When the music starts, you KNOW it’s about to go down.
It’s like they’re telling you “prepare your heart” but nothing could’ve prepared me for that. Lord, I am smitten. I am Sana. I will give that man 12 children(or 2 and adopt the rest).
But seriously, when that music changed I was like “YAAAAAS, come through Yousef!” and he did. When he passed behind her, I swear that was one of the sexiest things I have ever seen and it’s funny because I’ve seen a lot of TV sex and found it quite off-putting. But that’s honestly one of the things that I love about this show. How it turns stereotypical TV tropes on their heads or shuns them altogether.
I think a lot of people have reservations about this season because of what they perceive as “limitations” due to Sana’s religion, ie., there’s going to be none of the explosive/graphic hookups like S3, but for me they’ve done such a good job of establishing the affection that these two have for each other, the longing and dare I say intimacy because that scene was definitely intimate and all without excessive physical contact, that I don’t feel like anything’s “missing” because…it’s not. That’s masterful. And with the music in the background, a character in and of itself, it was pure perfection. It’s everything I could have asked for or wanted for Sana. That and a man who loves kids, knows how to cook and looks at her like she’s the only star in his galaxy.
And Elias coming in at the end was a nice humorous moment, especially considering that he jokingly(?) scolded Yousef for flirting with his sister. I’m of two minds about that: either he really was just teasing and it was a funny coincidence or he knows/suspects how Yousef feels and is seemingly okay with it. It’d be great if it’s the latter.
