Anyone else notice, now between Yularren and his peer in Killian, a certain resentment towards the Jedi that's not really being explained? Killian showed it when he insisted on going down with the ship. Yularren's shown it since day 1 in the CW movie.
I find that interesting... People seem to dislike the Jedi for possibly their own reasons. Jealousy perhaps? A certain level of envy of the Jedi being given rank, rather than earning it the traditional military ways?
I think you nailed it with the last part there. Yularen is a career military man, very rigid and by-the-books. Now suddenly he has to take orders from a bunch of mystical yahoos with little to no formal military background. They're unconventional, possessing strange, weird powers, and no doubt ruffle his brittle, patrician feathers. Small wonder he ended up an Empire man...no weird aliens or freaky powers to worry about.
I liked last week's episode more than I thought. I'm glad they are portraying Boba as a somewhat ambiguous, clearly manipulated character, rather than a 9 year old super villain bad-ass. I love Bossk and Aurra Sing as his evil foster parents. Shoot, I love pretty much everything about Aurra. She is way more interesting at this point in terms of backstory, etc.
A lot of the stuff on the Jedi cruiser was just ridiculous though. I'm sure the engine room would be so easily accessed. Lackluster doesn't even begin to describe the security system there. And how come Mace couldn't sense the impending danger from his quarters, or the weird vibes Boba was giving off when they met in the hallway? Was his spider sense on vacation?
At any rate, it's been a strong season overall, and I am really going to miss this show for the next few months. Good, good stuff.
