Her reaction was entirely natural and if Castro let her off the rower early that seems fair to me. He made the call and I highly doubt he regrets it.
I fully agree that it's a natural reaction. It wouldn't surprise me at all to find that many/most people in that position would want to cry.

Nonetheless, I just still think that it is a natural reaction that you have to have the strength and focus to suppress right there on the spot and save for later. Yes, this is easier said than done. Totally recognize that.

Castro definitely made the right call.
