As the title suggests, this post will NOT be spoiler-free so please do not read if you are not up-to-date with Season Two of The Mandalorian.
Okay this season is now getting ridiculous with how AWESOME it has been for Star Wars fans – I mean seriously HOW MUCH BETTER can it get??!! Some fans on social media are saying that The Mandalorian is giving the fans too much “fan service”. To that I say “hahah yes please” and can we have:
SLAVE 1 AND BOBA FETT!
There were rumours for at least a week about Slave 1 being featured in this week’s episode and it was first mentioned AFAIK on Reddit (which is a very valuable source for anyone that enjoys Star Wars rumours and speculation) from someone who had access to The Mandalorian media. I dunno who it was nor do I know how they got this information but it was accurate as I have found many of those “speculative” sources to be. I reckon it’s someone on the inside working for Disney or Lucasfilm that is leaking all of these spoilers to the public. They confirmed that they saw images of Boba’s ship which as we now know was featured in this episode of The Mandalorian.
R.I.P THE RAZOR CREST
Tython turned out to be both good and bad news for Din Djarin. Good news because he now has none other than Boba Fett as his partner in a fight against, well, the remnants of the Empire that just doesn’t want to die. And now they have Grogu! Calling this episode “The Tragedy” is an understatement. And let’s not forget that Din also lost his ship!
The Dark Troopers turned out to be kinda lame
Don’t get me wrong, they looked kinda cool but they didn’t fight or do much of anything other than acquire Grogu so he can become a donor for whatever horrible tests and experiments the Empire plans to use him for. What do you think Moff Gideon wants with our little Grogu?
Here’s a little image of the three phases of the Dark Trooper via Wookiepedia:
BOBA FETT is AMAHHHZING!
Tell me this entire fight scene didn’t just make history as one of the BEST scenes we’ve ever had of Boba Fett! It truly is just so awesome how Filoni and Favreau are giving us fans what we deserve. I mean Boba Fett has been dead to us for years and here we have him not only alive and well but kicking ASS like we know he can!
Grogu and reaching out to the Jedi through the force
We still don’t know who Grogu was communicating with on Tython but it took a while and poor Din Djarin tried so many times to get hold of Grogu to protect him. I actually think that forcefield would have done a pretty good job of protecting Grogu from just about anything other than another force user.
BUT WHO DO YOU THINK HE WAS COMMUNICATING WITH? This is the BIG question everyone is asking… let me know in the comments who you think it is!
Let me know what you thought in the comments and as always, stay safe out there my friends!
