    Carl Weathers' smug laughter during the chase is just great.

    We don't know much about him, but I never saw him as some sort of super commando. He was shooting OK in season 1, we just saw him shooting some storm troopers. He was the guild master, now is some sort of governor of this remote planet, common this is the natural continuation of his "career". I don't see him wrong in any way. Things get settled a bit, the guys are more relaxed, life just goes on, this is the outer rim dude, people there are not too much ambitious you know.

    They read our comments and adjust the episodes according to our wishes and expectations ;) Yeah the have just 4 episodes now to close this great season, we still have to see Ahsoka and the big battle between Gideon and Jarin. It will be non stop fun until the end I believe.

    It's too abstract, in my opinion you can see a lot of things in those graffiti.

    I was sure I have seen something similar, but didn't know where, and I just searched the clone wars art and found something interesting. To me they look somehow similar, what do you think.

    Krenik and Vader were the first to deploy Gideon's new toys in Rogue One and later the Vader Comic. Amirite?

    I think these are the next step up in terms of genetic enhancement as Gideon already had access to Death Troopers l

    It is true that Greef Karga has evolved; last season he was the boss of the local Bounty Hunters' Guild, wereas this season he's the Magistrate of the place, which is a very different role that I imagine would change most people. Personally, I find his evolution a great development of his character.

    Well to be fair, Gideon did refer to Greef as a "disgraced magistrate" in S1, so we know he's got a history doing that job, and now that they've erased the Imperial presence on Nevarro he can do his thing without Imperial interference.

    yep! Some fans noticed that the descriptive audio version confirms this. Dark Troopers are canon. Be still me '90s EU heart.

    Who ever had the idea to bring on the blue macarons... These looked too cool! The brown cookies from the concept didn't look that good and stylish.

    Tremendous episode and tremendous thread! Great theories by all.....here is another that we haven’t been thinking about (at least I have..). Could “Babyoda” [I hate that name btw] have something to do with the “awakening” of the Force in Rey and the ST?

    "Take the foundling to the city of Calodan on the forest planet of Corvus" - Bo-Katan.....

    Where is "Corvus"? This is non-canonical (at least until now)....are they talking "Corvus Minor" from Legends?

    So what happens in Ep 13? [is it just me or am I superstitious about this?]

    My take --

    Din gets to Corvus, finds Ahsoka, near the end of the episode Moff and his crew arrive, there is some sort of titanic struggle, maybe Ahsoka saves Din by fighting Moff/Dark Saber ..... Ahsoka eventually gets the Dark Saber from Moff but he escapes, with Babyoda....

    ......or.......

    ....is the "Corvus" thing some sort of massive set-up by Bo-Katan?????

    I'm wondering if all of the Snoke/Palpatine speculation re: the Child's blood might be missing a simpler and more likely explanation.

    Might Gideon's intention be to elevate his own "M count" in hopes of developing Force sensitivity? He already has the Darksaber - why not go for the whole schmear and then declare himself the new Emperor?

    The Emperor does not need to be sith or jedi, he needs to control the galaxy. Palpatine won the throne by playing all sides to fight each other and at the end was seen by most as the only solution, i.e. raising a strong leader who will restore the order. Gideon has no chance now, when the new republic restored the democracy and is taking care to eliminate all of the imperial remnant.

    I noticed Cara has a new belt buckle, at least I think it's new. Seems the match the the bottom of the badge or "thing" she receives at the end.

    @Stu Rocket Yes, sharp eyes! I need to research that symbol. The metal badges she gets is New Republic, however, As an ex US Air Force guy , the bottom portion looks like a military ribbon to me....

    Here is Cara from Ep 4
