Sup /a/?

What do you seriously think about the ending to Cowboy Bebop? I know it's a pretty popular opinion that the ending was sudden, and completely changed the character Spike into something that he wasn't just to end the series.

I think the opposite. I just watched the series again, and that side of Spike seems to have been written in from the first episode. There are other episodes that offer insight into Spike's feelings toward Julia as well, and his reason for hating Vicious.

Anyways, just wondering what your thoughts were.
