//i think nux knew he wasnt gonna make it out of the rig. the way he looks at capable as she climbs out, to me its almost like he knows hes possibly seeing her for the last time. even if rictus didn’t drop onto the hood and fuck things up, nux knew the chances of him getting out safely and getting to the other car was pretty slim.
thats why he told capable to go before him, rather than him just jamming the throttle & going straight after her. ‘cause if he did, he was risking capable’s life too. also, the look on his face the entire time is kinda sad - not worried or outright terrified, but almost resigned. like he knows its gonna happen & hes accepted it
