I also don’t see a manipulation at all. I think it’s just as Fitz says, she knows exactly who he is and everything about him, and really this house, this belief in them, is so much of who he is. He loves her, he wants a life with her, and even her fears and self doubts aren’t big enough to stop what is the reality of their love. The very fact that his faith is so steady and so secure, when ostensibly everything else around her/them continues to change and break… astounds her. It’s like she cannot believe how much he loves her. And, I think it astounds him that she could ever doubt that.
