note to people complaining about subplots and supporting characters :but mostly just a rant about the neglect of Eva's character
ok so I really need to say this -
everyone hating on Julie for allowing screen time for noora’s relationship problems and vilde and magnus’s relationship dynamic like guys out of all the material we’ve got till now it’s probably a sum total of 5 minutes.
idk why you expect Sana’s season to not make room for other people’s subplots when we are the one’s who pride ourselves on the fact that we’re all patrons of a show that is realistic and in real time.
well real time doesn’t work only for the pov character it’s obviously going to move the same for everyone everyone’s life is going to have things happening in it and not just Sana’s and it is going to interfere with her own life sometimes
also sana does care about all her friends she just hides it under all that sarcasm and sternness cuz she’s such a MOMMA bear
I don’t think it fair considering the fact that Eva’s season had to make room for so many introductions and subplots, a jealous havoc wrecking so called best friend who pretty much created all the trouble that Eva got into indirectly (just because he was in emotional turmoil doesn’t make what isak did to Eva in season one ok at all)
like And SHE FORGAVE HIM FOR IT (and I’m glad for it I wouldn’t give up s3 for all the fries in the world)
and despite all the focus that Eva lost in the first season no one is complaining about the fact that we don’t get enough about her story. like ok suddenly after breaking up with her boyfriend that’s all that Eva has been reduced to? an alcohol happy party animal who has literally nothing going on in her life anymore? that is so wrong and misogynistic - just because the guy is out of her life doesn’t mean her life has none of it’s speculative 3 dimensional quality anymore? is she not her own person ? and as if for consolation we get that little bit of Eva making out with penetrator Chris in season three and cute with him at the Christmas party(and she was IMPORTANT AGAIN ONLY for the five minutes in which she was seen with a guy and had that fucked up mini romance…really¿ guys?) like hello he is the literal asshole who took advantage of Eva when she was emotionally incapacitated, he’s the reason she was slut shamed in front of the ENTIRE SCHOOL and now you’re all ok with all that and all buddy buddy with him despite being the truest fuckboy of the show
noora’s relationship and it’s problems have literally stretched for 3 seasons which can be justified since noora deserves better but so does Eva - but Eva is literally just this person in the background despite her explosive scandal in the first season, despite her being the first person to Introduce us to the world of skam, despite being the person whose house is literally the squad nest
Eva’s season was overshadowed by so many other characters’ lives and problems yet in Sana’s season we don’t want to allow that?
Evak’s season was allowed to have such great focus and justified by the fact that isak’s world is separate from the girls so ‘thats ok’
and even there we had noora’s subplot of abandonment and sana being beautifully understanding of religion and homosexuality as things which can co exist and her insight into the mentality of people who say otherwise and vilde being in love magnus and her kose group, but again Eva being left on the line when isak hides his drugs in her house (which is again NOT WHAT FRIENDS DO) and that’s it
Eva is just being made out to be this floating head who has the sole purpose of telling the group all the gossip that’s going in the outside world, falling into trouble on other people’s account and having no story or problems or subplot of her own despite being a 3 dimensional character (who had the wisdom and bravery to leave a relationship she was becoming toxically co dependent on so that she could be her own woman and discover herself) and just being portrayed as this desperate gossiping girl
who is not — which I AM NOT OKAY WITH AT ALL.
I want more Eva kicking ass on the emotional battlefield and in reality against slut shaming and also discovering the wonderful person that she is and helping vilde discover herself and teaching herself and vilde to be unashamedly themselves.
basically to summarise I think it’s only fair that since Eva’s plot had to make so much room for other characters’ subs all I’m asking for is for her to have an equal share in their plots and be more than just a friend on the sidelines what she went through was just as emotionally harrowing as what the others went through and is just as important cuz there is no yard stick comparison in these matters….
ALSO HIGHKEY WANT MORE YOUSEF AND SANA DUHH THAT TOO WAY OUT THERE IN THE SPOTLIGHT AND NOORA SORTING OUT HER LIFE AND BEING SINGLE PRINGLE BEST BUDDIES WITH EVA AND VILDE REALIZING OR MAYBE NOT AND MAKING MAGNUS HAPPY WHICH I AM ALSO OK WITH AND CHRIS BEING A LITERAL BALL OF SUNSHINE BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY MORE EVA AND SELF DISCOVERY AND BADASSERY with sana …I JUST WANT ALL MY BABBIES TO BE EQUALLY HAPPY PLS DONT LET ME BE MISUNDERSTOOD
The thing about Paradise Hotel this week being really strange is a reference to the fact that this week’s theme is SKAM. And the contestants have dressed up as SKAM characters, the girl squad were probably wondering why Paradise Hotel was copying their lives.
