Why Spock Cried - A nerd's analysis.
WARNINGS: FULL OF SPOILERS & VERY, VERY, VERY LONG; I think I might be breaking some Tumblr code of ethics with how long this is
So, I was driving home from campus and thinking about Star Trek (because that’s what normal people do) and I was thinking about STID. 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!
