Description

This is, for me, 9 minutes of magic ;) We get socially inept uber dork Reid, tender and adorable Reid, sex on legs Reid, vulnerable Reid, intense staring Reid (sigh), jokey Reid, snarky Reid, defensive Reid and oh so much interaction with Bob and Luke. Perfect? Yes! Thought so! I love Bob's fatherly way of taking care of Reid. He knows Reid is completely RUBBISH and almost embraces it. "Cue cards?" hahaha! This is just 2 full minutes of Reid's inability to function in social situations. It's deliciously awkward ;) We know he hates small talk and seeing him shaking Mona's hand and saying he's thrilled to meet her looks like it causes him PHYSICAL pain ;) When Luke walks in, his face, ha! THEN is becomes one of my most cherished Luke and Reid moments. It's so domestic and hilarious. Cue their little bubble of understanding again! Luke knows Reid's hideously awful at stuff like that, Reid knows Luke's good. The LOOKS. Oh so brilliant! Van's faces had me in stitches! I ADORE (more than words) the way Reid makes a little finger movement as if to say "what he says" ... Luke is ready and waiting to help him out when Dr Reid Oliver Uber Dork rears his ugly head ;) It's so adorable! "the little people" .... and Reid's reply .... such genius and the timing between Van, Eric and Don. SO fabulous! The next scene was just quite comical really. Noah's being "fake" noble, the intense stares from the 3 of them. When I showed my housemate this bit he laughed so much ;) ....then the punch. Have to admit, for ATWT it was pretty realistic even if Mona's little head blocked it ;) "being hit is just part of being me" ... didn't know whether to laugh or awwww! Poor Reid. You can understand it though, right? :P [Anyone else kinda swoon at Noah's sudden manliness and spark? No? Just me then! :P] Awwww Luke, I adore you and super huge heart, no matter how misguided. That chin tilt and the way Luke CARES....I always want that for Reid. THEN we have the most adorable giggly, typical Luke and Reid scene in the hospital. It's comfortable and easy. Reid sweetie, Noah may be able to pulverize you with his fists and gun (ha!) but you can squish him in an instant with your words (and snark). The way Luke leans into that "face stroke of epic tenderness" TM. (ha!) ... *swoon*, Reid's face softening (kudos Eric AGAIN!) and his slight stroke of Luke's face... *double swoon*, then the almost kiss...*triple swoon*. I seriously melted. Reid.is.a.goner. GOD... and if that wasn't all too much for you.... how much did you SWOON FOR ETERNITY when Reid said "what are you going to do with me now" OH REID THE ANSWERS TO THAT ARE INFINITE ;) ...and "fallen for" !!!!!!!!!!!!! I loved the last scene with Bob. I actually do agree with him. I think, right now, Reid would be a fool and it'd be pretty out of character for him to choose Luke. Being a doctor IS Reid and the only way he'd comprimise is on a solid promise, if then! I'm refusing to comment on the ending scene. LUKE! Grrrrrrrrrrrrr! Next week should be INTERESTING!!!! :D Thanks for being so patient recently- life gets in the way sometimes :) Enjoy! Leave thoughts and favourite moments below!
