Re: Why doesn't T'Pau tell Kirk the fight is to the death?

If T'Pau had mentioned that critical info in passing, you'd never have gotten the dramatic third act finish. That's the reason. So T'Pau's ''lawfully accepted'' line regarding the challenge is an utter crock. Still a highly effective episode....
Yes, of course that's the REAL reason. I was thinking there might be an in-character reason, as well. But the real reason could be the only one.
