    Last Week: This is why you don't mess with Russian Paratroops.

    This Week: The Sucession Wars begin after the Star League is unable to decide who should succeed the Camerons. The Draconis Combine becomes a hot bed of internal politics.

    This episode could have been titled: "The desperate, and the foolish."

    Meanwhile, on Sword Art Online...

    You get what you pay for.

    No, no, we'll stop our meeting, you carry on with your phone call.

    So Batman isn't your thing, then?.

    There is one word that can sum up Hotel Moscow tactics. "Thorough."

    "Arsenic cocktails..." So, Revy can be creative.

    Seems like the kinda guy who likes to think with his gun...literally AND euphemistically.

    I'd wish him dead, but I've seen this show already.

    You are given Chaka way too much credit. His gun is likely smarter than him.

    Yeah, beating the crap out of the guy who she is the bodyguard of is a REAL surefire way to score with her.

    Oh. We meet again.

    Yea. Anyone with an IQ of room temperature or higher, could tell by Revy's comments, a few seconds beforehand, that she was in a killing mood. Literally. And I admire the restraint that both Revy and Balakia showed in that scene. It shows that Revy has emotionally matured some since the beginning of the series.

    I don't think he had a choice when Revy first took him hostage.

    Washimine, huh?

    An organized crime ring in the hands of a high school girl. Only in Japan.

    If your father told you to jump off a bridge, would you?

    HOTEL. MOSCOW. DOES. NOT. SCREW. AROUND.

    You the other guy clearly realizes what is boss is doing, and is going to happen. And he tried to stop it. He is likely the more intelligent one in the group.

    Balalaika continues to prove just how much of a ruthless boss she is.

    Balalaika just earned some more nightmare points.

    Balalaika is the kind of mob boss who brings a thermonuclear device to a gunfight.

    And now she is embracing the night.

    Miss Yu-Gi-Oh Washingmachine is the dullest character we've had to follow in a while. Bring back Roberta!
