I can’t get over the feels. It’s incredible how he didn’t utter a single word to her, and yet he somehow SAID SO MUCH. I love his monologues, but this.. THIS is more impressive to me.
Still can’t deal with this, so here’s some more thoughts on the matter.
She 100% knew it was Red because Dembe called out for him when he started walking toward Berlin’s car.
But even before then, you just KNEW that she knew. Right when Dembe stopped walking, right in front of Red, she knew. And the way she stayed silent, I don’t know… there was something spoken in her silence too, though not AS WELL as Red’s. And I wonder if she could smell him, and if it was familiar.
And oh, the way Red lifted his hand for a moment, like he was just aching to touch her.. god. His jaw, tensed both to talk and hold back tears. But he stayed silent, and he didn’t touch her. He looked SORRY, just so, so, so sorry… like he knew that it would only cause her more pain if he did.
And of course this scene was also so very charged because Lizzie saved both his and Naomi’s lives by undoing the bank’s hold. Red didn’t know if he was going there to die or not, but he took the chance, and Lizzie came through for him.
It was just… everything. All of it.
His eyes and jaw clenching kill me. Unbelievable acting.
