Ignoring everything that has been happening lately, NOONE can deny that the look on Sam’s face when he realises the crazy dude is going to cut Dean’s throat is sheer terror.
Just listen to these words again and again and again. Watch Sam’s expression closely. Whatever everyone thinks, Sam STILL cares. It’s stupid to actually think that he would be ok with Dean dying. He worries about him and he loves him. He’s just too hurt to fully show it. He keeps his distance.
And look how Dean barely flinches, doesn’t try to fight it at all….
People don’t realize that it’s SPECIFIC!!! Sam will forever save dean and do whatever it takes to save dean as long as Dean wants to be saved. It’s when he DOESN’T that Sam feels he would no longer do “anything” to save his brother.
But can we talk about how Dean doesn’t even look scared that he’s about to have his throat slit. He only flinches at having his shoulder tugged back. Even when he’s sitting there and he KNOWS the guy is right behind him, the camera has been turned on, the scene is set, and he is about to die. He doesn’t even look like he fucking cares! He just looks at Sam with this “Well, this is it, you won’t have to put up with me any more” look and IT HURRRTS
Damn Dean looks at Sam and it just seems like ‘fuck it, it’s not worth a damn anymore anyway.’ This makes my guts clench. Painfully.
That’s what I noticed too! Dean just…doesn’t care.
Then again, he also has the Mark of Cain - I wonder what would happen if you tried to kill someone who has the mark of cain on them?
"And what do we say to death?"
"The fuck out my face"
i noticed this too. the worst part is that in both scenes, they’re having to argue with their captain to do their job. A+ characterization of kirk right there ugh
How nice that you all are ignoring context. Wonderful.
Uhura is asking this after they’ve been shot at multiple times by Klingons who are clearly bent on killing the lot of them, and have just been cornered by them. Kirk is afraid that they are going to kill her on sight without letting her have the chance to do her job. Before this point, he had every intention of letting her do her job (“Lieutenant, how’s your Klingon?” “It’s rusty, but it’s good.” “Good, you’re coming too.”). He does not want to risk her life on the off-chance that the Klingons will listen. He is doing his duty as captain and attempting to keep everyone safe, as well as being his usual stubborn protective self (which he does for EVERYONE he cares about). He is being very Jim Kirk in this scene.
You are also ignoring the context of the conversation itself.
Uhura: They are ordering us to land. Captain, they’re gonna wanna know why we’re here. And they’re gonna torture us, question us, and they’re gonna kill us.
Kirk: So we come out shooting.
[Uhura rises from her seat and goes over to Kirk]
Uhura: We are outnumbered, outgunned. There’s no way we survive if we attack first. You brought me here because I speak Klingon, then let me speak Klingon.
You are deliberately manipulating us into believing that Kirk is shutting down Uhura’s agency and that she is pleading with him to regain it. This is not true. Jim does not want to risk the life of a valued crew-member and one of his dear friends on the off-chance that the Klingons won’t kill them on sight. This has nothing to do with sexism, and cutting out the context of this scene is a shitty and manipulative thing to do.
As for Carol’s scene, she is not actually addressing Kirk directly, but Bones. This is the scene where Bones’ arm got stuck in that torpedo. Kirk is not even physically there.
Kirk: Dr. Marcus, can you disarm it?Carol: I’m trying. I’m trying.
Bones: Jim, get her the hell out of here!
Carol: No. If you beam me back, he dies! Just let me do it!
[Carol quickly works to deactivate the torpedo]
Kirk is in no way trying to keep Carol from doing her job. She is attempting to save Bones’ life, and Kirk is very willing to let her do it. He is trusting that she will be able to deactivate the rocket. He is placing his best friend’s life into her hands: if that’s not agency, I don’t know what is.
So shut the hell up and stop being deliberately manipulative and trying to force victimization and a lack of agency on two very talented, very capable women who were not belittled or looked down on, and by no means did either occur at the hands of Jim Kirk.

I want a Hawkeye movie that takes place during all the Phase 2 MCU movies, but it’s all about the ‘minor’ stuff Clint does during them. Like, sorry he missed the Mandarin stuff, he was fighting the mob, and sorry Cap and Nat he was gonna come but Trickshot found him and he had to fight for his life, and oh wow Thor sorry to hear about your brother dying (not really), but he got a dog wanna meet him?
Regina and Snow seem to be in peril…I wonder who will save them from the terrifying flying monkey?
Avengers means Bros, and Bros means nobody gets left behind.
