Yeah, it’s been the slowest-burn relationship of the show. It’s been the one that it’s almost like friendship, friendship, friendship, and then what is it? I don’t even know how to label it. Even if he has a girlfriend, it’s human nature to still have feelings, depend on, and be caring about someone else. It’s interesting to see the fact that Meggy (Corbin Reid) notices it. She’s not stupid, and she notices it. It’s almost making Wes also notice it and Laurel, too, in a way, because it’s almost like they’re blinded as to how much they actually feel for each other.

Remember how we recently had an anon who denied waurel being a slow burn? Well, there you go. Straight out of Karla’s mouth, unprompted (the phrase was not mentioned in the question).
