Now I Have Seen It  
Do I need to tell you there are spoilers under the cut? Didn't think so.



I said to Casey earlier this evening, that from the before the cut reactions on my f'list, my bet was either Ianto or Rhys got killed off. I was leaning towards Ianto only because I wasn't sure people would be *that* upset if it were Rhys.

Now I know for sure, I guess my reaction is, it's Torchwood, it's to be expected. Sorry to all the Ianto fans out there, because I was pretty upset last year when Tosh got the axe, so I know how you feel.

Overall, another strong episode. Wondering how they'll get themselves out of this pickle, or even of they will. Maybe the end of tomorrow's they'll be dead or dying and Jack will be left to wander the Earth alone. Or he can hang out with Methos since they seem to have so much in common.

I cried for a good half hour.
Now I feel very very tired.

I saw something like this coming from back when RTD said he was a Joss Wedon fan, but . . . yeesh! If Ianto stays dead then RTD's superglued to my can't-trust-enough-to-suspend-disbelief list.

I didn't know he was, but boy things make much more sense now I do!

Was it worth the wait for Nin?

Well, it was for me! :)

lol, nice that she waited, eh? Now you don't have to come up with a suitable revenge, lol.

Not really [g] For me, it was just Torchwood being true to form. They killed my favourite character off last year, so I guess Ianto being killed wasn't as much of a blow as it is to others.

Yes, I realize I'm in the teensiest minority there :)

Yeah, once your fave is gone nothing else much surprises, huh?

It's safe to say unless Uncle Rusty fixes it with one of his Big Red Reset Buttons I won't be watching anymore Torchwood. After they killed off Owen and Tosh in "Exit Wounds" I was only watching it for Jack and Jack/Ianto. They have shown me with this move that Jack alone won't hold me. It's too many losses. I have a limit to the number of character deaths I can take in a given universe, and Owen, Tosh and Ianto will definitely be one too many.

Sorry it upset you so much. Once Tosh was gone, I lost most of my emotional attachment to the show. I always did like Jack better on Doctor Who than on TW. Strange, but true :)

Sorry it upset you so much.

I am completely gutted. I haven't even been close to this bad since they killed off Cole Turner for the last time on Charmed and this is so much worse. I still haven't managed to get to sleep. I should have some water. I'm getting dehydrated.

Once Tosh was gone, I lost most of my emotional attachment to the show.

I was one of those rare souls that actually liked Owen. I wept when he was killed the first time in "Reset". I thought I took "Exit Wounds" badly, but it wasn't close to this bad. Jack/Ianto meant--means so much to me.

I've loved Jack across the board. I flew out to Chicago for Torchsong just hoping to get to meet John Barrowman. That didn't work out like I'd hoped, but now I'm so glad I did get to meet Gareth David Lloyd there. Someday I might actually get my pictures from the photo-ops I had with him. Ianto's death hurts like it was Methos or Jack. I just... *starts to cry again* ...I'm gonna go get that drink.

Or he can hang out with Methos since they seem to have so much in common.

Well that's where I'm going to be going in my AU - a bit of mutual comfort and grieving.

I had about 2 and half hours sleep - just couldn't get any more - and I have a bloody shift in work to get through first, before the last ep. I feel like I've lost a good friend, damn them for making me care so much! I was almost this bad after Donna and Tosh, but not quite, as I didn't have muses for them and that makes a difference.
Ithithildyn on July 10th, 2009 07:21 pm (UTC)
You need to get to bed earlier tonight no matter what happens in tonight's ep!

I haven't seen it yet, but I heard about Ianto from a friend who was in shock, anger and denial. Considering her glee at the death(s) of Owen last season, I'm finding it hard to be properly compassionate now.

This.

It's all fine and dandy when they kill off the characters they don't like, but gods forbid it's someone they care about.

Ithithildyn on July 10th, 2009 07:23 pm (UTC)
I don't understand glee at a death. I was never a huge Ianto fan, but I understand how upsetting it is for those who are. If they kill off Gwen or Rhys tonight, or both, then I'll be drowning in tissues most likely :)

*Repeats.*

"I was one of those rare souls that actually liked Owen. I wept when he was killed the first time in 'Reset'."

*Hugs.*

It's just... like I also said, "I thought I took 'Exit Wounds' badly, but it wasn't close to this bad. Jack/Ianto meant--means so much to me." It isn't just Ianto, it's accumulative. I said it before and I'll say it again, "I have a limit to the number of character deaths I can take in a given universe, and Owen, Tosh and Ianto will definitely be one too many."

Bless you, yes, I did notice that line earlier. I wouldn't go so far as to say I liked Owen, but he fascinated me. I wanted time to explore his contradictions, reconcile his pain and see him gain some measure of peace and acceptance of his condition on this side of the grave. They stole that from me when he was shot.

Not only was his psyche interesting, but that body! {roll of eye with appreciation}

Sometimes, he was almost human, I wanted see that become more common. Sometimes he was a total arse.

I was sorry when he died. I had hoped he and Tosh could heal one another's pain.

It took me over an hour to calm down enough to sleep (I had to watch the midnight repeat, so it was about 2.30am by then!). I think the last time I was this upset was when...well, when the Highlander episode that never happened was on *cough cough*

I really feel like they are heading to an end with this.

I'm not so much gutted about his death, more the manner of his death. It had a quiet dignity that was all Ianto, but it was unnecessary to the plot, IMHO. Bloody Torchwood.

Oh, and I cried for Tosh and Owen too, I love all the team.
kimurhokimuro on July 10th, 2009 02:49 pm (UTC)
Not having seen the episodes in question yet, I can't say, but at least Owen's final death had purpose to it. He sacrificed himself for the greater good. And Tosh spent her last breath giving him the courage to do so.
Ithithildyn on July 10th, 2009 07:24 pm (UTC)
Sorry it's so upsetting for you :(
enchantersnight: Fox and Houndenchantersnight on July 10th, 2009 03:29 pm (UTC)
I may just may watch the Jack and Methos show but first I have to stop crying.

Also to cap it all I am out tongiht and going to be clock watching in the hope of seeing 11.45 repeat but really not sure I could cope with just Jack and Gwen.
