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.

    Thoughts on this episode?
    I think it's going to build things up really well for the rest of The Book of Boba Fett. That said, there were a lot of things I found weird with this episode.

    -The power rangers don't look like they belong on Tatooine, maybe Coruscant.

    -Tired of Boba being such a yes man and not getting things done himself.

    -Why didn't he just fly over the mayor's assistant and hunt him down?

    - The Tuskens village burned was way too fast and short

    -Black Krrsantan was shown way weaker than he actually is. Also his scene was too short.

    -Boba coming out in a robe is wack and just not Boba imo. He would be suited up.

    -His back would be broken from Black Krrsantan, yet he seems super fine.

    -The twins bring him a massive gift? Just like that?

    -Rancor was cool. Loved that.

    Some other stuff I found sorta strange but I still like the show and I'm looking forward to episode 4 which hopefully should get rolling.

      maybe, as evidenced by fortuna, the hutts don't give a shit who the daimyo of tatooine is, so long as they can be controlled

      perhaps the hutts were like, 'hey, if boba wants it, let him prove it, BK! go whip his ass a little bit, but DONT kill him, if he really wants the job, he'll come to us with his tail between his legs..."

      perhaps they didn't expect boba to CAPTURE BK, which is why they are using the rancor now: plays like a TOTAL trojan horse, where if Boba doesn't do what he is told, the rancor goes apeshit...what if the rancor had been abused, and conditioned: the next guy you see is your target, but NOT until your HANDLER says so!...why else is the rancor/handler a package deal?

      Nah F that, if kids these days don't want or accept it from the origins they should get TF off it and seek/create a new IP instead of whining for it to be converted into a mockery of what it was.

    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.

      Boba has been left for dead learned from Sand people and betrayed by everyone that hired him. At nearly 60 yrs old its not out of realm for a character to grow older and wiser. This notion that Boba should be his comic book version is crazy. I guess men can't evolve into better men as they age. Star wars fans really complain about everything. If I was a top writer for tv& movies I would want nothing to do with Star wars the fans litterly want story to be fan fiction.

    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.

    This ep. was kind of all over the place. I feel like the story with the tuscans definitely could've been structured better. I did really like the score of the episode though, definitely elevated the important scenes. I agree with you that the biker gang could've worked, but they don't really fit in on Tatooine.

    • MSephiroth
      MSephiroth 10 days ago

      @Verbal Kint I mean, it's only since a few years now, after watching the movies like 20 times at least, lol. But also from other media around the time and stuff. It just felt like he was building to it, and like I said, then suddenly was like: "Nah." and it's just weird to me. There's just certain aspects with ROTJ like the Ewoks and such, that feel sort of... Rushed to me almost, as it's the best way of describing it. It's basically why it's my least favorite. Because it could have been perfect, but there's just things in it, that I guess I'm then kind ofa nitpicker about.
      And I don't hate the Ewoks exactly, but it just took me so out of it, and it just takes away so much... Gravitas from the final battle. Whereas, again, to me I think that Wookies would have only added to that.

      I mean, that could definitely explain that then, yeah. And I think the Tuskens might have been too early, but at the same time, I think that has to do as well with not wanting to seem like milking that storyline, and also wanting to build on how the female Tusken seems to have survived. I think it also just showed that at that point, Boba just really, REALLY did not at all see it coming. Something I feel like he probably at that point blamed himself for.
      Pacing to me is always such a hard thing to really judge. I feel like that is more of a writing decision differing from writer to writer. But that could be the writer in me speaking.
      And Krrsantan I do admit could have been more brutal. But he was still kicking ass. And when the mods showed up, he showed that he was just really surprised, as I think the Twins told him that there would be no one there, apart from the Gammoreans and Fennec.
      Still not entirely excusing it, but still. Just trying to explain how I see it and thought of it then.
      So yeah, there's definitely some issues there, but for me it luckily didn't take away from me still loving it. Also because I know it's just building to more and better things as well.

      Hmm, yeah, I can kinda see that. I also myself took that as Boba really just making the comment before realizing, and that he seemed to think that the teens were forced into taking the parts. Maybe because he thought the guy had lost his original eye, isntead of them seeing it as an upgrade.
      And I do sort of see what you mean. But I think that the guy talking that way, is supposed to hint again at them being from another planet. Like Correlia as I saw someone mention before. Which would also be sort of for that Han connection in a way.
      And also, even from fans there's been plenty of criticism on some of George's dialogue. So, I just think that they're trying to improve on that after all. Which, of course some will like more than others.
      And again, that's not to complain or hate on George, but it was just one of his weakest skills. Even though there's plenty of lines that I absolutely love. There's also those that I can definitely see where people come from.
      But just like I can see where you're coming from as well.

    • Verbal Kint
      Verbal Kint 10 days ago

      @MSephiroth Your idea about the Wookies is pretty interesting, and thinking about it now I'm surprised George didn't do anything similar to that. I don't really dislike the Ewoks though.

      I've seen some Old Republic gameplay and it never really clicked with me, so that may be why I also don't really like the design the gang has. But overall I just didn't really like this episode, I felt like the pacing was off, killing the tuskens too early, Black Krrsantan was kind of nerfed, you already know how I feel about the motorcycle gang.

      There was one scene in particular that really irked me, near the end when the cyborg is spying on the Pykes and talks to Boba through the hologram, and they make that silly joke about the eye, and then the guy replies with "it's alright, mate" I was just floored, that was just not needed. That's one gripe I have with Disney era star wars, the dialogue has become less sophisticated, characters speak too much like people from Earth. I don't know, maybe I'm a nitpicker but I just feel like they're adding an extra ingredient to the formula that isn't needed,

    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.
    2. Was not a fan of the street gang. Agree they seem out of place, clean, and even if cyborgs I would expect they'd blend in more to the surroundings or at least have a threatening aura before being offered a job, not just talk. They felt like a pack of poisonous dart frogs. Like maybe they're dangerous but only if you fried and ate them.
    3. Rancor seems suspicious. Seems a parallel to pit bulls, "they're raised to fight" but if the rancor had already imprinted on its trainer than perhaps there's two masters, which could get dicey if the trainer is compromised.
    4. Why was not a single person around to help Boba- where were they? I can believe that an assassin can get in without being seen but maybe show the progression so it doesn't seem weak on everyone else's part (being that Boba has handpicked this team so far).
    5. Chase was a bit slow and the poison dart frogs aren't super great at their job. But they are teenagers with money for cyborg parts and pretty bikes so maybe I'm giving them too much credit.
    I'm sure I have more but I'll need to review again.

      how coool would it be to have a tusken raider alongside boba fett, we’ve never seen a tusken raider character like that before, that would be sick and unorthodox asf bc they only stay on the outskirts.

    I kinda like the way he’s kind of a “yes man” maybe he was humbled by his experience after escaping the sarlac.

    That “chase” scene was pretty weird though.

  • Highspeed Author Travis Hightower

    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.

    The writers could have fixed this in the show, but I get the sense they are rushing things a bit.

    If they had another go at the draft, all it would take is a few lines of discussion where Fennick doubts them, and as they chase starts, a quick shot of Fennick asking Boba "You aren't going to chase them?"

    And then Boba says something like "No. Let them prove themselves."

    Which . . . Boba's dialogue should be a little more minimalistic than it sometimes is on this show.

    They should have made him a cruel, ruthless, and merciless man like he should be from the very beginning. Then slowly progress to become a more kind and gentle as the show goes on, as he finally found someone he care like how he cared for his father.

    Similar to the Mandalorian but more crime involved.

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

    And the Vespa gang felt so out of place. Not just the Vespa but the character design themselves look out of place. Like they took humans from earth and placed them in the Star Wars universe. But that’s a minor issue really.

    My biggest concern is Boba himself and his character. He seems sort of incompetent. Being a crime lord or whatever isn’t a moral job anyway so his nice guy approach is at odds with the role itself. If he wants to be a good guy, chose a different career. As it is he just comes off weak and out his element completely. I just feel frustrated with Boba getting his ass kicked all the time and making questionable decisions. I wanna see Boba hold his own. He is not a weak character.

    I was expecting a more gritty show about Boba and the darker under belly of Star Wars, but 3 episodes in, and we have Boba with a rowdy crew of teenagers on Vespas who look like Doctor Who assistants. Meanwhile watching Boba is like watching your grandad slowly turn senile and struggling to walk up the stairs. Not what I pictured going into this show if I’m being honest.

    I still like the show overall and I hope it all comes together but this episode stunk.

      How would we see boba become a crime lord if he didn’t have a rag tag crew of nobodies to do his bidding. It’s not like he already has a vast empire of people working for him. He usurped a crime boss, and we’ve only seen two guards remain loyal to him. Lower your expectations for a kids show.

    aqueen04 10 days ago +18

    Yeah, I was pretty underwhelmed by this episode too. I was very disappointed to see the Tuskens get wiped out - after all that effort to flesh them out, to suddenly wipe them out just to enhance Boba's man pain seems like a real waste. I like the concept of a bunch of biker teens joining up with Boba - the man definitely needs more allies beyond Fennec and the 2 Gammorians - the results were, like you said, much too clean. These kids would have fit much better on Coruscant. Tatooine teens need a much more rough look to fit the scene. And the chase scene was boring as all get out. They could have cut it in half and had Boba fly over and land in the speeder, get the info, and then leap out before the crash. And yes, Boba needs to show his more ruthless, kickass side. He wants to rule with respect, while Fennec says that fear is what he needs to get the job done. I'd say it probably needs to be a mix of the two.

    Here's hoping for better next week.

      @Verbal Kint Coruscant is literally a cyberpunk city equipped with an under city full of zombies and ogres. The prequels were filled with 50’s iconography, including a vintage diner.

Can only imagine what his empire will look like by the end of the season. And if we see him again in Mando, that'll be something.

    The thought I have on Mace Windu is that he could survive if Filoni wants Ahsoka and Ezra to remove him from the timeline and wish him away to the future. Though that's stupid... but the WBW can do this because we don't see Windu's body we can't confirm his death like we can with say Ki Adi and Aayla whom we see murdered to the point that they go limp. Windu disappeared outside of that window.

      Depending on what material and George's own words you take into account Boba is not Madalorian and neither was Jengo, despite material saying otherwise George himself said no. I thought this series was going to clear that up, but it hasn't and missed a great opportunity to do so. Could have been a much better and less sleepy story line. If they would have dropped what George said and went back to the Jengo storyline with the "true mandos" then Boba would have been one of the last true Mandelorians. Also remember the helmet thing is a sect of Mandelorian that some call a cult. It would have been interesting if they were actually the true Mandelorians and Din Jarin ends up teaching Boba "The Way" or at least about his heritage. That I could see changing how Boba reacts, he'd still be ruthless but have a code and he could also survive the criminal underworld and be a rightful leader with followers that at times can be fairly dark and shady.

      Boba in this series acknowledges the importance of gaining respect...but we all are still waiting for attempts to earn it. Maybe instead of remembering clips as a kid, he needs to remember Empire Strikes Back and take some notes! Bc THAT Boba is certainly not in this series.

      @Rodrigo Rodriguez you can’t gain respect as a crime lord…you’re dealing with criminals, and other criminals who are leaders.

Even making boba a crime lord doesn’t even make sense in truth. Disney should have went with his old EU self.

    I still really like the series, but I can see, why many people are getting impatient. Boba being pretty passive (as a crime lord) for three whole episodes now, might be justified from a story telling perspective. But even I rolled my eyes a little when it happened again and again in this recent episode. There should have been at least one scene where he loses his patience. Perhaps by beating up the greedy shop owner. Or after being betrayed by the mayors assistant.

    At this point in the series there should be at least some hints that under all of Boba's nice behavior there still is some rage boiling. The nice fassade shoud start showing cracks. Doesn't mean that he has to be in full rage mode for the rest of the series. In the end he could find his way back to kindness and patience, realizing that giving into his rage again was the wrong way. But such a development would be much more satisfying if Boba allowed the rage to take over for at least a couple of episodes.

I'm hoping there is a reason for this. I imagine there is and it will be explained more clearly. I am still loving this series and am so excited they mentioned the Night Sisters!

    Definitely felt like more of a filler episode and they threw black krrsantan in there just to make things interesting. Also the tuskans being killed off felt like it happened too soon. Weird episode but hopefully will set up better things.

    I didn't think the episode was that bad until the biker gang showed up. Seeing them with each of their own colored bikes just felt so childish. And that chase was sooo slow and cheesy.

      @Giantatom well, anakin builded "fastest speeder" and full android being slave and had propably even less money than power rangers gang. If he could get some parts like about 40 years earlier, they could do it now. And they make it look cool, cause they are teenagers, good-looking things are more important for them than good-working things. i believe you can do good looking things on tatooine, but it's not practical, so most of the people just can't be arsed. But that just an idea.

    I agree with you on a lot here. The episode felt out of place. I honestly feel like the driving force of this show has been the tusken story line, it was unique and unpredictable, whereas the “modern day” story feels unstable, messy, inconsistent.

    Good point that they make more sense on Coruscant (sorta). And speaking of, neither series have yet to revisit the big city, or cloud city! Lot of interesting architectural opportunities at both. The vibes are becoming more corny and childish, more "Disney" than ever.

    I guess Denis Villeneuve knew where to pick up the ball.

    I love that you called them power rangers! I wish they had done them differently and maybe they become less eccentric as they work with Boba. I absolutely hated the “chase scene” and agree that Boba is being way too soft. This is the same guy who’s life ambition was to kill a Jedi counsel member? Who as a teen killed more people than Boba has since getting out of the pit? I hope this series does him justice. Honestly other than Boba, I’ve really enjoyed the show up until this episode!

    In episode 3 they were both shown as weak (the way BK ran into the dessert after being released was comical)

    I am getting 2 different directors vibes, similar how the last Jedi killed the hype for the sequels after a decent/ok start with the force awakens

    Feels like Dave feloni was not part of this episode, purely speculating I don’t know who directs and produces this show ,

    as for his " change in heart" all keep saying even in a lot of lore even though he was quick to temper and fought well he is recovering from something and in later years did choose less aggressive methods unless had to. the try to rule with respect is actually some of the strongest ways to rule fear will bring obedience but respect brings loyalty as the saying goes.

    Maybe fennec was absent her post guarding boba for some reason.

    I'm not sure you got the timeline right. Maybe I misunderstood what you said, but did you say the events of the Mandalorian take place 5 years after the events of TBOBF? Because we see in episode 4 Boba rescuing Shand during the 'flashback timeline.' So I don't think 5 years is correct, it seems like TBOBF is taking place at roughly the same time as the Mandalorian.

  • Jaden Pond

    I was really disappointed with this episode especially after the last one. The relationship that was built between Boba and the Tuskens was awesome. Then they all just get killed off? Imagine if Boba had recruited some of the tuskens to be his personal guard. Jabba’s palace could have been filled with the sand people which would have attributed more power to Fett. It would also have been an amazing scene.

      @MalBasedValentine but imagine if that female tuscan rider is been kept hostage leia style and results that behind all those ropes and masks you find out she is a pocahontas like beauty o something like that i think it could be as memorable as mando removing his helmet for the first time or that slave leia scene. Dont know..., this series is leaning on them not being that savage so why not? Or maybe she is Fenec??

    • Jon Fernandez
      Jon Fernandez 12 days ago +2

      I cannot agree more - what a waste of resources. If an attack on the Tuscan Raider tribe is integral to the rest of this season, have a few survive and join Boba Fett as you mentioned.

      I'm a huge Fett fan - mercenaries and bounty hunters are the only reason I care for Star Wars.

      Idk who the hell the disney writers are attempting to develop in this series, but it's clearly NOT Boba Fett.

      I get that the sarlacc pit experience may have been near death and he's running on fumes rn trying to recover. But if Fett's going to be as physically inept as I've seen so far for the entire series!? Hard pass.

I was already thinking that and didn’t know it was the same director until after the episode. This was a spy kids Star Wars.

    Although the chase scene did feel slow it felt real. Like it felt like they where actually on a speeder, and the way the bikes hovered felt sooo real to me. I honestly didn't think the episode was as bad as everyone says it is. Like come on guy did you really think you where gonna watch a Disney show with a character ripping off another characters head or arms off? Give me a break guy like be glad he's cannon hahahah yeah the street gang did seem outa place a bit but again life changes and to me feel like the characters in the show are real people and want to express themselves like think about it, the way they dress and what not is definitely a unique gang on the planet. Remember the gang is teenagers so it fits.
    However I do wanna see boba kick some ass but he is pretty banged up.

    I really didn’t like this episode and feel like it is giving us a glimpse in a bad direction it might take. The bikes the crew were riding on were too colorful to for a place like Tattooine, and in my opinion I feel like they could of designed so much more dark and bad ass people to work for Boba Fett than the ones introduced into this episode. Every time I saw the punk rock girl, I felt like I was watching a crossover of Stranger Things and Star Wars. Plus this episodes pacing was really bad. Really wish they would focus more on thing that happened at Kamino while Boba was growing up, and also Bobas early bounty hunter days.

      @shane nelson He was a bounty hunter and a crime lord, one of the most feared in all the galaxy, based on classic Clint Eastwood style characters, they got the guy who played Jake the muss to tackle the role, yet there's nothing to fear.
      In the original trilogy he let off a sense that he would, if given the chance, disintegrate you.
      He was a legend, and what made the legend was the untold stories, but now everything is set in stone and there's no return, we have to watch it all unfold into canon.

      @The Star Wars 1977 I agree, friend. Too bad all hope for that was lost once Disney bought it. I feel like I’ve been going through a really tough breakup over time. The person I love is slowly just changing into someone I don’t recognize and I have to come to grips with the fact that they’re just different now. As an artist, I respect the decision making with the characters story but as a Star Wars fan it pains me that we aren’t getting more gritty details. Star Wars was made with kids in mind but it was never FOR kids. We watched Anakin slaughter tuskens and in the next movie it was children. The Wookiee should’ve crushed boba and left him paralyzed in the bacta tank.

      Something as simple as Jango teaching Boba how to fire a blaster at Womp rats on tatooine, then as it gets dark they cook it over a fire and we get some fatherly wisdom passed on between the boys, simplistic yet somehow better than anything we've seen.
      whoever wrote the scripts and events for Red Dead Redemption should really be writing for Boba, from cannibalism to slavery, those are the dark times we want to see in this universe.

    Disney would never allow it but I would love if Season 2 was Boba doing bounty work on Courasaunt and other planets during his prime. They already have the suit as shown in the start of the first episode. A much darker more classic Boba would be what we see though Disney wouldn't like us rooting for a shady character doing questionable things.

    I feel like Boba plays more as a grandpa. We've seen him in his robe, he acts.. well I wouldn't say lazy...? More like too laid back. He acts all nice and he kind of acts like he doesn't know how to be a crime lord/boss. I agree, I want Boba to appear a lot more badass and powerful like he was in The Mandalorian. I really like the show, though it's getting a little more interesting. But I just wish they could make boba be more active since he has his jetpack and everything. And I can't wait till we find out where he found the Slave I again in his bacta tank flashbacks. I just don't want him looking too much like a dad or a grandpa. I get it, the actor is much older now but still.

    It feels like such a disconnect from the Boba in films. This was the man that Vader had to tell “No disintegrations”. The most feared Bounty Hunter in the galaxy that had Han Solo Panicking when Chewy told him Boba Fett was behind him! I also don’t get why he isn’t respected, sure he’s a new leader but surely his bounty hunting reputation would be enough to know he is the real deal. Other organisations I’m sure would question his leadership skills but not his ruthlessness. Feels like the writers have missed a beat so far.
    The Mandalorian is a space western…Boba fits into that genre way better. I’d have even been ok with a villain of the week type deal, with Boba staking out and bringing in bounties working towards a big bad at the end.

      @Mathjestic Gaming yeah you do raise some fair points. I guess him not killing the mayor was him trying to see whether the hutts or the mayor was behind everything. The reason he's prob disrespected is because he refuses to be carried on a litter and people see him as very inexperienced and vulnerable, and since he doesn't want to rule with fear like Jabba, i guess more people think its fine to voice their disrespects. I do agree with you a lot since in the mandolorian, we see Boba ruthlessly killing stormtroopers. I guess Dave Filoni and Jon Favreu wanted to make a more likeable character who doesn't want to kill, since its on Disney.

I just can't really connect with how his character is being portrayed in the series. I get that he's meant to have changed but I fail to see how he'd just turn into a complete weak noodle

    To your point early on about how this episode might just be building things for later on - I agree with it, and I really don't like how most of these shows are driven like that. When a show is only 7 or 8 episodes, every episode should be epic, rather than just slowly building along to one, big, epic moment at the end. I feel like that's been the formula for shows forever, and it needs to be done away with. Or, at least, if you're going to build up to some big fight, encounter, war, whatever, make it an epic, enjoyable ride every step of the way to get there.

    The one good thing about the chase scene was the reference to Anakin’s podrace in Menace, but the worst thing in my opinion was actually how Ludwig Gorranson (I prob butchered the spelling) just copied and pasted breakbeat music into that chase. That stuff felt really out of place in Star Wars, and I hope it’s a one-time thing
