The two rules of the Continental are:
- No blood on Continental grounds.
- Every marker must be honored.
But the punishment for breaking those rules vary between the two movies. In the first, when Ms. Perkins (played by Adrianne Palicki) broke the first rule, Winston, the owner of the Continental, executed her himself. But when John Wick broke that very same rule by killing Santino D'Antonio (in front of Winston eyes), the punishment came as an Excumminicado for John Wick and not as an execution.
So why did Winston, the keeper of the rules, execute Ms. Perkins?
And I think the excution took place on the Continental, if that is true, doesn't it mean that Winston also broke the same rule?
Also, why did Ms. Perkins come to the meeting? She probably already knew that they knew of her breaking of the rules.
