When they decided to go on a trip for the weekend I found the trio of Finn, Josh and Isi to be very random and wasn’t sure what could come out of it in ep 9 of 10. But thank god they did this.
These three are calming, soft, natural, laid back, genuine and it feels like real teenagers. Unlike the unholy trinity that always felt like a fever dream or a music video that’s only there for the aesthetic.
It does feel like growth because it does feel like Isi finally is in touch with their feelings again and can have these quieter moments because they don’t have to drown out all of their insecurities. It definitely is kinda late and I would’ve loved to switch from the unholy to the holy trinity a lot earlier, but these clips and the insta stories are so wholesome. I love it.
Seeing the culture clash between Zoe and Finns family from either of their perspectives would have been an interesting season. Like I don’t think that part of interracial dating is discussed or shown all that much and it seems to be the thing that causes conflict in their relationship. It would’ve been unique as far as representation but it also would have been unique in the framework of the skamverse by exploring the problems that can arise in an established relationship. Most seasons only follow the beginning of a relationship or the end. It would be cool to see a season on an existing couple working through their conflicts together
