Writer: Jon Favreau
Director: Steph Green
Summary: Fett and Shand interrogate their would-be assassin, who claims that he was sent by Mok Shaiz, the Mayor of Mos Espa. Shaiz of course denies this. Fett then meets two of Jabba’s cousins, the Twins, who want to reclaim his throne.
In the flashback plot, Fett steals some speeders and teaches the Tuskens to ride them. After a successful train raid, Fett performs the Tuskens’ initiation ritual and is admitted into the tribe.
Review: I liked this better than the premiere, and I liked the premiere. The Twins had a great introduction. I doubt we’ve seen the last of them.
I’d heard somewhere that Favreau doesn’t like to have flashbacks. The flashbacks are still entertaining, though. I like all this attention to the Tusken culture, and I’m glad we’re getting both of these plots. I’m liking this show a lot.
