Bring out the gimp.
~ Zed to his brother, Maynard.

Zedekiah (or Zed for short) is the secondary antagonist of the 1994 crime film Pulp Fiction. He serves as the main antagonist of the chapter called "The Gold Watch".

He is a treacherous rapist who victimizes men that he and his accomplice, Maynard, kidnap. Zed rapes gangland boss Marsellus Wallace inside the basement of Maynard's pawn shop.

He was portrayed by Peter Greene, who also played Dorian Tyrell in The Mask, D.J Wheeler in Black Cat Run, Deacon in Blue Streak, and Tommy Bucks in Justified.

Biography

Boxer Butch Coolidge is being chased by crime boss Marsellus Wallace into a pawn shop, where Butch disarms him and prepares to shoot him in the head. Suddenly the pawn shop owner, Maynard, holds Butch at gun point with his shotgun, forcing him to walk up to the front desk with his hands behind his head, before knocking him out with the stock of the shotgun while Marsellus passes out from the fight with Butch. Meanwhile, Maynard calls Zed and says that, "a spider just caught a couple of flies".

Later on, Maynard wakes them both up and they find themselves bound and gagged. Zed arrives and tells Maynard to wake up 'The Gimp', and chooses Marsellus with a game of "eenie meenie miny moe". Leaving The Gimp to watch over Butch, they take Marsellus into the back room, bend him over a vaulting horse and begin to rape him. Butch manages to untie himself and knock The Gimp out, but just as he is about to leave the pawn shop, he realizes he cannot leave Marsellus to his fate and goes back to save him with a katana in hand.

Butch sneaks up on Maynard and brutally slashes and stabs him, then holds Zed at bay with the katana. Marsellus frees himself and picks up Maynard's shotgun. Before Zed can grab his pistol, Marsellus shoots him in the crotch. He vows that Zed's suffering has only begun, promising that he will "get medieval on [his] ass". Since Butch saved him, Marsellus calls off his feud with him, providing time for Butch to leave Los Angeles and keep what happened there to himself.

Butch does so and takes Zed's chopper to pick up his girlfriend Fabienne and leave Los Angeles for good. While what happens to Zed afterwards is unknown, it's implied that Marsellus kept his word and Zed was tortured, mutilated and killed by his men as his many previous victims.

Trivia

  • The room in which Zed and Maynard take Marsellus to is referred to as "Russel's Old Rom", implying that they may have sadmozied and killed one of their former victims.
  • According to the screenplay, Zed and Maynard are brothers.
  • In the video game Dead Island, the player can be rewarded with a katana known as "Zed's Demise" after killing the Banoi Butcher, which is a clear reference to the same blade that was used by Butch to defeat him.
  • In the 1996 Simpsons episode 22 Short Films About Springfield, it is implied that Zed was not killed by Marsellus and was now living in the Simpsons hometown of Springfield, where he befriends military antique store owner Herman and continues engaging in rapes of people who unwillingly stumble into Herman's store.
