Last week’s episode, The Passenger, left me feeling a little flat. I enjoyed it enough, but in a series that’s been promising to use existing characters from the wider lore, a self-contained, monster of the week, style episode such as that left me a little frustrated. Although I could rest assured by the end as this third episode of the second series proved to be many times more satisfying to me as a Star Wars nerd.
This is going to be something of a mini-review. I’m only going to talk about the one episode to break up how the future storylines pan out. So let’s get into it and talk about the Season 4 episode: A Friend in Need.
I might have to stop writing which episodes I’m planning on covering in upcoming entries for this series going forward. Because it’s really a shot in the dark as to whether there’s going to be enough going on within them to warrant splitting them up into multiple parts or not. Like here for example; we’ve got a three-part storyline that, while dealing with heavy subject matter, is ultimately a pretty open and shut kind of story. And something I can just talk about all in one go.
I guess it all ends up being about how they handle these stories rather than their subject matter themselves.
