Sorry, but at this point I don’t want Noora to be the person Sana opens up to. I love Noora so much and I’m proud of her for dropping the bus to show Sana she’s on her side, she’s with her no matter what. But we have so many possibilities now that can make Sana’s storyline better: Chris, Elias, her mom, Jamilla, Yousef, Isak and Even.
I believe opening up to her mom or Jamilla could add so much representation, because even if they aren’t exactly like Sana it would be amazing to see strong female muslim characters on screen together.
Elias is also a very good option, I think. We’ve seen how supportive he always is and how he tries to protect her and make her feel good (“if you’re sad, I’m sad”). Also, the conversation they had in the swings left me with so many feelings, and I want them back like that.
The amazing Chris. She’s the one who introduced everybody to Sana, and it would be so interesting to see her softest and caring side, since we don’t know much about her. She’d be an amazing listener to her, I know that. (I’d take Eva too, tbh).
Yousef. Yeah, this is probably my romantic side trying to sabotage me. But he’s such a good guy, and we already know how much he cares (about Sana and in general). He pays attention, he listens, and that’s exactly what Sana needs right now.
I’d take Isak and Even, too. I know there’s been drama about the fandom caring more about Evak than about Sana, but putting that away they are friends and they care, so I’d be so happy too.
