Isak was wrong for texting Even back “Stop texting me” and some people say he had every right. But here’s the thing, he was neither right nor wrong in his approach.
He doesn’t understand the specifics and the in’s and out’s of bipolar disorder(he was doing research before he texted) And he’s heartbroken. This was his first true, intense love and he’s under the impression it was all one-sided(thanks Sonja….Bitch)
So he isn’t ready to talk. I know some people are like Even can take that wrong, and he can, that’s an absolute possibility! Right now Even is feeling every feeling and emotion, and not only that, the emotions are raw and heightened. Basically his emotions are on speed right now.
He can take that rejection super hard and crash and do something harmful to himself because of it. But again Isak is neither right nor wrong because he doesn’t know this.
Another thing to take away from the clip is the lyrics to Cherry Wine by Nas. Now I don’t know if you guys are huge rap fans but Nas is one of my favorite rappers alive. His music always has a powerful message and the meanings are usually straight forward.
Now Cherry Wine is about finding someone. Not just any someone, a soulmate! Here’s a sample of the lyrics “I want someone who like the champagne I like. My a-alike, someone to talk me off the bridge any day or night”
That is the first line and don’t tell me that doesn’t hold a deep meaning for Even and the reason he picked that song. Isak is his life savior and soulmate and he’s letting him know in his own way, what they had was and is real! Now excuse me while I cry because that clip was deep.
Remember their love is real….
P.S. here’s the lines Even texted Isak“Strong communicator, vagabond, I gallivant around the equator
And that would get me off the radar
It’s so intense, I’m on my Lilo and Stitch
Pour my Pino Grigio with some lime what is this?
An immaculate version of me and my baby
With all respect cause you the only one that gets me”
