The OMG TV moments of 2022 that we will not get out of our heads
Although certainly not one of the most shocking moments of the year, Nick (Kit Connor) Outing to his mother Sarah (Olivia Colman) during the season finale of Netflix’s Heartstopper was by far one of the prettiest.
“Mom, you know Charlie is like my best friend,” Nick says of his relationship with his schoolmate, played by Joe Locke.
When Sarah immediately backs down and says that Charlie can’t come on vacation with them, Nick replies, “No, I didn’t mean to say that.” Immediately, Sarah knows they’re having a very different conversation.
“He’s my friend,” Nick says. “Charlie is my friend. I still like girls, but I also like boys. Me and Charlie we’re going out.
Sarah hugs him and says, “Oh baby, thanks for telling me. I’m sorry if I ever made you feel like you couldn’t tell me.”
