If we’re being thorough, Daisy has had 3 love interests before Robbie - Miles, Ward, and Lincoln. Miles taught her everything she knew about hacking and was her romantic partner and her partner within the Rising Tide. Ward was her SO, her teammate, her protector, and her almost boyfriend. Lincoln was the first person to make her feel safe in Afterlife and taught her about Inhumans and was her partner both in the field and outside of it. These three men couldn’t be more different, but they also all have one thing in common - all three of these men are, in some way or another, a mentor to her. Girl clearly has a type.
Remember that Ward and Lincoln both kept secrets from Daisy and hid the worst parts of themselves from her because they were afraid of being rejected by her. But there’s no hiding with Daisy and Robbie. There are no secrets between them. They’ve seen each other’s scars from the very beginning and they chose to stick with each other in spite of all that. They literally started from the bottom. And now we’re here.
And despite the fact that she and Robbie both have superpowers, there is such a quiet strength to the way they support each other, to the way they fight together, to the way they talk to each other. These are two people who have seen the worst in the world, who have been hurt and who have hurt others, who have believed themselves unworthy of happiness and love. These are two people who have seen the worst in each other but refused to turn their back, who have found the light in the other’s darkness, who have found happiness where they least expected it. These are two people who have finally found peace, and they found it in each other
I love this analysis showing Daisy’s evolution and her relationship with Robbie.
THE WORLD NEEDS TO SEE THIS. FUCKING PREACH IT
