Episode Info

Part one of the two-part episode "Jupiter Jazz" starts with Faye apparently cleaning out the safe and taking off for a moon of Jupiter. She hangs out at a bar and meets a saxophonist named Gren. Meanwhile, Ed searches the web for her and one name keeps coming up: Julia. When Spike hears that, he takes off, after having an argument with Jet. Faye goes home with Gren and finds out he isn't what he appears to be. In his search for Julia, Spike ends up in some gun play with Vicious and his own former comrade, Lin.

Critic Reviews for Jupiter Jazz (Episode 12)

The animations for the fight scenes are always top notch but with Jupiter Jazz the show has a secret weapon in Gren, who we've genuinely come to care about over the two episodes.

This is one of the few episodes where it feels like it's a serial drama and not an adventure-of-the-week, which works surprisingly well.

I think my biggest problem with Jupiter Jazz is the way it reaches for a level of significance that it doesn't know how to achieve.
