Heartstopper season 1 ended with Nick finally telling his mom that he is gay. The second season took place just a day after that incident. Charlie was happy to know that Nick came out to his mother. It was good for Charlie as that would be that he no longer would be lonely in the relationship. What Ben did to Charlie was unacceptable and Nick came into his life as a blessing. At least he isn't ashamed of Charlie and treats him nicely.
Charlie is delighted to be with Nick, who is an amazing boyfriend. In the second season's early stages, we witnessed several romantic moments between the two, including hugs and kisses. However, something peculiar occurred throughout the eight 35 to 40-minute-long episodes. Despite being at ease confessing his true self to his loved ones and friends, Nick seemed dissatisfied with the outcomes.
The audience can occasionally see the sadness in both Nick's and Charlie's eyes. There are some reasons behind that which might include them not being completely dedicated to each other. Though it might be hard to believe, it seems like it. All is not well in the Heartstopper world as in the last episode they saw that Nick and Charlie hesitate to confess their love to each other.
Elle and Tao had a hard time while coming into a relationship. They both were reluctant at first but as Elle drifted away Tao realized that she is the one for him. Losing someone can mess with you like Tap lost his dad. After his dad was gone, he learned one thing and that was to value people. Tao made every effort to stop Elle from drifting away. When in the later episodes coming into a relationship, we can say that they'll be each other's happily ever after.
The visuals of Heartstopper have always been very cute. Right from season 1, every relationship has been shown beautifully. Not only the good phases but the bad phases were also included which makes it a great show. It's good to watch couples together and happy. I just wish that in the third season, Nick and Charlie can open up about the problems.
Sara and Darcy, a lesbian couple, have been given ample screen time in Heartstopper. This is a positive aspect of the show as all the couples are given equal importance and their love stories are portrayed realistically. Nick and Charlie are not the only couples highlighted, but every other couple is also shown with their ups and downs. This is crucial in making the story believable. A love story cannot be just about happiness, but also about the struggles and challenges faced by the couples.
Every relationship shown in Heartstopper has its importance and you can learn a few things from them. Sara and Darcy teach us to be with one another till the end. Nick and Charlie teach us how sometimes it can be difficult to accept your love in front of everyone else, but what matters, in the end, is that you stay true to yourself. Elle and Tao teach us that it's sometimes good to wait for great things to happen.
Another very important thing about Heartstopper is how they show Charlie to be still affected by the bully. As you know Charlie was bullied in season 1 after people came to know that he is gay. The things that happened to him have left a scar on him. Nick sees the impact bullying still has on Charlie, and he tries his best to comfort Charlie. Things won't get better until Charlie can share those things himself.
Nick and Charlie's conversation was incredibly touching. It serves as a reminder that we should never inflict permanent emotional harm on others. This theme is emphasized in Heartstopper season 2 and is of great significance. Typically, when a character is bullied in a series, we don't witness the lasting impact it has on them.
This season of Heartstopper is even more romantic and emotionally intense than before. It's important to not misunderstand the emotions expressed in the show, as they hold significant meaning. I highly recommend watching season 2, but for those who haven't seen season 1, it's best to start there.
