'Sex Education' Season 2: Will heartbroken Eric and Meave become comrades in pain?
We know that Eric, unlike Meave, wears his heart on his sleeve and while the way he processes his pain may be different from her predictable explosions of anger and indifference, they might find comfort in each other.
Fans of 'Sex Education' have been waiting for the promised second season for quite sometime, but we are yet to be even hit with a trailer. While we know that the sex guru of Moordale Secondary School aka Otis (Asa Butterfield) has got his happily temporary after, we are worried about his two heartbroken friends - Meave (Emma Mackey) and Eric (Ncuti Gatwa).
As we saw towards the end of Season 1, Otis, who clearly has feelings for Meave, got back together with his girlfriend Ola (Patricia Allison), who is self-assured and honestly should not be wasting her time with the confused Otis. Unfortunately, Meave, who recently realized her own love for Otis, walked in on their kiss of reconciliation and is clearly worked up over it.
Meanwhile, Eric, who had his first sexual experience with his bully Adam (Connor Swindells), was only just starting to see a softer side to him. They were both clearly hoping that the relationship would evolve into something more tender and meaningful, but before they could explore anything along those lines, Adam's father, their principal (Alistair Petrie), decided to ship him off to a military school.
We know that Eric, unlike Meave, wears his heart on his sleeve, and while the way he processes his pain may be different from her predictable explosions of anger and potential indifference, they might find comfort in each other. Other than Aimee (Aimee Lou Wood), Meave doesn't really have any friends, and Otis is the closest she has to one - he is, after all, the only person she trusted with her abortion. Eric, on the other hand, truly has no one but Otis in his corner at the moment - despite his newly discovered fierceness.
It would not be all that surprising if Meave and Eric found their way to each other in Season 2 of 'Sex Education.' After all, their common friend may potentially be too busy with his booming business and a finally existent love-life. We can, in fact, see Eric helping with the management of the business with Meave - he can keep the accounts while Meave becomes the muscle, even as Otis continues to offer his expertise.
Netflix is yet to announce an official release date for Season 2 of 'Sex Education,' but we sure hope it is going to be sooner rather than later.
