Well that was a nice comeback for the show after the middling chapter 3. This was much more engaging and the direction and cinematography were a lot more competent. Unfortunately it seems Robert Rodriguez directed three episodes so there’s one left among the upcoming three.
Chapter 4 is my second favorite, after 2. First of all I loved Fennec Shand getting both more character development and action scenes this time around.
I was surprised the flashbacks caught up so soon with the timeline of The Mandalorian.
I liked the little references to the Clone Wars series (the ratcatcher droid and the four-legged Gonk droid).
The mods and their retro aesthetic felt less jarring this time. Maybe cause their scene was set at nighttime.
The little Rancor moment at the Godfather-like meeting was great!
I’m thrilled by the possible return of Din Djarin, and it would be such a wasted opportunity if they didn’t bring Bossk into the mix. They could even set a sort of arc for Black Krrsantan, as they established a little backstory for him and his hatred for Trandoshans. I hope as well any surviving members of the Tusken tribe come back for the finale.
