What does "It was gonna be you" mean here? Could you give me some example sentences using "was gonna be"?
The phrase "was gonna be" is used when discussing alternate scenarios. Something could have happened if things were different. You also may know this, but "gonna" is the informal way to say "going to." I haven't seen this movie, but it seems when he says, "it was always gonna be you," he means that she is the one for him; that he loves her, and that no matter the scenario, he still would have fallen in love with her. It's difficult to tell since it's a brief scene, but this movie appears to be a romantic Christmas movie, so it's safe to assume that he is telling her that she's the one he loves. Here are examples of "was gonna be" being used. Ex: I was gonna be a star if I didn't live here. Ex: She was gonna be in the Olympics if she didn't injure her knee. Ex: It was gonna be warm today, but instead, it rained.
