Raynor needed proof that Kerrigan was not the same old Queen of Blades, and he didn't get it until he overheard her conversation with Valerian.
Which one? I remember this dialog:
Valerian: I didn't ask you to spawn zerglings!
Kerrigan: That's the problem with zergs: they don't always do what you want.
Shouldn't this be read as "You asked me not to create zerglings - I spawned zerglings = I don't do what you want = I am Zerg"?
Kerrigan did that to show Valerian that he could not contain or control the zerg without dire ramifications.
And Kerrigan became the Primal Queen of Blades For a few reasons.
1) Kerrigan wanted to be zerg but she Also Loved Jim, it was a tearing of her inner self. And Honestly she needed to be what she became.
2) Kerrigan knew from Prophecy that the only slimmer of hope of keeping the Swarm from Amon was to become the Primal Queen of Blades, thus securing the will of the Swarm.
3) Kerrigan Wanted revenge for the temporary knowledge of Raynor's supposed death, She wanted Mengsk to Scream in agony before death, and on a more Benevolent note Kerrigan knew Mengsk needed to be "Dethroned" for the Betterment of all species. Becoming the Primal Zerg was the only way to Dethrone that Son of a !@#$%.
4) Kerrigan Needed Purpose beyond the Fulfillment of Love between her and Raynor, Sub conscious fulfillment, it is mostly what drove her to become the queen of blades, Deep down She liked the Power and the Ability to radically Influence the future to her own set of new found Morals.
Raynor was Cold towards Kerrigan not because of the Torture or fractured mental state that torture renders you in, It was because for 4 years he hoped in the bottom of a bottle to see her human again, Fantasized about her being his while hating what she was. A bit of his love standards were impossible based off of wanting it for so long, I doubt she could have lived up to his expectations, Regardless Raynor was disgusted with her because he has extreme prejudice against the zerg for good reason.
Every time he sees the zerg, he sees those who killed Friends, who took his mate, Who killed Fenix and would have killed every last person in the Universe for their essence eventually. Raynor Didn't realize that the swarms Ulterior Motive was 100% dependent on its Leader, rather than the General Consensus, The Queen or King of blades or the Overmind's rule is supreme and Impossible to deny.
The Zerg had the Ability and Physical Dimension to control the Zerg on all their worlds.
Point being, Raynor would most likely never see past how the zerg were with the old Queen of Blades, Not to mention many of Kerrigans tactics were as brutal and were very similar to her old tactics.
In the End though, When Raynor recognized that her Soul and Spirit were still the same as it was with her human self, He looked past that and chose to love her in any form, obviously you can tell this from the Final Cut Scene.
