Laila is a (human) friend of Sophie. She’s quiet and shy, but provides a strong voice for empathy in Sophie’s life until a dark secret from her past threatens to end their friendship forever.
Episode 203: "How to Artificially..."
Laila's friendship with Sophie is one of the most important relationships in her life. As a shy social outcast, Laila finds Sophie's straightforward approach to conversation refreshing. Things get complicated when Laila reveals her secret to Sophie-- that her stepbrother is the shooter who killed the Lins' daughter, Michelle. Though Sophie doesn't blame Laila, she puts their friendship in jeopardy when she decides that it would hurt her father if she stayed friends with Laila.
Laila and Juju met through Sophie and became fast friends. Though they're both a little awkward, they clearly have developed some feelings for each other. But will they ever make it official...?
It is unknown exactly how Sebastian and Laila met, but it's been implied that he had something to do with pushing Laila and Sophie to meet and get to know each other.
