I suppose the pumpkin-like shape of #7's released zanpakuto was a reference to pumpkin pie... anyway, what would happen if #7 could see into Byakuya's body and take control over his heart and make it stop beating? I can see it now, a quick and painless death... how sad... and here he just started turning soft...... oh, wait, I shouldn't make random assumptions on how he dies... after all, he is a pretty decent character *coughcough*bleach's version of vegeta*coughcough*... If he doesn't get any softer than this, watch Ichigo and everyone else throw tomatoes at his grave/coffin after he dies... assuming they outlive him... meantime if he does get nicer, watch everyone yell at him for dying after going soft... either way, I envison it to be funny, regardless of when or how he dies...
