With the onslaught of Fall TV comes the return of old crushes and introduction of new faves. The competition this week was pretty stiff, but considering I just binged Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Iain De Caestecker AKA Fitz of the show’s FitzSimmons took the edge.
Even further solidifying his spot in my heart this week (SPOILERS FOR THE SHOW, if you care) is the gut-wrenching, take-my-heart-and-stomp-on-it turn that his character has taken this season. In last season’s finale, he admitted his true feelings to Simmons and made the grandest of bold gestures and sacrificed his life to give her a chance of saving her own. We left the season with the status of his health as unknown. When the show came back this season, Fitz was still there working in the lab with Simmons but it was apparent that he had suffered some serious brain damage as he struggled to find words and to form ideas. The final blow was when we found out Simmons had left the team months ago and Fitz has only been imagining her as a way to cope. THE FEELS, right?!
(END OF SPOILERS) On top of all that, Fitz is just an adorable, nerdy, puppy dog of a man in his cardigans and plaid shirts. What’s not to love?
We have crushed on guys far less deserving. Some may say that Ward is the more crushable option on the show, but they obviously wouldn’t know me very well.
