Reasons Why McKirk: I love and hate this scene. Ok I just hate this scene because it gives me feels and then destroys them. The first few times I saw the movie I didn’t even hear Bones say “Jim, he’s the captain”. Jim did. You can see it on his face. He’s still talking to Spock but he looks at Bones. By the time the guards get there, he’s not even focused on Spock anymore. The feeling of betrayal outweighs his attempt at being heard. And Bones’ face as he’s taken away (GOD, KARL). He was only trying to help, but he knows what it looks like. Jim’s being taken away and there’s nothing he can do to stop it. He knows Jim was right, he knows Spock had the final word no matter what, and yet in the moment he made a split decision that made it seem as though he was siding with Spock over Jim.
