I’m still reeling over these motherfucking space husbands. I mean, ‘because you are my friend?’ THEY ARE BARELY FRIENDS AT THE BEGINNING OF THE MOVIE AND NOW YOU’RE CRYING OVER KIRK DYING, SPOCK?! YOU DIDN’T CRY WHEN YOUR MOM DIED, YOU DIDN’T CRY WHEN PIKE DIED, YOU DIDN’T CRY OVER YOUR OWN IMMINENT DEATH, AND HERE YOU ARE, INSTANTLY BREAKING APART OVER KIRK DYING AND YOU KNOW WHAT, YOU ALSO ONLY BROKE APART WHEN HE CAUSED YOU TO BREAK APART IN THE FIRST MOVIE. KIRK IS THE ONLY ONE WHO CAN GET THROUGH TO SPOCK AND BRING OUT THESE EMOTIONS HE HAS WORKED HIS WHOLE LIFE TO HIDE. EVEN UHURA COULD ONLY GET THROUGH TO SPOCK WHEN HE WAS GOING THROUGH THAT BERSERKER RAGE WITH KHAN BY SAYING THAT KIRK’S LIFE WAS ON THE LINE. HE JUST SNAPPED OUT OF IT AND HELD OFF ON KILLING KHAN BECAUSE THAT LOGICAL, PEACEFUL, PACIFIST VULCAN WAS GOING TO KILL HIM, I KNOW IT. GOD DAMN THESE BEAUTIFUL, BEAUTIFUL SPACE HUSBANDS. 10/10, WOULD CRY AGAIN.

Although I absolutely love the movie and totally cried because I thought it was beautiful and full of feels and win, when I came to analyzing it (all nerdy like), I found myself caught on a particular question:

Why did Spock of Vulcan, who merely stood breathless when his mother was lost, cry (and subsequently scream, “KHAAAAN!!!”) at the death of James T. Kirk?

Many people have been saying it was quite out of character. But now, I’m not so certain. For the sake of enjoyment and procrastinating all of the very important study abroad paperwork I should be doing, let’s explore!
