    Ooooweee! That was ****ing amazing.
    I've always wanted a Krayt dragon scene for decades but just never said it. It was just one of those things unsaid. And here it was.

    Cobb Vanth and Boba Fett were great. Timmy looked skinny for that helmet but it was fine.

    That felt like a 2 hour movie. Deadwood in my Star Wars.

    FINALLY Boba Fett is confirmed to have survived! I love the references to legends with the dragons having a pearl in their stomach and the book reference with Cobb Vanth.Im guessing this confirmed that Boba Fett was the mysterious figure in the last Tatooine episode?

    Basically a waaaay better version of Chapter 4. With...

    Not-Boba Fett, Boba Fett's armor, a Krayt Dragon, and...Boba Fett

    I'm happy.

    Just to be uber-careful, I'd flag that as a MAJOR spoiler

    ETA: Unless doing that is a spoiler, given expectations...

    That was just about the coolest **** ever!

    I wasn’t expecting to get so excited over them mentioning Mos Pelgo but I definitely was. It’s just so cool how the biggest show in the world references a book that the majority of the audience wouldn’t have even heard of. It’s really awesome how committed they are to making everything count.

    Cobb Vanth was great to see and Timothy Olyphant played the role brilliantly. I really hope this isn’t the last we see of him. I really liked Mos Pelgo too. It felt like an old western town on the edge of nowhere.

    Krayt Dragon! Holy hell that was not was I was expecting but damn was it cool! My only nitpick would be that we didn’t get to see it fully emerge from the sand. There’s always the Kenobi show for that though I guess. :p

    The Tusken Raiders were the stars of this episode. Just like Chapter 2 gave us a nice look at the Jawas this episode really highlighted the Tuskens nicely. A nice glimpse into their culture. Wonderful.

    Boba Fett at the end! He didn’t look too happy that someone has his armor. I can’t wait to see where this goes! :boba:

    This has made me even more excited for the Kenobi show. Tatooine is a truly wonderful setting.

    Another thing... I loved those creepy monsters at the beginning of the episode with their red eyes. Pretty brutal of Mando to just leave the guy to be devoured. [face_laugh]

    It’s their way of telling us that he’s still a bad*** despite having The Child in tow. Also, that was John Leguizamo. Would not be surprised if there are more guest cameos on the show this season.

    Few more easter eggs. In addition to the Krayt pearl, Tusken dogs and what looks like it could be a repainted Anakin's podracer engine as part of Vanth's speeder, there's Sam Witwer rolling some barrels when Mando enters Mos Pelgo...

    In 1977, seven year-old me would be out of his mind if he knew there was going to be a Star Wars TV show that had those people in it.

    And then the ending...

    (And we're getting an Obi-Wan series. Life is good.)

    For some reason, one of my favorite parts of the episode. Din Djarin is...Batman.

    And I loved that short little Abyssin gangster with the ill-fitting sportcoat. Perfect minor characterization there.
