“You don’t go to a show because you think someone in the band is hot. You don’t go because they always wear this cool, awesome outfit, or have the right hair. Those things are part of what makes up the whole picture of the music… but those things wouldn’t compel you to spend your hard earned money on a ticket to spend a night watching those clothes or that hair move around for a little while. Music resonates with everyone, which is why we call it the “universal language.”  - Hayley Williams

  • [Season 1]
  • Daisy: Oh, hey, Mrs. Patmore. Can I help you with the diner?
  • Mrs. Patmore: Yes, sure, Daisy.
  • Daisy: Good. Thanks, mum.
  • Everyone: [staring]
  • Daisy: Why is everyone staring at me?
  • William: You just called Mrs. Patmore “mum”. You said, “Thanks, mum.”
  • Daisy: What? No, I didn’t. I said, “Thanks, ma'am”.
  • Mrs. Patmore: Do you see me as a mother figure, Daisy?
  • Daisy: No. If anything, I see you as a “bother” figure, ‘cause you’re always bothering me.
  • Thomas: Hey, show your mother some respect.
  • Daisy: I didn’t call her mum!

I don't understand the hatred towards William. He did a lot of stupid shit, sure, but so did all of them in different ways. But he, as all of the others, learned from it and changed for the better. So why is everyone picking on him? I read your post about William being abusive, and I disagree. For example, William doesn't force her to change her view of things, she changes her mind because it is like Sana said, he can only affect her opinions if she agrees with what he says, right?

First of all, everyone is entitled to their opinion, and if you want to like William, that’s your prerogative, I’m not telling you you can’t.

Re: my post on abuse: it doesn’t actually matter if you “agree” with it. Abuse victims see themselves in Noora and see their abusers in William, and if that’s not enough proof for you I also included selections from articles written by psychology experts, people who have studied relationship dynamics and are experts in abusive relationships. It’s not a matter of opinion, and especially not if you haven’t experienced abuse yourself. It’s ridiculously disrespectful to invalidate the experiences of abuse victims. It’s not a matter of debate.

Also, people aren’t “picking on him”. People are, rightfully, critical of the place he occupies on the show and in Noora’s life. Even if you like him, you have to admit he was bad for Noora. Even if you can’t see why he’s abusive (although again, it’s not a matter of opinion), you have to see how terrified she was of him and how she compromised her morals in order to be with him. Before she met him, she was self-possessed, independent, confident; and after William she was codependent and timid.

Yeah, other characters on the show made mistakes, but none of them did anything close to what William did with Nico. He lied about him to her so that she didn’t know how manipulative he was (he called him a “psychopath” later on, he should have at least warned her about him.) He put her in a situation where she compromised her morals (drinking) and if it hadn’t been for him she wouldn’t have ended up in that situation in the first place. And when he finds out, he gets mad at Noora, forcing her to be the one to apologize even though she didn’t do anything wrong. Also, you say that William learned from his mistakes and changed for the better, but when has that ever happened? He has never so much as apologized to Noora, and the only reason he apologized to Vilde is to try to get to Noora. I’m curious as to why you think he’s changed, as I don’t see him as having changed at all?

The bottom line is that the hatred for William comes from a completely valid place; people have the right to be critical of someone who is abusive and controlling, and even if you don’t see that you should respect the experiences of the people who see their abuse reflected in the show. 

I’m so sad that julie and noorhelm are getting so much hate. It really sucks. I love this season. And everyone’s argument that this season “isn’t about sana at all and it’s basically another season two” is completely invalid (also you can fuck off) it’s Sana’s season and everything has been about her (her friendship with noora, yousef, isak and even) they’ve all been a huge part of this season. We’ve seen a lot of the balloon squad but nobody has bitched about that?
When it was noora’s season we heard all about vilde and eva because they were her best friends/were a big part of the storyline. Noora is Sanas best friend now and is obviously going to be part of this season. Get over it, sorry you don’t like William???

It’s also really different this season because sana is Muslim and obviously won’t be in a relationship on screen, because the actor is also religious. (I don’t want to say any false information about Islam because I’m not educated enough on the subject.) Julie has done a really great job with all the seasons, I think. And I’m really happy that this season has shown that even if you have relationship troubles, it can be talked out. If everyone had communicated with each other this season would be super boring. It’s about communication between friends, family, relationships, etc.
another thing, William isn’t abusive. I’m really sick of hearing people say that, he took great care of noora when she was a mess in season two and really cares about her. I don’t know what happened in London really or why he didn’t come after her. More than likely because he thought it was over and she didn’t love him. Can you really blame him for thinking that? No. His entire family has left him or is completely crazy. Why would he think that noora was any different if that’s all he’s known?
Everyone has done bad things, and William was really violent but only when someone threatened the people he cared about.
I really wish everyone would just enjoy this last season and enjoy it instead of bitch and moan about the fact that noora is happy and William is back. I don’t get why everyone hates William so much. He has his issues, I know that. I’m not stupid. But Jesus Christ he’s a fictional character. Also, everyone should stop hating on Thomas. What the fuck did he ever do? He’s a fine actor, stop with all the unnecessary shade pls.
This rant is so long but whatever.

Okaay but actually, William (sort of) standing up to his father and staying in Norway despite it meaning that he is cut off gives him a couple points in my book. I still don’t like him though

Noorhelm 💛

I don’t know why William/Thomas is getting so much hate. I love his role in the show and honestly… NOORHELM is my one true love 💛 every character has made some questionable decisions but that’s why we love them right?! So everyone should stop “hating” on William/Thomas! Please don’t do it. It’s the last season - which is sadly enough tho - and all we really want is to enjoy it 💛💛

Why is everyone attacking William NOW? What changed? You were all find with him last 2 seasons. Not maybe liking him as a person but no one was throwing this abusive bullshit around and people who ship Noorhelm were left alone and be happy about their ship/otp. So what changed? The fact that Noora might be the reason that they broke up and not William? What? I want to know because I am tired of getting messages about how abusive William is every time I post something about Noorhelm and how in my head they should get together
