  1. A great arc of episodes for character building. Boba Fett, Mace Windu, Aurra-Sing, and Hondo Onaka all are fleshed out in such engaging ways.

    Johnamarie, I really agree with you re: Boba not forgiving Mace… Mace was very un-Jedi in his beheading of Jango Fett. Mace needs to take responsibility for that act and doesn’t… to me this is another example of how the Jedi of the Republic were consumed by the Dark Side of the Force: being arrogant and abusing their power while being very confident in the ‘rightness’ of their actions.

    Still, Boba also needs to realize that his father wasn’t exactly a saint. I think of the similarities in the Season 3 arc where Ahsoka is captured by the Trandoshans and then blamed for the death of the lead Trandoshan’s son. At the end of that arc Ahsoka brings the truth: the son died because of the father’s actions and guidance. It is true Ahsoka was the one fighting the son when he died but the question is why was the son fighting at all and who lead him into that situation? Or rather, who else bears responsibility for the son’s death?

    Boba can’t begin to heal until he sees that his father was a person of extreme violence and that Jango lived by the sword (or y’know, blaster) and thus died by the sword. That being said, Mace definitely has a responsibility as well and should own it.

    Looking forward to your comments on Rebels Season 3!!!
