"I never meant to hurt you. What happened was an accident. I’m your friend Vladdy! I’ve always been your friend!"
Can we just talk about this for a minute? Because I feel like we don’t pay enough attention to this part. Everyone watches Phantom Planet and says that Jack was awesome to finally realize the truth about Vlad, but nobody ever talks about how hard that must have been.
This scene says a lot about Jack’s character. As far as his friends and family, he’s loyal and cares a lot for other people. And we’ve seen throughout the show that it’s VERY hard to ever make him truly upset, especially for the people close to him.
But this scene here nails it in hard.
In this part Vlad has just revealed himself to be half ghost, and an evil one at that. Now he and Jack are in this spaceship on the way to stop the Disasteroid, presumably on Jack’s request since it is very unlikely that Vlad would have asked himself.
At this point, Jack’s fully aware of what’s been going on, or at least most of it. He knows that Vlad’s the one who overshadowed him at the college reunion, the one who nearly blew up his ghost portal, the one who manipulated him time and time again. He knows that.
So the fact that he’s still willing to talk to Vlad, is even trying to be friends with him at this point, shows a lot about his character and how easily he’s willing to forgive. Only when he realizes that there’s no point in trying with Vlad does he give up. But the fact that Vlad’s half ghost didn’t bother him, and even everything Vlad said and did up to that point wasn’t a dealbreaker.
And anyone who’s ever had a friend who betrayed them (and most of us have, that’s why we’re on the internet right?) knows exactly how Jack must have felt to have to give up on his best friend and admit that he wasn’t going to chance.
The fact that Jack rarely ever gets upset with anyone made this scene a lot more powerful and definitely makes it hit hard how bad this really hurt him.
this just makes me want to flip a table it’s so perfect
it took me 20 seconds to realise this was not a fucking photo.
I fucking know *flips table*
