    Grief affects everybody differently. 

    The group continued to fracture on We Are Who We Are Season 1 Episode 7 as news of the three deaths spread across the base like wildfire, and it really is becoming a complicated web. 

    We'll start with Colonel Wilson because her decision to send the soldiers before the 90 days were up was controversial. 

    Given the political climate in 2016 and the way she said people were looking for a strong leader, her decision to deploy the group earlier is a little bit more believable. 

    The way in which the soldiers died, though, could have happened no matter when they were sent to fight.

    There are casualties of war, but it was easier to blame Sarah for sending them out of the base earlier. 

    She wanted results and what she got was a whole lot of backlash. Sarah is unapologetic, and her personality rubs people the wrong way. 

    She doesn't care what people think of her, a...

    Things can change on a dime. 

    On We Are Who We Are Season 1 Episode 6, Caitlin tried to make her father understand that she was no different, despite shaving her hair off, while Fraser tried to get closer to Jonathan. 

    Caitlin has been through the mill in recent episodes, mostly because she feels like she only has Fraser fighting in her corner. 

    The decision to shave her hair was an impulsive decision that she didn't think through, but it has opened the door to the conversation she ultimately wants to have with her parents. 

    It's very clear Caitlin wants to transition and is watching videos about injecting testosterone to prepare herself for what's to come. 

    The fishing trip with her father was a pivotal moment in their relationship. Had Richard been against Caitlin's path, it could have derailed their relationship forever. 

    At the moment, Richard feels like Caitlin cutting her hair was brought on by he...

    Oh, what a complicated web of deceit!

    On We Are Who We Are Season 1 Episode 5, battle lines were drawn between characters, while relationships imploded, and it was a banner hour of this HBO drama series. 

    We'll start with Maggie and Jenny because their sexual encounter came out of left field. 

    They were forming a bond on We Are Who We Are Season 1 Episode 3, but it seemed destined to be a platonic friendship. 

    Maggie's body language as they were showing the new recruits their digs certainly hinted that they were a lot more comfortable with each other than they were letting people believe.

    What struck me the most was the way they were all over each other in the supermarket. It suggests the connection is so strong that they don't care who sees them together. 

    Jenny, in particular, was reserved around Sarah and Maggie when they first arrived on the base, but we're starting to peel back the layers on her. <...

    If you've ever wanted to be a fly on the wall at a party, then chances are that We Are Who We Are Season 1 Episode 4 was the installment you've been waiting for. 

    Unfortunately, it took a style over substance approach, resulting in the weakest outing to date. 

    The entire group of friends were at odds on We Are Who We Are Season 1 Episode 3, so it was quite the surprise to have them uniting for the party and mostly getting along. 

    In hindsight, teenagers do fall out with their friends often. They're fickle. The people that bother them one day can be their best friend the next. 

    It may seem strange later in life, but the biggest flaw that plagued the installment was the lack of depth for the characters. 

    Yes, there was a visible struggle, but the only character that truly resonated with me was Danny, someone who has clearly been on the brink of destruction for a while now. 

    He has a lot of anger that he d...

    Finding your place in the world does not just come to an end when you find the one

    We Are Who We Are Season 1 Episode 3 followed multiple characters and perspectives, and it resulted in the best episode of the series.

    Fraser and Caitlin's friendship is blossoming at a quick rate, but there's an undeniable connection between them because they understand each other on a level others cannot. 

    The breakdown of Caitlin's relationship with Sam was inevitable, and by extension, it was obvious her group of friends was going to implode after the relationship was over. 

    Sam clearly recognized something was missing, and it was largely because Caitlin has been spending all of her time with Fraser. 

    Despite being platonic friends, Britney and Danny failed to understand why Caitlin was leaving them behind. 

    In essence, it was because she could be herself around Fraser, and she felt like she was putting an ...

    After introducing us to the world through Fraser's eyes on We Are Who Are Season 1 Episode 1, it was Caitlin's turn on We Are Who We Are Season 1 Episode 2. 

    Caitlin is struggling with who she is and is still trying to find herself in the world. At 14 years old, she doesn't have much life experience, but she has the drive to do what makes her happy.

    The other perspective on what looked to be a sex scene with Sam from the premiere showed Caitlin to be uninterested in Sam and feeling like she had done something wrong by cutting the encounter short. 

    In essence, Caitlin's struggle is that she is unhappy with her appearance. We're starting to peel back the layers on why her relationship with her father is so solid as opposed to the relationship with her mother. 

    Caitlin's father understands her on a level nobody else does, and she feels like she is herself when she's out working and helping to make money.

    Luca Guadagnino's HBO Drama is An Immersive Affair

    Being a teenager is a complicated web of emotions. 

    With teenage dramas filled with more cliches as the years have passed, We Are Who We Are is here to prove that there is still life left in the genre. 

    It makes sense, then, that Call Me By Your Name director Luca Guadagnino is behind the series because his immersive way of telling the story on-screen translates very well. 

    With shots that would typically be reserved for movies, every single beat of We Are Who We Are tells a wonderfully nuanced story, and that extends to the scenes in which there isn't much action going on. 

    This style of direction comes with a lot of caveats, and those mostly come down to the actors at the wheel of the story.  There's no sense in utilizing sub-par actors who cannot carry the show, and We Are Who We Are has an astoundingly talented cast. 

    Jack Dylan Grazer has shot to fame in the last few years with roles in the rebooted It franch...
