    Owen From "Bly Manor" Is The Internet's Newest Boyfriend

    He can haunt me any day.

    🚨Warning: There are spoilers ahead, so if you haven't finished Bly Manor, get to it! 🚨

    When you first started watching The Haunting of Bly Manor, this was probably you:

    Dimension Films

    But by the end, this was DEFINITELY you:

    And somewhere in between that roller coaster of emotions came one feeling you never expected: love. You might have fallen in love with Jamie, Dani, Rebecca, or Hannah....but many us — myself included — left that show with a new boyfriend in tow, and his name is Owen.

    Two seconds into meeting Owen, I desperately hoped he wouldn't die or turn out to be an awful human, and now that I've finished the show, I'm happy to announce that neither option came true.

    For one, the man can cook and bake. Hell, he does it for a living.

    His heart is almost as big as his mustache, and he treats the world's creepiest kids just splendidly.

    He's always got a funny pun up his sleeve.

    When he gets this puppy-dog look in his eyes, it feels like my heart is getting a warm hug.

    He took great care of his mother, and even when he unknowingly missed his final night with her, he was just making sure everyone at Bly was safe against Peter.

    Most importantly, he also showed Hannah the love and respect she deserved.

    i know, i know, dani and jamie... but can we PLEASE talk about owen and hannah

    I'm still mad they never got their Paris moment. 😭

    And let's face it, Rahul Kohli (who plays Owen) is a treat for the eyes.

    While some have referred to Owen as the "protector of lesbians," Rahul clarified that they didn't need a man for that. Bring on the pastries, bb!

    The ladies didn’t need protecting by any man, they just needed their dinner cooked on time. Owen was more than happy to oblige :) https://t.co/lqKaQAKM81

    There's a reason even the promotional image looks wet, and no it's not because of the rain.

    And if you think I'm the only one with these feelings, just look on Twitter. I'm definitely not alone:

    i want to kiss Owen from Bly Manor and also hold his hand

    can't believe that a show with literal lesbians STILL managed to make me love and care about a male character.. anyways owen sharma u have my heart

    Good morning to Owen from Haunting of Bly Manor’s mustache, and no one else.

    he doesn't need to cook me anything he's the whole meal https://t.co/Va4BjZ8Xqi

    I think it's safe to say that Owen is our collective boyfriend now, and I wouldn't have it any other way.
