Lexa could hide & control her emotions but she could never stop feeling them or escape them & she couldn’t stop herself for falling in love with Clarke.  

I think thats what really humanises her & make her relatable because she maybe this powerful leader & badass warrior but underneath all that she has vulnerabilities, weaknesses & emotions just like the rest of us.  

In this scene you really see this comes to the forefront & that why is one of my favourite Lexa scenes.   

vacation with luke - bahamas 

I miss you
I miss you

Hello there, the angel from my nightmare
The shadow in the background of the morgue
The unsuspecting victim of darkness in the valley
We can live like Jack and Sally if we want

Where you can always find me
And we’ll have halloween on Christmas
And in the night we’ll wish this never ends
We’ll wish this never ends…
