Added DiffLines:

* Episode 15, "The Seven Emerge", is a bleak portrayal of just how scared to die Gene is, and his first experience of being in way over his head. Threatened by the [[KnightofCerebus assassin Shimi]], Gene haughtily proclaims that he can easily defeat him. [[BreakTheHaughty Then he gets his ass handed to him. Repeatedly.]] During the battle with Shimi, Gene gets shot in the stomach, ''every'' member of the crew has a fake-out death, and they only win by sheer dumb luck. It's horrible just how close the Outlaw Star crew came to being utterly annihilated, and it was only that Shimi took pity on them that they escaped alive.
** There's also the scene about halfway through the episode where Melfina comes to visit Gene, and, convinced that he's going to die but trying not to show it, he tries to make her sleep with him, which ''terrifies'' her. In this case, his lecherousness is ''not'' played for laughs. He angrily asks Melfina why she was created, and she starts crying, saying that she doesn't know. It's the first time Gene is faced with what a flawed person he is. Thankfully, [[CharacterDevelopment he slowly gets better]].
