Please don’t tell her

Seeing from a distance

It’s good that they gave these two characters a nice ending as it was evident from the start where this was going to lead.
Was any of this real?

I feel stupid

Simon messages Victor — “All you can do is be honest with the people you love”. When Victor gets home, he gathers the family but his parents have something to say first; the father stated the affair happened for a reason because they were off and they’ve admitted that over the years they have changed as they fell in love as teens. Their parents need to figure out if they still want to be together, so they are going to spend some time apart — they are separating temporarily. The parents then ask Victor what was he going to tell them, but as he walks out, he stops and says “Mum, Dad, I’m gay”. Those words have been meaning to burst out of him since the very start of this Hulu series and was a sensible ending.
