There was a payoff: It is part of Spock's journey. It is used to make Spock understand how Kirk saw him, how important Kirk thought he was.
Kirk: I wanted you to know why I couldn't let you die. Why I went back for you. (referencing opening scene of the movie, and later scene before the command meeting)

Spock: Because you are my friend. (Aha! Spock finally gets it!)

That's the payoff.

I simply don't understand how one could miss this.
