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.
When I started the first of these three episodes, I had the bad feeling that this batch might be a bad one. As it turns out though, the trio was just a slow starter. The episodes just getting better as they went along. And the more I watch this series, the more I realise that the series’s original characters are far more compelling to me than the already established ones. Which kind of makes sense if you think about it, but hey, let’s actually get into the episodes before I really go off on one.
