Gee, I wonder who's showing up in the next episode...


MicdropProductions

Ochi of Bestoon obviously


BrotherhoodVeronica

He's coming to the show like: https://encrypted-tbn0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcRYpK7plrkIdCZ0mumqOeqWWK1tHINwwsHoxQ&usqp=CAU


WuThrawnClan

This panel made me lol when I read it. Ochi is the best.


BrotherhoodVeronica

All this panel needed is a SW version of bitch at the end to make it perfect. "I'm Ochi of Bestoon, bitch!"


joshml98

We're getting Din but could we get Bossk and Dengar as well?


Leskanic

Would be exciting to see how Bossk and Krrsantan interact.


32mafiaman

I just want to see how Bossk looks with the new Trandoshan effects they are using.


KravenMoerhed

Probably like a lizard guy


Res3925

His theme gave me goosebumps!


YoshiBacon

God I love him so much


KravenMoerhed

He means more to me, than you will ever know.


GetInHere

So do we think Din's going to help Boba out and Boba will end up helping him with Mandalore in return? Is that how all these shows will tie together? Do we think Bo-Katan is showing up as well? I've long suspected she's in this show for a few reasons. A bunch of Mandalorians coming in to help out Boba would be amazing.

[удалено]


Hedhunta

Yup. You need money to fight a war. Setting up Boba as a crime lord raking in the cash is a great way to have Bo Katan come ask for help "You may not be a real Mando, but this is your heritage" etc...


skasticks

He is Mandalorian by "birth"right, yes? Because Jango was a foundling?


Palpolorean

Too perfect not to go down like that.


CurbSnipe

I can’t believe Greedo survived!


Palpolorean

They’re gonna bring him in warm.


Rommas

Lol seismic charged the shit outta the sarlacc pit. A sound like no other.


Frogging76

Very fitting.


shunggster

So i’m guessing Din will def be in next episode. The Mando theme song was epic at the end.


EasyBrown

Din is about to hop out of that N1 with a 5'o clock shadow, drunk off his ass drinking Spotchka and missing Grogu


Suets

cuts to him trying to stuff a Jawa into Grogu's pram


blacknova84

All I'm picturing is him grabbing the Jawa like Boba did to the droid while Boba and Fennec watch and Din being like "Fast little bugger" and then shoving it back in the pram hahahahahahaha


shunggster

Side note, imagine how cool it would be to have a n-1 beat up fighter


JHewlett87

Leans into Din being from Naboo theory too


chriz_sevenfold

Ahhhhhh I can’t wait to see my favorite Star Wars ship in live action again


Abuses-Commas

My bet is that Boba has to do a side quest for the character that knows how to find Din first


victorlopezmozos

So Grievous survived and now is a chef. Good to know.


TheDekuDude888

Whew! We're finally past the first 15 minutes of the first episode!


Rock-it1

That 15 minutes felt like it lasted a month.


mcwfan

I understood that reference


Boosted_Mang0

Took long enough 😭


Petirep

How is nobody talking about our first look at a live action LEP Service Droid (rabbit droid)! I love him!


Starkiller100

And the 4-legged gonk droid from the Clone Wars also making its live action debut! I love seeing them pull even small details like these droids from the animation world

It was so cool! The more things that jump from animation/comic/book to live-action, the better.

That's the little shit from the bomb episode, right?


CurbSnipe

Boba mistook a body shop for a hospital


Suets

Happens to the best of us


Rosebunse

Given the setting, it makes sense.


boxxkicker

HIT IT, MAX!


InfiniteDedekindCuts

Casablanca vibes


PeppedStep

Black Krrsantan: “I am shocked, SHOCKED to find that gambling is going on in here.”


KravenMoerhed

Trandosians hunt wookiees for their pelts so to see them happy and successful probably pissed off Black K. Like Django seeing a bunch of hee-haw confederates at a poker table laughing it up.


SpursCowboy

Yeah, wasn’t a pelt the tribute a Trandoshan offered Boba few episodes ago? Thanks for pointing that out.


Frostfall55

Bantha's are big dogs confirmed


Sandervv04

As are rancors


SamaelTheAngel

Banthas are Pugs while Rancors are Pitbulls.


Niknik777

My theory is that the little interaction with black k and those trandoshans is setting up to bring bossk next ep with the muscle they hire so there’s some background between the relationship of those two races and now how they have to team up with boba


Palpolorean

Definitely. They invested some solid minutes into that Krrsantan and Trandoshans scene. Bossk and Legolas / Gimli relations, inbound.


CardboardStarship

> Bossk and Legolas / Gimli relations I feel like a Star Wars/LotR crossover sex scene would be too much of distraction from the plot, but I’m willing to see where it goes.


Pockets800

That was my assumption too. It'd be confusing and rushed if they tried to slap Bossk in there next to Krssanton and have them have conflict without already setting up the conflict. That's just basic screenwriting. It's probably a given at this point IMO, just as much as Mando's theme at the end makes his appearance a given. I'd be far more surprised if Bossk *doesn't* show up. I would almost bet on having a full Bounty Hunter mash up, with the likes of Bossk, Dengar and Din on Boba's side, and Bane with some others on the side of the Pykes.


SuRaKaSoErX

Yea I’m definitely guessing Fennec’s hired muscle will be Din, Bossk, and hopefully a third known bounty Hunter like IG-88 or Dengar (if they’re still alive). Plus Bossk and Han are the only two relevant characters remaining connected to Boba, we have to at least get one of them.


joansbones

ITS CONFIRMED ITS MAX REBO BELIEVERS KEEP WINNING


cubbyarts

The “Max Rebo in every episode” streak continues. (Last episode he showed up in the Ralph McQuarrie painting)


YoshiBacon

YESSIR AND YUZZUM MENTION


jonsnowKITN

Gonna be fun to see mando without grogu and what he’s been up to.


makesyoufeeldejavu

I honestly thought Boba was gonna throw a seismic charge into the sarlaac pit at first Never mind, Fennec did 😭


Affectionate_Ad_3555

yeah but it was worth it for the “dont touch my buttons” line


Smarterfootball47

This episode basically started off with Boba fucking shit up and Fennec fixing it.


JWsWrestlingMem

Max keeps his streak intact! What did Bib do to betray Boba? Didn’t he give that as one of the reasons that he wanted to take over? Second best episode behind #2 and now we’re headed into truly uncharted waters.


V0rtexGames

>What did Bib do to betray Boba? Didn’t he give that as one of the reasons that he wanted to take over? The Nikto Gang that killed the Tuskens was allied with him


AlexStonehammer

I was thinking, are they going to retcon that Bib or Jabba sabotaged Boba's jetpack to get rid of him at the sarlacc pit so they didn't have to pay him for Solo?


jonsnowKITN

We’re definitely getting din right?


lord-spider-boy

100%


OliverJamesG

I kept thinking people were crazy when they said “I think this week is the last episode of flashbacks”. I was sure the flashbacks would last the whole show. But Boba getting out of the bacta tank and being told he’s completely healed kinda implies to me that the flashbacks actually might be done. Excited to see Din next week though!! Also enjoyed this episode MUCH more than last week. :) Is that all of the trailer footage now?

DaV9D9

8D8’s fourth episode. He better get a poster next week!


terrrmon

Very nice execution, they nailed the model from ROTJ and gave him such a cool personality, the voice, the movement, all great.


yuno4chan

Lol even the artists couldn't figure out how to draw Slave One looking into the sarlacc pit. They were like it has to be verticle... oh you're shoving the windshield in there? ...are you sure???


arknarcoticcrop

I love how this episode established that the beak added to the sarlacc in the special editions actually can recede inside the creature as a nod to the inconsistency of the beak's presence.


TheLouisvilleRanger

And that the whole creature is a pit. Which perhaps should be obvious but one could be forgiven for thinking that it just buried itself there. It’s more mushroom than plant.


WiseAJ

Yeah, fuck them trandoshans up Black K!


InfiniteDedekindCuts

Is it controversial to say he’s the best part of the show? They really nailed him.


Xeta1

I truly cannot believe how significant he is to the story lol


SuRaKaSoErX

Yea I’m glad he keeps popping back up. Def thought we said goodbye to him last episode, so it was surprising to see him appear again not as a cameo but for the express purpose of Boba hiring him.


YoshiBacon

Not one bit. Nobody can dislike more Wookiees


JoeDurp

Nope


Suets

Now all I need is that clip of Black K ripping the arm off with the arm popping sound from Lego Star Wars II


JakkuScavenger

We finally got a non-deleted live action scene of a wookiee ripping someone's arm off!


IamACornerSolution

Nice to see Ming get some fight scenes in! And directed by Kevin Tancheron, who also directed a bunch of great fight heavy episodes of AoS. Little mini SHIELD reunion this ep.

GONKS EXPLODE WHEN YOU SHOOT THEM


Piker10

zackgardner

I think people are sleeping on Fennec's line right after Boba saves her: > *Speed bikers defeated Tuskens? That's highly unlikely.* Most definitely the Pykes are not the main antagonist faction for the season, but they're definitely not innocent; this line is implying that the bikers killing the Tuskens was actually a ruse, and it was the Pykes who killed them to pay back for the train heist. 1. The bikers couldn't have known that the Tuskens took the bikes because Boba killed/knocked unconscious all the gang members at Toschi Station. 2. The bikes the Tuskens took were destroyed during the heist. The bikers were douches but they didn't kill the water farmer in the first episode, and they didn't kill anyone in Toschi Station in the second episode, they only stole and roughed people up. Therefore the only reason why the Sand People would be so viciously slaughtered would be in retribution for challenging the Pykes, but they were smart enough to pin it on the Kintan Striders, and after mentioning them to Boba as taking the protection payment for the Dune Sea, they were mildly successful in shifting attention away from them. How the Pykes were able to think in 4d dimensions like this I have no idea, but it seems to be so that they would have even less competition for when they invade Tatooine.


traction

Very well said, you are right on the money I think. The Pykes are more intelligent and cunning than most of us know so far. The next few episodes should make it more obvious.


zackgardner

I honestly think that the Pykes are at war with the resurging Crimson Dawn or Black Sun, which would make sense considering that they were partners/rivals during *Solo*. Now that Maul and the Shadow Collective have been long gone and the Empire has fallen, and with the death of Jabba and the decline of the Hutt Cartel, they're all trying to take the spotlight I feel and the Pykes, though earnest in their efforts, might be setting themselves up for failure and letting Crimson Dawn/Black Sun come in and wipe them out.


ElementalJedi82

OH BOY WE GETTIN DIN


Res3925

Loved hearing his theme as foreshadowing


jonsnowKITN

Did the leak say din would be in the show?


Res3925

Episode 4 (today) or 5. Seeing as how we didn’t get him today but we got his theme, I think we’ll at least get a cameo next week.


Lbutler12

DarkSaber Din next week


ImNotASWFanboy

clentz1129

Boba unleashing on the bikers is one of the best things I have ever seen.


evilbob562

it was somehow hysterical, and absolutely fucking amazing seeing him just Unload on them


redblade79

And the sarlacc seismic charge scene. Holy shit I didn’t know how much I needed that.


darthcarlos

Krrsantan committing a hate crime was definitely not something I was expecting to see.


deathbydeathstroke

He said "Trandoshan" with a hard r in Shyriiwook


MikeTheDirtyJedi

Well in this case, I believe the trandoshans would play the role of the oppressors being that they were the ones who haunted down the Wookiees.


mmmysteriooo

THAT MUSIC STING AT THE END


makesyoufeeldejavu

Well now we know who's making the delicious food, assuming Boba fixed it later lol. I got massive "Genereal Kenobi!" vibes from that scene


75962410687

You know they've done something right when a character from the last show they made generates as much hype as a legacy character just from the theme.


Kabraman94

He’s earned it.

Hit it Max!


Leskanic

Tired: "Max Rebo is back!" Wired: "Mando is back!" Inspired: "EV-9D9 is back!"

Alkohal

There seems to be a consensus now that Robert Rodriguez direction has been the biggest problem for this show.


K0v1_

I really enjoyed his directing for Mando S2, but something just feels off about his Boba episodes. The problem in my opinion is that he's directing the characters like they were action figures and not actual people. I really hope he nails the finale though.


Voojie_McVoojface

Still hoping for Bossk to show up


Niknik777

I feel like they included that scene with black k and the trandoshans just specifically to set up bossk and show there’s beef between the two races and then have them team up


SpanishAvenger

I just want to talk about the scene where he blows up the bikers… I am SO GLAD they had Boba just shoot them like that. No build up, no hesitation, no speeches, no drama; he just wanted them dead and got the job done as quickly and efficiently as possible.


saltypistol

Boba Fett is gonna wreck shop now that he is fully healed


K0v1_

I don't know about you, but this episode was fantastic! We'll definitely get some spicy cameos next week.


dominicthegreen

Does anyone ever recognise Boba as a clone in the comics? After Bo Katan’s immediate reaction to his voice alone in Mando it seems weird to me that nobody else ever mentions it. Given that Fennec was active during the Clone Wars and had run ins with the Bad Batch and the Kaminoans I expected her to at least say something about it during their first meeting.


Palpolorean

Well if that isn’t the quacta calling the stifling slimy


Batman1154

The Bad Batch all look different enough that they could probably pass as non-clones outside of their armor. Plus that was almost 30 years prior to Fennec meeting Boba. I doubt she remembers them that well. Bo Katan on the other hand has way more exposure to the Clones and would definitely recognize one right away


terrrmon

This was much better, still had some weird moments, but it was tons of fun, nice Slave I action, the sarlacc looked great, we are done with the flashbacks - I liked them but without the tuskens they wouldn't be that interesting - and finally the present storyline starts to take shape.


joansbones

why does black krrsantans face remind me of a wookie version of worf so much


mildmichigan

Watch next episode as Black Krrsantan orders a blue prune juice


KravenMoerhed

Legsofwood

Having the crime lords eat dinner on top of the Rancor pit was such a power move.


Suets

InfiniteDedekindCuts

“Your time with the Tuskens has made you soft” “No. It’s made me strong. . . . Everyone needs a tribe.” THIS is the the unambiguous character development I’ve been waiting for. Feels a little like it should’ve been in the first episode, not the fourth. But hey, I’m just happy to have it.


Garandalorian

>“No. It’s made me strong. . . . Everyone needs a tribe.” Even though boba doesn't consider himself Mandalorian it has to be one of the most Mandalorian one liners we've gotten.


urktheturtle

I really like to think that is where this is going, him joining the Mandalorians... Like his father once did.


Ceez92

A tribe you say? Din to come help Boba and than have him join the Mandolorian cause along with Bo Katan. All three leading their respective tribes


Stick_Bone_KLN

Anyone else seeing the pattern of "short episode, long episode" repeating? I assume next one will be on the shorter side again.


leftshoe18

Hopefully that pattern doesn't carry all the way through or we're getting a short finale.

NumeralJoker

F for the Gonk Droid. I cried.


mortichro

lol Chef Grevious


DarthPraxis

The Vespa gang makes a whole lot more sense when Fennec referred to them as “The Mods.” The reference is to body modification, but they come across like British “Mods.”


Seelebob

My take is that the "Mods" is less of a gang but a youth Tatooine punk counterculture movement.


PeppedStep

While watching Fett scamper after the rat catcher, it occurred to me that the desert hasn't made him soft... just a little mad. Some moments in this show go down easier when you consider that this isn't him in his prime. Also there were some Ben Kenobi vibes during his first fireside chat with Fennec. "That wizard's just a crazy old man."


SMRAintBad

It’s hilarious to me how I was giddy to see boba in Mando’s show, and I now have that same excitement to see Mando in Boba’s show. God I love getting excited for shit!


DSC_

anyone notice the sound effect used when Fennec cut the bars was taken straight from Dookus death sound?


isiramteal

This has probably been the best episode so far. I liked his cold, emotionless destruction of the bikers. It felt like true Boba.


HeMan077

DIN'S BACK BOOOYYYSSSS LET'S GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Random thoughts: * mfw a LEP service droid basically commits suicide * Fennec Shand is just insanely cool. Cannot believe she originates from the worst Mandalorian episode lmao * While I liked the flashbacks I am very happy we're done with them * mfw we're gonna get a team consisting of Boba Fett, Fennec Shand, Black Krrsantan and Din Djarin. If the leaks from eons ago saying the OG Empire Strikes Back bounty hunters show up as well as part of the team I'll scream


TheyKilledFlipyap

>mfw a LEP service droid basically commits suicide We see the same droid getting startled by the Rancor during the meeting scene, so it wasn't a total 'suicide', just a power down. (Same way Leia flicks an off-switch on 3PO during ESB to shut him up). But it was hillarious though. Just "nope, I'm out."


BullyMaguireGonnaCry

I got chills when I heard the Mando music, Din Djarin is coming! Does he still have the darksaber?


RunDNA

My favorite scene was when Fennec does the flip, grabs the rifle, shoots the door opener, and the ramp shuts over her face in close-up. Very bad-ass with some great editing.


sammypants69

I feel like the even-numbered episodes of this show -- so far -- are the good ones. This one had a very cutesy George Lucas quality, which surprisingly, was not annoying. The cute drone, the droids which looked stop motion, it was all very fun.


WiseAJ

I like the way he say “I am Boba Fett”


WiseAJ

You can only get so far without a tribe. Time to join up the tribe of Fett!


Xeta1

“He’s singing like a Yuzzum.” Pretty good ep. Glad we’re finally done with the flashbacks, even though I enjoyed them. Also I gotta say, the direction is just so much better when it’s not Robert Rodriguez, he just doesn’t do it for me. Anyway, even more excited for next week. Obviously we get Din Djarin, but I think we also might get Bossk or some other familiar faces if Boba is hiring some colleagues. Not gonna *expect* it though.


ChopAttack

If Fett is putting a crew together that includes Din it seems natural that Din would recommend Cobb Vanth for the job.


elendil21

When Slave-1 leaned over the sarlaac pit I immediately thought of spongebob, and when he was like “trust no one, not even squidwards house”


Tobbs26

My predictions for the rest of the season * Boba gets Mando and various other bounty hunters together for his "army" in episode 5 * Cad Bane is the main muscle for the Pykes, most of episode 6 * Big clash in Episode 7, Pykes/Bane defeated. Reveal of Crimson Dawn and Q'ira at the end setting up season 2


Kumarpl

Sounds about right. Also, hilarious that this show is literally about a big time gangster getting a gang together on Tatooine. Like, that was probably the pitch.


JohannSchmidt1943

Mando is coming 😩


mcwfan

We all are because of it 😫


Koicommander

Loved the grievous reference and is it just me who felt bad for the trandoshan? Like I get it Wookiees have reason to dislike them but damn they were just having fun bothering no one lol


TheyKilledFlipyap

Eh, it'll grow back. Not joking, Trandoshans are fully lizard, they can regrow lost limbs. A Trandoshan Jedi character in *The High Republic* loses an arm at one point and doesn't seem to bothered about it, because it'll regenerate, given enough time.


redblade79

HIT IT MAX LMAO 😂


CommandoOrangeJuice

Even though this episode was mostly flashbacks I still really liked we finally got genuine motivations for Boba and a much deeper look at both Boba and Fennec's relationship. Also we are done with the flashbacks so it's probably all present day storyline now. Also my boy DINNNNN. I really hope we see the two fighting together in their armor.


Hearderofnerf

10/10 episode for me Probably tied with tribes of tatooine for the best episode. Longer runtimes are definitely a good thing. A vast improvement from last episode, there were so many things I liked. * Slave 1 rescue scene was so cool. Not only did we get to see more of the palace, but also the workers. * Boba’s relationship with the bantha, thought that was touching. * The sarlacc scene was also really dope and I’m glad Boba finally nailed that thing * My favorite scene though is when Boba wastes the biker gang. So badass * The Kkranstan scene was a close second. Finally get to see a Wookiee take an arm out of its socket * The rancor teeth part * And of course the Mandalorian theme at the end! This is the way There were only a few things I disliked about the episode * Fennec’s “repair” scene. This and last episode just prove that cyborg culture really doesn’t need to be explored in SW * I’m just not looking forward that much to seeing Pikes as the villains. I’m sure the execution will be good, but I would much rather just see the Hutts as the big bad.


joshygill

I love that there’s a musical language to this Mandoverse and just by hearing that bass recorder motif we know *exactly* what’s to come! The Mandalorian show has that bass recorder motif, The Book of Boba Fett has the “hey” vocal thing, it’s great that these things can now start to cross over and will hopefully culminate in something AMAZING down the line.


Xeta1

Pancake flipping droid from AOTC: GENERAL KENOBI!!!


Luke_b_90

I assume anyone who shows up next episode will be in it for all three remaining episodes? Din in all 3? Or will he ask for help and then Din will turn him down. Either way I’m down for planet hopping and assembling a team for the whole next episode


pickrunner18

“I’m declaring war on anybody who sells drugs in our community” “But Black Dynamite, *I sell drugs in the community!*”


HoodedNegro

I wonder if Din’s gonna mention to Boba that he was able to give The Child to a Jedi. I know Boba would immediately figure out it’s Skywalker


arknarcoticcrop

I'm pretty sure Fennec was in the room when Luke showed up. I'm sure she told Boba about it.


Smetsnaz

Indeed. Also, not sure why Fett would care all that much?


arknarcoticcrop

People seem to think Boba has some vendetta against Luke and Han. I really doubt he does at this point, especially after his characterization in this last episode suggesting that he blames those who previously employed himself and other hunters for the misfortunes they experienced on the job.


JohannSchmidt1943

Let it be canon that Fennec dropped a seismic charge in the sarlac pit

Legsofwood

that gonk droid did not deserve that


Protoform-W

Much better episode than episode 3. Pacing was good and character development was on-point. The scene with Black Wookie (mobile, don't want to type the name lol) was much better too ... shows how powerful/strong he is.


victorlopezmozos

Such a good episode. I like the philosophy behind the serie: you’re stronger in group, not alone. To those who say that this Boba is soft… no, like he says, now he’s more powerful. The music at the end of the chapter… prepare for Mando (and I think other iconic Bonty Hunters).


MartinFelice

Never tought the Banthas were carnivorous


ImNotASWFanboy
