Discussing how Ben tends to “launch” himself at Callum

As promised a THREAD of those moments&the 4 times Callum did the same..
I may have interpreted launch as “with force&intent” 🤣🤷🏻‍♀️
#Ballum #EastEnders

1. Wht better way to start than bens relief after finally saying ILY 🤷🏻‍♀️
2. As max said in the SFTS “The best things in scenes like that are the things that are unsaid not what are said”

This scene is the epitome of that and the way they both know what they want but it’s Ben who makes that 1st move... the maybe does a little launching 🤷🏻‍♀️🤣
3. “Closer... CLOSER”

Let’s just celebrate Ben’s desperation to be ‘closer’ to Callum here and obvs those neck kisses, it’s not like Callum was that eager to get him to stop 🤷🏻‍♀️
4. “Come ‘ere you big grizzly bear”

His little wiggle across the kitchen to pull Callum in for that kiss. A moment of perfection and one of the epic domestic moments we were gifted before Phil ruined it and it all went to shit 😭
5. “Did you just say what I think you just said”

The realisation of what Callum just said and the sheer relief at having Callum declare his love again after all that had happen... cue succumbing to the emotion of the moment and only existing in each other’s arms 🤷🏻‍♀️❤️
6. “I want you to be you”

The grab of callums hand and encircling it with both of his own is a special moment... but it’s the forehead kiss with intent... that one will always be 🥺
7. Tbinking Callum had left him after Ben realising the severity of how he had made him feel...

The walk back over to him from Callum, coupled with the neck touch to let Ben know he’s still there gives us this beautiful, yet heartbreaking launch of Bens into Callums embrace 😭
8. “Role.... I’ve been waiting soo long to hear you say that”

Let’s just stan Bens face at the mention of role play and of course the way he intently approaches his man and grabs at the hoody to pull him in for that kiss... like that idea much Benjamin 🤷🏻‍♀️🤣
9. The way Ben goes to Callum for a tie, needing the comfort and Callum as ever is the pillar of support...

“I’m here!”

The touch of Bens cheek and the way he throws himself into Callums arms wanting, needing his love and support... no you’re crying 😩
10. If we are gonna have a launching thread I have to include the moment Callum frees Ben from the boot.. then this intense passionate confrontation..

“Come on, it’s your move!”

The accidental punch by Ben & Callums “I know what’s best for me, I KNOW”it’s just top tier Ballum
11. “What a day”

The relief Ben feels after having a horrendous day as soon as he is in the flat he can relax... flop down on the sofa and automatically launch into Callums chest for that so needed sense of belonging... one of my fave scenes... im sure by now u know this 🤣
12. Don’t shoot me for including this... Bens “please” with movement&intent to touch Callums arm to keep him there so he will listen to what he has to say. It’s the first time he actually reaches out for Callum & also the moment Ben let’s Callum know he likes him “why u think?”
13. Right level with me here... like there is no “launching” in this initial soft beautiful moment of acceptance
But.... in the words of the god that is Pete Lawson... ‘Their hunger and their need takes over’ so the push and pull between the two is there for us all to see 🤷🏻‍♀️
14. Let’s move onto our dear Mr Highway...

The pure undeniable rage Callum had running through him leading to forcefully push Ben at the door in this moment was the precursor to him revealing the part of himself he so deeply had locked away...so I feel it’s a valid inclusion 🤷🏻‍♀️
15. Sooooo on to Callums coming out...
Id say his movemnent with intent in the walk over to Ben, grabbing his face and kissing him for all to see! Maybe not launching... but look it’s a great moment so let me have it 🤣
16. “Just enjoy yourself”

Listening to Bens words of wisdom, I’ll never get over Callum’s intent to ‘throw’ himself into this kiss & even as Ben pulls away he still goes in for more!! Top draw Ballum moment! Callum may have been alcohol fueled but he followed his ❤️ I stan that!
