Can I just say that I loved the hug and all it represented?
Like, would it have been nice if there was a kiss? Yes. But the writers didn’t choose to show us the romantic side of Fitzsimmons in that reunion.
They showed us their bond.
Fitzsimmons’ bond is unshakeable-it has been tested, true, but it has endured against all odds. Their bond is so strong, so pure that a “curse” fron the cosmos couldn’t break it.
To me, that hug spoke louder than any kiss ever could. It showcased their bond perfectly-love isn’t always shown by a Big Damn Kiss. It is shown by hugs, a silent promise to keep the other safe, a way to comfort.
To me, it represented their unconditional love/bond better than a kiss could and I can’t imagine that scene being written differently.
