Added DiffLines:

*** Another possible reason for [[spoiler:child Erik’s response: given that he would’ve grown up alone both during the aftermath of the 1992 Rodney King verdict and during a time Oakland was still known for having high crime rates, there’s the FridgeHorror that Erik saw and/or heard so much crime and people getting beaten or killed growing up that it all became a normal occurrence for him.]]


** That leads to another tearjerker as [[spoiler: Erik meets his father, talking to him about seeing Wakanda. It's obvious that the father is seeing how his death set his son on a path of murder and anger and his reaction clearly MyGodWhatHaveIDone.]]

** Shuri's remark ''really'' becomes HarsherInHindsight after [[spoiler:''Film/AvengersInfinityWar'']]. [[spoiler:This time, T'Challa really IS gone, and there really IS nothing left of him to bury.]]


*** Alternatively, [[spoiler: T'Challa ancestral plane is a vast and beautiful savannah because it echoes the land of the people. When his line were buried they returned to the land of their blood and heritage. They were buried at home and it reflects that.]] Even more heart breaking N'Jobu who served his country and his people. Albeit, in a [[WellIntentionedExtremist more desperate way was killed]] [[spoiler: by his brother and left to be buried in a foreign land. Far away from home and his people.]] He was denied his place in the afterlife [[spoiler: by his brother's shame.]] The reason Killmonger [[spoiler: found his father in the apartment is that he is trapped there by his actions and his brother's choice. Abandoned, like his son was. Except that N'Jobu is abandoned in a foreign afterlife never to see the lands of his people even in death.]]

* [[spoiler: [[AlasPoorVillain Erik's death]]. Even after all he has done, T'Challa still offers to save his life, and his delivery even implies that he ''wants'' to, but Erik refuses, only asking that he be buried at sea like his ancestors who escaped slavery through suicide. When Erik laments over never getting to see the beautiful Wakandan sunsets his father spoke so much about, T'Challa lifts Erik to his feet and carries him out of the mine to grant this last request. In the end, Erik dies peacefully, and T'Challa takes it upon himself to make sure that Erik's more well-meaning goals are achieved by opening up the country and founding charity centers to help support African people across the world.]]

Added DiffLines:

** At the start of that scene, N'Jobu vouched for [[spoiler: Zuri]], telling T'Chaka that he trusts him with his life. [[spoiler: He looks heartbroken when he realizes Zuri was the one who turned him in. Zuri feels responsible for N'Jobu's death for this reason, and is clearly troubled when he recounts the story to T'Challa.]]

Added DiffLines:

** It's made worse by how [[spoiler:Killmonger laughs it off during the whole scene, just to rub salt on Okoye.]]


''Black Panther'' is a somber tragedy spanning two generations of Wakandan royalty. As such, heart-wrenching moments are to be expected.

Added DiffLines:

** [[spoiler:What’s the first thing Erik focuses on in the apartment? The spot where his father died. If his corpse was there, it’s clear he’d break down and hold it like he did as a child.]]


** Just the GilliganCut that revealed: [[spoiler: that little boy who looked up at the Wakandan ship in 1992 was [[UsedToBeASweetKid Erik himself]]. More flashbacks reveal he rushed up there in hopes of asking his father about the Wakandan visitors, never suspecting that (even by accident) said-visitors killed his father.]]

Added DiffLines:

** Before that during their final battle, [[spoiler: there is a brief moment when 'T'Challa accuses Erik of wanting to destroy the world, including Wakanda, Erik angrily shouts back that "The world took ''everything'' away from me! Everything I ever loved!" Tears can clearly be seen in his eyes and his voice clearly breaks at that moment, and while it's broken by his threat to kill every and anyone close or loyal to T'Challa so they share the same pain, it doesn't change the fact that Erik was made into a monster by the actions of others]].
