#he’s there to invite her to hang out with his sister #and then this bullshit happens #and he is so upset #HE IS SO UPSET #let me say that again and you can look at him trying to keep himself togehter in that one with his hand near his mouth #he is SO UPSET #because his lady love is in distress #because the bastard is back to old tricks #but also did I mention his lady love is in distress? #and all he can do is put his hand on her arm? #when he wants to punch a fucking wall or take her in his arms or fucking burn down the world #to make her not be in distress? #good god what is the matter? #his hand on her arm you guys #there’s a lot of emotional calculus going on in his head #because he’s processing Elizabeth’s distress #Wickham’s dastardy #his own culpability #how he feels about those three things #plus what is appropriate and proper in this moment #because he’s still got to be proper #I super love the Firth in this scene #I SUPER love him in it (by lulabo)
