Whew, just finished the episode. Lots to love, a couple of things to eyeroll over.
First, 3 eyerolls:
Mando has always been ridiculously cavalier about leaving the Kid unattended, even knowing that there are bounty hunters and Imperial goons from all over the galaxy out searching for him. This time it went from neglectful to criminally stupid. "Kid, I don't know how long that force field will be up and despite the fact that I know you're always weak as an Navarroian kitten after you've done some Force hocus-pocus, I'm going to go fly off and fight the bad guys." Uh huh, good thinking there, Dad.
And the klunkiest thing in the episode had to be Mando leaving his jetpack in the Razor Crest for No. Damn. Reason. Even a single throwaway line like, "Damn, my jetpack needs to be recharged" could have taken care of that blatant setup, but they couldn't even be bothered to do that.
Lastly, why do Stormtroopers even WEAR armor? It doesn't stop any kind of ray, projectile or force. One shot and they die. What's the point of Stormtrooper armor!!?
Now to the good stuff:
Boba Fett! Now I'm no SW fanatic, not knowing more than the original trilogy plus a couple of the others, but c'mon! Boba Fett! The ONLY good thing about the SW Holiday Special (unless you count Bea Arthur singing the word "Friend" 18,000 times)! Boba Fett, who we've been teased with for decades! Finally! And he did NOT disappoint. What a badass fighter! I loved his weapon (wait, that sounds way too dirty).
The return of the assassin, what-'s-her-name! Cool! And as deadly as ever.
Much as I HATED it, the destruction of the Razor Crest was brilliant. I can't believe how upset I was. It was worse than destroying the Enterprise (because there's always a replacement Enterprise). But it looks like Mando won't be doing any flying anytime soon, since his jetpack was in the ship....
Mando, gunslinger-like, or maybe more like the Dirty Dozen, gathering his posse together to go against the bad guys. But Mayfeld? That was a left-field choice. Can't wait to see his reaction to being sprung by his captor.
I'm expecting some saved-by-the-cavalry action in the last episode when everything's hopeless, involving Bo Katan, maybe Ahsoka, and whatever mysterious Jedi *cough Luke? cough* received Grogu's message. Which means things are only going to get worse next episode....
