She finds one assassin, Budd, waiting for her.
Budd injures the bride and buries her alive. He then makes a deal with the other assassin, Ellie, to sell her the bride's sword.
Ellie brings the money in a bag with a deadly snake hidden in it.
The snake bites Budd in the face several times and he dies in a matter of minutes.
The bride uses her training to escape her grave and she returns to Budd's house to find Ellie, the one-eyed assassin.
After a short fight, the bride plucks out Ellie's other eye; and instead of killing her she lets her live the rest of her life blind.
The bride finally tracks Bill down to find him raising her daughter. Showing little compassion, the bride kills Bill, taking her revenge and taking back her daughter.

In the second half of the story of The Bride's epic revenge (she is also known as Beatrix Kiddo and The Black Mamba, played by Thurman), she tracks Budd (Madsen) to the Southwestern desert, but he catches her off guard and buries her alive. Elle Driver double-crosses Budd, then has to face The Bride in a violent battle in Budd's trailer. Volume 2 of "Kill Bill" is not as frenetic as Volume 1: there are far fewer on-screen battles and deaths, and much more background story: we are treated to The Bride's kung fu studies under the master Pai Mei in China and something of The Bride's past relationship with her ultimate quarry, Bill, who was barely glimpsed in Volume 1. Ultimately, this remains a supreme exercise in style, but Tarantino gives more of a sense of the characters.
The review of this Movie prepared by David Loftus

In the sequel to Kill Bill: Volume 1, The Bride is back, and she's ready to kill the last three members of the Deadly Viper Assassin Squad: Elle Driver, Budd, and Bill, the ringleader. We learn that The Bride's expertise in martial arts comes from intense training with Pai Mai, a Chinese master. She uses these skills to free herself from a graveyard, where she has been buried alive. When she escapes, Elle has already done some of her work for her by killing Budd. In a sword fight scene that takes place in Bud's disgusting trailer, The Bride easily kills Elle. When she journey to Mexico to find Bill, however, she discovers that their daughter, who she thought had died while she was in a coma, is alive and that Bill has been lovingly raising her. Will this affect her quest for revenge?
