And here Babs is apologising like a champ, and watching out for Dinah. They make my heart hurt when they’re like this.
This is my favorite Helena and Barbara scene! Helena was trying her darndest not to show a crack in her armour, and opening up like that was pretty big of Barbara considering who she is and pretty much knowing Helena was going to reject her. It was simply the right thing to do.
I enjoy the dynamic of their relationship. It doesn’t come as easy to them as Barbara’s and Dinah’s or Helena’s and Dinah’s, and they have to really work at it. It’s kinda weird and neat, they have this acceptance/avoidance thing going between them. In some ways their relationship reminds me of Wonder Woman and Artemis, except they aren’t as open or generally willing to express vulnerability around each other. That’s why this moment is a rare gem.
