I’m actually kinda asking the fandom a question here believe it or not, but for some odd reason…I can’t really figure out Hans. Like, he seemed to really care about both Anna and Elsa since he told everyone to search for her and defended Elsa and tried to ask her to stop the winter in the nicest way possible. And when he made that face at Anna when she walked away while he was under the boat.
I guess that I just don’t understand…why he’d actually show a sense of what seemed to be him not manipulating her… Also cuz I just sort of wonder…if he wanted to get to the throne and knew that he had to marry Anna, why leave her to die if that would through off the wedding and not allow him to be King? I mean, I thought that him marrying her would make him King, but then he decided to let her die? Why do that in the first place if he could just kill her and become King rather than seduce her? Perhaps there’s something I’m missing…because I feel like I need answers. Whether its from the Fandom or from the Writers themselves…XDDD
i think what was going on was that he wasn’t just trying to get anna to love him, but the whole kingdom to do so. like, everyone’s all, “see how wonderfully he treats anna and did you hear how kind he was towards that monstrous elsa? this guy is really great, he gives out blankets and warm drinks when we are all freezing.”
so now they see how much he loved anna and how much anna loved him and how kind and gentle he was then when they hear that he and anna exchanged vows right before her death they’ll be far more willing to accept him than they would’ve been if he just showed up and said “hey, heard your queen and princess died, can i apply for the job?”
basically, he’s manipulating everyone through some really good acting. he puts forth this selfless image because of selfish desires.
that’s my interpretation of it all, anyway
