Freaking great mood to this episode, and its starts an amazing arc. It's Spike's story so it can only be good.

Spike kicked some serious ass this episode, mostly due to the fact of being mistaken by Vicious. The anger he has towards Vicious must be really great. I don't remember Lin, but it seems he worked under Spike in the past and now is with Vicious.

Did Spike actually got shot?

Wow, the rage when Spike was mistaken for Vicious :D
Great episode, I was quite surprised that Gren turned out to be hemaphrodite.

Great stuff, just everything in this episode worked well. The music with the Saxophone was something to be remembered and really added a lot to the atmosphere of the episode. Also, Bebop shows it's knack for creating interesting characters. This time in the form of Gren.

That was highly disturbing for me. Did any other chick think he was kinda hot until he had BOOBS?

When Ed falls on Ein...poor Ein.


"I'm going to go look for my woman...you can go look for the other one." ooooo!


"I'd rather hook up with a spiny armadillo!" Some days I feel that way too...

But the ending! Aaah, cliffhanger!

xD

whoa i'm glad that didn't happen to me...i can only imagine my mom:
"oh no he's gay oh my god,i'm not going to have grand kids" lmao

but man,he's a hemaphrodite wtf :,and i didn't expect nudity in this
and 2nd wtf..did spike just die? O.o

5/5


Hahaha Man I have no idea what my mom would think... Probably just ... oops my bad for walking in...

And yeah I was wondering why no one was asking about that... episode ends with spike shot down...

Well this is a cool set-up for a two-parter... The planet that Spike found himself exploring is brooding in it's atmosphere, and the bar Faye goes to has some amazingly animated mood moments. There's some little hints towards a deeply important and mysterious person called Julia being revealed later, and the single short action scene in this film is a great one. It helps that the drama is splendidly written and the new characters are well-defined, too, and the return of Vicious instantly adds a tension to the proceeding.

The last few moments of the episode raised a few too many important questions for a cliffhanger ending IMO, but it could easily lead to a spectacular wrap-up next time. Considering Cowboy Bebop's track record. 8.5/10

I remember watching this episode 6+ years ago when I was 15 or so, and I was super surprised and confused when Gren turned out to be a hermaphrodite.

But now... things like that hardly bother me anymore. And the idea of having different body parts don't effect me as much and I applaud Cowboy Bebop to have a character like this in their midst. But at the same time shouldn't define a character or change your opinion on them either.

My mom wouldn't stop bothering me about it if she were to walk in when I watched this (which wouldn't happen).

I see the plot's decided to advance a little again. Super start for the first episode of Cowgirl Ed, let's hope it can keep it up. DAT SAX too.

Faye is more trouble then shes worth it seems like, always running off with Spike and Jet's money/fuel.

The shower scene was uh...weird? I hope that wasnt supposed to be Julia...

First nudity in Bebop? Why wasn't there any blood around Spike after he was shot? Maybe he wasn't hit? Hmm.

It might be a little early to make this assumption, but I get the feeling that Gren is Julia. Some episode awhile back had a bounty who got surgery to change his face.

La serie se volvió interesante con éste episodio. Con un dramático final, Spike inconsciente y Faye se encuentra en una situación extraña, pero el úlimo guión de Gren fue genial: "Soy ambos, pero soy ninguno".

La batalla más intrigante:

The series turned very interesting with this episode. A dramatic end, Spike unconscious, and Faye is found in a weird situation, but the last Gren's phrase was so good: "I'm both, but I'm none".

Amazing episode!

So this "Julia" who's close to spike is a woman, but not? Maybe she was experimented on or what? Though it might be due to the war since She and Vicious and probably Spike were in the same team

Definitely a twist that Gren was Julia! Faye got fooled into thinking Gren was male or gay.

Man it sucks why would Faye leave the group like that? They might act like they don't care, but they do care about you! Gren probably knew what she felt and it's probably the same with her, Vicious and Spike.

And wow that town really doesn't have any women? Must be sausage fest there :O

Good stuff! Can't wait for the next episode!

He's/she's both, but neither.. I wonder what the story behind that is.

Looking forward to finding out more about Spike's past.
