Let’s talk about this scene really quick.
At first I simply dismissed it as a bit of tension between the two sisters. I mean, obviously Anna has some pent up anger at the fact that for 13 years Elsa did not open the door. Elsa, on the other hand, is upset at the sudden outburst.
But in reality, at this point in the story Anna really does not know what true love is. She thinks that true love means meeting the prince of her dreams and marrying him. She doesn’t realize that love means putting yourself before others, like Elsa did for 13 years.
The hurt in Elsa’s eyes is not caused by the insinuation that she doesn’t know what love is because she hasn’t met the “right” person yet. She is upset because the person that is hurting her is that same person she sacrificed herself for all of those years.
Elsa knows what love is. Elsa has demonstrated it for longer than a decade by locking herself in one room to make sure that her sister is not hurt.
And you know what the worst part is? That up to this point I also expected Anna to end up with Hans, I wanted them to be together because it did seem like true love.
Even though I was shown Elsa’s love over and over again, I didn’t think she knew what true love was.
If there is anything wrong with Elsa, it is the fact she always loved too much.
