You know what breaks my heart in this screenshot? Right here, we see both Elsa and Hans reach their breaking points. Elsa believes that she’s lost the one person she was trying to protect; the person she loved, who loved her back unconditionally. And she thinks it’s her fault, which has always been her biggest fear in life. There was no way that she couldn’t have heard Hans draw his sword. She knew he was going to kill her, but she didn’t care. But countless people have talked about this already, so I’ll leave it at that.
On the flipside, Hans has reached the point where he’s so bitter, so desperate, so obsessed with getting the throne and proving his brothers wrong that he’s willing to do anything. He’s all but lost his humanity, and is actually enjoying the thought of murdering Elsa, because then, he’ll finally be on top. After twenty three years of being the youngest, the overlooked, the worthless spare that was constantly either bullied or ignored, he finally has a chance to be a hero; to be king. He doesn’t understand love. He knows how to use it to manipulate people, but he’s never actually felt it. If he has, it was probably used against him in a similar manner to how he used it against Anna and Elsa. In his mind, this is the greatest thing to ever happen to him, because his priorities have been so screwed up over the years. He sees it as his high point, when it’s actually his low point, and I don’t think enough people realize that.
