Like earlier installments, &#x201CCallisto Soul&#x201D consists of criminals, a bounty and a quest to seize baddies for a couple of Woolongs. But the way the exhibit comes at that plot is diverse this time. Hunter Faye Valetine (Daniella Pineda) tracks a physician to a ritzy gala, the place she calls for he get her &#x201CIdentikit,&#x201D which includes her possessions from prior to she was cryogenically frozen.

As she blackmails the person into contacting her mom, Whitney Haggis Matsumoto, a team of baddies barges on to the scene. They haul the chief of a design team up to the phase and bluster about how she&#x2019s wiping out forests with no regard for the lifetime in them, and they brandish a grenade that&#x2019s intended to be applied as a menace to encourage her to go back again to her businesses and get them to stop the design. Apart from, the grenade goes off, and the lady is turned into a tree. (Branches erupt out of her like the upper body-burster in Alien. It&#x2019s very graphic.) This is the exhibit&#x2019s model of the Place Warriors&#x2019 serum, which, in the initial, turned individuals into monkeys.

In the chaos, the scientist is captured and Faye has no way of obtaining her Identikit.

This sales opportunities to an prolonged room-chase sequence the place Faye each goes just after the Warriors and steals the scientist&#x2019s radio from them. She attempts to radio Whitney in hopes of obtaining her Identikit (that doesn&#x2019t operate). They end all but one particular of the missiles, which Maria launches manually Faye can make a self-sacrificial go to end it from hitting the world.

In the meantime, the Vicious (Alex Hassell) and Julia (Elena Satine) plot carries on to plod together.

Ana&#x2019s anxious that Julia&#x2019s obtaining far too included in the Syndicate&#x2019s company, but Julia maintains that this is her way out of the Syndicate.

As the episode finishes, Maria winds up staying killed by her daughter as she utilizes a grenade of the human-tree serum on them each (so no bounty for capturing Maria, then). And Faye is just fantastic, many thanks to Jet and Spike &#x2014 she&#x2019s formally aspect of the Bebop crew.
