I just finished The Punisher, and I'm curious on your thoughts regarding the elevator scene with Frank and Karen?!
I HAVE SO MANY FEELINGS ABOUT THE ELEVATOR SCENE!
I mean, my feelings start before that scene. His “I’ll come for you” when Lewis pulls her into it? The way they were able to non-verbally create a plan to get her away from Lewis before the bomb went off? The way he cups her face when they’re on the floor of the kitchen?
But Jesus, that elevator scene. I love how much unspoken is communicated between them. The way they lean into each other, the forehead touch, all of it is just so amazing. Jon Bernthal and Deborah Ann Woll are both incredible actors, but when they’re together, they really knock it out of the park. Plus with that scene we know from what he told Micro earlier that he views Karen on the same level as Micro views Sarah, so to see him go through so much and be so beaten up and bleeding and barely standing upright but still coming for her? I think the moment where Frank sags into her and their foreheads touch, it’s just SO MUCH and NOT ENOUGH and you see how vulnerable he lets himself be with her while also how much they’re both still holding back and JUST LET THEM KISS ALREADY!
Seriously, these fucking two will be the death of me.
