The look that they give each other is just, “We finally crossed the line, fuck.” I think both of them are scared now because neither of them fought off that kiss. Elena didn’t push back she didn’t resist, she molded into his form, she melted with that kiss. Its like all that pent up drive she had to refuse his advances, and her own personal desires, just disintegrated beneath his smoldering passion and adoration for her. Her mouth a gape, almost begging him to push forward and kiss her again is just proof to her harboring desires that she keeps so well burred. This kiss went exactly as I hoped it would, his final realization of “What the hell? No, I’m going to grow a pair and kiss the woman I’m madly in love with because I might as well give some meaning to my guilt.” was much more meaningful to me than him weighing in the odds and just leaning in to see if she moved. The fact that he took her and just kissed the hell out of her and showed her what kind of passion lies in a man as in love as he is makes that kiss even more beautiful. They both can’t handle it anymore and he finally decides to do something about it. He spoke what the entire fandom has been screaming at for years, just kiss her! Nothing could have been more perfect about that moment. I can’t wait to see the aftermath this might ensue.
