Damn, you're right. I missed that.

Well, okay, but one presumes these enemies have to know that Kei is dying to do anything about it. Unless she passes through Muspelheim on the way (doubtful), how would they? I always interpreted this passage to mean "Kei could have been killed by one of these enemies".
The suicide option seemed like the less likely anyhow. I was thinking something along the lines of Len's connection to Kei substituting for the beacon, and… well… who knows how they'd bore a hole to another galaxy. Well, I did say it was a wild-assed guess.
