When I said the mystery is more important of the romance, I don’t want to give the impression the romance is not good. I actually liked how real both Elliot than Tucker seemed; when Elliot was forced to leave the FBI, Tucker was not really sympathetic, and the reason was purely egoistic: Elliot leaving meant less chances for them to continue with their story, or also losing what little they had in common, aside for their job, Elliot and Tucker were at the opposite, and Tucker had the wrong idea only their job was bounding them. On the other hand, Elliot was stubborn, and not ready, or willingly, to listen to Tucker’s explanation, once he realized what mistake he did. Elliot is a little of a primadonna, and being attacked by Tucker was something he didn’t forgive easily; when he was down, he wanted for people to commiserate him, to tell him how unfair was the fate, that he didn’t deserve it… he didn’t want for someone else to be miserable, to steal his spotlight in hell, and Tucker was.
But now, months later, both of them are ready to admit they were wrong, and while Tucker is able to say the words, Elliot perhaps prefers to prove them with facts; it’s easier to commit with his body than with his words. Maybe since, words are harder to hide or deny.
