in consequence of the missive, GR: a shot at it., penned by Jezkalyn
He does say to Horatio and Marcellus to pay no heed if, in the future, he were to put on "an antic disposition". This shows the idea was already brewing in his mind.
But, I think an arguement could be made that, after seeing the Ghost and retiring, the ghastliness of it all struck him anew and he became horrorstruck and agitated and went to Ophelia for comfort.
You believe he is putting on the first demonstration of his "antic disposition"... I can see that, and you may be right. Perhaps it's my wish that Hamlet not appear to treat Ophelia even worse than I had originally thought that makes me shy away from it. ;-)
