And since I’m obsessed with Max’ eyes, and in search of his ever elusive heterochromia, I zoomed the hell out of the pics when I noticed this…
What this is exactly, I have no idea, but my hyperactive imagination told me it’s lipstick (or chocolate, or coffee, or he cut himself shaving while wearing his shirt. It could be anything really)
Could this be what Tina was trying to wipe off/hide? Maybe.
Maybe she even put it there? Well, my imagination thinks she did and is sticking to this theory because it likes it … alot … despite this probably being something else entirely that actually makes sense.
“The timing of this season is particularly poignant,” Tina Desai — who plays love-torn Indian pharmacist Kala from Mumbai — told THR. “This is something we’ve experienced as people, not just as characters, that when you actually make the attempt to get to know who someone is, we’re all the same.”
She continued, “We might be culturally different, but we all think and feel the same way. If we can just respect that difference and then get over it and be more accepting, there really isn’t any problem. The problem comes around when you resist change. That’s what the show is doing: We all get past our differences and create something really amazing.”
Her on-screen love interest, Max Riemelt — who plays German thief Wolfgang — agreed with the timely message.
“We don’t like to use labels,” he told THR. “People like to understand and categorize things in order to understand. The show gives people a hope or the possibility to see things differently and also to identify and cope with people they thought might not exist. That is the power of this show.”

“That was written a year before Trump’s election,” said Silvestre. “I completely believe the worst can bring the best of a human being and in that scene, it’s pretty clear when eight people from eight different parts of the world gather together, you can expect the best from them. The result is always better than when it comes from only one culture.”
