See, here’s something that really hit me about this update.
Dirk is so determined to save all his friends, avoid the Red Miles and save the universe that he literally cuts off his own head to save them, and eventually, himself. It’s heartbreaking, because it’s selfless and selfish and brave and ridiculous and maybe even a little stupid, but he does it, because he knows exactly what will happen, and he trusts Jake So, So, much.
I mean, the amount of faith he has in his best bro is astounding. He has to believe that Jake will follow through, because if he doesn’t, than everything he did was for nothing, and they would all just die.
Ladies and gentlemen and Others of Neutral Gender, I give you-
Dirk Strider. Prince of Heart.
