Do you guys not see the role reversal happening? Gon’s lost his mind by this point. He was almost willing to kill Pitou and let Komugi die. While the chimera ants are learning to feel human emotions, Gon is losing his. The chimera ants execution starts when they decide to leave humans alone and live without hurting them.
I guess knowing that Kite had earned the full respect of Ging was enough for Gon to admire Kite- plus maybe Gon liked Kite's demeanor and believed they could have become closer over time if it weren't for Pitou
she doesnt give a shit about the girl, neither the other 2 royal guards, she is like this in this episode because of the situation they are in, she knows that Mereum (the King) left to fight the 2 old mans (she doesnt know he only fights Netero, which makes the situation even worse) and the King's orders are absolute, the King for them is like a God.
