Sense8 S01E09 "Death Doesn't Let You Say Goodbye" Recap

Riley visits a cave she used to go in as a child. She encounters the woman who has been the voice she always heard as a child. The woman's name is Yrsa and she is also a sensate but not from the same cluster. The reason why Yrsa warned her is because BPO have a facility in Iceland and wanted to warn her away before she would get caught. Riley is angry that she made her believe she was responsible for her mother's death as a child. Yrsa apologises but assures her she was only trying to protect her just like she tries to protect any and all sensates she finds. Yrsa never had children herself as she always feared they would end up like her and have to live their lives being hunted. They recall a time Riley almost froze to death in the mountains, a particularly traumatic memory of hers, and Yrsa was able to sense her and called the authorities to rescue her. Riley says that she wanted to die up there with "him." Yrsa says that now she must go on the run too. Since Riley returned, if they find her then it's only a matter of time before Yrsa is taken too. The technology to find sensates has advanced over the years through science research and developments in technology.

Will has a nightmare of being pursued by Whispers. When he wakes, a weakened Jonas visits him. Jonas is currently imprisoned at a BPO facility. Jonas explains that if he wants to communicate to Will without being heard by the cameras recording his body he needs to visit Will so he is only taking on the form of a voice in Will's head. If Will is visiting him, then Jonas will be speaking out loud to communicate with him. Jonas doesn't know where he's currently located and says he won't be killed currently since he still has value to BPO. Will has a visit with Riley while she's still with Yrsa. Will says he's talking to Jonas. Jonas can tell Will likes Riley, though he can't see her, just as Yrsa can tell she likes Will back. Yrsa says love inside a cluster is pathological while Jonas says Angelica, whom he loved, believed sensates experience love in its purest form. Yrsa tells Riley to ask when Will's birthday is and learns that they share a birthday. Jonas explains that all members of a cluster are born at the same time, as they take their first breath as one. Yrsa is shocked to learn that Jonas is the one speaking to Will and warns Riley to leave the conversation. Jonas advises Will to not let Riley stay in Iceland since BPO has a large facility there and many sensates have disappeared there. Yrsa tells Riley that Angelica Turring was the one to birth her cluster and says to never be in touch with Jonas again. Yrsa doesn't like them, saying that Angelica and Jonas worked together with BPO to birth clusters to find more clusters. Riley says that Jonas tried to help them but Yrsa says that if Will is connected to Jonas then it's only a matter of time before Whispers finds them.

Rajan defends Kala from what he feels is an overly aggressive approach and says if they have any further questions that they will have to contact their family lawyer. Kala asks Rajan if he blames her for what happened to his father and he responds that with how many death threats he had received for speaking out against religion to the press, he should've known better than to go into a temple.

Lito sits in a museum and reflects on the first date he had with Hernando and the instant connection he felt to him. Nomi visits Lito and through their first moments speaking, they find that they were both experiencing moments of sadness and longing for the life they once had with their loved ones. Lito wants to be back with Hernando and Nomi wants her happy life with Amanita again in which they aren't being hunted by BPO. This museum was where Hernando took him for their first date. Lito listened to him talk about art for hours until he couldn't take it anymore and pulled him into the bathroom where they had their first kiss and Lito gave him a blowjob in the bathroom. Lito acknowledges that he is the reason things have gone wrong because he was afraid of losing everything. Nomi can relate to the feeling. She opens up about the struggles she felt being trans as a young child. Her father hated that she would play with dolls and forced her to join the local swim club. Nomi wasn't comfortable with her body but was required to shower before getting in the pool. She would always shower with a shirt and swim trunks on and one day some bullies cornered her, removed her shirt, and forcibly held her under some scalding hot water that gave her second-degree burns. Lito is horrified by the cruelty. Nomi says that it was a seminal moment for her because she quit the swim club and also stopped trying to pretend to be who she wasn't. She realised that the true violence was what people do to themselves when they're too afraid to be who they really are.
