The Viki comments just about drive me mad. I was personally shocked at how many commenters still wanted Jin Mi to end up with Night. They kept saying that she was dumb. She wasn't dumb just sheltered and naive. I like Viki comments but they're also double edged sword. About the battle scene I think that his arrogance showed through. He's described in the book as being arrogant and he was fully confident and sure of himself, which is true to his character.
