Oh, and the eyes here are just stunning. And the duality!! Utterly confused and freaked out Mortal-Jareth getting that cruel echo of pure Goblin-kinginess.... No lie, I am fangirling those close-ups. And the symbolism in the next panels is quite exciting too, and what wonderful segue-ing...!
The mirror (fae, "dark") him... and he was even stabbed with a sword once and was only mildly annoyed by it (in perspective: he was more annoyed that he couldn't have his dramatic death scene). So THAT side of him is protected by the really old rules (so probably only cold iron could hurt him much) AND the new ones (what can you show in a PG movie).
Or another fae could hurt him, I'm guessing. Elf-shot and all that. Notice the similarity between where the hand digging into his wound and wound around his chest are in the same places as Not!Sarah's hands?
Yes. I noticed. I also noticed that Not!Sarah's hands aren't mirrored on Fae!Jareth. So that's either NOT a mirror image or just a mistake but I think Ashe is simply too good to make mistakes like that... so whatever Jareth sees in the mirror is not a reflection.
I didn't say it's not not!Sarah. I just said that if the placement of the hands isn't a mistake then Jareth is lookink into a "parallel world". Fae!Jareth's stance mirrors Mortal!Jareth's (they even have opposite eye covered) but the grabbing hands are exactly the same place...
