The dog fight scene was really well done! I'm glad they're not cheaping out on any of the ship scenes.
The empire really likes to bomber Mando property..
World building Coruscant was cool, I'm sure there was a few easter eggs sprinkled in there, but I felt the doc arc should have been a 2 part. This episode introducing him, having him pitch his ideas to the NR, and failing. Then the next episode him sneaking out and doing at least one experiment before the betrayal. Also no one would let her stay in that room alone!!
I think Bo was riding that nice dopamine high from being welcomed back and no long exiled. Will be interesting to see how this plays out.
Lol good point.
So it sounds like Gideon got rescued before the trial. I'm wondering if the interceptors and bombers were his doing
Deepfake is a thing in-universe too.
I got super excited when I saw the Ep was going to be about 45 mins long, then quickly figured this was a side track ep just like they did to book of boba fett. The chic who turns on the doctor, reminds me visually of an adult Omega, and I while I don't really understand this part of the story (I don't care if I get burnt on the page about it) did it really need to take that long for them to explain what was going on? Walking through a park as such - cool I get the angle of showing her character has been transformed... but seriously talk about drag the chain. clearly anyone who watched understands what it leads to, but my question is, the tactics applied, will this guy turn out like what they did to bixx?
Also felt the end was super rushed and like others said - "here is some water" - sure it shimmered in the amourers pond, but I can see something is changing in Bo Katan, she saw the mythsaour, so if like the internet suggest, she tames it, she runs the show.
best part I enjoyed was here starfighter stopping in mid air and turning around for the attack, brilliant CGI work! love the fact they are showing some of her skill set and again, the fact R5 is a very nervous droid, how he pulled away when she talked about flying through the cliffs! they are doing an awesome job on R5.
I hope so, like to see some more mid air combat scenes.
But doctor's arc was a bit weak, hard not to comapre with Andor^both visually and storywise.
And it makes the new republic look so so stupid with no investigation into anything and leaving people alone in a room with someone in a brain shredding machine when the person being brain shredded was accusing them of betrayal.
Probably my least favourite episode of the show. I get that they are world building and probably have a "The secret empire inside the new republic" enemy to pit the Mandalorians against later but it focused a little too long on the doctors story to just brain shred him at the end.
I don't think the New Republic turned on him, it was just the woman that did. I would suspect she's still tied to Moff Gideon somehow and it was his order to fry his brain.
That’s who I meant. If she wanted him silenced, then why go through all of that? If they needed something from him first, then why silence him so fast? It didn’t make sense.
The doctor subplot seemed to be interesting but it amounted to nothing
Like if it did, i wouldn’t mind it at all but we didn’t learn anything about Gideon or the New Republic or anything other than one of the reformed individual who used to work for Gideon isn’t a nice person
they could’ve done a lot of things with the doctor plot like have a dialogue on why he was working on cloning Grogu etc to make it worthwhile
Not even visual cues, but none of the dialogue in that plot mattered and the doctor ended up dead so it’s not like his journey mattered since he will be a absent for future episodes
I’m pretty sure she didn’t get to keep the stuff. I can’t imagine the police letting someone keep stolen items just because they turned in the person that helped them steal them.
Probably because that is exactly what the empire would do. Gideon prob doesn’t want anyone to think that there are any remnants of the empire.
Remember in rise of skywalker when there are all the chambers of snoke clones? Maybe, since grogu clearly has many midichlorians they could clone the midichlorians or something and put them into snokes/other cloned beings.
yes that is my theory and i think the leading theory is that they want grogu to do something with palpatine / snoke
But this episode subplot did nothing towards explaining anything and if anyone would give exposition on why Gideon was after Grogu it was this scientist or Gideon himself
Oh, ya i get that, i should’ve only quoted part of what you said. that’s my bad
No he wasn't. The actor is still alive, credited and also not made younger. There wouldn't be the need to do that (which would cost money they wouldn't need to spend).
