The more I think about this season...
the more I really wish Julie had taken this opportunity to replace
Noora’s role this season with (girl) Chris.
Noora is one of my top favorite characters and I love her so much, but by giving Chris that role this season we would’ve been able to see so much more depth to Chris than her current stereotypical “fat” funny girl role. We could’ve heard about her relationship with Kasper and whether she’s moved on, how she may also feel like an “other” in their friend group because she’s not as vocal or involved, body positivity, etc.
She would’ve been so understanding and such a good listener with Sana, I truly believe that, and she could’ve been Sana’s ally in investigating these shady Pepsi Max girls.
I know she likes to party, but I feel like she’s being reduced to just another overweight funny party girl who contributes nothing more than comic relief (or silence when it comes to standing up for Sana), and we all know she’s capable of doing so much more than that.
We also know that Noora would have had plenty of screen time regardless.
Hopefully, the rest of the season gives us a bit more character development for everyone, especially Chris. My fingers are crossed.
