These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Why Don't You Just Shoot Him?: Rickie, has a machete and a mission to end the Deadgirl once and for all. Then he's distracted by Joann and J.T. gives him the runaround while circling around him. In that circling he passed up several opportunities to decapitate the still unconscious/docile girl, thus foiling J.T.'s monstrous plan to create more Deadgirls, and saving Joann from a Fate Worse Than Death.
