“I will have you without armour, Kaz Brekker. Or I will not have you at all.”
I kinda hate that scene? Don’t get me wrong, I love Inej, and I love the fact that she takes a stand for what she believes in and didn’t tolerate Kaz’s shitty actions.
But she does not stop to question why he is fully clothed, why he wears gloves, why their lips can’t touch. She 100% discredits his PTSD. She knows something is wrong. She had always known as much. She literally was the only one who could possibly know just how bad it is. The only one who knows he passed out during a heist because of claustrophobia as a result of said PTSD. So her complete disregard for what she had already somewhat pieced together, her ultimatum she presented knowing full well couldn’t solve anything, was just generally kind of suckish? Saying he wanted her, admitting he wanted another person, was a HUGE step for Kaz. And sure, it may not be enough for her, and it probably wouldn’t be enough for me either, but knowing what she knows, and making the demands she made - I dunno, feels to me like she WANTED him to fail. Or suffer as he tried not to. And that to me is kind of heartbreaking. And kind of shitty. Thoughts?
