Warning: spoilers for episode 8 of Wednesday
Netflix viewers couldn’t get enough of Wednesday and Enid’s friendship following the premiere of Tim Burton’s highly-anticipated Addams Family spin-off.
The gripping eight-parter follows the morbid and witty Wednesday (Jenna Ortega) shipped off to boarding school Nevermore Academy, which is the same place her parents Morticia (Catherine Zeta-Jones) and Gomez (Luis Guzman) fell in love.
As expected, the unpredictable youngster tries her best to isolate from everything and everyone, including her chirpy roommate Enid (Emma Myers).
After becoming familiar with each other’s magical abilities, the two form a surprising yet totally loveable bond as the series develops.
In the season one finale, an emotional Enid tearfully helps Wednesday pack her belongings to go home the following day after an eventful and bloody semester.
The two almost hug, but Wednesday’s inability to show emotion wins out.
And fans can’t help but hope their friendship leads to something more.
‘Wednesday had more chemistry with Enid than any of the other male love interests and they were roommates,’ one enthused person tweeted.
‘NO BECAUSE WEDNESDAY AND ENID HAD MORE CHEMISTRY THAN ANYONE ON THE SHOW AND THEY WERE BOTH SO QUEER-CODED. IT IS SO UNFAIR WE JUST NEVER WIN,’ another added.
‘The Wednesday and Enid moments truly stole the show with every scene. Their chemistry was undeniable. Whether them remain as friends or become something more in the future, I love these two together!!!!!’ a third echoed.

While leading lady Jenna is yet to comment on Wednesday’s sexuality, actress Emma (Enid) recently addressed the ongoing fan theories.
‘You know what I always say: And they were roommates,’ she told Elite Daily, referencing the meme in which people refer to LGBTQ+ couples as roommates.
Jenna and I would say that all the time to each other. And that’s all that needs to be said — I think that gets the message across.’
Jane The Virgin’s Jenna also addressed whether fans could expect a second chapter very soon.
‘I have no idea if we’ll come back,” she told NME.
‘It could continue but it could also end. I think that’s what’s kind of nice about the show – we have the option.’
Wednesday is available to stream on Netflix.
