3. The Rising Phoenix
Was I the only one who didn’t see this coming? Maybe I was too preoccupied watching Baby Yoda coo to notice that most of the Mandalorians in Episode 7 had jetpacks and that it was conceivable that our very own Mandalorian would get to that point as well.
Granted, he took to flying really quick, but I don’t even care if that’s implausible. I care about how it all panned out. He used all of his devices to perfection. Bruce Wayne would be proud. And he took down an entire TIE Fighter all by himself.
You don’t get much more Mandalorian than that. And that was only a taste.
It was all too appropriate that the season ended with him lifting off and flying away via that same jetpack. It’s a perfect segue into Season 2, which will show us much more of that style of fighting that we never really got to see much of because Boba Fett and Jango Fett (AKA, the posers) died too soon.
All of it, coming in Season 2. Thank you very much.
No. 2 is next.
