10. “He’s my brother, and not by something as accidental as blood; by something much stronger: by choice.”

Wolfgang is a man of few words. While Wolfgang is sitting at Felix’s hospital bedside, Kala mourns as if the feelings are her own. Unable to focus on her life in Mumbai, Kala joins Wolfgang. As Kala provides Wolfgang support, Wolfgang shares how he and Felix met each other.

We’re taken on a trip down memory lane as we see a young Wolfgang meet a young Felix in detention. Wolfgang has trouble making friends, partly because of his East Berlin origin, but Felix treats him like family. The two boys fight bullies together and keep each other’s secrets. When Wolfgang’s father is violent with him, Felix is there to fight back.

Kala better understands Wolfgang and Felix’s friendship, and that’s when we hear this quote from Wolfgang. Felix is Wolfgang’s family and if it weren’t for his best friend, Wolfgang would have probably led a very different life.

Like Lito, Hernando, and Dani, Wolfgang has formed a family of choice. Sense8 loves to show us community and family. The idea of family is open to interpretation, and following the idea that love is all you need, we see many families by choice in Sense8.
