    The tracker has to either be embedded in baby yoda (which I feel like someone would have removed by now) or its somehow sync’d to his DNA/some other biological marker.

    It was my least favorite as well. Not bad but just nothing earth shattering. Didn't seem to move the plot forward that much.

    Solid episode

    Amy Sedaris showing up was cool, and poor man’s Jonas brother rookie is Bobby Cannavale’s kid who was annoying but I guess that was kind of the point

    Using Maverick’s move in the opening scene was awesome.

    The rest of the episode was pretty rough imo. Dialogue and score were super cheesy.

    The 2 plot holes that keep bothering me
    - He has the most sought after bounty in the sector and he seems to have no issue w people knowing about baby yoda.

    - HOW THE HELL DO THE TRACKING FOBS work?!?!?

    I don’t really agree with this. He didn’t intend to land on Mos Eisely, the space battle brought him there. Secondly, he tried to keep him in the ship, but he got out. I don’t think it’s plausible you can keep that type of a character from interacting with others during the course of a show. And frankly, at least for me, it works well enough.

    Them going back to Tatooine makes me wonder if Boba might show up.

    Seems unlikely that he would randomly drop out of hyperspace near Tatooine if he didn’t intend to land there. I do wish we had a better sense of his plan.

    So it was all ok if he didn’t land specifically at Mos Eisely? (Or another famous starport in the traditional Star Wars universe?)

    Edit: I just think this is nitpicking on the plot. Obviously fine if people think otherwise.

    People think it's Boba Fett because the sound the spurs made when he walked matched Fett from ESB.

    It's probably whoever Gus Fring is playing.

    Is there ever a reason/explanation for why Yoda could flip around summersaulting like a banshee at the age of 880 but could barely move once he hit 900?

    not to be anal, but obviously a lot more existed. This is just the third* we've seen in canon.

    *unless he's a clone of Yoda, in which case we've only see two, Yoda and Yaddle...do they all have "Y" names, George or were you just cute and lazy like with Order 66? So many questions

    Latest episode was rough for me. A lot of nonsensical decisionmaking and the “adventure of the week” format is starting to grate a little bit as I realize how close to the end we are

    While I still really like it, the show is frustrating. The first three episodes were a lot of fun but work better when binge-watched. Spacing them out revealed how thin they were, plot wise.

    The next two episodes have been more plot-heavy and episodic, but at the expense of not really adding to the overall arc of the season.

    My biggest problem with the past two episodes is they are 2/8ths of the season and are mostly inconsequential. They feel like Clone Wars episodes. Clone Wars had 22 episode seasons. You could afford to have a one-off "heroes go on planet-X and solve a twenty-minute problem" episodes when they're just 1/22 of the whole lot.

    When you only have eight chances to tell your story, there needs to be more of a premium feel.

    Especially given they are only 30 minute episodes so it's essentially 4 episodes compared to other big shows out there.

    seems like Disney was maybe cautious given the streaming service being brand new and recent Star Wars productions have given them pause. Would expect season two to be much grander
