The Eclipse Preview
The school is so strict that it reminds us of the time when Professor Umbridge entered Hogwarts. But if there are rules, there will be rule breakers. What happens when anyone breaks the rules? It is rumored that the rule breakers are severely punished not by teachers but by a curse that impends on that school. A group of students called “The World Remembers” have come together to challenge this curse.
As if this was not enough mystery, another new student is introduced. The newcomer Ayan has a mysterious aura around him as if everything he does seems odd. Therefore, the head student Akk is advised to keep him under surveillance. Ayan is not just a newcomer. The creators have provided Ayan with a backstory, a mission. Ayan joined the school to find out the reason behind his uncle’s suicide. While Ayan looks for the person behind his uncle Dika’s untimely death, he also manages to mess with Akk along the way.
The Eclipse Episode 4 Spoilers
Akk and Ayan are two rival boys who become closer with time but definitely not fast enough for the Akk and Ayan shippers. The fans are waiting forever to watch the boys come closer. This upcoming episode might fulfill their wishes. From the trailer of episode 4, their brief moments in the bathroom, the intense staring, or the soft leaning on the shoulder has the fans impatient for the next episode.
The chemistry between the main characters, the plot line, and the mystery receives a lot of love from the viewers. The supernatural or time-travel elements of the show are still not explored yet, so it can be expected that the series has much more to offer. The Eclipse has a long way to go since most of the riddles are still unsolved. We are yet to know the reason behind Ayan’s uncle’s suicide or the past behind the group “The World Remembers”. There are not many critical reviews about the show except that the actors look a lot older than high school students. The only thing you need to worry about while watching the series is that it’s hard to stop watching it.
