But why was Beatrice de-existing in ep4? Was it because she was giving up on existing, or because she was destroyed?

It's an important distinction; if a person can just be made to give up and stop existing, the statement made about them need not be true. For instance, if Shkanon is true and Erika doesn't know it, Battler and Beatrice can say "there are 17 people" knowing Erika will think it means she doesn't exist. If she then gives up, they win. I think that's a bit out of character for Battler to do, though.

That said, it has precedent: They've tried to essentially destroy Battler 2-3 times by making him give up and stop existing. On the other hand, he never really seemed to want to disappear of his own volition...
