“I was always chasing after you..”
“Love lower your eyes... give me a sign”
"He loves her, She loves him. She's his equal in every way."
IS IT SO STRONG?
I love this scene. I love everything about this scene. It also just happens to be the most beautifully illustrated example of the #thepull I can remember thus far, and it represents everything that I adore about this couple.
Francis, as we saw, had recently been so directionless, so restless, so purposeless. So…adrift. Yet here he is, anchored and locked securely into Mary’s orbit, drawn in and held in place by a force whose power he once dreaded. In loving her, he has discovered the sun around which his heart rotates.
Let us not forget, though, that these two are equals in all things. Just as Mary holds him, he holds her. In the previous two episodes we had seen the Mary we thought we knew and loved spin out of control, making reckless decisions and taking enjoyment in humiliating Catherine and gloating over her death sentence. Here however, at this moment during her wedding, she is grounded and steady once more. Her movements are more rapid than his, more dizzying, but she stays centered by keeping her eyes fastened on him, as if his gaze were a polestar that both guides and binds her.
If she is his sun, he is her true north.
And while they may argue, fight, and stir up more than their fair share of angst, I never worry that they will become those two people travelling on separate paths, as Francis once fearfully expressed. No diverging roads for these two, only concentric circles pulled toward—and rotating around—an axis that neither time or gravity can defy:

I’ll pressure you, and listen to you, and argue with you, and love you until the day I die. Together we will decide what is right, as husband and wife.
