Thane’s alternate last words.
I kid, I kid.
To be honest, I thought Thane’s death could have been handled much worse. He got an epic fight with Kai Leng, a touching moment with both Shepard and his son, and for the most part he seemed true to his usual subtle flair. What bothered me was how little the romance changed things. I enjoy the scene much more with Thane unromanced as a result (and I am more of a Garrusmancer in any case).
It would have been nice if people acknowledged Thane’s existence after he died. Especially if he was Shepard’s romance. Alas, no.
Honestly this couldn’t even happen in my Thanemancer playthrough, because Kaidan got Virmire’d. It’s okay though; Leah Shepard took a green shiny ship across the sea to her green lizard lover and left everyone else to deal with the Kurzweilian bullshite.
on my first playthrough I accidentally left Kaidan on Virmire so I romanced Liara. To be honest I expected her to sabotage whole mission and give me to the Reapers when I turned her down to end romance with Thane :T
but this, this is exactly how Thane’s romance was handled in ME3 >:C
