Killian has only ever seen her walk away and that only shows how willing he was to stay for her because he’s owed her that much for changing him into a better man! And he’s, in my mind, almost gotten as best as he can be!
Now she is realizing how much good he’s brought into her life; how much he’s changed her— and she doesn’t want that intoxicating feeling and affirmation to disappear.. So we’re gonna get HER chasing him, staying for him, pining for him! The tables WILL turn and this next episode will confirm all of that!
