Actually... I'm wondering if Roy didn't kill Maria, and just switched her dental records. He did ask for all her information before going after her, and he's resourceful enough to do something like that. Not to mention, if he had truly killed her we probably would have seen the act instead of just a sound effect, I think. Maybe he had a corpse from the morgue or something.

Re: Hm.
...and I guess she's probably in the Eastern Sector, alive and well! I should have read more closely before I made the above comment. :D

Re: Hm.
Read 35... I doubt Roy would do that. They have convicted Maria Ross of Hughes' murder.

Hughes was Roy's best friend, and so, along with the order "shoot to kill" (The language in this scantaltion is very dry), so he killed her. Nothing more.

Not showing the body is for dramatic effect, they do it all the time. If you read Saiyuki, vol. 3 (Wierd reference, but it's the only time I can rememeber) when Sanzo shoots someone one, all you see is a tree and birds flying away and it going "BAN" (Bang.) I think that was for suspsence, and so you don't have to see a likeable character on fire.

Re: Hm.
but there's usually a bit more discussion and drama before a character dies, even if the actual killing blow is offscreen.

and what was with roy telling armstrong 'you need a vacation. in the eastern sector. where there are lots of women'...? that was completely out of the blue when they were just talking about maria, and armstrong's reaction was very intense. i think roy was telling armstrong something important there, not just making conversation.

Re: Hm.
He wanted Armstrong to get married/find someone. It was obvious he had feelings for Maria, and he's under alot of stress.
