A close friend of mine who is a Tarantino encyclopedia insists that both Marsellus and Vincent were waiting in Butch’s apartment, ready to kill him. I asked him what made him believe that and he answered enigmatically, “It’s all in the details man, watch the scene play out again.”
I can’t believe this to be true. Marsellus is the top dog, so to speak. Why would he go himself to kill Butch when he could simply send Vincent and Jules? I watched the scene again and can’t find anything obvious that screams out Marcellus was personally involved in the hit.
Is my friend simply reading too much into it?
