    EU Fett is a legitimately good character though, it's just that we haven't seen much of his personality in media except for Clone Wars.

    I don’t think he’ll have amnesia, I think he was just healing. He was getting digested. Most likely fucked him up.

    I really hope they don’t waste the McQuarrie design on Fett. It’s amazing and deserves to be another character not an iteration of one of the most recognizable characters in the franchise.

    I think it would be cool to put him in something low-key. I like the idea of him just wearing painted Phase 1 Clone Trooper armor or Stormtrooper armor (maybe with some makeshift gadgets added on)...something kind of lame and standard, so it's extra cool when he finally gets his proper armor back. Maybe even just a scavenged mix-mash of different stuff that vaguely resembles his old armor. If they put him in something too cool, there won't be a contrast.

    But I sort of see them going with the McQuarrie design, because that seems to be Lucasfilm's approach (they pull a lot from his work). I kind of hope they don't either, personally.

    Kinda sorta yeah

    Excellent point. I didn’t follow Fett in Clone Wars, I just couldn’t deal with that characterization. Speaking of which isn’t Boba aging significantly faster than Bo Katan? These planets must have significantly different gravitational time dilation but I digress.

    I feel like Fett is the armor. He should be making a beeline to it. It should be like his skin.

    Right. That’s with I am not really interested in seeing him in another suit. He is the suit.

    Can I just say how good Ludwig Göransson did scoring this show? Seriously, the soundtrack is killer.

    Completely agree about this. I feel like they have really dropped the ball on this plotline (so far, any way). The armor was such a big deal in the first episode, and BF is teased at the end, then the next three episodes don't even mention the armor. I don't think we have even seen it, right?

    I mean, what if instead of the giant nameless/faceless/random spiders in episode 2, they paid off the stinger in the first episode and it was Boba Fett who was coming after them when the ship crashed. Then Fett had to fall back when the rebel police came in at the end? I feel like would have been more interesting. Or maybe Fett comes back and they fight, then the spiders come, and Mando has to give Fett his armor back to form an uneasy alliance to survive.
    IDK. Maybe they'll pay it off later.

    Interesting. I think we’ll get the pay-off soon enough. They love the “Oh Shit!” moment, and really so do I, as much as I would have loved that I am more excited for when they unexpectedly hit me with Fett later on. Oh Shit! Forgot about him.

    Can everyone just watch the youtube channel EckhartsLadder? He makes good points as to why the dude in the tank is not Snoke or Palpatine.

    Alarms about the volcano exploding, maybe?

    hahaha.

    I, personally, think that Ahsoka is criminally overrated, mainly because she's a boring character whose personality basically can be summed up as "Anakin's Shadow".

    I know, it's awesome. If you haven't seen it already, you should watch this, it's super interesting.



    Who called the fun police?

    An interesting video for the fact that it points out some pretty glaring plot holes, namely how the introduction of the Imperial base from last episode seems completely contrary to the way the Empire acted in season 1.

    Dunno if this actually relates, but the cheesy camper in me really thought this was cool.
