Boba TV show isn't that great, so they plopped a Mando episode right in the middle? That was weird.

Ep was really good though, but the helmet thing is super odd and jarring. "Oh hey you've spent years living the Mando way and earned all your Beskar blah blah blah. Oh wait, you took you hosed a Jawa once? You're cast out of the Mando order, now get the gently caress out." Wait what?

She’s just playing it up and acting the part. You can almost hear a hint of amusement in her voice when she tells him where to go.

I'm reminded of her amused "This is the Way" to guilt Mando into taking care of Grogu in season 1.

She's like his mom. "This is the way" is just Mando speak for "you're a big boy now, you can figure this stuff out on your own."

A somehow even more passive-aggressive “poor planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part”

I love how this episode continued the tradition of everything in the Mandalorian being a video game.

“Time to go turn in the ‘Deliver Grogu’ quest, while I’m here I need to level my Swordsmanship skill and also have the merchant craft my spear into companion armor. Okay, now that that’s done, time for this sidequest on Tattooine to regain fast travel ability.”

Speaking of games, there’s no way they would include a BD droid in this episode without also having plans for a Cal Kestis appearance somewhere in the new EU, right?

Yep, I kept laughing as I recognized these exact same video game beats as the episode progressed.

And Fallen Order is already canon in the new EU, if I remember right. I don't know if they have an overarching plan yet, but it has several tie-ins to existing canon like Saw Gerrera, Bracca, K security droids, and Ilum. I think so far the only thing taken FROM the game and put into canon media (besides BD) is Bracca, but Cal's lightsaber was an option in a fan vote for a Galaxy's Edge replica.

All new books, comics, and video games are canon unless they've been retconned since or are branded to imply non-canon status like LEGO and Visions.

I'm reading it as her realising that sure she's the big deal armourer and all that so she knows the way, but he's Mandalore so if he says she's wrong... she's wrong. He has to GTFO before he realises that he's the boss now and takes what's left of her power away.

All one dumbass of it.

Yeah somehow I don't think a fundamentalist sect that began by splitting off from another fundamentalist sect when they gained power and weren't fundamentalist enough is going to really care about what Mandalore thinks, if he's not fundamentalist enough. They'd just understand him as being a pretender to the title.

Goddammit. Now I want to see this scene in the shows.

All one dumb-rear end of it.

The Armorer is a person has the skills to forge Beskar into wearable blaster/Lightersaber-proof armor. If she cared about conventional wealth/power she could write her own ticket anywhere in the galaxy. I think this is much more about pushing Mando into fulfilling what she sees as his destiny to unite the Mandalorians under the aegis of The Way.

Lol that the best episode of BoBF so far is the one that was just a Mandalorian Season 2->3 interlude. I don't dislike this show, particularly, but Boba is really giving off substitute teacher vibes in all his mobster scenes.

Maybe this guy that flies is just sort of passing through, you know?




He has directly stated his motivation but it still doesn't seem like he's super interested in being the boss.

It feels really convenient that every time he has almost been outmatched by assassins, the people trying to kill him simply didn't try to kill him earlier before he could hire anybody

I'm really enjoying it and my first post about it has to be a nitpick just because there's so much that I liked that it'd feel like work to express all of it. I liked the Tusken Raider scenes in episode two
