Nice background story, but I think this episode was not as good as the previous ones. I never would have thought such past for Faye. It must be weird to think she's 73.

It was a nice background ep indeed. It was nice to learn something about Valentine's past.

It's weird to think that a girl as nice looking as her is in her 70's. Also why would anyone get a fat implant?

Haha true. :D I mean it's future so maybe there's different perfect body image portrayed by media. :D

Nice episode. We can actually think of Faye as being in her 70s. It's not like she's lived through them and gained "life" experience.

One thing that kinda pissed me off is that there are quite a few episode where they decide not to claim the bounty. I guess the creators wanted to give them deepness to the characters and make them not appear money loving bastards as other bounty hunters are.

Wow, they finally claimed a bounty, and it's hardly anything...

I also would not have imagined such a past for Faye, but there were multiple hints about her being older...

Fairly slow. The background stuff was interesting, but it took a bit too long for me. Nice dogfight near the end though.

Nice back story, but it didn't really help progress or really even shed light on Faye's actual past. Otherwise interesting episode, and enjoyable.

Maybe that guy did so to make himself unrecognizable? You know, he was kind of a rook.

I think it was a great episode...We got a lot of background info about Faye, the music was great. It had some twists and some really funny scenes. I also found the pacing to be quite fitting.
I liked it! =)

Not a very good episode, with horrible pacing imo.

Spike looked disgusted after the story.

She may be old but her debt and property she got from that man may have contributed to her current job as a bounty hunter. I wonder if she even has the slightness idea of paying those debt. Looking at her no, I'd say she put her past behind her.

I feel sorry for her.
But at the same time, she's lucky because she gets to see the future and the year we're in right now.
I'm glad Faye got her "revenge".

It's Faye's turn, and we take a look at her past, or better yet, we actually don't!

The episode had some pretty funny moments, but overall I would consider it the weakest of this second half. Nevertheless, this episode had this bit of sarcasm, Faye does what she does to Spike and the others, but she as well was constantly trolled by past by this guy ^^

Also, Ein with eyebrows xD and the fact that Faye is actually a

Spike had some great dialogue in this episode, liked it. :)
Was good to see a little bit more about Faye.
Ein once again was awesome though.

Absolutely awesome episode. More background, I think this adds to the characters and really deepens the series. Better than less episodes with no depth at all! :)

Loved Spike's response when she asked if he had been listening to her.. Ha he really didn't care at all, or at least he didn't show it.

Honestly, I liked that episode a lot.
It shows that even her one memory that was somewhat sweet to her... turned out to be a pile of dung after knowing he was actually alive and put his debt on Faye on purpose.
That's reality for you.

I was kinda mad at some coincidences through the episode, but the information in the end about the fat bastard being the doctor's nephew put everything together, it was all a plan.

I'd never have expected this kind of background for Faye, let's see what else they have in store for her.

"I was kinda mad at some coincidences through the episode"

While the show's almost totally episodic format makes it seem more sophisticated than a lot of shows on a storytelling level, this is where it hurts. Sometimes it's more satisfying for a story to take its time and flesh out elements slowly, even drably, than to whiz right by and compensate with fluid animation and tons of original music.

Faye is not an old lady. She was cryogenically frozen which means her body nor mind didn't age because they were preserved. =.=

This episode was all right. A little disappointing. :P

I don't know what to think of Faye, I usually don't enjoy her character type, but with episodes like these, she may yet grow on me.

Good episode in all.

So was the Doctor Guy and the nurse con people too? I guess they would be since the "lawyer" happens to be the Doc's nephew, but do they usually thaw people out to steal money off of them?
