Okay, but what I love most about this scene is how Victor’s reaction has only one interpretation. It is unambiguous and agreed upon by 99.9% of the fandom.
Victor doesn’t say anything in the scene but just by his expression, his blush and his gaspwe all understand what is happening within him.
Because the only thing that he can be experiencing at that moment is love. Whether it is infatuation or attraction or a crush or just an incredible awareness of Yuuri’s cuteness, there is love involved.
And literally nothing else makes sense here.
Some people can deny many things in this show but this one scene, this emotion that appears in Victor’s face is real and undeniable.
That’s what I love most about that scene. It shows something so profound and true in under five seconds and it is clear to the viewer without any additional explanations.
And that is not only beautiful. That shows mastery in the art of direction.
