Sana + Feeling Alone
The power of the last clip, “Dear Sana”, was palpable.
Here you have the clip of the first ever bus meeting in season one. Sana is sitting alone, with everyone across from her, on her opposing side. She feels like every one is against her.
then there is the clip of the bus meeting in season 4. yet again, it’s her facing everyone else. her vs. the other girls. One could argue it looks like Noora and Eva are sitting by her side, but it’s clear that the intention of this shot was to isolate Sana. she feels like every one is against her.
The last from this tragic trilogy, her facing the entire group of pepsi max girls, yet again facing towards them, while they are judging her. she’s alone, feeling like everyone is against her…
But then, in “Dear Sana”, we see her standing there with her friends, not facing each other, but her side by side with her main girl squad, and all her other friends surrounding her. But they aren’t facing each other. They girls are sticking by her side, and everyone else is behind her. Not because she’s ignoring them, but because they have her back. They are her foundation, a solid wall backing her from now on.
