Synopsis: Boba Fett makes friends, makes enemies, and makes the grade. Fennec Shand weighs which menacing pose looks the coolest. Hutts betray everybody but themselves, as well as each other, or do they? With Dave Pasquesi as the majordomo.

Danny Trejo is now officially part of the Star Wars universe!

And now that we have a new rancor, it sounds like that rumor I heard might be true after all...

Wasn't expecting Fett's adopted tribe of Sand People to get wiped out like that, but hopefully that kicks the flashbacks into high gear going forward.

Nice to see Krrstantan in action.

On the downside, Fetts' Newsboy Legion seemed like they came from another franchise... the cybernetic implants (especially the one over that one guy's eye) looked a little goofy, and their bright, primary-colored bikes didn't seem very Star Wars-y, either. The girl was kind of cute, though, so that can go some way to redeeming them.

That was awesome! So much to talk about!

Spoiler:
I didn't see the female Tusken fighter among the dead. Those bikers are in for a world of hurt!

That fight with Black Krrsantan was intense! Not exactly how you want to wake up. Boba setting him free will work to his advantage just like with the Gamoreans and the cyborg bikers.

I love the cameos.

Boba riding that Rancor would be much more intimidating than being carried.

I'm starting to question Fennec's loyalty to Boba. How did Krrsantan get in? Could be nothing.

Can't wait to see the showdown with the Pykes!

Great episode. I thought the Mod gang was a little much, but as a Who fan as well as other bands from that era, I dug the reference.
I hope there isn’t a falling out between Fennec and Boba, but that’s probably inevitable right? That’s how drama works I guess.

Moochi?! Is that Moochi?! Please tell us it’s Moochi.

Hint: A reference to The Bad Batch.

Aside from some nice actor appearances and fight scene, I found this to be a very poor episode. Not looking for more action, I just want things to feel like they have some weight, tension...so far we don't have much. As I feared, the present day stuff is really struggling.

See I thought the present day stuff, minus the Biff Tannen BTTF 2 gang, was the highlight this week. Probably the strongest episode so far to me.

It was an ok episode. I am not a fan of the Alita rejects. I did think their cybernetics looked cheap. The gladiator Wookiee was cool.

Nice to see Amy Sedaris in this episode. And as soon as I saw Trejo, I'm like.. this is a Rodriguez directed episode.

At some point, I assume a Boba flashback is either looking for the Nikto gang or the missing Tusken Raiders from his tribe and comes across Fennec's encounter with Mando and Calican from Mandalorian season 1. And is why getting his armor back was super important.

Who thought casting the Backdoor Pilot Gang from season 2 of Stranger Things was a good idea? Holy crap that was painfully bad and awkwardly out of place.

The rest of the episode was fine but Fett needs to start leading by example. Sure he's daimyo but he hasn't really done anything to cement his reputation and status (other than playing grabass with the Getalong Gang).

That was the slowest chase scene in the history of Star Wars.

Didn't the speeder/scooter chase scene seem a little... slow? Not slow in pacing, but literally slow, as in they really aren't going that fast?

Great show, even if it isn't perfect. Really looking forward to his confrontation with the mayor's lackey when sitting on top of that Rancor.

BTW, I really dig the closing credits theme music.

This was a pretty disappointing episode. I think the chase scene was probably the worst thing put to film in any of the Disney+ Star Wars or Marvel series so far.

The chase scene was odd. Reminded me of Solo in a bad way. Loved the rancor and the Wookie.

Rodriguez directed this ep?

no wonder that chase seemed straight out of Spy Kids.






at least the Wookie was badass.

At this juncture, I'd rather they just give Evil Chewie his own series.

The chase was laughable it was so slow, and I agree Fett's new biker friends look like they just stepped out of Back to the Future Part II. I also agree the episode felt like there was no weight to the show. Why was Boba so nice to the Wookiee and the Hutts after they tried to kill him?? Right after the attempt on Boba's life, the Hutts immediately apologized for it. WTF? Why are the crime lords in this show so polite?

I enjoyed it a lot. Loved the Stephen Root, Danny Trejo cameos and seeing young Natalie from Yellowjackets.

I said this exact same thing to my wife. "When did we flip over to Back to the Future Part II?". Also, aside from folks carrying a big plane of glass for him to smash into, they covered about every stereotypical chase scene complete with crashing into the fruits and veggies cart at the end.

That chase scene will be memorable, but not in a good way
