17. “Call me back. I lost a flip flop.”

Lito can be very emotional. His tendency to be dramatic is always fun and funny to watch, and seasons 1 and 2 are filled with wildly entertaining Lito scenes.

This quote from our favorite Mexican actor comes from season 1 after Hernando broke up with Lito. Allowing Daniela to go back to Joaquin troubled Hernando, but Lito refused to get involved out of concern for his career. Unable to continue their relationship after realizing everything Dani was giving up to protect Lito, Hernando breaks up with him on a movie set.

Lito spends an evening getting drunk and calling Hernando’s cellphone, only to reach his voicemail every time. This scene has taken on a life of its own, and its significance to fans is interesting.

This scene is dramatic and sad. There’s no doubt that Lito’s usual flair for the dramatic is missing; he is heartbroken and not coping well. After Netflix canceled Sense8 last summer, fans all over the world mailed flip flops to Netflix headquarters. Some fans even wrote, “Call me back. I lost a flip flop.”

A moment of grief and vulnerability set Lito on a course to stand up for who he is. This quote also inspired fans to stand up for what they believe in: Sense8; the show, the stories, the characters.
