one of the most gut-punching lines to me in the entire musical has to be “tomorrow will be far away, tomorrow is the judgement day”. for everyone it really is The Moment where all eyes are on them. imagine how enjolras and les amis must feel when they realize they’ve lost. do they think that this is their punishment for rebelling? could this really be their Judgement? the same goes for valjean. he saves marius, but at what cost? he’s tired and he’s lost his daughter to the man she loves. or, he hasn’t really lost her, but he’s let her move forward in her life. a life seemingly without him as he pulls away. is this his Judgement? it’s like they’ve all planted seeds in a garden they’ll never get to see.
Barry Allen’s second & true proposal to Iris was as extra & ridiculous- yet utterly sincere & adorable- as I always wanted. This was some season 1 Barry shit 😭 HE FUCKING SERENADED HER. All other ships can currently fall back. There’s no competing with this for a while.
