I'm talking about cinematic video "Believe in me", when Kerrigan, already transformed into Primal Queen of Blades, comes into prison cell where Jim Raynor is being held. This gives me several questions:
In the beginning of video we see Jim Raynor sitting in his prison cell. There are marines running behind the door (their feet are shown between bottom of the door and the floor). Meanwhile the door metal starts screaming and in a few seconds the door is thrown inside the cell.
[ANSWERED] 1) Obviously, Queen of Blades uses her psionic powers to break the door. If we imagine these powers as an electromagnetic field (like in microwave oven), everything standing between Kerrigan and the door must burn and get fried (just as in oven). Why are marines still running through this field and not get fried? They are like cockroaches running through the laser beam - shouldn't they get burned?
I like the answer from Gwaihir:

My speculation: I think that psionic powers "travel" in sub-dimensional space. It looks like Kerrigan emanates her "psi-push", psi-waves "burrow" from this plane of existence into "parallel reality", "crawl" to the target, then "unburrow" into "real world" and hit the target.
[ANSWERED] 2) The door gets crushed inside the prison cell. Why does Kerrigan let this happen? What if the cell was much less in size and Jim was not to the left of the door, but right behind this door? He could have got himself smashed by huge piece of metal junk and "rescue" mission would have ended in the person being rescued (Raynor) killed by rescuer (Kerrigan). Why not take precautions, like stopping the door in the air telekinetically (remember Zeratul being hung by Kerrigan in the air when she found him on his leviathan ship)?

3) When Jim Raynor sees Kerrigan in her zergified body, what does he mean by asking "What have you done?". Does he mean:
3.1) "Kerrigan, I sacrificed everything to make you human again and you threw it away and turned back to Zerg? I'm so upset that I was wrong about thinking I can rescue you."
--- OR ---
3.1.1) "Kerrigan, I sacrificed everything to make you human again and you threw it away and turned back to Zerg? I'm afraid that you are playing with fire: Zerg nature of Queen of Blades might take control over your will and you'll become reckless bloody monster once again."
--- OR ---
3.2) Since later Raynor replies to Kerrigan's "What I had to..." with "Tell that to Fenix", so, maybe his "What have you done?" really means "Queen of Blades, now I see that I it was not Kerrigan who returned as human, it was your mind but in human body. What have you done to Kerrigan - the person I loved? Why toy with me and give me a kiss (remember the video when they reunite and going to leave the lab)?"
--- OR ---
3.3) Raynor sees Queen of Blades and understands that Kerrigan - the woman he loved - is lost completely - only Queen of Blades personality is left. So he asks Queen of Blades, not Kerrigan: "You, foul monster, you killed millions of people, you have treacherously killed my Protoss friend Fenix. Now you eradicate all people in this facility only to make sure that I will die by your own hand?" But this contradicts what she says him before he asks "What have you done?". When she entered, she said: "I had to let you out". So, maybe Raynor does not see the situation this way?
[ANSWERED] 4) Why Kerrigan does not act like the loving woman who came to rescue the person she loves? For example, why does not she rush into the prison cell and not fall on her knees before him and not hug him crying something like: "Oh Jim, my love, you are alive! I have finally found you. I thought Mengsk killed you so I sacrificed all you gave me just to make sure you will be revenged. I am so sorry... Now let's get you out of here". Why she enters the prison cell, showing off her "wings", giving him reason to make wrong decisions ("Is that Queen of Blades? Or Kerrigan I knew as ghost? Why did she come here, to kill me herself? To rescue?")
Kerrigan isn't a love-sick fool... sure she loves him, but she's got something slightly more to her than just 'run into his arms and simper like a puppy'.
In short, WHAT THE HELL IS HAPPENING IN THAT PRISON CELL? If someone of you are psychologist or psychiatrist, your professional point of view on this situation is highly appreciated.
P.S.: I know she put the pistol into his hands herself. Does she want to show him that she is still Kerrigan he knew - a human - and test his faith in her as in human?
