I mean, if that’s not an embodiment of the flawless optimism, hope and just… emotional honesty that shows he’s not going to become Archer, I don’t know what is. Their debate and bold declarations during the battle are all very well, but in this little dumb understated moment you see it. This is a boy who’s been hurt countless times literally and figuratively, and knows he’s walking into a life where he’ll likely continue to be hurt, but he refuses to harbour any regrets or bitterness. He truly wears his heart on his sleeve; what you see is what you get, and he is sincerely smiling even in the craziest and most dangerous of times.
