      I never watched any of the newer Starwars movies as I am an original Starwars fan from the 70s with Skywalker & the Deathstar. That being said I decided to start watching this series due to Netflix epic failures as of late. I had no expectations at all. Many had made numerous negative comments about the series but now I can say I completely disagree. It's all about the writing when it comes down to it I think. Boba Fett has a sense of morality and diplomacy which is an excellent example for today's youth, He has a kind streak and shows mercy to his adversaries. Boba portrays a sensitive & cunning man as he helped his captors and was welcomed into their clan on the desert planet in the first in the first three episodes. You see his struggles and then you see how he rose up from the ashes of nothingness after being a prisoner & a slave. (Great Narrative.)
      This really is a fantastic series and this episode was a true throwback with starfighter configuration & construction. Just loved that and it brought back some cool memories. This series makes me feel a sense of wonderment, just like I felt from the first few films as a kid!! So enjoyed this episode. So enjoying this series. Each and every episode is getting better & better with some building tension on the near horizon.
      This is from someone who saw the very first Starwars film in the movie theater!
      Thank you for your posting.

    This episode made me appreciate one of the ships that I despise a lot. I think silver is much better than yellow.

      I do wonder what this means for Mando's bounty hunting career - unless he's only bringing back heads, he doesn't have much space for passengers. Might indicate S3 is going to focus mostly on his quest to return to/free Mandalore instead?

      @Weak eye dominant No. They just have a clean sleek design because that was the intention. The ships looked incredible for their time and they still hold up to this day. That you prefer the look of the ships from the OT is something else but don’t try to claim the ships in the prequels looked bad because they certainly didn’t.

    Mando is exactly the type of character I feel many people would create themselves in an open world star wars game. That’s why he is my favorite character. God bless dave and jon

    Well, Bryce is definitely her father's daughter, holy Hell. This episode looked and felt completely different, like it was on another level. Imagine that the best episode of Boba Fest is the one he's not in. And Imagine that a debutante Director is doing 10 times a better job than industry veterans. The construction of the Naboo fighter, bringing back the Armorer, actually progressing Mando's story and introducing the next season in a way that makes sense, better fighting, better music... Better everything.

      @Swann that Rodriguez episode looked like a continuation of Shark Boy and Lava Girl. It seemed campy. My oldest son saw it and said “WTF? This show sucks!” Which is so disappointing because Rodriguez is a brilliant director. But it definitely seems like the budget ramped up on this ep.

    • Kyle Sawkon
      Kyle Sawkon 3 months ago

      @Swann it just doesn’t make sense tho, boba was badass in mando season 2 even without his suit but in this he’s completely different. He looks old and slow like u said. Fennec doesn’t need to do much since she’s mainly a sniper tho so I’ll give her tht

    • Swann
      Swann 3 months ago

      @Kyle Sawkon With all due respect to Temuera and Ming, who I love, they’re 60 years old. Something feels off. When they’re not body doubled, they’re very slow. When Fennec does something amazing you can tell it’s not Ming so it erodes how believable it is. Same as Temuera. The way he’s been written is too theatrical and too kind. He doesn’t feel like a threat. With Mando, it works because the show does everything to make him a super nice guy who would do anything for a friend. Trying to make Boba kinda the same, except older and slower, doesn’t work.

    • Swann
      Swann 3 months ago +3

      @Pytr Man Well, I did say debutante Director, not debutante actress. She’s just started directing, and I hope she does a lot, lot more. She directed that episode as well as any Director with decades of experience would have. Better than Rodriguez that’s for sure 😆

    I think the armourer knows more than she let on, I think she asked knowing full well he'd taken his helmet off before and she offered him a chance to atone specifically because he has the darksaber, the armourer saw Din defeat Paz so he has kinda won the darksaber in battle twice, she mentioned the mythosaur rising to usher in a new age for the Mandalorians and sent him to the living waters under the mines of Mandalore, so if Din goes to Mandalore, wielding the darksaber and defeats a mythosaur, I mean he's basically the Messiah at that point and I think the armourer is steering him in that direction... possibly with nefarious motives so that HER sect rules Mandalore and the children of the watches way becomes the way for all Mandalorians
    I also like that he sucks at using the darksaber to the point he fileted his own leg, helps maintain the lightsaber as a force user's weapon isn't easily used by just anyone

    • David
      David 3 months ago

      Great points. I think it will be great if we see Mando actually being at least a little force sensitive and going through some basic force training. Would be awesome if Grogu actually "trains him". The child becomes the teacher.

    • Miranda Rojas

      I kinda like it. They're just playing with the different shows and bringing them together, overlapping, and maybe taking us in a crazy new way of telling a story by mixing the shows with each other. It's very different than the classic one show one character and maybe a cameo.

    I can't imagine Mando ruling over an entire planet, but I can imagine him living a peaceful life at the small prawns farming village, with that beautiful widow from season one.

    • David
      David 3 months ago

      Think its being setup for Grogu to rule over an entire planet not Mando. Just IMO. He is kind of the return of Tarre Vizsla - the Jedi mandalorian

  • Pabs
    Pabs 4 months ago +106

    12:28 I think a clarification is that the Droid Cockpit wasn't removed because Mando requested it due to his dislike of droids, but because the mechanic decided to remove it probably because she thinks he still doesn't like droids. The space seems to be the perfect amount of space to fit Grogu.

    • David
      David 3 months ago +1

      I agree - but before Grogu sits in it I think we will see BD (who will be revealed as BD-1) keeping it warm for a short period while Grogu is with the Jedi. He will be like the cute sidekick standin for a few episodes. Pretty certain due to how much they focused on him and featured him all through the end credits art they are setting up a "Fallen Order" cross over. The new game had a huge rush put on it and its release has been moved foward by 18 months to come out end of the year. My guess is Cal Kestis will be appearing in either S4 of Mando or possibly Ahsoka series and the second game will lead into that. My guess is he gets Carbonited by the empire at the end of the second game and needs to be rescued so we will kind of get an homage to the Han Solo return of the Jedi rescue. Kind of like poetry .... they rhyme.

      @Darth Vader The new ship is nice, but there just isn't enough trunk space like the Razorcrest!!

    • delinear
      delinear 4 months ago +5

      It tracks that the mechanic probably thinks he doesn't like droids - the droids certainly seem to not want to be around him. I definitely want to see Grogu in the droid seat with a little plastic steering wheel suction cupped to the front so he can pretend to be piloting the ship in S3 XD

    I loved the pacing of this- the extent of the scenes spent just showing things and letting us soak up the Star Wars universe was an absolute blast. Oh, and Din Djarin saying “Wizard” was also appropriate since it was said by Anakin when he was flying his pod racer…

      personally i like the first half of the episode.. but it came to a screeching halt once he landed on the planet and started working on the dang ship... I mean it felt like sitting in a waiting line at a mechanic shop.. I get their building the ship cool.. but they wasted way too much screen time doing it.. we didn't need all the time just building together the ship.. the mechanic lady is weird.. her lines are always awkward.. takes me right out of star wars.. they goofed up there for sure.

  • Blackheart Pop Culture

    One theory I do have for Mando. If he is going to see Grogu, I hope that Mando gets training as well with the Darksaber from Luke.

    • David
      David 3 months ago +1

      No no - he wont get trained by Luke. He will get trained by Grogu ;) Will be really cool so we can see Grogu communicating to Mando through the force similar to with Ahsoka and we will get a funny kind of call back to Yoda training luke ..... only baby Yoda training mando. I have a strong suspicion we will get a few funny Yoda call backs which Luke has passed on to Grogu. EG: "Try not. Do or do not. There is no try". Mando gives Grogu a funny look. Grogu .... sorry thats just what luke told me.

      We might get only a sliver of Mando with Grogu & Luke. I'd love to see that fleshed out more in Mandalorian S3. What I want to see is Mando coming back using the darksaber properly from Luke. Also, if Boba knows anything about the darksaber & his expression on seeing Din wield proficiently. 😊 (Take that Bo-katan!)

    There was a great parallel between The Armorer training Din similar to Kanan training Sabine. The BD droid got me hoping that we’d see Cal and Merrin.

    • David
      David 3 months ago

      I think its pretty obvious they are setting up a fallen order cross over. That BD droid was featured for no other reason. It was even front and center in the end of credits art. They are obviously lining something up and fallen order 2 got rushed and is now pushed forward to release end of the year. I think the BD will end up with Mando as a temporary "cute sidekick" replacement while grogu spends some time with the Jedi. They will keep his identity ambiguous but reveal it is the BD-1 end of season 3 with some info about the fate of Cal. Then I think Fallen Order 2 will be a direct lead in to Cals appearance in live action universe. I think he will sacrifice himself for Younglings and get "Carbonited" by the empire at the end of the second game. They will then rescue him in the live action shows. Either Season 4 of Mando or possibly the ahsoka series and the actor can appear at his current age in this time period,

    This episode was awesome. Sure it didn’t feel like a BOBF ep but it was great. Bryce Dallas Howard really went all in on it and I loved it. Seeing all the call backs like the N-1 starfighter, the BD droid, and past shows, it was awesome. Also was it just me or did anyone else think of halo when they first saw the ring. I know it wasn’t a full circle but still. It had halo vibes to it

    I love how they have brought the concept of training to use the lightsaber back and not just being able to pick it up and be smooth with it.

    • David
      David 3 months ago

      Also sets up a really cool opportunity for Grogu to train Mando in the force. Can see them linking back up in season 3 and Grogu becoming kind of a teacher for Din - communicating through the force to teach him basic use of the force to be able to use the dark saber. I expect some funny Yoda/Luke new hope call backs :P

  • Daniel Schmaderer
    Daniel Schmaderer 4 months ago +8

    Though this was an awesome episode due to the fact that Din Djarin was in it, I still love this show. That scene with the dark saber was absolutely bad ass. I was also glad to hear his “I can bring you in warm or I could bring you in cold” phrase from Season 1 Episode 1.

    This was like a passing of the torch. I do believe Boba is that guy still for the OG’s but Mando is gonna take that helm after these last 2 episodes. This DEFINITELY set the tone for ALOT of Mando in the coming years because he’s gonna build Mandalore back to the way it was. The symbolism behind that sabre speaks volumes after that episode.

  • Christian Yaerger

    I think this episode also helped confirm a theory I've had for a while:
    Cad Bane was using Beskar rounds in his fight with Boba Fett.
    I wouldn't be surprised if Bane was employed by the Empire to become a Mandalorian hunter.

    • Jon Murphy

      Wrong he wasn't using a slug thrower they were both using blasters... His same blasters that he always uses. They use concentrated gas that turns it into a particle beam when shot.

    • Christian Yaerger
      Christian Yaerger 4 months ago +1

      @GrayifiedX I never said he did. But it's generally accepted that Cad Bane and Boba Fett had a western standoff, and shot each other in the head. Cad Bane had cybernetics installed, like Fennec Shand; and Boba Fett's helmet was dented.
      I'm saying that Bane probably used Beskar rounds, as anything else wouldn't have damaged Fett's Beskar armor.

    • David

      @Roger I predict something more nuanced where he doesn't die. I think the end of Fallen Order 2 which releases end of the year he will get Carboninted by the empire to protect younglings. BD will lead Mando and Grogu to rescue him. And just like magic Cal Kestis can appear at the actors current age in the D+ show timeline

    • David
      David 3 months ago

      @Lukey-HK Pretty sure they are setting that up. Fallen Order 2 is releasing before the end of the year. Think it will be a direct lead in to his apperance in live action D+ shows. I predict he sacrifices himself for younglings and gets Carbonited at the end of FO2 and he needs to be rescued and BD1 will lead Mando/Grogu to him

    • David
      David 3 months ago

      Surely has to be a setup for fallen order cross over. I see they rushed the realease of 2nd game with it release now happening this year. The way they featured BD in this episode - he was all over the end credits - they were clearly setting up a larger role for him.

      @Randy Ram But why attack him with a womp rat?🤣
      The producers wanted him to have a limp! Foreshadowing Cal being with Grogu and Luke when Mando arrives
      For real, though... Lukes rebuilding the order, and I think he's looking for force sensitives.
      May not be BD-1 but definitely meant to evoke thoughts of Cal.

    Great video dude. This episode had it all: action, an amazing new location (Halo world), lore building, the introduction of a cool-ass new ship, and hints of Grogu the Bounty Hunter. This has got me really excited about Star Wars again. NGL I'm getting Tatooine-fatigue. Halo world was SUPER intriguing.

    That Droid spot behind mando in the ship is 1000% a seat for grogu, there's no way it has a little dome like that of it wasn't for him.
    And I doubt grogu ages at all. Realistically, when we see him next, there is going to be maybe a couple years in time passed if any. So going by him being 50 and still barely a toddler, I doubt a couple years will have any affect on him being a toddler

      @Colin Ivor Smith ya the guy that saw there was still some light left in vader so he refused to kill him, and helped him turn to the light side again, sensed his nephew was being pulled to the dark side and decided to kill him rather than help him. So dumb. The whole movie was slow moving ships being followed by other slow moving ships. Staring out with slow unprotected bombers that somehow fell downwards in zero gravity when shot, and dropped bombs that also fell I'm zero gravity. Because making sense is overrated.
      And Leia survived being blown out into space, floated back to a door apparently using the force, where the crew opened the door into the vacuum of space and weren't sucked out into space. Holdo, super-powered untrained Rey who's a jedi master, cantobite with rose and finn, and the Holdo maneuver that has never been done before, or even thought of before. Just the worst star wars ever made.

      @Colin Ivor Smith haha the sequels were so bad. I like the TFA too after the first time I saw it too. It certainly had its issues and was a remake of a new hope, but there was potential to expand on it and make it better in the sequels. But then TLJ came out. I hope they make those movies non cannon by putting them in a separate multiverse somehow.

      Agree but I think we will see a big jump in his force skills. He will be able to use the force more and I think will give Mando some basic force training so he can use the Dark Saber. I can see him telepathically communicating with din like he did with Ahsoka rather then talk. Will look the same but me more adept with his force skills

    The scene where Mando flys up to the transport and you see the child look out at him reminded me of a similar scene in the first Superman movie with Christopher Reeve when Superman was a teenager in Smallville. In that scene, it was a young Lois Lane on a train seeing a guy run through the corn fields at super speed. A little bit of extra info for that, the mother of Lois was the actor that played Lois Lane in the George Reeves (no relation) superman TV show (The Adventures of Superman.)

      I predict a chain with ...... a ball on the end. :P It has to be right ? Didn't he lose the RazorCrest control nob ? I think it will basically be a beskar necklace with a shiny silver ball for Grogu which will no doubt end up becoming a force weapon/moveable armor for Grogu to block blaster strikes as he harnesses the force

      @Fork That’s the thing, like I said my guess is Mando season 3’s first episode will take place after the events we are going to see in BoBF so that the overall story/timeline ‘continues’. That would make sense to me and I’d absolutely love it. But I think I’ve already said that so I’m pretty much repeating myself so we clearly have different opinions about it and that’s fine.

    I loved how many references there were in this episode to other popular media: The ringworld was out of Halo, Mandalore's distruction was very much reminiscent of both Terminator 2 (The Dome exploding) and the first one (the post-apocalyptic scene where the droids are killing off the remaining survivors), also the return of the N-1 starfighter and the scene where Mando flies it through the same "racetrack" Anakin was pod-racing in the Phantom Menace.

    I couldn't turn my eyes away once I saw The Mandalorian. I thought it was just going to be an opening scene of him but I was so happy to see it was a full episode. I'm just wondering if The Mandalorian got The Armorer to make that little silver cap (ball) Grogu liked to play with ? That's the only possible thing I could see as a gift for Grogu.
    I hope he'll be on again in the last two episodes, not just the finale.

    • Joseph Robichaud

      the armorer asking about helmet removal happened every time mando went back to the coven in his series. its almost ritualistic for her to ask... though i feel her knowledge of how close Mando got to Grogu made her suspect he may have removed it... they are a cult after all...

We’ve all been anxious to see Mando again, yet I am a little disappointed to not see Boba Fet. With only 8 episodes (could be wrong) there seems to be much to pack into the remaining 3 and I’m sure there will be many adventures with Boba left out. Perhaps there will be a Book of Boba Fett season 2? Thanks again for the content!!

    I just wanna say something about the little chain mail suit. That must have taken her a lot of time lol because contrary to popular belief chain mail was very costly and time consuming to make compared to plate armor. The only reason why it was used for a long time over plate was the fact no one knew how to make good plate armor (this is all after the fall of rome btw)

    I was so excited and surprised to see Mando as I had skipped the intro and didn't see the episode's title! I watched his entrance twice! And yes. This was the best episode of the series by far, and it didn't included the main character, which is really sad. I like Temuera Morrison as Boba Fett; however, this series hasn't done him justice.

  • Joey J

    Him struggling in the opening fight scene with the Dark Sabre makes a lot more sense in a second viewing because we learn about its "heavy weight"

    • David
      David 3 months ago

      @Szymon Kowalczyk Yes 100% this. I believe with the Dark Saber the deciding factor will be "coming into alignment" with its purpose. Which is that the blade serves as the "mantle of leadership" for Mandalore. Its not just a blade to use for random bounty hunting or your own selfish desires. The blade will resist somone using it for other purposes. In order for Din to be able to use it he will have to accept the responsibility of the blades purpose. To be the leader and "king" of Mandalore. Very much like the story of Excalibur or even Mjolnir from Thor. Same basic deal. Only the "worthy king" could pull it from the rock / lift it. I've seen light sabers give force flash backs in other star wars shows so I'm really hoping Din gets some full on "Force fever dream" type flash backs from the blade to see the story of the original holder Tarre Vizsla and ancient mandalore. Would be epic if we get like a full episode of ancient mandalore and jedi. Have a feeling with Din being an orphan there may be some unknown importance to his blood line similar to luke that the Armourer is also aware of

    • David
      David 3 months ago

      @Austin Whitehouse Starwars has shown many light sabers to have unique properties. Often picking up a sith saber can have strong negative effects on people. Basically they get effected by the dark side energy in the crystal. There is clearly something kind of similar going on here. The energy of the crystal and previous force users who have weilded it are influencing him. In other SW media they often show people who pick up another persons light saber having intense visions of the history of the blade and its holder. Really hoping as Din learns to wield it we get some of that here with flash backs to the original Jedi / Mandalorian who forged it - Tarre Vizsla. Would be epic to get some ancient mandalore and Jedi flashbacks. Possibly him "coming into alignment" with the "will" and "purpose" of the blade will allow him to wield it. Basically he has to be willing to take on the responsibility that comes with holding the blade before he will be able to use it properly which is to be a leader of Mandalore. Will get a bit of a Lord of the Rings Aragorn "Reluctant king" type story.

    • Anthony Gordon
      Anthony Gordon 4 months ago

      @Szymon Kowalczyk It makes me question even din djarin. It's weird cause the only successful mandalorian who wielded it was actually force sensitive. . But we all know that the force is in all of us. What makes you stronger is how close you are to a average or above average sensitive being and the measure of your mediclorian count in general. I have a feeling that people that are less force sensitive can yield it if they have a bare minimum mediclorian count. That is a ridiculous theory. A better theory is simply Din uses it more for self defense. The less contact he has , the less energy it produces, therefore his skill deal with more agility to master the saber which save the mass of the saber building up. What makes the saber great could be the wielders intellectual level of self defense.

    • Szymon Kowalczyk
      Szymon Kowalczyk 4 months ago +1

      @Anthony Gordon But weve seen other people fight with Darksaber and none was struggling as much as Din or Paz. More even, Sabine told after some time that blade "Feels lighter".
      Lightsabers are not just weapons. They have Kyber crystal as heart, crystal full of Force. So they are in some sense alive, and are boind to the Force and some wielder - they literaly have colour dependent of knight's character. Effect is not big in most cases, so even non Force-sensitives can use lightsabers, but seems like Darksaber is so old and so filled with Force that is almost sentient and can decide is wielder worth obey, or not.

    This episode was amazing! I loved everything about it. The cinematography was amazing. I loved the new ship mando has. It just looks so seggsy I never liked the original model but damn this could turn me N-1StarfighterSexual. It sounds amazing. Also a little thing I noticed is that now that mando doesnt have grogu in his care he is a lot more ruthless. He is more silent and it seems as if he is kind off depressed. That scene where he just sits there on the commercial flight its as if he is contemplating giving grogu away. The whole episode was great. I love pretty much everything. The only disappointing thing is they didnt include Boba in his own show. It also feels like mando is the highlight of the show at this point. I love this show but like we need to see some badass one liner boba soon. I still like how they are developing his character though.
