I loved the three previous episodes, especially number 3, but this one bothered me! Why?

Two reasons:

1. Where's the remorse at the horrible death of two people? Especially the pizza girl? No-one on the team (especially Ianto!)shows one bit of remorse. 2. Ianto should have been banished from the team immediately. Anyone who breaches security to the point where the whole team is almost wiped out, does not deserve to be on that team.

Sorry, but this episode left me very uncomfortable. Torchwood is supposed to be the good guys.
