Yep agree

Do you like the present day stuff more or flashbacks?
I like both, I like the small scale western/dances with banthas story. I like the present day stuff.

I'd much rather they told the story like this, using the flash bacta tank, than sticking with one plot at a time. His coming back to the world is important but wouldn't be very star warsy.

I'm hanging for Obi Wan i think that's going to be the best Disney Stars Wars imo

Personally I think there is way more scope with Ahsoka Tano.

But if I had to have something, it would be Rogue Squadron set after, as in immediately after, the battle of endor.

Forgot about Ahsoka Tano that series is going to be great loved her in Mando

Rogue One
Obi Wan
Ahsoka

I think these 3 will be the best

There is a rumour going around that Harsion Ford might show up as Han but de-aged I really hope not just not needed.

Gotta admit Boba is a lousy crime lord give me Fennic turning on Boba and taking over
she would have kept the big ass Wookie and not let him go

Why do you keep putting bits of your post in spoiler?

Pacing issues have been mentioned a few times here, and I tend to agree. I feel there was quite a chunk missing between the Krrsantan fight and then the twins just turning up. He’s captured in the Rancor pit (just quietly I wouldn’t have wanted to be tasked with putting those cuffs/chains on him haha).

The twins leaving Tatooine surely is a ruse. To go to that length to establish them as the villains, they come to apologise, bring a gift, ditch/abandon Krrsantan, and then announce they’re leaving? Seems out of place.

Speaking of Krrsantan, I wondered how did he get into the palace. Maybe they forgot to lock the front door. Felt like the episode itself was too short, and could have benefitted from padding this section out further.

The first third I thought was great. Heavy feels in the flashback when he returned to the Tusken camp. I don’t know if there were any survivors, they made a point to show the body of the chief/leader. However I couldn’t locate that bad ass Tusken, the warrior who was training Boba and wreaked havoc against the Pykes on the train last episode.

I hope the Rancor is a plant to attack Boba, otherwise why give it to him? Just seems odd.

100% it is. The Rancor wasn't imprinting on old mate.

In other news, there's a supposed leaked Knights of Ren trailer. Might be fake but it looks good.

Haven't been back to have a proper look. Did the black Tusken warrior played by the stuntwoman appear amongst the corpses? The chief was there, but I don't recall seeing her...

There's no planned Knights of Ren show so I'd say it's fake.

We all know that Boba is going to ride the Rancor like a boss and wreck shop.

I'm hoping the last 4 episodes is just Boba wrecking havoc with his crime family iv'e had enough of this soft/good guy Boba

Don't think you're going to get your wish.

I dunno, you put him in a cage and he just sits there. The look he gave when Boba said to release him "The fu**?! You're letting me go?", makes me feel like he's going to play into the story more. Might end up joining them.

And Boba is definitely riding that Rancor like a boss!

Yes this theory would make a lot of sense. My recollection of the Bad Batch didn’t seem to indicate any of this “imprinting” stuff, unless I completely missed it or forgot.

From memory, that Rancor (referred to as a “baby” I believe) was charging about interacting with many other humanoid people. So it’s possible that’s all a lie, and the plan is for the Rancor to kill Boba.

The comment "Don't worry he'll be back" could be interpreted either way and I really hope they aren't going to just have a straight forward "Boba befriends Rancor, Boba rides Rancor".

I don't hate the idea of it trying to kill him but him 'taming' it, but I don't want it to be the straight forward "I want to ride it" thing they're going for.

Just scanned through the episode again. Couldn’t see the bodies of that warrior I mentioned earlier or the Tusken children. Hoping that means some of them escaped. Who knows though.

The Krrsantan fight was brutal. Not sure how Boba survived that punch with the taser knuckle duster, and then the bear hug of death. He’s fine just moments later.

When the bmx gang circled Krrsantan and they’re about to shape up, I gotta say, a part of me thinks it would’ve been so much better if BK tears through them all.

Definitely the best bit of the ep was the Krrsantan fight. Although how did he get into the Palace without Shand or the others realising? Regardless, was a great action piece.
