I know he is a jerk and did act like one.. but damn even so.. he didn't deserve that much punishment. (it is fine with a punch to the face but serveral? no.) i do feel sorry for him and more for Kieri because she lost control over herself. If Kieri hasn't been stopped i think she could have killed him or worser.. putting him in a coma/vegetable state. I agree with people here that she is seemly much stronger than her mother and brother thought. but she refuses to use her powers because well she dislikes to hurt people.
