I honestly feel like I need to rewatch season 2 bc I'm so frustrated with how it ended. I really did enjoy watching the first half-ish, maybe up until episode 7 or 8. Even with Victor and Benji constant fighting. I'm quite mixed bc on one hand it felt realistic you know? Couples do have struggles. And knowing their lives and traumas, it was bound to happen at some point. Past their honeymoon phase. Their summer bubble.
Benji broke up with Derek and went straight with Victor. Victor just came out and his mom gave him and Benji a hard time... On some level Benji can't understand Victor remaining hopeful about her bc he's not from the same background. Benji still has a drinking problem and hadn't talked to Victor about it bc he's ashamed which makes total sense.
I wouldn't say they have overcome their struggles in the most graceful way this season. There was some miscommunication here and there and yet again they're 16 year-olds, it's obvious why it did not go smoothly. They're human, they're flawed.
So yeah, their fighting felt realistic to me considering all of that. But at some point in the season it felt (not rlly unnecessary but kinda) too much like problems were piling up and their moments of peace were too brief. Not a second to breathe.
To be honest, I think I would have still been okay with that if it wasn't for that stupid love triangle thing. To me, Rahim could have just been Victor's gay friend. That was it. Why adding him as a love interest? It just adds more drama. Venji already have a lot on their plates rn. A lot they need to deal with and discuss. As much as I loved Rahim's character, the end felt unnecessary and wrong. And why leave us on that cliffhanger? Like are we expect to believe that Victor may choose Rahim after one great day out? It's a big no from me.

Love Victor 2x06 Semi-liveblogging
You know the drill, spoilers, bulleted thoughts. Just for myself, but it's chill if you're here
Oh uh tw, cw religious trauma, homophobia, mental illness, I guess
Lol, no one would right "Dear Victor" at the start of an ig message. Probably... I know it's just in theme with the show
Before anything he says, I hope he's pan or bi. This is just me wanting that. Okay. Time to watch. I'm so slow at watching
Okay, he's gay just closeted.
These children just dancing at work, for social media, lol okay sure that's plausible.
I have not been in that position like, the internet was more chill when i was growing up, lol
Another gay Muslim, we love to see it? Let's see how the writing is. After I watch the season I'll also look at the writers room, methinks
Oh to be a gay mentor
Never been there but, seems nice
Oh... Adrian is there for the church talk, WOOF
Also it sucks his little bro can't know he has a bf? Unless it's gonna happen now
Isa, Kids can be Gay. Anyway they write him as socially conscious, or "woke"
Isa, Come On.
Straight ppl aren't inherently innocent vs Gay ppl, I'm gonna scream
Oh no. Georgina, also that is the perfect stuck up white lady name to me? Also they're in Georgia so a little on the nose
"the girls swing raw" - lol
They would Not Open their homes to someone in that state
But they need to make it obvious she was snooping.
Okay M(to be)ILF, don't call a teen "hot"? Ew. Someone stop the writer's room from being creepy
Mia... I mean fair, she has walls up after feeling left out for so long
Isa is going to be nicer to a random gay than her son because it doesn't affect her life, that's my prediction
Oh, well I guess I'm glad Felix isn't mad.
"I will pay fifty dollars to make this stop"
This Isa speech is supposed to make Victor empathize with her?
Boohoo, you don't know everything about your kid.
My parent new I was a mystery, but they seemed surprised. Haaa...
My dad was f*cking weird tho before and sussed out I was talking to a girl like 24/7 a few months before i came out
Benji, call that sh*t out!!!
Okay, well Mia mentioned the hot thing. Yeah, ya freak
The baby wanted out of that convo, lol
Hello, Felix's family life is making me cry again
Oh... baby attachment and BF walls up parallel a bit awkward, but.... okay
This f*cking Father is talking to Victor, before he starts something can I just punch him in the face?
OH f*ck gay religious trauma, he's out
I've walked out, they were talking the f*cking slippery slope of gayness to b**stiality at my church in my college town, I was so pissed.
Oh to be brought up in a homophobic society, imagine how it is for Victor, Isa
Promises promises... better than nothing I guess
okay the dachshund joke was a good palate cleanser.
I didn't mention Felix's mom earlier but that was predictable and painful
Oh yes, gotta say it once per episode, I love Mia and want good things for her.
Woof. The system is probably not great for mental illness, but also, you'r floundering here Felix... it's... it sucks! I don't know the solution and haven't been in that situation
Yeah, so it did end...
Darn, they're making Benji the bad guy again? I guess he should have been optimistic or kept it to himself though.
This Episode is so Angsty besides Mia
Okay real crying now gosh dang it
wtf, but i guess 6th episode is a good time to hit us with this
