Considering how little he liked it / how bad he looked in it / and how much he'd obviously prefer NOT to go meet with Heathcliff, I think it sends all sorts of the right message.

To be fair, in Asuna's case Kirito's death would probably kill both Kirito and Yui... that's a lot to take for a young girl.

Also, if Kirito dies (as one of the most powerful player's) it's a safe...

Not defending the episode... it's got issues, but if we assume from what was said in the episode (that she can come back), why would you assume one second of her character development was wasted?

It's certainly the most 'unfair' boss event to-date, but since most of your other points were already addressed, no reason to rehash it all anew ^^
