|Thore Schölermann as Christian Mann and Jo Weil as Oliver Sabel|
Here i one of my absolute favourite couples: Chrolli. Christian Mann and Oliver Sabel started their beautiful love story in 2007 in Verbotene Liebe and it has been magical since then. And now I've red that the couple will split up. Outrageous. Well, Christian and Oliver has had their ups-and-downs and their on-and-offs of course, but a more beautiful and interacting couple is very hard to find. I will tell you a little bit about their beauty.
Oliver "Olli" Sabel first appeared in Verbotene Liebe in 1999 and played a supporting roll until he hooked up with Tom Seifert in 2001. They had a (according to me) quite boring love story that ended in 2002 and Olli also left the series. My opinion is that the love story between Tom and Ulli had more of a spark. But in 2007 Olli returned because the writers had found him a new love interest. That is Christian Mann.
Thore Schölermann had since 2006 played the character of Christian Mann, the boxing younger brother of Gregor Mann who is a great character that we miss very much. Christian were straight and only had girlfriends before and Olli are bisexual, but in the later years of Verbotene Liebe, he only swung the manly way. Anyway, Oliver fell in love with Christian, and Christian had to fight it a lot until he allowed himself to confess that he had fallen in love with a man. And what a man he fell for! When he at last admited to Olli that he had fallen in love, I think one of the most, if not even the absolutley most beautiful love scenes were took place for the TV-viewers. The tenderness in the acting and the dialog combined with Sia's Breathe Me is just pure magic and beauty. If you haven't seen it, just take time for it. You will not regret it. The scene starts 2.15 in to the clip.
I love love love that scene! And I just never becomes tired of it.
The love story then continues with a lot of hiding, a big coming out, some gay bashing, severe illness, jealousy, AIDS-fright, a wedding, a foster child, infidelity, divorce, a heart attack, another wedding, a long distance relationship, more infedility, more long distance and now finally; a break up. And that will happen in may. But let's rewind the tape a bit and dwell upon this a bit:
|Christian and Olli at their first wedding.|
The first wedding was amazing. In a church, with a gay priest and all of their friends present. But the happiness weren't that long. Christian slept with Jessica and everything was ruined. But the couple managed to repair their relationship when Christian almost died by a heart attack. Here was also one of the most beautifel scenes when Olli realized that Christian weren't dead and proclaimed his love for Christian at the hospital. Not just Christian sighed with relief back then, all of the Chrolli fans did.
|Olli's and Christian's big reunion.|
But it was never really the same again. After that, it felt like the guys never got to kiss again. And we want to see the kisses. No other couple kiss with such a feeling. The storylines were quite boring and the spark was gone. Then Christian got a dream job in London and moved there in indefinitely time. At first, we were told it was just for some months, but then he never came back again. And we feared that Christian never would come back again. But then in September in 2013 he came back, and he did it with a bang!

He does it with a striptease. It is really hilarious. Christian and Oliver has their magical moments and we can see the spark again. But the happiness is short and we are told that Christian cheated again. And again with a woman! In Christian's and Oliver's relationship Christian had sex with three women and snogged with two. Oliver also snogged with an woman, and had a younger male lover, but anyway, I think this is a quite clear indication that Christian really is straight, but his biggest love is a man. And what a man! But anyway again, now it will end. We all suspected that it would come to an end. I mean, how long can a relationship go on when they never meet? But did it have to happen like this? Thore Schölermann wrote on facebook that both he and Jo Weil really do want a Chrolli reunion but he is not willing to return to the series without an interesting storyline for his character. I understand that. You don't want to become a supporting role when you deserve to be the leading lady! Even Oliver has become supporting role in periods, but that character has another charisma and survives that. Christian is actually quite boring without Olli. But I love them both. And I am really mouring right now. I have to admit that after the last leave I haven't watched the show. I really like it, there are lots of interesting characters that is easy to love like Andi, Jessica, Ricardo, Dana among others, but without any boy-on-boy action I have to prioritize watching other shows. I mean, the day only has 24 hours and I work in some of them. But I will watch all the Olli scenes in my vacation. I have eight weeks. And I think, I really think that when Jo Weil leaves the series, I mean, he has to some time (or they will cancel it), I really think that there will be a Chrolli reunion. The actors seem to like each other so much that they will make it happen. Let Olli have som fun and to finally get some sex before the most popular gay supercouple of all times finally end up together!
