I CAN’T GET OVER THE WAY HERMANN SAYS THIS LINE!
There would be no mathematical evidence to suggest that the kaijus are not being directed. If anything, their incredible ability to not only attack populated areas, but to always target cities lends credibility to the argument on directed attacks.
So why does Hermann say it’s impossible?
Hermann is worried and concerned because he only just saw Newt, on the floor, and Hermann probably thought for a split second that Newton was dead, especially since he checks his pulse when he finds him. He does not want Newt to drift again, because he thinks that a second time will probably kill him. So Hermann says something contrary to science, to logic, to reason, to try to convince Pentecost that this is not something that is important, to convince Newt that this is a ridiculous course of action, and it hurts him to say it. It hurts him because he is betraying his science, the one thing he’s always had, but it hurts more because he knows it won’t work, that he’s throwing everything away and it still won’t work and Newt is still going to find a way to do this again.
WHY ARE THESE CHARACTERS SO INTERESTING AND JUST AHHHHH!
This is so perfectly said. I just…need a moment…or maybe a few hundred moments.
