See this GIF? Look at Tony’s face. The way he closes his eyes while they’re stinging with tears from seeing the woman he loves, the one woman he can’t live without, in the hands of his enemy. A man who could take her life at any moment which, at the same time, would take Tony’s life. If you look closely, you can even see his head shake just a little bit while in Aldrich’s tight grasp. He knows he failed, he knows he’s at Aldrich’s mercy which Tony hates so much, but he can’t hep it. He can’t be sarcastic, he can’t be snarky, and he can’t be threatening…All because Aldrich has his woman. His life, his heart and his soul. One wrong move, one wrong word, and she could get even more hurt or die. Not to mention, the amount of pain she’s in rendered Tony completely weak because he can’t do anything to save her. He’s forced to watch her suffer. Seeing Pepper, the woman he loves most and the woman he vowed to keep out of harm’s way, is in danger. She’s in pain and her life is at stake and he can’t do anything to help her in that moment; despite promising he would always protect her. Not even when she yells, “Tony, make it stop!” while the Extremis virus is infecting her body.
Aldrich has Pepper and therefore has Tony, both emotionally and physically. Tony is forced to watch as the woman he loves is being injected with a life threatening virus that could possibly kill her and all he can do is hope and pray that her body accepts it so she doesn’t detonate, while hoping and praying that he will soon get free so he can go and save the woman that matters most in his life.
That’s all that is going through his mind: Pepper.
