Episode Summary

At the city of Jeneora (January) Rock, a bunch of outlaws representing the Roderick Thieves visit a pub but get into trouble when they encounter Legato, who can manipulate people's limbs telepathically, like making people shoot each other. Outside the city, the Roderick gang try to fight Legato but the Gung Ho Guns arrive and kill off half of the gang with unnatural weapons and techniques. After carrying Meryl and Milly across the desert, Vash enters the bar for a drink but only sees bloodshed. Suspecting Legato, he searches town and the nearby area, and encounters the deadly and beautiful Dominique the Cyclops, who moves so quickly as to appear to teleport.moreless

    “Demons Eye” sees probably one of the biggest body counts in Trigun. Vashes old enemy hires The Gung Ho Guns and causes a reign of terror in a small town. It’s up to Vash to save the day. In the end Vash shows off with one part of the guns and wins, leaving Millie and Meryl behind, stating that the journey ahead is too dangerous. This is a great episode, and it is quite a bit darker than previous outings. We see a small part of Vashes enemy, as well as the power of the Gung Ho Guns. 9 out of 10

      Gray the Ninelives - muscular shoulder
      Dominique the Cyclops - long black hair, white hat and suit
      Zazie the Beast - front shoulder - red bandanna, green vest, white shirt
      Leonof the Puppetmaster - glasses and hat, wrinkles around eyes

      Legato mentions that Chapel appears to be absent.
      Dominique volunteers to handle the first job. She wears one lens has a square-wave pattern on the bifocal line.
      Monev the Gale is absent because of episode 12 but is not mentioned in this list.

    • Dominique introduces herself as the second Gung-Ho Gun. Her special ability looks like teleportation at first as she can easily and instantly appear next to her opponent.

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Legato: (to girls, one of whom is crying) It really is a shame what happened here. But now at least you know how much pain there is in living. (other girl starts to weep) The day it all ends is near. I advise you to make good use of the time you have left.

    • Legato: That's unusual for me. (looking at his hand) I usually don't waste time on vermin like that. (recalls image of Vash) It must be the way you look, Vash the Stampede. Your very existence seems to cause me undue irritation.

    • (Dominique makes her instant exit. While in slow-motion...)
      Dominique: This isn't over, Vash the Stampede.
      Vash: It would be nice if you wore a dress the next time.

    • Milly: Boy, Meryl, the ride is comfy, isn't it?
      Meryl: It sure is! This is one incredible piece of machinery.
      Milly: The only way it could be better is if it were a little bit faster. Now that would be dreamy!
      (Camera pans down to Vash who is carrying the girls and the car frame on his back.)
      Vash: I'm doing the best I possibly can. Gimmie a break!
      Milly: My goodness, Meryl, this car can actually talk!
      Meryl: There's no way, Milly. You're just hearing things.
      Milly: Gee, I hope you're right.
      Vash: Girls only care about themselves..
      Meryl: Do you have any right to say that after wrecking our car? I think not! You're going to take full responsibility!
      Vash: Are we there yet? ARE WE THERE YET!?!

    • (Dominique explains that the people she killed were filthy anyway.)
      Dominique: Call it a spring-cleaning of sorts. Well, does that make you feel any better?
      (Vash sighs.)
      Vash: You killed them. Even though they did terrible things, the decision of who should and should not live was never and never will be yours to make! I should slap you. Not to mention, that during this conversation, I could have groped you, at least five times. (holding up fingers, but realizing one of them was bandaged) OK, so let's say maybe four times.
      (Dominique's blouse buttons pop off, and she covers up.)

    • Vash: (to Dominique) Don't clean away people, clean the house of the man you love. Like me, for example. I'm just kidding you know.
