I just love what they’ve done here…

And, in my humble opinion, the whole dynamic is amazing!

Basically, Alan believes that ideas plus resolve can move mountains and aspires to protect other people (or restore their happiness/safety). He is also very straightforward about his feelings.

Lysandre likes him. Alan clearly reminds him of his own humble beginings as a “pure” altruist. You know, before Lysandre’s extended knowledge about the world, people and his progressing misanthropy.

And Malva? Well, she doesn’t give a fuck but she cannot resist either - it’s just so freaking amusing! Plus Lysandre’s smile at the end. It’s plainly amusing and they both know it.

Such a “pure” boy!

Such a “bad” man!
