The Lost Missions aka Season Six of the Clone Wars is out on Netflix today so it’s only fitting that I wrap up planned version of the Hondo Caravan today. And yes, I watched the entirety of Season Five in one week. But let’s be honest: this is not the craziest thing I’ve done for the blog.
Shades of Reason (DC)
On the surface, Maul’s plan to cause pockets of chaos throughout Mandalore and then have Deathwatch come in and arrest the criminals seems like a good one but I have to agree with Bo Katan: you can’t trust Maul. Actually, in a situation like this, no one should be trusting anyone. And honestly, doesn’t this plan run the risk of the criminal class squealing about how they’re all working together once they figure out they’ve been deemed the sacrificial lambs?
On a completely different note, Satine’s new outfit is pretty fabulous looking. It says serious and regal all at the same time.
I wouldn’t say that the Mandalorians were ever necessarily known for being the brightest crayons in the box but they (as a planet) seem to be kind of stupid right now. Did they really fall for Maul’s plan this easily? And we wonder why no one saw through Palpatine’s façade…
And now Vizsla is Prime Minister. That is a title that a) never sat well with me for a Mandalorian and b) sounds even more wrong on the shoulders of a member of Death Watch. First of all, he’s not even close to being subtle enough to be a leader. Immediately betraying Maul was probably not in his best interest.
I love the look on Bo Katan’s face as she tosses Maul his lightsaber. That’s the look of a woman who knows it’s going to be Prizsla’s funeral. And then the ladies can rule once they kill each other. Oh look. It is his funeral or rather his beheading. Actually, I’m seriously surprised that they showed this on a kids’ show.
Okay, I’m just going to come out and say it. Forget this Fett tradition, forget Satine, forget the black market Prime Minister, forget Maul. Bo Katan for Mandalore. Accept no substitute.
