    For all of you saying, oh sad for the dad, I sure hope the boy doesn't end up like that and finds himself. Metaphorically the director and story told us what happens. It was even repeated to us. Boy - we can just go for a walk (meaning see each other, no one has to no) Dad I have to tell you, I can't see you anymore, it has to be that way, I hope you understand (I can't betray my daughter wife marriage and everything I built) Dad-Ride safely. (Go on and be safe, I wish you all the best. ) Boy- I don't have a bike. (I feel like I can't go forward without you, I won't survive, my heart is broken, the father is represented by the bike) Dad- then walk safely okay (think wisely choose what I have become or be who you really are) Boy okay (I don't have a choice, I will go on without you. Then when the boy goes from walking to smiling to running. (The running means he didn't choose to walk the mans same life. He choose to be true to his feelings and he is happily going forward finding his real self.)

    And then Godric met Eric; they got married & raised cute little vampire babies, happily ever after...

    The dad, by definition, did the right thing. He was married. Obviously, he forgot to figure out a few things first, but he didn't cheat like some people do. Give the guy points for not cheating! Nice job, dad. Wish mine would have made the same decision. (My dad isn't gay, but he cheated on my mum)

    Does this happen to people? I'm sorry. That sucks, for people like Stig and then people like Carsten.

    i know how that works. ive been with a guy like Stig. Older and grew up in a different generation. they are gay but have the wife and kids because thats how it was for them and now Stig is too involved and afraid to be his true self. some guys feel more secure having that family thing too. so Stig woulf never leave his wife. his thing would be a series of unresolved episodes and hurting someone like we see here. so he did the only thing he could do was to end it. i can only hope the younger guy eventually gets over it and finds happiness
