That scene broke my heart. It was like she was drawing strength from this little boy and all the courage he was showing just by being there. And how he was there for his friend (giving him the cape...) - I think Brooke realized that she had people there for her.
Seriously, when he grabbed her hand and she started crying, I lost it.
I agree completely.
I mean, I was on/off with the tears throughout the entire episode, but that scene just put the icing on the cake.
It was so innocently powerful.
Just the fact that this little boy, who means so much to her, can have such courage and grace and maturity to be there for his friend... I think it definately helped Brooke understand that she had people there for her and I hope that is what gets her to finally open up next episode.
Gah. That scene was perfect. <3
