Still one of the best TV clips in history. The drama of it all, so flawless
okay so i usually stay away from all fandom drama but I just wrote this in the tags of a post and then decided to just post it alone so here goes.
Here’s my (not so controversial) hot take: Omar doesn’t deserve all this fucking hate.
Did he fuck up? Yes. Yes, he did. Does he deserve to be persecuted the way he is? Fuck no.
He’s a teenager who was thrown into a shit position. He barely gets together with a boy and gets thrown out by his parents because he wants to be with said boy and then moves in with him thinking they will have this perfect life together.
And suddenly he finds himself dealing with a boyfriend who has cancer. A boyfriend who treated him like shit practically the minute Omar moved in and long before he got sick. And who still treated him like shit after he got sick, when they had supposedly resolved their issues.
Ander was also really shitty about Omar exploring his sexuality and trying to act more like who he wanted to be as opposed to who the world wanted him to be. At a time when Omar was putting on a brave face and trying to be proud as he dabbled to find his own identity, Ander was distant, did not offer support and even vented about Omar behind his back instead of talking to him.
Instead Ander continued to push him way and take all his anger and frustration out on him, making Omar feel like he was being rejected all over again. (Don’t even try to tell me Omar doesn’t have rejection issues - his father threw him out the door ffs).
Like listen. I love Ander with my whole fucking heart so this isn’t at all me taking sides, but it’s just about seeing the nuances of their relationship and the way they’re navigating it, and for real Ander has a real fucked up way of showing Omar that he loves him. Sure, he chased Omar around and immediately took him in when Omar had nowhere to go, but in their day-to-day interactions he’s standoffish at best and downright mean at worst.
And yes, I know Ander was dealing with alot in s2 and was sick in s3, but when it comes down to it, when someone pushes you away and hurts you over and over and over again, you kind of forget why they’re doing what they’re doing and all you can focus on is your pain. It’s selfish but it’s also human nature, just like Ander was selfish with dealing with his own pain by pushing Omar away.
So I understand why Omar was willing to cheat when someone else gave him the attention he was so craving from his own boyfriend. He’d been trying to get Ander to look at him that way and kiss him like that for so long, and there was this random guy who just appeared in this life looking like he actually gave a fuck about him, making him feel all the things he craved from Ander. Sure, it wasn’t the person he loved, but it felt good to be wanted and feel that someone actually wanted to be with him physically. It was the kind of attention he was craving in that moment so he took it. And then he took it again. And again. And then it was less about someone wanting him and more about finding an escape from the terrifying thought that he was going to lose Ander.
And then he lost Ander because Ander told him he was with someone. Sure, we all know Ander was being self-sacrificing and looking out for Omar’s happiness, but Omar didn’t know that. Omar was pushed away and away and away and then taken back in only to be pushed away farther than ever before until he believed he had nothing to grasp onto.
And then to justify his actions to himself, he tried to convince himself that maybe he was feeling more for Malick than he actually was. And then the NYC plan came about and it started to feel more and more like maybe this was the better choice. It seemed like the stars were aligning and Ander didn’t want him anyway so he had no reason to stay.
But then he found out that Ander was lying, that Ander wanted still but was trying to push him away, and the rejection issues kicked in again, so he tried to fight the urge to go back to him. If Ander wanted him gone, he would be gone.
But in the end he couldn’t go through with it. It was always Ander and only Ander and no amount of time or distance and no one could change that.
So yes, Omar fucked up. But Ander fucked up too. They’re learning how to be together and that means they will hurt each other sometimes, but they’ll also be there for each other when it matters.
I don’t like that they never addressed Omar cheating either, but given that Omar mentioned he was going to New York with Malick, I feel like there’s an underlying understanding here that they both know that Omar had a thing with Malick. I don’t know, maybe not, it’s not always easy to tell with this show. Maybe that’ll come up in season 4. But then again I hope not because I don’t want anymore drama for them in season 4. Just let them be happy together and have the conflict be external with them dealing with whatever comes their way as a unit like they should.
Also more scenes with them and Rebeka now that it’s established that she’s friends with both of them?
Tagging @waroftheposes because this poor soul has been leading the Omar Shanaa defense squad since the season aired.
Sidenote, not here for any drama, I just wanted to air this out because it’s been mulling around my head since I watched season 3, so if you’re gonna come into my askbox and be a dick about anything, imma straight up ignore it.
the (only) friendship I stan.
me around people I don’t know.
pov: arón’s your boyfriend 🥺.
anyway i’m so glad that in s3 omar didn’t cheat on ander while he was sick with cancer because that would be completely out of character and the writers can’t be THAT dumb i’m so glad they were solid all season i’m so glad they didn’t fuck up that storyline i’m so glad after everything they’ve been through together they were by each other’s side all season i’m so gla
spaces between us keep getting deeper.
that’s it, that’s the post.
you ever look at a character and know then and there that you’re gonna protect them no matter what?
khalil is the best character in black lightning(.)
