After playing a game of pool one evening, Spike walked right into an aftermath of agents getting killed by a large fat guy, in an opera suit, with an evil grin, and carrying deadly weapons. He attacks Spike like a madman, and laughs like it was a performance. Spike does all he could to defend himself, and barely got out of the fight alive, when the Fat Guy left when a cat came by. Spike wakes up on board the Bebop, all wrapped up in bandages. Jet told him, he'll go see Bob(the inside source of the ISSP) about the perpetrator that Spike encountered not long ago. The question is who the hell was it that attacked Spike? Written by J LeGault

This is definitely the most darkest episode of cowboy bebop yet but is balanced out by Faye and Ed's humor at times. I'm not yet finished but this is definitely my favorite so far as is Ballad of fallen angels I can't decided the two are very different, this is more grim and like a horror ballad of the angels has more action sequences that you would expect from an action movie and intriguing back story for the main character Spike and his nemesis Vicious. Overall both a great episodes and the best of the series so far.
