Previously on GZSZ…the Scooby gang had Ayla’s new love interest over for dinner but all we could concentrate on is how amazingly cute Anni and Jasmin are.
What a heartwarming episode this was. All Tuner’s friends rally around to formulate a plan for when he gets his heart transplant. We open with Tuner reading on his bed when Nik comes in and jumps on his bed. Tuner thanks him for being such a great friend and that he’ll have to call his mother when the time comes and that he’ll have to drive him to the hospital and close up the cafe.
Cue this heartwarming song for the Tuner support montage;
Side note; totally knew I had heard this song before in something, it’s from the Ryan Gosling movie “Drive”. LOVE IT!!! HUGE shout out to the music department over at GZSZ, their choice in music is EXCELLENT!!!
Swipe cut to Nele who says she will of course call Tuner’s mother when the time comes. Swipe cut to Anni saying that she will look after the cafe and she will even call Katha to help too. Nik tells them they should set up a shift system because Tuner could be gone awhile and someone should always be at the hospital with him. Awww you guys….you’re gonna make me cry. Where are my tissues???
Jasmin tells Nik that he can put her and Anni down for the first shift at the cafe. Cos we all know that where Anni goes, Jasmin goes too
And WOOOOOW what the hell is Jasmin wearing?? Its like this lacy runway model outfit and I’ve completely forgotten what’s happening in this scene now…
Nele says she will take the second shift at the cafe. Nik says he will then take over from Nele. And Anni tells them they can just repeat that cycle.
….I’m sorry, but how are we supposed to concentrate with this happening???
Good Lord Jasmin! This is supposed to be a family scene! And how is Anni not checking her out? I mean, just look….
So back to it. Nik suggests it would be best if they set up a schedule of who calls who etc. Tuner tells Nik to not get the girls all worked up and Nele tells him that they are friends and want to know what’s going on with him. Cue this adorable glance from Anni to Jasmin.
SO MUCH LOVE YOU GUYS!!! <3 <3 <3
Cue the ADORABLE chart montage where they work out who will be doing what. And while the are all pointing at people and telling Nik what to write on the chart, Jasmin, OH MY GOD!, Jasmin adorably slices up an apple with a knife and gives it to Tuner. AWWWWW!!!!
I want these guys as my real friends! They laugh and have so much fun, even when they are planning a chart for Tuner. And now Ayla and Mesut arrive too to help out. Next they are all sitting on the floor in front of the chart and again all I can see are Anni and Jasmin.
Jasmin has her arms around Anni and Anni is holding Jasmin’s arm back…I don’t know why things like this still surprise me, but they do. With almost every other lesbian storyline, as soon as they get together one of two things usually happens. Either they A) skip completely over their honeymoon phase and immediately give the 2 characters issues to deal with or B) they just become best friends and we never see them being coupley EVER again. Linda and Janina surprise me in every scene they are in now, because they actually act like a REAL couple would act, and that is SUPER refreshing. So thank you Linda and Janina! Even the smallest of details means the world to us.
OK so just as our hearts become full, we have the amazing song playing and we have Anni and Jasmin all cuddled up and we think AHH all is right with the world…MESUT HAPPENS. He accidently steps on Nik’s phone, completely cracking it and the music comes to an abrupt halt. Way to go Mesut, for destroying the mood!
The next episode opens with Tuner getting examined by Phillip, who tells him that’s fine for right now. Phillip reassures Tuner that he will get a heart doner soon as he is “high urgency”. Nik asks Phillip what they can expect with the heart transplant. Phillip starts explaining how the operation works but Nik tells him that’s not what he meant. He wants to know what happens personality-wise. Phillip explains that the heart is just an organ and that the person stays the same, that Tuner will feel fitter and be more active. He recommends he have some chicken soup. Tuner asks Nik if he knows how to make chicken soup, and he says no, but he knows someone who can. QUICK! CALL THE SCOOBY GANG!!
Nele places a bowl of chicken soup in front of Tuner, while Anni and Nik are in the kitchen preparing a herbal remedy and Jasmin is again peeling fruit. I think the crew saw how amazing Janina is with a knife and now make her prepare EVERYONE’S fruit HAH! Jasmin brings over the huge bowl of fruit she’s just prepared and Tuner is all “Who’s supposed to eat all this?. Um I want some!!
I love seeing Jasmin be all nurturing. And speaking of nurturing, Anni is doing the same right now too. She brings over a big bowl of steaming water and puts a towel over Tuner’s head. He’s all being a baby and tells her she’s worse than his mother. At this point Jasmin gives Anni such an adorable look, she’s all like AW THAT’S MY SWEET CARING GIRLFRIEND!
Just then, the phone rings and Tuner perks up, all freaked out, saying that its the hospital. Nik answers but its just the hospital telling them Tuner’s appointment had been moved back an hour. PHEW! Everybody relax, false alarm! Anni tells Tuner not to be so freaked out next time, that he should be glad they are calling. He tells her to put herself in his position, having to walk around with someone else’s heart. He asks them what he thinks that would do to them?. Anni looks down and gives this heartbreakingly sad look to Jasmin;
It’s as if she is suddenly thinking about what it would be like if her current heart, that’s so full of love for Jasmin, were to be replaced. Awww Anni!!!
Next scene opens and Nele, Anni and Tuner are all lying on the bed. Tuner has his head in Jasmin’s lap and Jasmin is gently stroking Anni’s knee. Again, loving the tiny details you guys!!!
Nele picks up the huge bowl of fruit and hands it to Anni, who cutely takes a piece of apple and starts munching away on it.
They all look so comfy together on that bed together…I need friends like this!
They discuss how having another person’s heart might change some small preferences in your life, like eating habits etc. Tuner asks what its going to be like for him then, a foreign cell takeover? Anni jokes that she thinks his cells will probably still be in the majority LOL!
Jasmin notes that he will still be himself but with some bonus characteristics. As she says this, she massages his shoulder…awww such a sweetheart. They all tease him about how he’s gonna turn vegan with the new heart and he doesn’t like the sound of that one bit. He sarcastically says “Right, I’ll have the kebab with tofu please!”. Um gross LOL! Nele says what if the doner heart is from someone from Saxony. Tuner puts on a Saxon accent and says “Hey, I’m Tuner” and they all crack up. Anni asks him what about a Bavarian? He then does (I assume) a hilarious Bavarian accent and they all completely lose their shit…I mean it looks like the actors themselves are all cracking up laughing here. I mean just look at how adorable Janina is here;
Nele notes, that he will always remain himself and Tuner says “Yup, the coolest guy on the block!”. As they all hug him goodbye, you can see Tuner look a little lovesick there as he hugs Nele goodbye. Aw.
