I am. I've been in love with him since I was twenty-three years old," and her voice cracks with what's probably relief: "He's -- he's everything to me, he's my life, I feel complete when I'm with him, and I feel empty, when we're apart." Ouch. But when we cut to a shot of Luka, although he looks sad, he seems to understand what she means, and to empathize. Crying now, Carol says, "He's the father of my children -- and he's my soulmate." The corner of Luka's mouth twitches as if to say, "I remember." Carol had me up until this point, even with the soulmate business, which I won't hold against her because really, Dawson killed that for me, not her, but then she has to ruin it by telling Luka a bunch of shit (tm gwen): "You'll find someone, Luka, you will [insert small but telling eye-roll by Luka here], you're such a wonderful man. She's out there, I know she is." Luka closes his eyes in The Blink Of "Please Stop It With That," but she doesn't, saying he'll find a woman to love him the way his wife loved him, like, Carol, quit while you're behind, and for god's sake stop patronizing the man when you don't know the first thing about how he feels, or care. Carol wipes the tears from her face and whispers through a smile, "You'll find her, you will," and I know she's just taking care of unfinished business here and feels all happy that she's going to find her true love, but enough with the buck-up-little-camper business, please -- just go already. She goes to him and kisses him on the forehead and both cheeks, and he makes a "this is it, might as well enjoy it" face, and she leans her forehead against his and holds his face in her hands and whispers again that he'll "find her," like, Carol? Get. On. THE FREAKIN' PLANE already. Luka bites The "My Life Sucks" Lip. Carol rushes out. Okay, y'all know I'd tune in every week to listen to Goran Visnjic read selections from the tax code, but the guy can act like hell. He owned that scene. That face is a recapper's dream, people, and not just because it's beautiful; everything is right there, all I have to do is type.
