Guys, I realized Pitch’s center…
He’s a unifier
Just like how he wants to be united with his daughter, He’s been instilling fear upon the children in an attempt to bring them together to try and fight their nightmares.
He’s been trying to make them realize that even though the world is dark and bleak, they can fight the nightmares as long as they’re together.
HE INSTINCTIVELY BROUGHT THE GUARDIANS BACK TOGETHER IN ORDER TO ACCEPT JACK FROST.
KOZMOTIS IS FIGHTING THE FEARLINGS INTERNALLY.
