Clint: I almost killed a man tonight. An eye for an eye. I never want to get to that place again. Is that what this spy life is?
Bobbi: Only if you let it. There’s always going to be secrets. I know you hate that, but it’s true. People will die sometimes because of your actions. But this is my life now.
Bobbi: And if it was me, I would have killed Cross.

The thing I love about Clint and Bobbi’s relationship is that they’ll never not be at least somewhat in love with each other, but right now, where they both are in their lives, there is no way for them to have a healthy relationship with each other. And they have to figure out how to live with that.
I think there might be a time in the future when Bobbi and Clint will be able to in a romantic relationship again, but now is not the time, and I really like that they had to come to that realization together.
