Episode Info

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.

Critic Reviews for Heavy Metal Queen

Following one of the series' creepier episodes, the show gives us a brief respite with one of its most fun, straight-up bounty-hunting comedy action episodes.

Works as a pit stop on the way to something more exciting... My biggest gripe with the episode is that it all felt woefully inconsequential.

An uncharacteristically weak episode in Cowboy Bebop's original 26-episode run.
