Ok so can I talk about my absolute favorite scene in the Jaal romance? Cause it’s this, this moment after a chaotic go-go-go rampage through Meridian, after the Archon has been defeated when adrenaline is pumping and everyone is flying high on their success, there’s Jaal. Ever complimentary and loving, giving Ryder the credit they deserve.
But then it hits him–and you can see it in his wonderfully animated change of expression–everything that had happened. Almost losing Ryder (again) in the Remnant City, fighting through waves of kett on Meridian, the crazy holy-shit-go-here-go-there-fight-a-shit-ton of remnant battle with architect!Archon and at any point one or both of them could so easily have died and so he has to kiss Ryder right then, right that second, who cares what all is happening around them because they’re both alive.
Guys. I love it so much.
