I'm over here, just having some 3 AM thoughts.
One of which is about the confession at the end, where Marinette says "I love you" with that face.
Like... like she's actually wanted to say it to him but never thought she could. But even more so, saying it to your superhero partner that you claim not to love, how could you look that genuinely in love and affectionate while saying it to him, if part of you isn't actually saying it, having it be meant for him??
The difference between her here, and at the beginning of her practicing, is very drastic. The difference in the words was great, but the change in delivery is what seems to really matter here for Marichat. Not to mention the music playing in the background is played during very meaningful and plot-altering scenes.
The words she uses too, while are very clearly for Adrien, can apply a lot to her relationship with Chat Noir, too. The only thing that doesn't apply is the trying to tell him something, but her brain not letting her part. At least canonically, for now. While that's not very obvious, we don't know that that couldn't possibly somehow be related to, say, Ladybug wanting to tell him about Chat Blanc but can't bring herself to. Or to tell him about her true feelings (as she has certainly said to him more than once, that she has trouble saying how she feels to boys. We know Adrien's one of course, but she seemed to do fine with Luka. So who's the other boy she's referring to when she refers to boys?)
"That's why I fail with boys. When they become important to me, I'm so afraid of doing something stupid that I need to anticipate anything that might happen..." ...Like if you ended up with Chat Noir, Hawk Moth/Shadowmoth would get the Miraculous and everything would be ruined?
The level of trust and comfort she has with Chat Noir is so clear in this scene, she's telling him some of her deepest, darkest, most personal stuff right here. It's beautiful.
