|— Even to Isak|
Having noticed Vilde speak to Isak, Even decides to join Kosegruppa in order to meet him. After the awkward first official encounter in the bathroom, Even and Isak talk outside on a bench, where Emma eventually finds them and they become a trio. Next Monday, Isak tries to learn more about Even. Wednesday, he ends up being volunteered by Vilde to host the pre-drink two Fridays from then, which is when Even catches his attention. Emma interrupts him by inviting him and his friends to their pre-drink that Friday. In the end, Isak ends up blowing them off to hang out with Even, at which time he meets his girlfriend, Sonja. On Monday, Even briefly confronts Isak in front of his friends, returning a cap he left at his house last Friday. At the neon party, they eye each other even while hooking up with their girls, Emma and Sonja. After everyone else leaves, Isak and Even are left to talk and almost kiss but get interrupted abruptly by Noora, who just returned from London. Emma arranges for the four of them, Isak, Emma, Sonja and Even, to have a pregame together before the halloween party. The boys end up ditching the girls and they go for a bike-ride, ending up at someone's pool. They kiss underwater, but get caught and make a run for it. They end up at Isak's, where they spend most of the weekend in his room.
Back at school they talk in the locker room where Even announces he broke up with Sonja. They talk about their parents and Isak makes a comment about mentally ill people which pushes Even away without Isak being aware of it. Even texts him saying things went too fast. Isak sees him that Friday night making out with Sonja, which upsets Isak.
He eventually tries to resolve his internal issues by coming out to Jonas, stating Even has been the reason he has been acting strange. He later tells Magnus and Mahdi, about Even. He previously also talked to Eskild about Even, and he gets confronted with his own internalized homophobia in that conversation, where he says that his feelings for Even don't make him gay-gay.
The boys help Isak reuniting with Even. They have breakfast together the next morning and spend a week living happily in their relationship. On Friday afternoon, they decide to check into a hotel where they sleep together. After this Even's mania causes him to leave the room, and Isak meets up with Sonja who tells him Even is manic. He talks about this with Magnus, trying to understand Even's actions.
When he is at church with his parents he gets a text from Even, and a concerned Isak rushes to Even at the school. Isak takes Even home with him, and looks out for him during his depressive episode, enlisting the help of the Kollektiv. At the end of the season Even attends the Kosegruppa Christmas party, and Isak agrees to Even's proposal to meet his mother. When talking to Eva about his relationship with Even, Isak mentions things are hard, but that he is happy he has met him, because it has changed him.
At some point before the start of Season 4 they decide to move in together, which they do at the beginning of the season. They are seen kissing at school, to which their friends are supportive. It is revealed Even hasn't told Isak about his past at Bakka yet, and he has an agreement about this with Sana. Eventually Even is confronted with this past when the Balloon Squad show up at Syng, but Isak is supportive of him while he is on stage singing.
Isak's jealousy then gets him into a fight with Even's former friends, which then escalates to involve Isak's friends too. They go to the hospital, and Isak returns to school with a black eye. Isak and Even's relationship is doing okay despite of this. They attend Eva's birthday party together, by which time the tension with Even's friends from Bakka seems to have faded, and they party together.
Even has prepared Isak's birthday video for the past several months which he instructs Isak to find on youtube on the day of his birthday, when they meet up at school. Even buys Isak beer and they drink together, before they're faced with a homophobic comment. Even calms Isak down and redirects his attention back to the fact that today they're having a party for his birthday. They meet up with friends at the park. They ditch the party early.
Isak and Even both attend the Eid-party hosted by Sana later that week, where they enjoy the good food. Isak proposes Even could make some of the food, and they settle on making it a date. Isak then suggests he wants to do stuff, and comes up with the idea of taking a trip to Marocco, which Even excitingly agrees too. At the end, they listen to Jonas' speech held at the party.</div>
