    Okay, I understand that Jon was less than happy with Maggie, but was it really necessary for him to run in and punch her in the face? I mean, that's not exactly a manly nor heroic thing to do, since he must outweigh her by about 100 pounds and also, he's a trained fighter.

      Seems like a fair move to me. It would be sexist for him to treat her any differently than he would a male in the same situation. It's not a domestic dispute, she's a thief and there are bodies left and right. I punch in the face seems pretty small in the scope of it.

      Sorry if this sounds misogynistic, but I sorta liked the bit with he punched her in the jaw. :) I saw FOOL'S GOLD recently and there was a bit where Kate Hudson clobbered McConaughey square in the face with a wooden cane. It was supposed to be funny, but it looked like it abuse to me. All of I could think of was "if a man did that to a woman …" Similarly, I expect if Maggie had punched Jon, no one would have mentioned it. In fact, it's a bit of a Grell-ism to have the female lead punch out her leading man from time to time (Tara on Morgan, Dinah on Ollie, … come to think of it, Dinah on Morgan too :).Not that it makes it right, but I rather enjoyed the turnabout. Besides, Maggie's tough , if anyone could beat Sable in a fair fight, it would probably be The Cat.

        slegge is right about the Grell-ism of the female lead punching out the leading man. Check out "Shaman's Tears" #1 (page 9) from the ComicMix site! http://www.comicmix.com/comic/image-comics/shaman…That scene features TWO Grell Cliches! The female lead (Sadie) punching out the male lead (Joshua Brand) AND the gratuitously naked female character!
