Nice little plot twist added into the end there, brought the ep from a 4/5 to a 5/5 imo.

That one guy with the glasses was a beast with those knives.
& interesting to finally find out what happened to Jet's arm.

Love the plots and twist cowboy bebop gives. This episode and previous ones are the ones that keep the story going.

How did the guy kill the black person if he loaded only one bullet in his gun?

Fantastic Jet episode. The story was meaningful, the main villain was freaking interesting, and everything done in this episode was just right.

This is film noir at his best.

See You Space Cowboy...

With that one bullet. When he aimed at Jet, he was out of ammo already and wanted to provoke him into shooting. What you see in the revolver's chamber is the empty case (they are not discarded automatically like in newer types of guns)

This is indeed correct, remember Jet said it was an old gun he used.

Anyway even though Spike's probably my favourite character I have really enjoyed these last two episodes.

Great music and style of the episode with the detective-esque theme. Cool backstroy to his character with a decent ending.

Ed always cracks me up even in the episodes where she has very small parts.

Good episode. The story was a little too simple on the surface for me, but the execution was great as usual with some great action scenes and good characterization as well. 7.5/10

Awesome episode. Easily one of my favorites so far.
Jet and his history is neat. The twist was amazing and the fact that his partner provoked Jet into shooting him was some scary realization... but at the same time, his partner WAS the one who messed up his arm in the first place. It must have been guilt on his part, and he rather die by the hands of Jet than anything.
Also, I love the villain in this episode. He's frightening.

I'm past the point of re-watching episodes I've seen in the past... So it's all new for me here on out.

I really find it interesting the diversity that this anime shows, it kinda of fits the whole jazz theme of the show.

The episode was really good, I find myself empathizing with Jet, he's a nice character.

This was the darkest episode so far, but still a good episode.
Fad's death was really cool.
Next episode seems much better though XD

Yes! Even though she probably doesn't have much of a back story since she's so young, I'm interested in knowing how she came to be alone on Earth with such technological skill.

So, even in the future smoking is still an issue, even with all this technology? Welp okay.

Also, the prison ship looks like something right out of CoD.

Amazing episode!

Poor Jet, learning the truth that his most trusted partner were deceiving him and killing him in the end.

It really reminds me of Spike's past with Vicious and all.

Now we've got two more episodes from Jet's past. Alice's relationship and Fad.

Love these kind of episodes! Dark as hell and lots of deaths and killing.

Can't wait for the next one! I hope the "Stand Alone" episodes will end in episode 20. So we could have the rest of the 6 episodes with "Complex" style regarding Spike :)

Damn we're almost at the end!

Can't wait for the next episode!
