    If you look at Spikes character throughout the series you can tell that he was always going to be a "tragic hero". Everything was shaping up for us to finally learn about him towards the end and then his death.

    If you watched the movie where it was supposed to be watched i.e between episode 22 and 23 prior to have seen the upcoming episodes you'll realise the fact that they delve further into his past death and if or not the authenticity of anything he experiences is there or not. It's defenitely building up like raising a bigger question mark.

    Also at the end of the last episode you can tell that Spike is dead from what the Indian guy says as someone mentioned above. So you can't really put a question mark over if Spike survived or not. When Gren I think his(her?) name was died in sessions 12 and 13 "Jupiter Jazz" he said something similar about the fallen star etc.

    I think that the ending would've been pretty lame if Spike lived and everything ended being happily ever after because to be fair Cowboy Bebop wasn't about that, it was a great show and more than anything Spike lived by the philosophy that life isn't fair. It's somewhat a fitting end.

    Although to quote an interview a while ago with the producer he admits that Spike may not be dead even though what has been portrayed. Here's the quote:

    I've never officially said that he's died. At this point, I can tell you that I'm not sure if he's alive or dead. I think probably rather than being yelled at for killing Spike, I think ... people are more upset that I might make a continuation.
    I for one would be a little disappointed if he made a continuation of the show, because it just wouldn't seem right. I was a bit sad how it ended but I thought it was a really good ending which tied everything together. As mentioned in the same interview every time Vicious was shown in prior episodes was to give more and more info and add more depth to the ending episode. I watched all the episodes and the movie in the last week, in around another week or two I'm going to have another look at a handful of sessions, Jupiter Jazz, The Ballard of Fallen Angels and the last 2 a couple times to see if I was missing anything which could give even more hidden information.

    Not really on topic, but does anyone else feel towards the end of the series. Like the last 4 sessions or so the prior episodes even the ones which seemed a tad dull really started seeming better because of what was shown at the end?

    Cowboy Bebop was good, the ending was one the factors why I liked it so much coupled with that first episode(I thought it was cracking), I can't agree that it had a bad ending.

    The ending is a classic, it pretty much broke the 'hero never dies' rule! He beat Vicious, therefore becoming the syndicate boss, and does a classic Spike 'bang' before dying. He got his revenge from the first time he was killed and died knowing there was a weight off his shoulders; and a beautiful song played to symbolize his freedom with his star fading away at the end...

    There would be no point continuing on with the series, and there's no way he should have survived; where would he go? What would he do? What would be his purpose in life? A sad ending is better than a cliche one.

    And that is why I bought the series and movie... BECAUSE I loved it...it is one of the best anime I have watched over the years..and I just loved it, and still watch it... (@_@)... I just wished that they would have get more in depth with Edward and Jet..I just loved that Julia died, not because I did not like her, but because the whole drama of the series makes it so great...it is just great. I do not have any complaints about Cowboy Bebop..it will be like great if they make like extended episodes just like the movie...sort of like missing episodes, but not an ending, I love the ending...and like PugznRoku said about the last song played on the last episode...was beautiful... I just loved it...Oh my...I love the whole thing..I am just crazy about this anime.

    YAY... It appear that BOREDOM strikes quite often!!

    Sad ending, but I wouldnt have it any other way.

    Spike has to die!

    He lost the woman he loved.
    He eliminated Vicious as he wanted to,
    ..and in the end he comes down the stairs bleeding to death, with 20 guys ready to kill him! No way, I tell you!

    I believe it ended the way it was intended, a Cowboy Bebop ending,
    a Real Folk Blues ending -_-

    (After the ending credits when the star dies, that made me cry a little.)
    SMILE!

    I did cry, i will admit it! And sketch of him at the end was beautiful *sniff*

    Remember the story he told to Jet? Spike is the tiger-striped cat, it's brilliant!

    Yeah I knew Spike would die in the end aswell
    I found it sad but like daft says he has to die
    I think sad endings are more appealing to me personally

    ok before i say anything i am very pleased with the ending but have watched this series more than 20 times and i always think about things differently.
    so in no way do i want spike to have survived but this is my theory

    the native American told us that when a great warrior dies their star dies correct? gren died his star fadded away. ok heres the interesting bit, wasnt vicious a great warrior, and didnt vicious also die for sure? in that case there is only 1 star we see that fades and in theory it could have been vicious's star instead of spikes.

    by the way i am the biggest bebop fan i challange anyone to test me :P

    Interesting point. I never thought about it like that. That ending is cool even if Spike dies and they seriously couldn't have ended it in a more fitting or stylish manner. Bebop is a gritty Anime underneath the comedy aspect of it and they ended it on a sad note to show that it was a serious story. Also it gives a definate end with no way of a series two which is also good.

    Myself, I've thought this out, and had long discussions about it at cons, but I still vacillate on death or "death".
    Spike's "death" was inevitable for good storytelling. Although the exact chronology of events that culminated with Spike leaving the syndicate is never exactly explained. Spike does say early in the series (possibly in the 1st episode) "I died once before".
    Speaking metaphorically, he is dead during the entire series, or at least, his death has been postponed until he quits running from his past and faces Vicious. His life was put on hold after he left Julia, Vicious, and the Red Dragon Syndicate behind. That is why he cannot move on, why he cannot get over Julia, and why Vicious proclaims "I am the only one who can kill him". Spike's dead eye, his eye that only sees the past, is one more reminder of his link to business that was left unfinished and must be resolved.
    Once Spike faced his past, confronted and defeated Vicious, it was requisite that he then "move on" into the "next life".
    However, since we are speaking in metaphor, it is certainly a nice thought that possibly his "death" was also metaphoric. And yes, I know the arguments otherwise. The wounds, well, let's face it, throughout the series Spike made it through some major thrashings and came out battered, but alive. And the showdown when he left the syndicate... they shot him in the eye! Anyone that can take a bullet in their eye and keep going, well, my money is on that they can keep going through just about anything. And then the star fading in the sky or not, his death and passing into the next life could just as easily be passing into the life of being another face in the crowd, someone that has put their past behind them and been able to settle down. Symbolism is always nice in that it's subjective to the audiences' preferences.
    Either way, I wouldn't hold my breath for a sequel.

    Its more of an anime that doesn't really try to be predictable and more realistic, so the final battle didn't last a while, they did the battle like they should, short, to the point, but the message of the battle will last longer than the battle itself, AWESOME ANIME.

    hmm we have no evidence anyone shot him in the eye, that could have happend anywhere the only indicator is in the fight in the church at the beinging of the series where he takes the pin out of a grenade and blood is running down his face.

    Well, the blood running down his face, and the cut where you see an artificial eye being implanted.

    I was giving an alternative interpretation of the fading star as a counter to the argument that the fading star meant Spike died in the usual sense of the word. Yours is another alternative interpretation, but did not follow the line of symbolic thinking that I was following. I believe the star was meant to be Spike's star, what I argue is that the fading star does not necessarily indicate that Spike's death was the complete end of his existence. I did not ignore your theory, it simply didn't fit with what I was trying to express, and you are certainly free to interpret the symbols however you feel most valid.

    haha no i get it now i just thought by coincidence someone had come in and said the exact same theroy as mine.

    Hmm the symbolism theory is a good one i have heard it before. I've also heard theory's like yours that say the entire series is limbo, spike says he had died once before and what if this was not symbolism but actually true and therefore where would spike be heaven or hell? he would be in limbo and so the entire series is simply spikes transition to his final resting place.

    there was more to it but my brain hurts when i try and think about it.

    I'd never thought so deeply into the ending before. I watched it and thought that it was cool and that was that. Now that youv'e bought up all these theorys I will watch it again and think more about it.

    *nod nod* Well, I don't buy that the entire series is just Spike's version of limbo, which would make the other characters figments of his imagination. I'll stick with Spike is metaphorically in limbo, and the other characters have their own paths to walk.

    However, you did remind me about one more bit of symbolism planted in the series that goes along with Spike's limbo...

    In the episode Mushroom Samba, while under the effect of the mushrooms Spike hallucinates an endless staircase where he speaks with a frog (toad?) who tells him that it is the stairway to heaven. From the outside we can see that Spike is actually just walking in place.

    I guys it would be difficult to use spoiler tags, since the ending is pretty much all we're talkin' 'bout.

    Personally, I liked the ending a lot. It was a happy ending, since Vicious was defeated, but a sad one since Spike died. Or did he? :P

    I couldn't imagine this super-happy ending with everyone sitting around the Bebop drinking tea and swapping stories. It wasn't the Bebop's style.

    It's too abrupt, same with Champloo and Bebop.

    I thought the ending was perfect.

    Oh yeah and also I think they should release a prequel to the series which involves Spike, Julia, and Vicious. But actually maybe it's better that you only get glimpses of his past in the series, maybe it should stay that way.

    I loved the entire series : INCLUDING the ending.

    I wish I could re-watch it all for the 1st time

    I think that very same thing every time I watch the series. I can still remember how certain things made me feel but can't seem to recapture it. Nothing and I mean nothing will replace the feeling I had while watching my first episode on [adult swim] "Ballad of Fallen Angels"
