Legitimately think the only part I liked about this episode was the villain's entrance, from how they glided down to just how the scene was set up. Felt very intimidating and like an "oh sh*t" moment.

Other than that, was again just a bunch of meh.

I've enjoyed this overall. It. has some problems but it's certainly better than Boba Fett, which is the nadir of modern Star Wars for me. Also way better than Bad Batch.

It was kind of dumb how the stone fortress caught on fire so fast, and the witches were all dead of no obvious causes.

The "come at me with all your powers" or whatever her line is, was a cheesy line/pose. The one dude's beard and hair was just embarrassing.

There are various minor nitpicks people have mentioned above that I agree with that aren't worth harping on.

BUT, I like that it's looking at the Dathomir witches more, and building on the idea that there are other force traditions outside the Jedi and Sith.

I like Sol a lot and hopefully there are more flashbacks with Carrie Ann Moss, who was awesome in the beginning fight.

I kind of like that it shows how predatory the Jedi are, in taking kids and stepping into cultural minefields. But honestly I think their argument should have stopped with "we're not part of the Republic."

I think the use of representation is good, and doesn't hurt anything. It's not like, for instance, the story is bad BECAUSE of the use of representation. Those are unrelated variables. (And I don't think the story is bad. It's ok.)

I am looking forward to seeing where it goes. It has caught my imagination enough, even if it's not perfect. But what is?

Unless something was revealed in this latest episode (4), those weren't Dathomir witches but just a random coven of witches.

And Star Wars already had other Force traditions outside of the Jedi and Sith.

You know it dawns on me these with the comics. Can we move on from this already? How many times are we going to retread old ground with this Kyber stuff and Vader's 'power'? This is what, the...3rd time now for the Kyber stuff and I dunno what...the 5th time for Vader's 'power'? It's getting a bit repetitive and not really all that interesting. What next are we gonna have the 4th Vader vs Palpatine issue?

The entire run is reaching its climax and Vader facing Palps one last time has been building up for over 10 issues, I don't know what you expected lol

How many times is he going to face Palpatine when we know he doesn't beat him?

He doesn't have to "beat" him, it can still be an epic battle. I also don't get the obsession with mentioning the "vast" amount of times they've faced each other as if it hasn't happened just twice in near 50 issues.

An "epic battle" with a set outcome already loses most of its epic-ness.

And nobody mentioned the "vast" amounts of times they've faced each other. Wolf only mentioned three times.

As for the thread, I'm not sure what's this supposed to mean.
