The Bride continues her vengeance quest against her ex-boss, Bill, and his
Well, for Dharma reflection's sake, here is what I have to say... [Warning:
Spoilers ahead!] I think Kiddo (Beatrix played by Uma
Thurman) should not have killed Bill. Why? Because he brought up her kiddo
(BB) lovingly, while waiting for her to awake, while never sowing discord in
between. It was a clear case of miscommunication (plus lots of anger, jealousy,
yadda yadda...) on both sides. But Kiddo could not let go the grudge even after
knowing the truth.
Well... what are the consequences of Kiddo's bloody
rampage by the end of Vol. 2 despite having killed Bill? Rumour is out that
there will be Vol. 3. Hey! Is this not the bride's "final cut"? There will
be revenge... grudges beared by villians and their offspring left alive...
Imagine living your life fretting vengeance being inflicted by strangers upon
you any time... Hell! Karmically, will she who lives by the sword die by the
sword... or worse? Let's call off the kill bill on both sides. Let there be no
personal grudges or wars. Let there be no bloodshed anywhere. A true
truce please! We don't need another bloody Vol. 3.
Let me leave you with
some oft-quoted quotes below, inspired by the above:
"Hatred is never appeased by hatred in this
world; by non-hatred (love) alone is hatred appeased. This is an eternal
"Victory begets enmity while the
defeated dwell in pain. Happily the peaceful live, having discarded both
victory and defeat."
-The Buddha (The Dhammapada) -shian
