** There's also Tal Hajus getting bored of the white ape not killing John and Tars, so he flatly tells the guards to ''release another one''. And John's reaction, rather than OhCrap, is just a sigh of exasperation as if to say, "Oh, come ''on''."

* John Carter is thrown into a cell with a badly beaten Tars Tarkas, who's too weak even to stand but comforts himself that at least his daughter is in the afterlife with her mother as John promised. John then hesitantly explains that his daughter is alive and also a prisoner -- an enraged Tars Tarkas [[BerserkButton gets to his feet]] and starts throttling John. Then collapses on top of him from over-exertion.
