Can we talk about this.
Elsa could be well aware that Hans is about to kill her. I mean she could have heard him unsheathe his sword. But she obviously doesn’t care if she dies. She’s been told that Anna was dead and it was all her fault. She has nothing else to live for. Her parents are gone, and now her sister, the only person left who loved her unconditionally.
She’s so devastated that she won’t defend herself and that is what gets me about this frick scene right here. She feels like she deserves it.
