Virtue Win’s in the End

Beatrix Kiddo is not kidding around when it comes to her reuniting with her daughter and killing everyone who did her wrong. While taking the lives of others she is making her happiness come true. According to (Greene, Mohammad, Robinson, 2007, para. 9) this killing is doing more harm than good for all the characters seeking revenge. The article suggests that the DiVAS have no real purpose in killing people other than if they have a issue with what someone says, does, or simply difference of opinion. In Beatrixs’ case she has legitimate issues with the DiVAS but she’s doing so at the expense of people and thing’s connected to them; for example Vernita Green. Go-Go decided to kill a man at a bar when she asks him if he wanted to have sex with her and he said yes. She gave a unjustifiable reason to kill him.

At the end of Vol. 2 Bill says to Beatrix, ” Superman did not become Superman; Superman was born Superman. When Superman wakes up in the morning, he’s Superman. His alter ego is Clark Kent. His outfit with the big red ‘S,’ that’s the blanket he was wrapped in as a baby when the Kents found him. Those are his clothes…That’s the costume Superman wears to blend in with us. Clark Kent is how Superman views us. And what are the characteristics of Clark Kent? He’s weak, he’s unsure of himself…he’s a coward. Sort of like Beatrix Kiddo and Mrs. Tommy Plympton. (Tarantino, 2003)”.

This quote shows that Bill still thinks he’s in control of The Bride and she’s weak no matter how many people she killed. When she kills Bill his last words to her was, ‘You’re not a bad person. You’re a terrific person. You’re my favorite person. (Tarantino,  2004)”.
