    So the alien gangster in the opening bit

    was John leguizamo, would’ve never guessed that, figured it was Favreau again

    If you haven’t read any of the books I can see this episode being pretty meh.

    Which isn’t a good thing for a TV show.

    Really fun episode. The first half especially was very spaghetti western, right down to the music.

    Seeing a Krait Dragon fully realized was a ton of fun.
    Loved the fake Boba reveal, looking like a dork in ill-fitted armor.

    Glad Star Wars is back. It's been too long.

    8/10 nothing earth shattering, but solid. I liked it better than all the middle-season "adventure of the week" stories from S1

    I hope youre right because I'll hate it if Boba survived the sarlacc. I hated it in the EU and hate it now. I can get behind the armor withstanding the disgestive system of a sarlac or whatever, but Boba somehow surviving is just dumb

    I mean it's a strong conclusion with who we know Rosario Dawson is portraying and who Sasha Banks is rumored to be portraying.

    I wouldn't put a bait and switch past these guys, since that was basically the whole point of this episode ("it's gonna be Boba, it's gotta be Boba, it's Bob--oh no it's just some guy"), but I think they dropped enough hints that we're supposed to walk away from e1 knowing that was Boba Fett in the end. They mentioned the krayt dragon ate the sarlaac. The armor is his. He was watching the whole thing. I think it's a reasonable conclusion to draw and I'm not going to read any more from it than what is reasonable.

    But again, baits and switches are a thing in this show, so we'll see.

    I thought the episode was great.

    Also,

    With the introduction of Ahsoka and possibly Sabine this season, I wouldn’t be surprised at all if it’s Rex and not Boba Fett. I’m not saying they won’t do it for fan service, but it’s going to be difficult to explain how Fett lost his armor and still managed to survive.

    Isn’t Rex officially retconned as the random old guy on Han’s Endor strike team? I’m thinking that’s Boba, who ages normally

    Except he doesn't have an Australian accent so he can't be Rex.

    Liked how the armor had an extra jingly sound like spurs when Mandalorian walked around. Subtle but reinforced the space western themes.

    There's a lot of ways he could've survived that would've been better than the EU explanation.

    Is it spoilers till Monday? Just to be safe.

    Those were Fyrnocks in the opening scene right? When they said there was a Mandalorian on Tatooine I gave such a huge eyeroll. When it was Olyphant (who I really liked) and an episode about hunting a Krayt I was so happy. If the ending was Boba I will eyeroll once more, if it ends up being Captain Commander Rex I’ll probably cry.

    a veteran clone who fought alongside Anakin and Ashoka and escaped during the order 66 purge along with the latter

    it was retconned that he was an older rebellion fighter during ROTJ and I don’t think there’s been a post ROTJ canon update on him since

    I have no numbers to back it up but I’d imagine Disney + is doing gangbusters with the kid crowd (just this morning with my daughter and brother in laws 2 kids + paid for itself with a few minutes of peace) and with the adult crowd they still have the Marvel and Obi Wan shows lined up then whatever other Star Wars they decide to do in series form.

    I feel like Mando probably has 1-2 more seasons. 3 total seasons feels right.

    Overall it was a great episode

    the Kryat dragon calls, harken back to Kenobi scaring off the Sand People, that was totally R5-D4 from ANH, assumed it was Boba Fett at the end but the Rex theory makes my dick move a little. A Rex/Asoka reunion omfg
