I'll admit, I haven't read the book, but I want to know something about Gillian's death. People seem to take issue with her death by toothbrush, but by and large, even with her biotics, isn't she just a human? A sneak attack with a toothbrush-turned-shiv should be plenty to take down someone who doesn't have any sort of defenses. That kind of thing might be considered absurd with a krogan, but not a human.

I think it's a combination of the absurdity of a toothbrush as a murder weapon (although one hears of much stranger improvised weapons, especially in prison where people have to get creative) and the general way her death comes across as a bridge drop. It's plausible, but that doesn't make it well executed. No pun intended.
