* How comes Elizabeth, who spent her whole life in a tower, is not the least bit disturbed that she's now doing exactly what her father forbid her to do? Why doesn't she have a brief FreakOut ala ''Disney/{{Tangled}}''?

** Honestly I read Elizabeth collapsing herself into one person to do this thing as a combination of reasons. 1) She felt personally responsible for this iteration of Sally since her actions prevented Bookerstock from (presumably) saving her or attempting to save her. 2) She could kick off the events of BioShock 1. and 3) she could ultimately kill herself. By this point it's pretty obvious Liz has become something of a DeathSeeker. Remember when she was going after Bookerstock one of her points was that she felt everything from every iteration of herself. Losing her finger, dying, being tortured by Comstock, etc. and it was also pointed out that this took a huge toll on her mind (which was still human, despite her power). Put together I don't think it's much of a stretch to imagine the fact that she would die at the end was a part of her plan all along.

*** They certainly didn't do a good job not hurting her in my playthrough, where I specifically saw her running behind me and take several bullets to her back, blood-splatter and all.

*** Except that altimeter in the rocket bringing you to Columbia shows 15,000 feet, so MST3KMantra seems to be in effect.

*** That's why her built-in Booker told her about the leap of faith. She didn't EXACTLY know why obtaining Ace in the hole is important, but her visions had shown her it WAS somehow important.

*** Rapture was going to fall one way or another. Between the addictive LegoGenetics, unrestrained Objectivist capitalism, mass poverty, and almost complete lack of laws, they were living on borrowed time as it was. Ryan getting rid of Fontaine only staved off the inevitable mass bloodbath for a bit, and Elizabeth bringing him back really didn't do much but accelerate the oncoming civil war.

** Better answer: he does, just not to the same degree. Elizabeth expresses outright surprise in the Hall of Heroes when Booker is able to see the potential tears. You only develop this after spending several hours cross-dimension (perhaps a few days in-story, they never seem to stop to sleep). Also, the Rapture-Comstock was able to survive the multiversal Bookercide due to having hopped dimensions, leading to Elizabeth hunting him down personally.

** There is one more thing. Columbia was a heavily publicized project commissioned by the US government. It could have been built on land and then propelled into the sky. Rapture, by contrast, was built ''in secret'' by a relatively small team -- and they had to work at the bottom of the sea, without the chance to assemble the buildings on land and then sink them.

** Comstock isn't older; they're the same age. Comstock just appears older because of the long-term effects of playing with the tears; namely, artificial aging and mass cancer. I'd imagine its just a quirk of the tears.
