Ship(s): Kala and Wolfie, Riley and Will, Lito and Hernando, Nomi and Amanita
Note: This post contains spoilers for all aired episodes of Sense8, including and especially, last night's premiere of the Christmas Special.
Despite having me crying on many occassions, there was so much joy in this episode. Capheus, as usual, brings laughter and happiness, even in the bleak slums of Nairobi; Kala sees snow for the first time in a delightful scene with Wolfie—more on that later; the Sensates birthday; Riley and Will ice skating; cluster orgies; and Christmas plans for all the cluster make this a pretty perfect special. Especially after more than a year without any Sense8 (due to some world traveling needed for filming, and a recasting), this was just what I needed for my holiday break.
But, this is Sense8 and each moment of joy is filled with one of action and angst. What's the holiday season without a few tears and anger!
