[quote]He didn’t get rid of her sword so she’d stop “killing.” Ã‚Â He got rid of her sword purely for the money. Ã‚Â Also look at who he was selling the sword to: Elle Driver, who was probably the worst out of the bunch.[/quote]
I admit that my explanation for this is a bit superficial. I’m still contemplating this but I’m still sure there had to be some kind of good motive for selling the sword to Elle. Maybe he wanted to set up a legit life up for himself and that’s why he wanted the money. It looks like he’s trying as hard as he can to go legit.
[quote]The first quote you mentioned, “that women deserves her revenge, and we deserve to die.” Ã‚Â Did you forget the last part? I believe the exact words were, Ã‚Â “But then again, so does she, so we’ll just see, won’t we?”[/quote]
But he admits that he deserves to die. He also doesn’t ask for mercy like Vernita did. Before this, he says that he “doesn’t dodge guilt.”
[quote]He didn’t shoot her with rocksalt so that she wouldn’t die, he shot her with rocksalt so that she’d be in excruciating pain, before he gave her a treacherous death. Ã‚Â He also wanted to confirm with Elle Driver that she wanted her dead before she bought the sword off of him.[/quote]
If he wanted her in excruciating pain, why did he stick the syringe in her arm?
[quote]There is no indictation however, that Budd was trained by Pai Mei, maybe he didn’t know what she was/wasn’t capable of. Ã‚Â The only people that we know for sure that was trained by Pai Mei are: Ã‚Â The Bride, Bill and Elle Driver (sort’ve).
Budd and Bill are brothers. Bill calls them “the boys.” They must have had a close relationship. Bill was raised by Hattori Hanzo, Pai Mei, and that guy Esteban I think his name was. Don’t you think that maybe Budd was raised alongside him? Or at least was maybe taught by Bill. Or Bill might have even told him stories about Pai Mei like he was telling Beatrix about him.
