Can we talk about this for a second? This is right after Pitch asks who is gonna protect the Guardians. Right before Jamie and the kids step forward, there’s this scene between North and Jack.

Jack has his hand on North’s, giving him a look like he was telling him something very important. And look at North’s face. It’s full of worry and concern, like he’s pleading Jack to stop doing whatever he’s trying to do.

Jack must have been telling him that he was going to step forward and sacrifice himself to Pitch. He could’ve been saying something like “It’s going to be okay. I’ll do this.” And North is trying to tell him no.

If the kids hadn’t have stepped forward, what exactly would Jack have done to stop Pitch?
