Since it might be the series finale so I just wanna talk about how wonderful the last episode was.
It felt so real. Like the movie Weekend (2011).
Now Patrick learn so much about Kevin. And how he realized that moving in with him was probably an impulse decision because of his relationship with his mother and the fact that she's divorcing his dad.
And the big fight scene was amazing, it just felt real.
For those who don't know, Patrick discover that Kevin has a Grindr profile. And then after successfully convince Patrick that it means nothing, he drop the bomb that they should consider an open relationship. Patrick's friends, who know Patrick to his very core, already saying "oh they're over" after knowing about Kevin's Grindr. And I love it that Kevin throw it back to his face, saying he's not that innocent either, "what about when you're still going out with Richie, but you let me fuck you, in the office, without a condom". No one is "the good" and "the bad" here. (Patrick was still with Richie when he hook up with Kevin. then they broke up for other reasons. and then Kevin left his boyfriend for Patrick)
Now that the "Prince Kevin" fantasy is gone, and realizing that romantic relationships are usually messy, life is not black and white, Patrick learn a good lesson.
And the scene where he found the necklace that Richie gave him, in a box written "Valuables". Is just so good. The underlying message of that scene. And then when Patrick meet Ritchie at the end of the episode, and asked for a haircut. Ritchie said, "are you ready?". Patrick said, "I'm ready".
In season 1 finale, Ritchie broke up with Patrick, "saying I'm not gonna let myself fall in love with you if you're not ready". Patrick, who just before that, let Kevin fuck him in the office for the first time, just couldn't say anything and just nodded. The tears was for Ritchie.
Now, in season 2, the tears was for Kevin. And Patrick, saying now, "I'm ready!" was just so poetic. Not necessarily ready for Ritchie. It's just for a haircut. But somehow it just felt like he's also saying he's ready to take a new chapter with knowing more about what he want in his life.
