season 2 continued Friday, as episode 6 hit the streaming service. On the heels of Baby Yoda’s unveiling last week , former Jedi sent Mando (Pedro Pascal) to the planet Tython. There, little Grogu can reach through the Force, potentially reaching a master who can train him.
Episode 6 is kind of chillingly titled The Tragedy – we all went “Uh oh,” right? – and directed by Robert Rodriguez (Desperado, From Dusk Till Dawn and) and written by series creator Jon Favreau.
Let’s climb the mountain of SPOILERS.
Boba Fett reborn
After the Razor Crest lands on Tython and Grogu starts reaching out with the Force, a second ship arrives – Slave I. You may recognize this as Boba Fett’s (Temuera Morrison) awesome ship. We already knewand that he knew that Mando had acquired his armor on Tatooine. Turns out he decided to do this in the most dramatic moment possible.
Boba just wants that armor back and has recruited hit man Fennec Shand (Ming-Na Wen) to help him get it.we saw her, she was shot in the stomach and left to die in the sands of Tatooine, but we learn that Boba was the mysterious figure who walked up to her in the aftermath of that incident. He fixed her belly with some cybernetic parts, and now they’re super mercenaries.
Boba and Fennec’s negotiations for armor are interrupted by the arrival of Imperial troop carriers, forcing them to kick ass of all kinds. Boba initially destroys the Stormtroopers in this Tusken Raider outfit (turns out the gaffi stick is quite effective), but decides to pre-empt further negotiations and seizes his armor from the Razor Crest.
Good thing, too, because an imperial cruiser destroys Mando’s ship with an orbital attack shortly afterwards. Hi Razor Crest, you were actually the Millennium Falcon on this show and we will miss you.
Reunited with his armor, Boba becomes the Boba Fett we’ve always dreamed of. He easily destroys the Stormtroopers and uses one missile to take down both escaping troop carriers.
Unfortunately Imperial Moff sends his Gideon (Giancarlo Esposito)to get to the vulnerable Grogu before Mando and his new buddies can reach the little man.
