The tears in his eyes…. ;-;
Up until moments before this image, up until the moment he heard the message about them aiming torpedoes and got that hope that it would be his torpedoes, he was certainly mourning his crew.
He probably ran there and saved the three while his face was still streaked with tears. It dried while he fought and because of the hood thing covering his face, but his eyes were still full of tears…
*explodes from feels* ;-; bby…
I want to know so bad what happens on Qonos between Khan arriving on Qonos and when he has to save Kirk, Spock, and Uhura.
I just think he was a emotional wreck and trying to come to terms with what happen and even trying to figure out what to do with himself now. Just keep running? Turn himself in? I don’t know but it’s so sad.
Agreed, I wish we could have seen all the details. ;-;
My headcanon is that he arrived there a complete emotional wreck, but was planning to try his vengeance against Marcus again later, and to die in the attempt. I don’t think he’d turn himself in, that would play into what Marcus would have wanted. I think Khan was looking for death, either there or later in another vengeance attempt.
After all, when he thought they died by the end of the movie his immediate reaction was to crash the ship he was in. He clearly doesn’t want to live without them. ;-;
