    Here's Why Eric And Adam From "Sex Education" Shouldn't Be Endgame

    Sorry, I will not be getting on board this ship.

    🚨Major spoilers ahead!!!🚨

    So, last week the second season of Sex Education FINALLY dropped on Netflix.

    Netflix

    Overall it was a great season, but I have one unpopular opinion: Adam and Eric should NOT date at allπŸ˜•.

    Netflix

    Adam bullied Eric throughout Season 1, and in the last episode of that season, they get into a fight during detention..which randomly turned into a hookup.

    Netflix

    When Season 2 starts, Adam's off at a military school his dad sent him to, while Eric gets into a relationship with this sweet new student, Rahim. (And they are the most precious thing ever!!!)

    Netflix

    But then Adam comes back, and he and Eric start going on secret late-night walks and making out and stuff πŸ™„.

    So when this relationship started again, I was immediately stressing TF out.

    Eric and Adam dating is a HORRIBLE idea, because as Otis points out in Season 2, Episode 5, Adam used to make Eric's life MISERABLE on a daily basis.

    Netflix

    So, of course, I was ecstatic in the next episode when Eric broke things off with Adam because it's definitely not healthy for Eric to date someone who terrified him for YEARS.

    However, despite this, in the last episode Adam makes a romantic public gesture and Eric takes him back and ends things with Rahim.

    So, yeah, they weren't exactly my OTP, nor were they for others:

    Spoilers for #SexEducation: I enjoyed both Adam and Eric's individual characters/stories this season but bringing them together as if they are a perfect star crossed couple was just -- no thanks.

    RAHIM DESERVED SO MUCH BETTER 😫😫😫 I BET ERIC AND ADAM'S RELATIONSHIP WILL BE SO TOXIC πŸ™„

    now that sex education is out, i just wanna say the eric/adam stuff is the worst thing about it !

    Me when Eric and Rahim went into the shop and saw Adam was there to start a dumbass love triangle with two boys that are sweet and one that is an abuser and a bully

    bout to binge sex education s2, but im praying that adam and eric dont end up together bc fuck the 'homophobic guy bullies the openly gay guy bc of their issues accepting their own sexuality' trope, its super toxic and im tired of it

    Now, I can acknowledge that Adam stopped bullying and did definitely change for the better this season.

    Netflix

    But, even so, I still don't think it's right for Eric to date someone who ever made him feel THIS unsafe daily.

    Netlix

    And that's that on that.
