Just got back from watching No Way Home for the second time, but unfortunately none of my friends care about these things as much as I do -for them this is just 'another movie'. But I have a lot of burning questions and a lot of things that I want to discuss with fellow fans who care as much as I do, hence I came here.
Also, even though this is not so crucial to the plot, I will still be making sure that nothing is spoiled, hence the spoiler warning and spoiler tags.
So basically, while I watch watching the movie the second time, I realised that
Flash Thompson did not face the same consequences as Ned and MJ, even though he is more vocal about his (non-existent) 'friendship' with Peter/Spider-Man, and has also written a book about their adventures together.
Later on, during the bridge scene,
we also see the same book in the hands of the lady who is from the admissions team at MIT.
Why don't people
hate Flash, and why isn't his admission to MIT affected 'in the light of recent controversies"
