While looking for the bounty of a criminal named Decker, Faye and Spike stake out some locations. Spike encounters a tough-talking truck driver named VT, who travels with her faithful cat, Zeros. Nicknamed "the Heavy Metal Queen," she has a deeply felt resentment toward bounty hunters, but Spike manages to charm her. Faye and Spike both gets their ships wrecked, causing a nagging Jet to have to fix them. With VT's help, Faye and Spike chase Decker into the Linus Mines, an unstable asteroid area. With failing weapons systems on both ships, and Decker hauling a shipload of explosives, VT, Faye, and Spike have to make a daring escape.
This DVD is worth buying just for episode 9 alone. It is titled 'Mushroom Samba' and contains lots of great music and humor and is the only episode I can think of that gives Edward a starring role. Besides Mushroom Samba, this disc offers two episodes in which we learn about Faye's past, and 'Black Dog Serenade,' which fills in a bit more about Jet. All around, this disc is essential for all Bebop fans.
