NOTE: Because of many people’s similar reaction to my previous post, I feel the need to clarify that this series isn’t intended to have a Hans-apologist kind of vibe. My purpose here is not to excuse his behaviour in the film or to get people to pity him. I just wanted to add a little bit of ‘depth’ where it was suggested there were stories behind his actions. I’m basically trying to figure out a possible background and progression that could explain why and how he was shaped into a villain, if we accept some villains are made rather than born. But I get some people want this character to be evil for the sake of being evil, and that is completely fine! So please don’t get too upset over these, keep in mind this is just my take on a hypothetic past, loosely based on hints from the movie and what Frozen directors have revealed so far.
Seriously though, as soon as Alvin threatened to kill Astrid, Hiccup was prepared to actually murder him! We all know that Hiccup isn’t the type of guy who would take another persons life, but as soon as Alvin held Astrid over a cliff, he was ready to get his hands soiled with blood for her sake.
Even John Sanford quoted his determination saying that he was ready to do anything to get her back at that moment. Meaning, that the possibility of him actually murdering Alvin at that particular moment is extremely high.
Look at his face!: It goes from feeling helpless to murderous when he gives Toothless the command to kill Alvin with the Plasma Blast in order to rescue Astrid from her death.
