the case is going at the same speed of the rocket when it was jettisoned, but the rocket continues to accelerate after that, so thats why the case appears to slow down as if there was wind, if thats what your talking about.

Inertia, plus there's no gravity out there or wind resistance so when you jettison something laterally it should slow down gradually not instantaneously

The animation and “real life” Video of the deployment. Violate Newton’s third law. The faring doors should at least have been visible as they were moving at the same speed as the rocket

The third law is every reaction has an equal and opposite reaction. How does this violate it?

We saw no implosion in the interior of the cargo bay. In order for the fairing to be blasted out, there’d have to also be a blast IN to compensate for the reaction
