In the second part of Quentin Tarantino’s revenge opus, we see a flashback of the pregnant Bride (Uma Thurman) rehearsing for her wedding. Her former boss Bill (David Carradine) — who trained the Bride to be one of his killers in the Deadly Viper Assassination Squad — drops in to speak with the Bride, his former lover, before she gets hitched. They have a tense and terse conversation on the porch of the Texas church before she introduces him to her new lover. The scene turns into a bloodbath in which the Bride and her wedding guests are left for dead. The opening scene of Kill Bill: Vol. 1 shows the Bride after the attack and just before Bill, unwilling to let her start a new life, shoots her in the head. This Vol. 2 scene serves as an explainer for that jarring moment.
