To me it seems that the killing, since Hamlet thought he had killed the king, had a cathartic effect, since he does calm down (or rather seems detached from the tragic reality) for a little bit, but then works himself up again.
]I do wonder, if he really did see the ghost while he was with his mother, or if that was an invention of his mind. After all, plenty of other people have seen the Ghost, but Gertrude can't.
I want to know why the ghost "steals away" at that point. If it is a figment of Hamlet's imagination, why did the ghost desert him at that point? As to the other people that have seen the ghost, at first I thought maybe they were just humoring Hamlet, but Horatio's character is not such that he would go along with that (is there a remote possibility of that?). (I'm still pondering Horatio from last week...)
Overall, I spend way too much time wondering about that ghost! ;-)
