    It really is the wait that gets me. When it dropped in the middle of the night I didn't worry about it as I watched right when I got up. But the time just drags waiting for 8:00 pm

    Well, it drops at 3am for me, and I still wait up for it. :)

    It's up.

    Far, Far Away!!!

    Wow this is absolutely beautiful.... travelling in galactic hyperspace and exiting galactic hyperspace were given amazing visuals. And now we know why the Road To Peridea cannot be the Road From Peridea.

    Filoni.... I love you man

    PS. Did Ahsoka just condemn these whales to their death?

    I love this episode so far, but Thrawn looks like a Kenner action figure

    A 9/10 a great episode.

    It’s good to have Ezra back.

    and oh how I missed my blue boy.

    I do feel incredibly bad for Ezra. Sabine just undid getting rid of Thrawn.

    The episode where they travel to...Middle Earth? I've long thought Thrawn was the most overrated Star Wars character but I'll give him points for making a good entrance here. Great music by Kiner too. They keep slowly revealing more about Baylan and that's the thread I hope they fully tug on. He's been the most interesting character to me. The whole journey with Sabine and the trolls from Frozen was a real bore though. 6/10

    4/10

    I feel like I’m watching Halo on Paramount+

    Two episodes left, very little excitement so far. With a lot of fat that could have been trimmed.

    A long standing issue of mine is the show’s failure to establish Thrawn as any kind of threat worth the concern that the heroes direct towards him. Now I’ve seen him, and stand by that same opinion. A lame payoff for the dragged out reveal IMO

    Reunion time!
    Sabine will be so thankful when Ahsoka arrives, because I can't see Ezra be completely happy, her working with Thrawn and company.
    The music was amazing.
    They nailed Thrawn.

    I loved this episode but I really need someone to point me back to the episode of Rebels where Sabine suffered her brain injury. This isn't loneliness or missing someone. This is idiocy.

    Pros: Everything else.

    And her whole "I'll tell you later" nonsense...how she got there is something that should have been told immediately.

    I love those little turtle creatures. It feels straight out of LOTR but with a definite Star Wars twist. I love when Star Wars gets a little weird.

    I think its just guilt and love that did it. I dont think you need another explanation other than human nature.

    I didn't get the impression that Ahsoka convinced them to jump. Just that she convinced them to let her go with them. To, it seems, their deaths.

    Anyway, Filoni continues to be a magnificent bastard. This episode was gorgeous. Of course this planet in a galaxy far, far away from the other galaxy far, far away is even more of a fantasy world than the other one. It just...works. A fairy tale come to life and all that. Loved the statues and the castle, the design of the witches, the loth-wolf-rat, the red samurai nomads, the hermit crab people, and Thrawn's second-in-command with the gold face. Ezra looked great. Thrawn was chilling because he looks like Elon Musk (blue checkmark, anyone?). The Chimaera appearing above the castle! Gareth Edwards would be proud of that sense of scale. And something bigger calling to Baylan? Something ancient? A very intriguing episode.

    The only weak spot, IMO, was Sabine's dialogue and delivery in parts. Has she had a brain injury? "Where is Ezra!?! Where is Ezra?!?" Dude, they've never been to this galaxy before, never mind this planet. They don't know. And why would the mount you were just given be immediately loyal to you? And come on. You must know that you're endangering Ezra and his new friends by failing to tell them how you got there...

    But those are true nitpicks. I loved it. Almost as much as last week's. 9.5/10.

    Throw in the loss of her family in the destruction of Manalore.

    I don't think that just because they jump there that they automatically die there. There has to be 2 way travel.

    I'm a human. Who has loved lost people. This is someone who didn't need to find Ezra, she needed to travel to the Emerald City and ask Oz for a brain.

    That was just purely fun and imaginative Star Wars, and probably sets the stage for years of world building more than anything since the prequel trilogy released. Loved it.

    Ezra is way cooler as Space Hermit Crab Jesus than he ever was.

    If this is even only 1/10 of the sort of stuff in store in a "history of the Jedi" film, we are in for something phenomenal.
