*** This is the most likely explanation. Elle may had a begrudging respect (as a warrior) towards Beatrix, and her contempt towards Budd's method of execution may be genuine, but she already had the Black Mamba in the suitcase before Budd told her about the "Texas Funeral".

* Why didn't anybody bother warning Vernita Green that Beatrix was awaken and hunting down the DVAS? Even if after leaving Sofie at the hospital she immediately took a direct flight to California and then drove straight to Vernita's house, that's an 11 hour flight, enough time for Bill to make a call.

** From ThatOtherWiki: "There are only 40 actors accredited to the Crazy 88, however a frame-by-frame count performed by Jonathan R. from Bouncing Ferret Films shows 82: 67 killed, 12 maimed, 1 killed by an axe thrown by somebody else, one possibly killed, one spanked." I guess we should assume that there are only forty in-universe and the rest are stunt people or extras.

** Elle was being a jerk to damage Kiddo's reputation (even in death) in Bill's eyes, by making it looked like Kiddo used an unfair method to bump off Budd.

** Totally agree on this. Many martial art movie plots have a master's student#1 did very awesome but turned evil, and then the master is now honor-bound to train or aid another person to stop student#1. Also can be found in ostensibly non-Asian works like StarWars.

* If Elle killed Budd, because she felt that the Bride deserved a better death than being buried alive, then why was her condition for meeting with Budd "She must suffer to her last breath"?

** At the moment of her awakening, The Bride was being raped, for which the nurse took out the catheter or alarm or whatever, and also how possibly nobody tried to peek in.
As in the span of time between the awakening and the plane, I highly doubt it was only a day (since her got herself money to dress herself and buy a plane ticket.

** ArtisticLicense. She's an almost super-human ActionGirl, so little things like sword gashes and brain damage don't stop her.

*How did the Bride wake up from her coma so quickly, and be able to recover so quickly? She didn't suffer any type of brain damage or anything? I know that she was able to regain use of her legs during the span of only 13 hours in the back of the Pussy Wagon, but even that seems impossible. And how did nobody know that she was out of her coma? Was there no type of alarm or something in the coma ward for if/when patients wake up? And so basically, she was just able to wake up from a coma, and (possibly) the next day just be able to hop on a plane halfway around the world, without suffering from any health problems (physical and mental) whatsoever?

** There's no indication how much time passes. Her hair is long and blonde "four years and six months" ago when she's shot, then she's in the hospital where presumably it grows a bit. The timeline jumps around a bit. We only know that her visit to Esteban is after the Pussy Wagon dies and (presumably) after she kills the first four people on her list. It appears that enough time has passed, maybe a couple of months, between her visit to Esteban and her visit to Bill for the bob to grow out a bit, but it's not as long as it is in the earlier scenes, nor as short as it is when she visits Esteban. She gets the hell beat out of her in each fight, so it's not out of the realm of possibility that she takes some time to heal in between and get ready for the next one.
