THE DL: The Bride continues her roaring rampage of revenge, working her way through the remaining members of the Death List Five (Elle Driver, Budd) before confronting the man who truly started it all.
RESIDENT BAMF: BLEEEEP (I won’t dare reveal The Bride’s real name!), of course. Girl digs herself out of a deeply buried grave with just her iron fist. Later, she rips off an appendage with one hand. And that’s all before implementing the most badass move of them all: the Five Point Palm Exploding Heart Technique.
WHAT A QT! (CLASSIC QUENTIN MOMENT): As The Bride finally confronts Bill, he slaps her with a wordy, poignant and pop culture-soaked spiel, comparing her story to the mythology of Clark Kent and Superman.
PLAY THE FUNKY MUSIC: I’m tempted to name Bill’s favourite soul song of the ’70s. But since it doesn’t actually appear in the movie, I’m going to go with Ennio Morricone’s “L’Arena.” The stirring instrumental, originally used in the 1968 Sergio Corbucci film The Mercenary, elevates the Bride’s brilliant underground escape to levels of unspeakable inspiration.
You’re not a bad person. You’re a terrific person. You’re my favorite person. But every once in a while, you can be a real cunt.
