Spoilers for Episode 14: The Tragedy
Maybe it’s just me but Grogu could just as easily have been meditating about eggs and blue cookies in that Jedi trance. He does seem to be a growing hungry boy. We’re all waiting for a Jedi to show up and he’s just like, hm, what do I want for dinner?
Either way he’s not getting it a while. That Gideon got him with those Dark Troopers was not a surprise but the far bigger, far nicer surprise came in the first couple of minutes the real return of Boba Fett.
And 2020 becomes the year I finally get Boba Fett. Although I contend it’s the year he finally does something to earn it.
Temuera Morrison is amazing and not to be superficial (I will anyway) but I could listen to him talk for a movie! Him and Fennec Shand (the also amazing Ming-Na Wen- you didn’t waste her Star Wars good on you!) wreck havoc on a platoon of Storm Troopers but we lose Grogu and even more heartbreakingly the Razor Crest.
But we are getting one hell of a team-up!
Although I think one of the most interesting moments came at the end when Boba (not wearing the helmet) tells Din about his father being a foundling and Mr. You Aren’t a Mandalorian if I Can See Any Skin is like “the armor is yours…”
I think his helmet is coming off and I hope it’s his choice to either rescue the kid or bond with him after and not, as I’ve heard other people wonder, because Gideon takes it off.
The only other thing with the team up is why Miggs? Bill Burr didn’t do much for me the first time around and I’m unsure why he’d be willing to help Mando, even if he does break him out, not the most trustworthy of persons here when you have the freaking sweetheart that is Cobb Vanth and his beautiful hair 🙂
Also since I was positive we wouldn’t see Boba again this season and we did (and are getting a team-up!!!) He’s got to go find Bo-Katan right? Or maybe their paths will intersect? Live action Bo-Katan and Boba fighting the remnants of the empire with the Dark Saber in play… and I have to wonder after that little tease at the end of the episode if Grogu is going to be the one to get the Dark Saber out of his hands?
Anyway all in all it was a great episode and I didn’t even have look at the credits to be like oh yeah, this is the Robert Rodriguez episode 🙂 Fingers crossed for a big ending!
Grinch-Meter: 10 Despite the Grogu-snatching. We all know he’s getting him back!
