* Jesse's grandmother and her minions. In particular, how much joy she takes in how broken he looks [[spoiler: after they kill Tulip.]] It's also just uneasy seeing him so broken considering his normal confident (if a bit careless) self.

** Something that makes it even worse? Jessie's grandmother does have doubts about all the awful things she has done, but GOD tells her she has done right!

Not some fantasy expy, not some overhyped space monster, the God YOU are familiar with, the Judeo-Christian God you were always told was Good, and all the bad things that happen were for a good reason. And he's not even Evil for a higher purpose, he's evil for the same reason ''we'' are - because he's a neurotic, selfish asshole who only cares about himself. We ARE made in His image, and that isnt a good thing.

-->'''Eisenstein'': A Spetsnaz unit was invited on a N.A.T.O special forces exercise in northern Norway. But the weather closed in faster than expected. The team was cut off.

They thought in terms of [[CrazyPrepared method]]... when in fact it was a matter of [[IDidWhatIHadToDo philosophy]]. Don't look round. It was forty degrees below zero. The four-man unit stumbled on an elderly couple stranded in their mountain cabin. They had food in their larder for another week. [[NoPartyLikeADonnerParty The blizzard lasted two]]. You can look now.
