Hmm, probably. I thought that since she is Jack's pupil, it could be possible that she has done some sort of research with regards to samurai and/or the way of the samurai (or at the very least spoken to Jack about it). She has been seen attempting to follow Jack's lessons before (and failed), so I was wondering whether or not this event could lead to her attempt to at least die honorably, since she did something that could be seen as dishonorable. Would she think that it was possible to find a different way to end all this if she had mastered Jack's lessons?
Then there's the question of whether or not the sword would work if she tried to use it on herself?
In addition to that, Naga also said before that it must have been such a small problem at first. So I wondered, would this have been a big deal if Buttercup had only listened to what was being said just now? Maybe that's why Naga, Dee Dee and Grim are there?
Though I'll admit, that since this theory does completely ignore Bell, Blossom and Gir, it is a pretty big stretch. Also not sure about what secrets Naga wishes to preserve from all this. Nor am I sure how the bomb activation would work in this instance.
