Bradley Cooper performs on the Pyramid stage to shoot footage for a film called “A Star Is Born” on day 2 of the Glastonbury Festival 2017 at Worthy Farm, Pilton on June 23, 2017 in Glastonbury, England.
I think what really upset me was that Rocket already had to watch Groot die. Like I know he saved him and we’ve all been blessed™ with baby Groot, but just when Rocket felt most alone/most misunderstood, suddenly Yondu came along and turned out to be that one person that can really relate to what the poor animal had to live with his whole life.
And when Yondu told Rocket that he needed to stay behind to help Quill, I could see that Rocket knew: Quill was the only one who would make it back to the ship.
And get this, when everyone yelled at Rocket and asked him where Quill was, he just said “I can only lose one friend today.” I wondered if he was talking about Quill, but what if he meant Yondu? He knew that Yondu went to save Quill. Which means he believed that Quill, at least, would return. He could tell by the look on Yondu’s face that Yondu was going to sacrifice himself to get Quill out of there alive.
Just like Groot did the first time.
Except Rocket couldn’t save Yondu like he saved Groot
