Get Zorin for me!
~ May Day to James Bond

May Day is the deuteragonist in A View to a Kill. She used to be Max Zorin's henchwoman, until she reformed to help Bond defuse the bomb, only for it to kill her dead.

History

May Day was an assassin who worked for the evil Max Zorin of Zorin Industries. She appeared to be a strong bodyguard to Zorin and got pleasure out in murdering people that Zorin deemed to be a threat. She also has two associates Jenny Flex and Pan Ho, whom she are very close to.

As such, May Day aided Zorin into initiating his plan to destroy Silicon Valley by setting off the geological lock that would cause the faults to move simultaneously and sink the entire area, which would leave Zorin to gain control of the microchip monopoly. She even helped out Zorin's men in pumping water into them via a vast system of oil wells in order for Zorin to blast through the lake beds to break off the lock with explosives.

However, despite their long intimate relationship, Zorin deliberately betrays May Day and his remaining workers by blowing up the mines to flood and shooting them down to ensure that his plan would succeed. Though May Day survived the attack, she is upset to see that all the workers have been drowned and shot, including Jenny and Pan Ho, much to her complete distraught.

Demoralized by Zorin's betrayal, May Day turned to Bond for help because they were the only two left in the mine who could possibly stop the bomb. The two managed to get the bomb out into a cart, but the break handle is forcing itself. Knowing that the cart can't be able to get the bomb out from the mines by itself, May Day willingly sacrifices herself by holding the handle to ride the cart, telling Bond to get Zorin for her. As May Day finally rides the bomb out of the mine, she accepts her fate as the bomb detonates, killing herself and saving Silicon Valley in the process, much to the horror of Zorin and his remaining henchmen, Scarpine and Hans Glaub.

Honoring May Day's promise, Bond manages to avenge May Day's death by knocking Zorin off the top of the Golden Gate Bridge, where Zorin fell thousands of feet to his watery death in the bay.

Trivia

  • Despite being one of the, arguably, evilest villains, she is one of the few to change sides and become an ally, along with Pussy Galore in Goldfinger, Ladislav Kutze in Thunderball, and Jaws in Moonraker.
