"It’s okay, Elsa will thaw it."
So Even though Kristoff says that ice is his life, the Snow Queen herself scares him.
Before meeting her, he doesn’t trust her. He is surprised at the amount of trust Anna is giving her. I don’t think that he thinks that Elsa is actually going to thaw the land. He probably, in the corner of his mind, thinks that maybe she is evil and that Anna is just too blind with love to see it.
After meeting her, he is officially afraid. Yes, her castle was beautiful, but once he saw he get stresses and saw the ice creeping up the walls, he started to worry. As you see in the next gifs, he is more afraid and worried than before. He now knows how powerful Elsa is and what she can really do with her powers.
And all of that brings me to the last gif. In the last gif Kristoff sees this blizzard that is obviously made by Elsa’s magic. But this time, he’s not afraid. Why? Because his fear doesn’t matter anymore.
Anna is in there, and even though the blizzard might be deadly, he would go to the heart of it just too bring Anna to safety.

Could we talk about this for a bit, please?
This scene pains me deeply. Why? Well, Hans is being a total douche in the name of power, Elsa has completely up on life and is totally okay with Mr. Douchey Pans sending a sword through her, and then, well, then there’s Anna. Out of the three, her participation hurts the most.
In the outtake song “Life’s Too Short (Reprise),” Anna regrets being “so desperate to be loved I only ever thought of me.” This song was supposed to take place a few minutes preceding this GIF, as she froze, alone, in that cold room after having been betrayed by the only person she was convinced still loved her.
At that point her words are a bitter realization, and they sting even more accompanied by Elsa’s lyrics: “I’ve frozen out the only friend I’ll ever know…I wish that I had been there for her long ago.” The girls in this scene are both thoroughly convinced the other could never forgive them It’s all over, and they’ll die never getting the chance to reconcile.
Then, Anna spots something in the distance. She sees the man that betrayed and left her for dead, bringing down his sword on a hopeless, better-off-dead queen. Soon Anna will freeze over and die. Her only hope is still a good ten meters off.
At this point, Anna could a) wait for true love’s kiss to save her from the curse, or b) jump in front of that sword. Except, Anna has no idea when she’ll freeze. She could freeze before Kristoff makes it, she could freeze before she makes it to Elsa, or she could jump in front of that sword and still not freeze—making the last sensation that of a sword halving her, and the last thought, I love you.
In that split second, Anna was forced to choose who she loved more. Elsa, or herself.
What hurts more is the Hans probably saw Anna jump in front of him in time to stop himself, but he kept the momentum. He would kill both of the sisters to get what he wanted.
