Seemed like a pretty big jump forward in time from his last flashback to this one. We know Mandalorian takes place 5 years after ROTJ. So, the previous flashbacks are all well before that, so far. Figure the Tuskens found Fett a few days after the battle of the Sarlacc. I mean the Jawas wouldn't have taken years to find and sift through the wreckage. His entrance into Mos Eisley is the first time we probably get a glimpse as to how long he was among the Sand People. We see the civilians just now putting the Stormtrooper helmets on pikes (that we originally saw in Mandalorian). So, that suggests the time frame is fairly recent to the destruction of the second Death Star and the Empire has only recently fallen. Since they show us in Mandalorian the events in Mos Pelgo take place around the same time as the destruction of the Death Star II, we can assume Cobb Vanth is just now getting Boba Fett's armor from the Jawa's that they scavenged or he may already have it at the point Boba Fett rides into Mos Eisley to speak with the Pykes. So, since the events in Mando season 1 are five years later, I guess we're made to believe Boba's been living the nomadic life in the desert for quite a while before he finds Fennec. This is kind of reinforced when Boba and Fennec are hovering over the Sarlacc and he says "that's where I was trapped all those years ago." I did like the segue tying the flashback into the end scene from the Mandalorian episode with Fennec Shand. The Mod kids again, though.....just ugh....
Enjoyed seeing one of those recon probes in action. They mention those in the Republic Commando novels a few times, so I'm guessing someone's been catching up on the Karen Traviss books. Enjoyed watching the Slave 1 coming up behind the swoop bike gang and tearing into them. Revenge served up, courtesy of Boba Fett. The Sarlacc scene was a surprise, but neat nonetheless. I never get tired of those seismic charges. I also enjoyed watching the dynamic develop between Boba and Fennec.
Picking up Krrsantan as even more hired muscle was an obvious and welcome choice. I'm sure everyone got goose bumps at the end, when Fennec mentioned knowing where to find more hired muscle and you hear the familiar musical grif from The Mandalorian theme. I was wondering if they'd show Din Djarin in the Boba Fett series, so we may get our wish with that. Even better, would be a whole bunch of hired Mandalorian muscle. Maybe the survivors of Djarin's old Mando Covert? It would be cool to see them show up again. Perhaps Bo-Katan's group of Mando's? I would think she'd be too involved trying to retake Mandalore, though. Now, showing some "hired muscle" in the form of some old familiar ESB bounty hunters would just be freaking mind blowing. A cameo of Embo or some "other" bounty hunters from The Clone Wars would be cool, too. Crossing my fingers on that one.
Everyone's been curious what the significance of the new black killstripe on his helmet was for. After this episode, I'm wondering if it wasn't for the Sarlacc?
