Every week I watch the latest episode of the latest Marvel or Star Wars Disney+ series at 3am but unfortunately yesterday, well, I fell asleep. I fell asleep hard. So I didn’t get around to a second viewing until today but when I did I liked what I watched.
I’m going to first announce that yes, this was my favorite episode so far. Whereas Chapter 2 was better but still had some personal kinks to iron out I found this particular episode delightful on so many levels.
The usage of droids in the episode was hilarious, the action finally felt fun to look at, and heck yeah, Boba’s ship came to play.
It felt like this episode made Boba Fett awesome again. There were moments when I was cheering with excitement and others when I was simply appreciating what I was seeing.
One of the quotes that stood out to me in the episode was when Fennec Shand was talking to him. She says to him, “Living with the Tuskens has made you soft.”
And he responds, “No. It’s made me strong.”
That’s it. That sold me on this new Boba Fett. I get it now. This Boba Fett understands the power of loyalty and now he’s creating his own tribe. I’m ready for these next three episodes and I think we’re in for quite a ride. Plus, that musical tease at the end is enough to make chills run down your spine.
I’ve got to say, this is the first episode of the series that legitimately made me happy all the way through. It tackled so much and I’m just ready for this war with the Pyke Syndicate to begin.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a fantastic day. May the Force be with you.
