I mean, EVERYONE KNEW what was going to happen, because it’s a remake of one of the most well-known stories ever.
But it was done so well. We had to wait 98 FUCKING EPISODES for it to happen, with tension building in little 5-minute segments twice a week.
It’s not like a tv show, where you soak it in an hour at a time in little chunks- with LBD, we lived it. And just when I thought it was never going to happen, Dizzie Day was a thing. I don’t think I have ever been more content with a ship becoming canon, nor have I felt so attached to my otp.
“Gigi told me you wanted me.” “She did..?” DOES ANYONE ELSE GET THIS? LIZZIE HAS TOLD GIGI/GIGI HAS CORRECTLY DEDUCTED THAT LIZZIE LIKES WILLIAM AND SHE’S SCARED FOR A MOMENT THAT GIGI TOLD HIM, so he has to clarify that it’s for the interview. (0:30)

He puts on the hat and steps out of his comfort zone for her (3:02)
Lizzie was about to apologize for mocking him on camera. (3:51)
William’s eyes dart, you can literally see him processing her disguised apology. (4:00)
William, in a similarly disguised manner, tells Lizzie that he is trying to change, see himself as she once saw him and change from that. Lizzie picks up on this. (This can be seen in his more joking attitude that we haven’t seen before.) (4:13)
Sexual tension silence (4:21)
It “would be weird” to reenact a phone call Lizzie had with her dad with William. (4:25)
William puts on an afro and a “Fitz” voice to make Lizzie laugh. (4:56)
Most genuine laugh we’ve heard from Lizzie. (5:03)
I feel like i’ve reached a higher plane of fangirling. Like suddenly I’m really calm. Like my feelings are so high, they’ve gone off the charts my body is able to deal with, so it’s stopped. I think i’m in the eye of the feels hurricane.
Lord help me when I try to go through the other side though.
