2nd reaction: Okay, I actually didn't mind the death itself so much. Jack was willing to give up all the children so Ianto would be spared, and I loved Gwen's reaction. There needs to be more reactions on this next episode, though!
3rd reaction: Why did they have Jack be such an ass to Ianto all season?! We were promised evolvement in their relation, and this was not it!
hmm, isn't there a rumor going around that the last DW-special will be one big reset button? That would mean for Ianto too, no? I suddenly like this theory!
aaaah. Need to think about this more.
