That's a good point. Yet, even though I may be reaching, I can see him walking away like that as him saying, "Our trust, our respect, is no more. I don't know what you are."
If he had put a bullet through her head (even if non fatal), I could see that as, "You... Sarah... is truly dead. You are nothing more than a monster now."
That may be splitting hairs... but I think there is enough of a difference there for it to matter.
If he had shot her, I don't think she would have returned to the leviathan a mess. I think she would have gone cold, having lost the last link to redemption. Her being a mess meant her heart was still very much alive.
Technically she DID believe she lost the link to redemption, but because Raynor didn't shoot her, she had to honor his belief there was more to her than a killer.
