dramacrayz Posted May 29, 2016 Author Share Posted May 29, 2016 The show is surely beautiful and painstaking. I like the meaning of timeless love portrayed in Grey Rainbow. But it is quite confusing to find a cohesive explanation that applies to the whole show. Spoiler 1. On the timeline of story-telling... I think Porsche is recounting the events that have already happened and the lecture that occurs at the start of Episode 1 happens after Nuer died. I believe he was asked to be a guest speaker to the class. He can't be a long-term lecturer there since he has promised Nuer at the end of the show that he will stay at the elephant camp. 2. On whether Nuer died because of an underlying illness... I think he does not have one. Nuer wasn't seen going for medical check-ups, taking medicine on a regular basis, reminded by his parents or Porsche to take extra care for himself or showing symptoms of any discomfort prior to his death. However, since Nuer's dad has said before that Nuer's mum was not in pink health, this piece of information can be used to speculate that Nuer might have some form of illness, passed on by his mum. 3. On whether Porsche knew Nuer was going to die... Porsche had a bad omen with those dreams. I think the crossroad in the courtyard must have prompted Porsche, when Porsche was at the elephant camp with the same crossroad, to think that someone is going to die. However, there are suspicious words from Porsche at the start of Episode 1. When Porsche chased Nuer's motorbike and they had chat there, Nuer urged Porsche to live on his own instead of his family. Porsche retorted by asking Nuer how long he thinks he can still stay with his family. This prompted a weird look from Nuer. Indeed, this question seems to imply that Porsche knew that Nuer is going to die young. Maybe Porsche knew Nuer has a timebomb-illness (assuming that Nuer does have one) or that Porsche has already had some dreams. The other thing is the habit of Porsche giving Nuer watches as gifts. In Episode 1, when they were in the dormitory, Nuer even said that he gave a watch so that Nuer has more time to spend. Again, is Nuer running out of time? If so, does Porsche know something that we don't? It is quite a bold and scary thing to assume that Porsche knew Nuer was going to die from the start. For if this is the case, then Nuer is loving someone whom he knew is going to presumably pass away earlier than he would. 7 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
