you know what i still can’t wrap my brain around? the fact that there were probably hundreds of posts of people saying they recognized themselves in even, or recognized people they knew in even, that they saw what was never really confirmed until episode 8.
just, the subtlety and carefulness and deftness to which henrik takes his role, the way he portrays even’s mental illness in a way that is both so incredibly obvious but also. not. because sometimes the signs are all there but we can’t quite put our finger on if those signs are truly what we think but the feeling is so undeniably strong so it must be? and then it is.
just… it’s amazing how well henrik has portrayed even’s character, how he has made him into a whole person, with so much intricacy and depth and beauty, not defined by his mental illness, but still affected by it because who could not be. and for everyone to have recognized it so early on, before we even really saw all the signs, it’s amazing.
