Writer: Jon Favreau
Director: Robert Rodriguez
Summary: Boba Fett, Din, Krrsantan Shand, and the Mods hold off the Pyke Syndicate in Freetown.
Review: I wanted to enjoy this one, I really did. The writers seemed like they were done with the detour, but…yeah this wasn’t good. It wasn’t bad either. I’m going to say this was mediocre.
This show really does feel like Favreau was playing with new toys, and then got bored and went back to his old ones. The last two episodes were not a good idea, and then this one really annoyed me.
It wasn’t the big seige, that was fine up until the end. It was Grogu. Having Grogu show up at the end ruins the second season of the Mandalorian and steals the spotlight from the true star. Having Grogu restore the status quo for Din annoyed me.
I’m not saying this has ruined Star Wars forever because that’s not true. But it was a disappointment. We’ll see if things improve when Kenobi on May 25.
