2. “I take everything I am feeling, everything that matters to me, I push all of it into my fist, and I fight for it.”

This quote takes second place for two reasons: it showcases Sun’s determination, and it showcases Sense8 fans’ determination.

Sun and Kala are polar opposites in many ways: Kala comes from a loving and supportive family, while Sun is shunned by her father; Kala is supported by the men in her life, while Sun’s achievements are ignored; Kala doesn’t know how to overcome her struggles, while Sun doesn’t how to do anything but fight for what she wants.

When Kala is at a loss at the end of season 1, Sun explains to her how she has so much determination to get what she wants. Sun doesn’t back down and she doesn’t allow others to control her. When Kala seems unable to act, Sun explains how she puts her determination into her fist and fights for what she wants.

The girl power in this quote was stunning the first time around, and in the wake of the cancellation, it became a mantra for fans campaigning for more Sense8. We believe this quote’s impact on Sense8 fans will continue to have an impact for years to come. When there are so many female characters that function in a story as “damsels in distress,” it’s refreshing to see a female character fight for herself.
