3. “Who am I?”

If anyone wonders what Sense8 is about, they need to watch episode 2 of Sense8’s second season. Lito is interviewed at a movie premiere in Mexico City, and Capheus is interviewed by a reporter in Nairobi. When both journalists ask Lito and Capheus who they are, a montage including all eight sensates answers the question, “Who am I?”

"Who am I? Do you mean… where I’m from? What I one day might become? What I do? What I’ve done? What I dream? Do you mean… what you see? What you see or what I’ve seen? What I fear or what I dream? Do you mean who I love? Do you mean what I’ve lost? Who am I? I guess who I am is exactly the same as who you are. Not better than. Not less than. Because there is no one who has been or will ever be exactly the same as either you or me."

The montage was classic Sense8: images, flashbacks, and the cluster taking each other’s place. Sense8 is about love, and the “Who am I?” montage is concise, emotional, and entertaining.

If someone has never seen Sense8, but wonders what it’s about, this is the montage to show them. We love how it communicates what the show is about and what life should really be about.
