Winx Season 8: Where’s The Kiss, Rainbow?
Posted On June 22, 2019
Does the ending of “The Light of Gorgol” (Winx season 8, episode 9) feel like it’s begging for something more? A couple fans on Winx Luci e Ombre thought so:
As weird as this might sound coming from me, I wasn’t expecting Aisha and Nex to kiss when I watched that scene. But looking back on it, I agree it feels like they should have.
The setup is perfect. They’re alone, holding hands, and standing in the light of the setting sun. They’ve just returned from a dangerous adventure where Aisha almost lost him, and they’ve grown closer and are showing even more affection than usual. Aisha thanks him for being there for her, and Nex assures her he always will be.
…they stand there staring into each other’s eyes. For a split second, it looks like he moves in to kiss her, but the “camera” cuts away!
Geez, this is worse than their date!
Squonk, I’ll never forgive you. ?
Why can’t Rainbow let Aisha and Nex kiss? I know Rainbow has toned down the romance between all the Winx couples since the older seasons, but these two haven’t had a single, uninterrupted kiss scene. You’d think the writers would make an exception to better establish the couple’s relationship.
But nope! Only Bloom and Sky may kiss now! Because they’re the most beautiful couple ever! ?
Well, there are still 13 episodes left in Winx season eight. Maybe Rainbow will surprise us with an even more romantic Aisha/Nex moment…with an actual kiss in it.
