: 1) Was Kiddo a hero? I'd say more anti-hero, in the mould of Clint Eastwood's Man With No Name.

: 2) Was it right for Kiddo to leave Bill, and disappear? The father of the child? Would you bring up a kid with a man who wanted to kill you and killed your husband?

: 3) Was Bill necessarily wrong in characterizing Kiddo as a killer first and foremost? And the fact she enjoyed her work?
He's not wrong but then that's how he moulded her.

: 4) How would you react if you show up in El Paso to find your "dead lover" pregnant, not dead, and getting married to someone like that?
And told to pretend to be her father. Yes, that all sucks, but that's what therapy is for, not an army of assasins.

: 5) B.B. - Anyone notice how Bill was in front of her? See the crusts come off her sandwich? Notice the big knife used? The story of Emilio and watching Shogun Assassin? Good point. And that's why he mustn't live- Because he would have made BB a killer too.

: I pose these questions because it's interesting to think about who's the "good guy" and who is the "bad guy." Are the bad guys always bad? Are the good guys always good? Maybe there's good and evil in everyone?

This is what's known as "Moral ambiguity".
