    A bit exciting seeing Boba Fett come back. He was brutal with his weird staff thing. That has to be the first time we've seen armor on stormtroopers get smashed like that and the effect was pretty sweet. Seeing the other troopers get crushed by a boulder was also great. Seeing Boba back in action in full armor just obliterating a whole squad of troopers and taking down two whole transports on his own was fantastic.

    Poor Mando losing his ship was pretty sad. It had gone through quite a lot this season and last and was almost like a third main character of the show.

    I wonder who baby Yoda ended up contacting. There are only a couple possibilities as far as I'm aware. My understanding is that the only folks besides Ahsoka that may be around are Luke Skywalker and Ezra Bridger from Rebels right unless they are bringing back someone like Mace Windu back from the dead? It also kinda felt that they were hinting at Baby Yoda having a bit of a dark streak again when he force choked a couple of troopers at the very end.

    We are definitely set-up for a really exciting two-part finale. Bringing together the various characters from the last two seasons for a potential assault on an imperial cruiser will be fun.

      The weird staff looks like the Tusken Raider staff, which would make sense since he had to survive for years on Tatooine.

    I nearly cried when they blew up the Razorcrest. I really liked that ship, I have the Lego set and was even tempted by the Haslabs bid. They just disintegrated it man, that was the tragedy!...

    Boba Fett has always been my favorite Star Wars character. I've got a ton of Boba Fett stuff all over my office and even got a mythosaur skull tattooed on my leg years ago in his honor. But then...

    Boba Fett has always been my favorite Star Wars character. I've got a ton of Boba Fett stuff all over my office and even got a mythosaur skull tattooed on my leg years ago in his honor. But then The Mandalorian happened and I kind of lost interest because Din Djarin was just a more interesting character. All the mystique and badassedry of Boba, but a much more interesting character.

    But after this episode? I'm back on team Boba Fett for life.

      Hell yeah, Boba Fett was far more badass in this episode than any Star Wars movie to date. It was great seeing him fully let loose.

    Loved the nod to OG Dark Forces — one of the first games I played as a kid.
