If you can get as far as fully running grub (ie, the partition with /boot
and thus usually / as well is readable), you can as well boot with the
bestest init system Debian has: the mighty /bin/bash!

That's less powerful than a full rescue CD (can't fsck.btrfs /, recover
from broken ld-linux or libc, etc), but has the advantage of being already
there (so sash is not an option).  init=/bin/bash has saved my bacon a few
times even with simple and reliable sysvinit, I can imagine how useful
it will be with a certain complex monstrosity.
