Rin’s heart is a flutter. Haruka opens his eyes wide“Rin…!”He’s shaken, his eyes waver. As if trying to shake off that sight, Haruka closes his eyes and goes to put on his goggles. The pain in his heart doesn’t go away but Haruka thinks”Forget it for now…”and pulls down his goggles. [x]
OK OK STOP the best part of this entire situation is the fact that Haught was so ready to just let it be, she never pushed waverly never made her do anything she didn’t want to, LITERALLY ONLY INITIATED CONTACT AFTER WAVERLY MADE IT EXPLICITLY CLEAR SHE WANTED TO KISS
I think Fitz saying that this situation is “one of the oddest, even for us” is his (quiet) way of acknowledging Jemma’s feelings for him. I think a lot of us expected him to assume Jemma had gotten over him while she was on the planet, had decided she didn’t want their date to happen. In this conversation, though, he doesn’t try to write off her feelings for him or tell her how she feels, he acknowledges that she’s in an unbelievably difficult and bizarre situation. And he doesn’t push it.
Of course he’ll help get Will off that planet (because he’s a decent human being) but I think we can also see that maybe, just maybe, he’s not given up hope yet, doesn’t assume Jemma would choose someone else over him. And after all of his feelings of abandonment and how much that weighed on him and made him feel inferior in season two, I think Fitz accepting, maybe, finally, that Simmons could love him back the way he loves her is some serious character development.
