So far, The Book of Boba Fett has been a slow paced wannabe Godfather who recruits goth desert gangs, not much else happens.
The Dave Filoni directed episode opens up with Timothy Olphant’s character interrogating some Pyke syndicates trying to pass his land.
Mando ventures to some planet where a somewhat off Luke Skywalker and Ahsoka Tano ( Rosario Dawson ) are training Grogu. We then spend the next 20 minutes of a Boba Fett centered show watching Luke train a little green thing that probably doesn’t understand anything that’s happening. It’s honestly a little cringe.
Mando goes back to Tatooine and meets with Boba, and Black Krrsantan, Fennec, the whole gang! PS, you know how Boba’s been saying more lines per minute than he did in The Empire Strikes Back? He’s say literally NOTHING!! Boba had less screentime in this episode than Luke Skywalker in TFA ( and he was advertised as 2nd main actor ).
Last but not least, we’ve got one heavy spoiler here. Go away if you want to know it for yourself!
Cad Bane is back, baby! He’s a mean, lean, old blue killing machine! Just ask Timothy Olyphant.
As uncentered as the episode was, the show is FINALLY starting to pay off!!! Cad Bane, the most badass bounty hunter in the galaxy has arrived will show off exactly why he’s as feared as he is. If you grew up on the Clone Wars like I did, you know just how amazing this is going to be.
I can’t wait for the finale! 9/10!
