Great episode. But can’t get to much joy knowing the hack is directing the last episode.

I just don't understand the point of this show. It has done such a disservice to the Boba Fett character, making him much less interesting and minimizing his importance in the Star Wars universe. They should have just saved all this good stuff for the next season of The Mandalorian and skipped this series altogether.

CGI was definitely better this time around

4 episodes in and it couldn't find it's footing, so they went back to the well. Makes sense.

Fantastic episode. Good training music.

I had to dig deep into my memory to pull the name Cad Bane.

I haven’t watched any of the animated shows in YEARS, so I don’t remember how I know that name

Sounds like you don't understand how tv shows are made either.

I know it's been said before, but give Favreau and Filoni the keys to ALL of Star Wars now!

I really, really, really enjoyed this. AND, I kept wanting to get back to Boba Fett, back to Boba Fett, back to Boba Fett.

It looks like all roads lead to Boba Fett for the fibale, however. We're caught up in flashbacks, and the people who are going to be there amd going to be there. I'll be glad to see where it all ends up.

Grogu will end up with the darksaber.

He will be the first Mandalorian Jedi in 1,000 years. Tarre Vizsla was of two worlds and so is Grogu. It's a short sword, similar to Yoda's lightsaber, made of both beskar and kyber crystal. In Grogu's hands both the lineage of the Jedi and the Mandolorians will rise again for generations.

That's where all of this is leading.

Maybe Grogu is the titular Mandalorian.

Only thing is it'll probably a long time before he's old enough to take the mantle of Mandalorian leadership. The motherfucker's already fifty years old and still acts like he's a toddler.

And, let's face it, Yoda in Boba Fett armor would look weird.

Grogu will be close to 100 yeaes old by the time Episodes X-XII explore his adulthood and leadership of the new Mandalorian Jedi academy.

Holy shit the scenes with Luke were amazing. We’ve gotten to the point where actors only have to make one appearance now in their whole careers and the rest can be deep-fakes. Soon an actor can be all CG and we wouldn’t even know the difference. Wild.

Woooooooow! Was not expecting so much packed into one episode. Also think it's a bit weird that 90% of the last two episodes have nothing to do with Boba Fett, but damn they've been good. Loved seeing Cobb Vanth again, hope he's not dead. I noticed they were putting a cloth on his chest afterwards, I hope that's a clue that he was still alive.

CAD BANE! So cool. Was that the same voice actor as the animated series? They didn't list him in the credits. I was also trying to remember if he interacted with kid Boba on Clone Wars. Could be an interesting reunion.

And seeing Ashoka again was awesome too. Never thought I would see her and Luke together. They're obviously setting up Grogu to return to the Mandalorian. I keep wondering why Luke makes him continue to wear a potato sack for clothing. Wouldn't it be easier to run and jump in something else? And it's a bit weird that he can run and do flips now, but can't talk. I feel like they missed the mark on that a little, but still enjoyed everything.

It was the same voice actor, Corey Burton was in the credits.

That's not entirely true... this "gathering storm" is courtesy of Boba Fett and his current situation in Mos Espa, they're just taking their sweet time getting the band together.

Cobb was shot a single time in the right shoulder so he should pull through... the deputy however... yeah, he dead.

Spoiler:


Who here thinks that Cobb will get a "mod"?

While the deepfake stuff in this was miles better than the last episode of Mandalorian (and Tarkin and Leia)... it's still not quite there yet. There were several shots that fell squarely in the uncanny valley. Mostly it's the eyes. Windows to the soul and whatnot.

Cobb Vanth will definitely get a mod since he draws with his right hand, good call, Goldberg74.

I’d love for his mod to include a blaster in his shoulder that fires before he draws. A cheap shot for sure, but would be cool nonetheless.
