    I'd like to see a 2 episode siege of Jabba's Palace.

    But with a Rancor and Slave I at his disposal, I can't imagine a siege would be all that effective. So it probably would take place elsewhere.... or at least on multiple fronts.

    If we're talking some kind of war, I expect it will take place in Mos Espa. The show has made a point of showing us the city landscape inside a crater throughout the first half of the season. That might turn out to be significant. Perhaps we'll see an red-garbed army (Red Dawn?) surrounding the top of the crater with Fett's forces inside the city.

    So interesting to think about the fact that we just have three episodes left.

    I've been a pretty big fan of the pacing of this season, given it gives everything a chance to breathe. But man, I really wonder what the final showdown will look like.

    I'm almost wondering if instead of a huge final battle, we'll have something that feels a little more restrained. Small shootout in Mos Espa, perhaps, ending with a big gunslinger moment.

    I could definitely be wrong, and I could see both ways paying off well, but it does feel like even with all the tablesetting we've gotten so far, a big battle in just one or two episodes (since I'd imagine the final episode or two would hit the ground running) would feel out of place.

    I agree with you that the show could go a couple of different ways from here. But I expect we'll have a much better picture of the finale the show is building towards after Bryce Dallas Howard's Episode 5.

    This is not a prediction, not even a speculation, but...

    ...it just occured to me that IF they (LFL & al.) wants to do scenes of Luke & Grogu training and philosophizing, without doing a separate Grogu training show (which we won't get, of course), they COULD add a minute-long post-credit scene to TBoBF s1, and future seasons of TM and other Mandoverse shows, sort of like a Luke & Grogu cameo running in the background of (after) the other shows, untill Grogu is ready to do whatever he's gonna do later on. Thoughts?

    Yeah, I think this could be a great opportunity to do some tablesetting for Mando without having to awkwardly run through exposition at the beginning of season three. I was thinking we could get some insight into the conflict between Djarin and Katan, but this could also be an interesting direction to go.

    Maybe we'll see something with Thrawn or Ahsoka, too?

    I'll happily take anything we can get. But I'll settle for seeing Mando again and his cool new ship.

    I don't trust the Armourer. Chalk her up as another potential betrayer of Boba (via Mando). The possibility of tension between Din and Vizla was set up in S1 of Mando but I think that's a red herring. I think she's putting him up to it. As we saw in Chapter 15 of Mando, Boba has no time for pious "that's not the way" prigs. I'd love to see him spar with the Armourer.

    I think @cawatrooper is on to something with the mysterious Tatooine sea that keeps being brought up, along with a bazillion images and references to water. If some kind of subterranean sea pops up somehow, I'm sure there will be Tuskens connected with it. Just have no idea how.

    In chapter 5, the Armorer just out of nowhere namedrops the mythosaur, based on a spray-painted logo on the wall or something. Like, wow, mythosaurs are only a legend, it would be a shame if you FOUND ONE in the living waters of the completely obliterated mines beneath Mandalore. And then your pal Boba the animal lover can give it pats and snuggles and you will have a ride worthy of the Mand'alor. (Because a ship commissioned by ROYALTY of Naboo is just a stepping stone, brother.)

    I have a feeling that TBOBF will seem anti-climactic. The Pykes will be sent packing for now and stability will be restored to the Tatooine crime scene. But it will be far from conclusive.

    Right? The armorer mentioning Mando's new quest to basically be baptized in the waters underneath Mandalore set my sirens off, lol

    Oh, the symbolism...

    Yep I can totally go for this. I does seem like many components revolve around her.

    Can you reload the image? I'm not seeing it?

    I predict that Mando will fight Boba with the Darksaber on the line.

    Some random quick thoughts:

    -A little battle in Mos-Espa.
    -Boba abandoning Jabba's Palace and finding a new way (interesting a curious description of Jabba's Palace on Wookiepeedia, maybe something to use in the future: "Several years after Jabba's demise, Luke Skywalker and Han Solo returned to the empty palace to locate vital records pertaining to a newly developed Hutt superweapon called the Darksaber". (not the Darksaber we know...!)
    -Mando visiting Grogu and Luke to set the tone of Mando S3 (Mythosaur, Jedi stuff, Concordian Mines, Mandalorian clans...).
    -Boba riding the Rancor.
    -An appearance of an important character or group setting a new show. Would love to see a post credit scene like Mando, announcing a new show we don't know yet. Qi'ra, Solo, Crimson Dawn, First Order,... something to fullfill a little more the gap between ROTJ and TFA, something to connect the worldbuilding.

    lol didn't know about that legend. Clearly they can't use that name for a weaphon now.
    Although I have found interesting Jabba's Palace being abandoned during this period.

    I also get a feeling that this might end with Boba leaving Fennec to run Tatooine. He might decide that getting revenge on the Pykes and the Hutts (and whoever else) is really what was bugging him. And that it is Shand who really united the little groups who take on the establishment. Boba might find that finding his true "tribe" lies elsewhere.
