We reach the final few episodes of season 2, aside from a few stragglers and I feel I’m making progress through this series at a surprisingly good clip. Jumping right from a trio of episodes detailing the revamped Mandalorians, we take a little side hop to focus another of Mandalorian heritage. Although at this point in the canon, who even knows if Jango Fett even was a Mandalorian or not. And Boba’s status is even more ambiguous. Doesn’t seem like there’s any eventually becoming Mandalore like he did in the old canon.
The following collection of episodes are some I’ve had on my mind almost since I started this series. Containing one of the more controversial changes of the Clone War’s new canon to the series, scrubbing away one of the most fleshed out and complex cultures in the franchise after the Jedi themselves: The Mandalorians.
I dabbled with the idea of talking about five episodes in a single upload this week, but I’m adamant that I’m going to stop writing 3000 word posts. Because that’s all I used to do and it destroyed me. Especially when this isn’t my full time job. So this part is going to be a little bit of a warm-up, leading into next week when we get into the meat of the battle of the bug planet.
