“The Triple Dark” starts off innocent enough with Kaz trying to find a balance between being a mechanic and a spy. The story eventually leads into a dark corner of a room somewhere with Phasma standing in the shadows and intimidating music playing in the background. Slowly but surely, we’re learning more about why it’s important for Kaz to be at the Colossus at this point in time and what the First Order is planning.
What I appreciate most about this latest episode is that it introduces a few new details the sequel movies didn’t focus on too much. Granted, some of these details were fleshed out in novels, but I’m more of a visual person. Resistance is doing what the prequels did for the old trilogy, except it’s on a smaller scale. The prequels showed us how the Empire came to be. Resistance is dropping hints about how the First Order operates and how they managed to rise up from the shadows.
I also love how Kaz continues to be an example of a genuinely good person, even to people who don’t deserve his kindness. His lucky trophy meant everything to him, but when Grevel needed his help, he used it as a doorstop. Certain possessions may hold sentimental value, but they’re not more important than someone else’s life (even if that someone is a sleemo). Like Ezra and Ahsoka before him, he’s a good role model and leads by example.
You can read my full recap/review over at Culturess.
- I love how Dee Bradley Baker voices Grevel. I never would have guessed it was him.
- I can’t wait to see more of Synara San, especially in relation to Kaz and his mission.
- When Yeager says, “It’s not the average person you need to be worried about,” I got a sketchy vibe from him. That, and when he dismisses Kaz entirely when Kaz tries to tell him about the First Order at the end of the episode. I wonder if Yeager is hiding something.
