Boba Fett Episode 3 BREAKDOWN (DIDN'T LIKE IT)

  • Published on Jan 11, 2022
  • So tonight’s episode was by far my least favourite. It was slow, with some scenes of epic ness, but even those with black krrsantan was too short and honestly not true to his character. He would have broken boba’s back, as well as ripped the heads off the gammoreans and the power ranger biker gang.
    Thre’s a lot to discuss so let’s get to it.
    First we see the mechanical spider carrying a brain in red liquid. This is a B’omarr Monk, we saw them in the return of the Jedi. These were monks that sought enlightenment so much that they figured leaving their body and resorting to just a brain would allow this to be more possible. They were an interesting order. The older the monk, the less legs the spider bot had. These monks knew how to regenerate, and possessed many secrets of regeneration.
    Jabba locked them up beneath his palace, so now that we see them roaming around, maybe boba has freed them. Perhaps they will be a confident to Boba or something in episode 4.

    We first learn that under the rule of bib Fortuna, he was too weak compared to Jabba, so he teamed up with others and divided mos espa into quadrants. Trandoshans control the city centre, the qualmish took the worker’s district, and klatoonians took the star port and upper sprawl. While the division wasn’t under the full control of bib like it was for Jabba, each section’s ruler gave tribute to the mayor mok shaiz.

    Boba is visited by a townsmen who informs him a band of thugs are stealing his inventory, which is water. So Boba goes out to apprehend the thugs, and finds a bunch of teenagers in a street gang with colourful and shiny speeders. The gang are cyborgs. Basically this scene is like from cyberpunk, and I felt it was super unfitting to the sands of Tatooine. If the gang looked like they just walked off the set of mad max I could definitely be down with this, but in my opinion it was just silly, childish, and didn’t fit on Tatooine. I could see them on Coruscant, but not here. There were too clean and hip looking. Maybe it’s an Easter egg for American graffiti, George Lucas’s movie before a new hope, as the cars there were bright coloured too, but either way I don’t think it fits int he show.

    Anyways, they tell Boba they have no jobs, despite being in the workers district. So, he offers them a job to work for him. The same shop keeper who got robbed comes out whining, and Boba pays him $500 credits to bugger off. He doesn’t seem happy and might be vengeful, but we’ll see. At this point I see what Boba is doing, he’s recruiting, he’s building an army. That said, I’m tired of him being so nice. I wanna see the bad ass Boba we’ve all seen in comics. He needs to stop being such a yes man, and be a little more callous. Again, I get he’s building an army, like a godfather, but I just wanna see gun slinging Boba.

    We get Boba in his bacta and see another flashback of Kamino, where Jango Fett, Boba Fett’s father is taking off in the slave 1, we see young Boba running to the window, and his face reflected like in the last episode. Only to be replaced with his face today, I think he’s still haunted by the death of his father, and perhaps holds resentment to the one who took him too soon, Mace Windu. I don’t want to see Mace show up, while it’d be cool, it would ruin the original trilogy because I’d be wondering why he wasn’t o the front lines with Luke to kill Vader and Palpatine.

    Boba leaves the Tusken village on a Bantha to seek the Pykes. As he cross the town we see Peli Motto walk by with the pit droids. She was in the mandalorian season 1. It’s connecting how we eventually see the boots of Boba Fett save Fennec Shand. These flashbacks will tell the backstory while explaining the current story.

    Boba speaks with the pyke and is informed the Nikto sand riders gang have claimed their tax from the Pykes and offered safety in return, the same safety Boba offered the Pykes. The Pykes want to have safe travels, but they don’t want to be taken advantage of, so Boba needs to get rid of the Nicta gang first, so his tusken friends get their right of pay.

    Boba returns to the village and sees it in smoke and ashes. The tuskens have been slain by the Nicta sand riders, giving some flashbacks of Anakin and his raid on the Sand People in attack of the clone. Boba walks through and sees them all dead, including the leader. However, the warrior female is nowhere to be seen. I think she survived and will show up later to join Boba. Boba cries and burns them giving them a burial. Boba is ready for war with the Nicta, and I’m enjoying the two timelines we’re getting. Twice the timelines, double the action.

    The floating vespas felt out of place. I loved Black Krrsantan though. And a pet Rancor, LOLOL can’t wait to see him ride it like Darth Bane did.

    If they wanted to make him a "godfather" type of crime boss, then I'd be fine, BUT he's simply too soft. He let the same dude cross him like 2 or 3 times and didn't even do anything about it.

    I think they took a step backwards with Boba's character.

    I was surprised they didn't have Boba wear his armor more often.

    The fact that Boba came through the Wookiee attack pretty much unharmed really took me out of the story. He should have been paralyzed, and for a brief moment I thought that's where they were going and I was fascinated....but nope. He's fine.

    I think that Vespa girl is related to Obi Wan, because she definitely had the high ground on the mayor’s majordomo.

    I actually laughed during the chase scene because it was playing very hype music like it was a crazy chase scene but it just looked like they were going 16mph on these extremely out of place vibrant bikes lol

    Great breakdown of the episode. The kid moped gang was truly awful.

    I think the reason Boba is so nice now is so that when he does go crazy it’ll be more rewarding. It’s silly, but hopefully it’ll work. Idk why Black K was so weak tho that was just stupid..

    I was totally brought out of it when I saw the spy kid, Rodrick looking kids. Also I found it off putting how no one noticed when Krrsatan, I guess he just walked through the front door, past the kids and two guards

    So glad you called out nice guy Boba. So far, Fennec Shand is more like old school Boba than new school Boba is.

    I thought this episode was alright. It wasn't perfect, but I enjoyed it. I didn't think about Black Krrsantan being underpowered while watching the episode, but now that it's been mentioned, I also wonder if he was fighting that way on purpose. I was super excited to see Danny Trejo in Star Wars. I had always wondered what type of character he would play in Star Wars, and I think a rancor trainer is a perfect fit for him. I will admit that the bike chase was a bit underwhelming, but I've always wanted to see a full on bike chase like this in Star Wars. Beggars can't be choosers.

    I didn’t like it. It feels like Boba is becoming a background character in his own show.

    My theory: Rancor is not a youth and has already been trained. Sent there to find an opportunity to kill boba. However, I think boba will actually earn the rancor’s trust and it will stick with him

    I feel like Boba is kind of finding himself again. The Sarlacc pit and spending years with the Sand People have made him different, but the more time he spends in his old underworld surroundings the more the old ruthless Boba Fett will come out, just with a lot more wisdom.

    1. Hoping the Tusken kid is out there somewhere, the stick was thrown into the fire (maybe to spare seeing a child's death) but it's possible that since he's identified using the red scarf he will show up again later with the Warrior and Boba will still have allies/kin/family among the Tuskens.

    Curious: what made you think it was the Jawas putting the stormtrooper helmets on the spikes? They clearly showed a man putting it on a spike.

    Boba probably wanted to test his new kids to see how good they were, is my thought. Even though they helped him against BK - I think he considered himself (and the kids) lucky.

    100% agreed with the speeders they just weren’t right for tattooine would have been better as old modified imperial speeder bikes
