This is the moment that destroyed me in tonight’s episode. The body language speaking for everything they just couldn’t say in this moment. The way he leans into her to make sure she’s okay, and that she’s there with him. The way he’s offering her comfort and protection just by making sure his body is close to hers. The way she looks at him, not able to say anything, only able to take comfort in him being right there with her. In the first gif it’s like Castle turns away from Jenny and towards Beckett because it’s all too real for him. He realizes that this could very easily be him and Beckett in this situation, and in the second and third gifs, to me, it’s like Beckett feels exactly what he feels. All whilst their world is falling apart around them, they have to take this moment to take a breath. You can really see how affected they both are by all of this. And I just love that we were able to see them dealing with it together. No words needed, just a reassuring presence of the other. I feel like this is one of, if not the very first time we’ve seen them deal with something this heavy together. It’s a minor moment, but it says more than I think any dialogue could have in this moment. And A+ props to both Stana and Nathan in this scene, because they both knocked this one out of the park. Very, very real emotion here.
