A Christmas Special (later renamed Happy F*cking New Year) is a two-hour Christmas special of the Netflix series, Sense8. The episode was released on December 23, 2016. released in place of the second season which was postponed from July of 2016 to May 2017, due to the unexpected quitting of Aml Ameen, who plays Capheus, from the cast. Fans of the show were disappointed at the seemingly indefinite delay at the time, so in November 2016, Netflix announced the release of season 2 in 2017 and the Christmas special the next month.
Scandals and celebrations deepen the Sensates' bond as they rebuild their lives and try to outsmart Whispers.
The special opens with a montage of Kala swimming in Positano, later joined by Wolfgang and the rest of the cluster. The opening montage shows Nomi and Amanita doing laundry; Riley and Will liquifying heroin; Capheus carrying a jug of water; Sun languishing in solitary confinement; Lito taking selfies in his bathtub; and Wolfgang drinking alone at a bar.
It is soon revealed that the US government is still searching for Nomi when Agent Bendix questions Amanita on the whereabout of Nomi, which Amanita pretends she doesn't know. The conversation shows that the search has been long and unsuccessful and the government is resorting to monitoring Armanita's phone and Bendix threatens her with prison if she does not disclose Nomi's location.
Next we see Sun in her solitary confinement cell, presumably for having attacked her brother in the final episodes of season 1. She spends her time training and staring at walls.
Wolfgang is shown sitting with his comatose friend, when Kala "wanders" into the room and the audience sees the obvious unresolved tension between them due to their romantic/sexual history and the fact that Kala is now married to someone else. They do not speak and she quickly leaves.
Hernando is seen lecturing a university class on art and it's importance, when he is interrupted by all the students snickering and laughing at a rather explicit photo of him and Lito having sex, which was published online in Season 1 by Danielle's homophobic ex-boyfriend. Hernando sees what they are looking at and tries to explain that it is just a picture of two people who love each other, after one rude student calls it "shitpacker porn"
It goes back to Riley and Will, Will in a drug affected state communicates with Angelica Turing on how they both suffer at the hand of Whisper who is unrelenting in trying to track Will down, as he did to Angelica, driving her to suicide.
Back to Sun, we see her new lawyer, replacing the last one killed by her brother's acolytes. He wants to bring a re-trial to get Sun out of jail but it explain how it is almost impossible for that to happen,
In the next few scenes, if flashes between the whole cluster as Lito discusses the difficulty he has faced from his online exposure and how he is terrorised by reporters and homophobes. Kala also brings up how she has not had sex with her fiancé yet despite the lengthy period that has passed since their marriage.
Kala visits Sun, slightly confused to why she is there. Though Sun believes she understands how visiting works, Kala makes a comment that her visitings have been complicated and inconsistent. She soon reveals that she is afraid to experience sex for the first time.
Sun shares a story of a man she once fought in a tournament by the name of "Woojin." The story goes that she fought in the hopes that her father would allow her to continue fighting. Despite winning the tournament, her father forbid her from entering any further matches. Weeping silently in the locker room, Sun sees Woojin sit beside her and congratulate her for the match, telling her she was one of the best fighters he has ever fought. Staring into each other's eyes, Sun kisses him, soon peeling off one another's uniform and exposing their naked bodies for intercourse.
She tells Kala that it was that moment that she learned more about Woojin than she ever had in a hundred fights, added that sex is nothing to be fear but to honor.
Preparing for sex with Rajan, Kala tries to feel sexy in the mirror. Feeling ready, she leaves the bathroom and is abruptly visiting Wolfgang whom is seen having loud, rough intercourse with his date for the night. She closes the door and reopens it to a bored Rajan. At first gaze, he drops his phone, telling her that she was beautiful and that nothing would make him happier... except the words "make love to me." Climbing on top of Rajan, they share a kiss; again, she visits Wolfgang. They have a small inquary, Kala asking why he keeps distracting her and Wolfgang wondering how the situation is his fault.
The mood is eventually lost on Kala. As she tries to leave, Rajan makes an attempt to bring her back into bed, collapsing and rupturing a vein in his penis.
After avoiding Agent Bendix, Nomi and Amanita leave the women's shelter and migrate to Bug's boathouse to seek shelter. While the place appeared disgustingly messy, the girls choose to rest in a smaller space over "Bug's Love Nest."
Rajan and Kala return to Mumbi, India, and pick out a new home to start their own family. A glance at the pool, Kala was briefly reminded of Wolfgang before she is called over by her husband.
Wolfgang and Felix walk back to Wolfie's place after drinking in a pub. Noticing the pin removed from the door frame, Wolfgang gestures Felix to remain quiet, arming himself with a sidearm before sommersault into his room and immediately pointing his gun at one of the henchman nearby.
Returning home, Capheus recognizes the black car to be Silas' and becomes skeptical. Inside, he joins supper with his mother, Silas, and Armondi. Here, Silas informs them that he plans to run a clinic for the people in the area. Capheus believes it is only to juggle drugs through without suspicion.
A friend of Riley's briefly visits her and Will, bringing in drugs (Nacron) and a phone to call Will's father.
