Of the 5 episodes we’ve seen, “The High Tower” is my favorite. It has the perfect combination of humor, intrigue, and action. It’s also great to see Tam and Neeku in a more casual setting. I like how Aunt Z’s is the place for them to hang out. Moments like those allow the characters to open up to each other about things unrelated to work, and we see that take place with Tam. Like “Fuel for the Fire,” I enjoy getting morsels of information that keep you guessing.
It’s also fascinating to see more First Order activity and how they’re operating at this time. We all know how the sequel movies generalized on a few things, especially when it came to the political state of the galaxy. This closer look is exactly what I wanted to see going into the series when it first started.
While I love the entire episode, my favorite part features Kaz trying to escape the First Order while the people at Aunt Z’s tavern watched and made bets. The sequence is both suspenseful and hilarious. I like how even though this is a win for Kaz because he got the information he wanted, he still fumbles in his usual way.
You can read my full recap/review over at Culturess.
- I wonder what Major Vonreg looks like and whether we’ll see him without the helmet at some point.
- I also wonder if we’ll see Tam fly and become the sky racer she wants to be.
- Happy to see Kaz’s tip-toeing action back in this episode.
