    I misread the stuff in the last post. I thought it was saying that the man walking up was the guy from the comics or whatever.

    "GMA: Boba Fett, will he be in The Mandalorian?

    Favreau: Boba Fett is not (audio interrupted)…. they are all new original characters. I am at a timeframe that is 30 years stretch of story time that hasn’t been explored at all, except in the Extended Universe."

    People really need to pay more attention to the articles here.

    This. I get that releasing one episode at a time is part of the problem, but it's meant to be seen as one season--not individual episodes.

    DUDE, Boba Fett wears spurs. That's the hint. You can hear Boba Fett's spurs in the ESB when he is walking when no one is talking. Especially the dining room scene in Cloud City when Boba Fett appears behind Vader. The mysterious character walking upon Ming Na's body is wearing spurs.

    TIME STAMP: AT 9 MINUTES

    I don't know, I'm willing to take Jon at his word for now. I don't think it's Boba Fett. But, if I'm Jon, I'm not going to say "Yeah, of course Boba Fett is in the show." I'm going to say "Nope. These are all new characters." Time will tell. I can't wait to find out personally.

    But he has no reason to 'disappoint' fans either. He could've been cheeky with the answer of something like "will see *wink, wink*". They probably vent those questions in advance as well.

    With social media, and the internet and all, I just know what I'd do. Like I said, I take him at his word as he doesn't have a history of misleading statements. But I wouldn't blame him for doing it either. Hell if I were him and I did put Boba Fett in the show, there is no way I'd want that cat to get out of the bag.

    Anyway, I still think it was simply The Mandalorian coming back for her, but I have a feeling I'm going to be proven wrong on this.

    I just think it was a new character. I think it's that duel wielding pistol guy.

    Could be a welcomed surprise shrouded in mystery...
    --- Double Post Merged, Dec 7, 2019, Original Post Date: Dec 7, 2019 ---
    Week to week, ensures subscribers won't hightail it out like they commonly do with Netflix. When the Witcher finally gets a release date on Netflix I'll re-subscribe then after binging it for 2 days unsubscribe. Disney+ wants to be like HBO but is pissing off impatient Star Wars fans, or The Mandalorian's 30 minute length isn't enough to satiate fans on a week to week basis like Game of thrones did. For me, it's helping me get closer and closer to TROS... thanks LFL.

    DCUniverse.com streaming service also has a new Harley Quinn series for adults that's released on a weekly basis.



    It's hilarious!!!

    I'm right there with you on enjoying revisiting worlds that we know so well only to see how they have changed. It was important to see how much is different on Tatooine than when we last saw it. I think that opens a lot of potentials for us to learn why the cantina has changed to a droid-run establishment rather than a droid-free bar. Why is it so much quieter there? Why is it no longer a Guild planet? Is all of that because Jabba is gone? What happened after he died? That is what interests me now and that is why I agree with you that it is fun to revisit old places if there is something new for us to learn by visiting them.

    For example, in the canon comics, we see Naboo multiple times, as Vader visiting his wife's tomb, as Leia visiting the homeworld of her mother and then sensing Maul's presence in the main hanger, and then Operation Cinder nearly wiping out the planet to hide Sidious's past. That is valuable story information and a good reason for us to revisit it and it makes our experience as fans richer thanks to it.

    Re: One shot
    or they could have Boba say he had to fight someone to get his armour back and that part is explained

    Yes he wears spurs ... perhaps like many others ... yes they sound like spurs, like all the spurs out there. Spurs sound like spurs, there is no further clue in that. Up to that point I don't really see why he has to be Boba Fett. My impression from the scene is that the person who appeared is a man. At least what was shown was too massive to be a woman, and walking slow ... like some sort of cowboy.

    For the assassin Fennec Shand, she got a shot in the belly/chest. I have serious doubt that she survived. We know Mando, would he leave her behind in the desert if she was alive, and we know he has this IR view so he knows if she is still "in hot". For the very last scene, I think they just wanted to show that there is somebody else there who is interested in the matters, somebody else who is checking what happened and who maybe care of what has happened or what will happen. This one have not been shown so far ... so new character, but is that important? we have to see.

    I had a dejavue when Fennec was shot, felt the same way when IG-11 was shot or in Han Solo movie when Beckett was shot and Vos was slayed. They kill interesting characters too fast. There is no time to enjoy them. There is no time to develop a story.

    Fennec was shot just after sunrise and the mystery character walks up to her in the dark. That’s a long time to not have moved. I think she’s gone.

    Killing off interesting characters portrayed by interesting people is something that’s probably going to continue. It would be boring if the only ones who ever died were indistinguishable nobodies. Mando is most likely going to meet lots of unique people. Some will live longer than others. We’ve already got several new characters still with us, for now at least.

    Still the feeling to play a RPG except I have no idea of the big story behind.

    And we are at ep 5. It's not enough for me. It lacks depth.

    When they showed Mando walking up to her that would've been enough to say she was dead.

    Please help to identify this ship. Some sort of starfighter with yellow paint on nose and top of the hull, blasters on the wingtips, seems to have 2 double engines.I am sorry for the moment these are the best shots I can get ...

    Seems impossible.
    Cool thing in SW is to see ships properly. Are part of the story even with great personalities.
    Not a good camera work in this sequence in my opinion. Too fast.

    Ok, so it's a new character... fine, yet Favreau is filming season 2. The ultimate showdown, and the ultimate season finale would be to bring back such an iconic character.

    I drank the Kool aid, because I also watch DC's Titans (live action) which was streamed on the DC Universe streaming service every Friday (weekly) as well, and Emergency Awesome stated Wonder Girl would die at the end of the season, and by god she did, :eek: so now he's saying Mando's season finale will showcase a Clint Eastwood, (Blondie - the Good) a professional GUNSLINGER showdown with Lee van Cleef ( Angel Eyes - the bad) a hitman on a hunt for $200,000 worth of gold (babyoda).

    Hey, if Boba Fett doesn't show up, I won't be butt hurt about it. The odds that Emergency Awesome being right is well over 90%, DUDE :D

    So although I enjoyed the episode, in the context of the season it left me disappointed. Give me a 15+ episode season and this episode is fine. 8 episode season having a filler episode like this disappoints. I feel that no character development was done in this episode. Now we may have a new character or 2 from the very end of the episode, but to have a full episode to hint at a new character or 2 seems such a waste. We have 1.5 characters in this show that are being developed. I say .5 because as much as I love Baby Yoda he it is hard to develop a toddler. Maybe if episodes longer this would hit so flat, but right now this episode puts a sour taste in my mouth on the whole season.

    I also am so tired of Tatooine and desert planets in general. So so sick of them. At least with no twist on the planet, but their is no twist with Tatooine. Tatooine is done and this so makes me not really excited about Obi-Wan series.

    Finally where are all the people. This is the most sparsely populated galaxy in the universe it seems. We have been to 4 planets and seems 90% of the people are Bounty Hunters.

    While unlikely, I've got my fingers crossed that that was Dengar at the end.
