Re: 'All Our Yesterdays' theory
They may have tried to connect Spock's actions to how Vulcans acted five-thousand years ago but I think his behavior is driven far more by the smokin' hot Babe and the aborted Pon-Farr from season one.
His mind couldn't cope with the situation so his emotions started coming to the surface with force.
