I’m getting some serious The Fly II vibes about whatever monstrosities they’re hiding in the vault. That should be a cool reveal. You have to figure they never do get it right in light of how jacked up zombie Palpatine ends up being. Guessing Hemlock will not survive the series.

That’s definitely Tech!

I like how they've lost control of some of the experiments they're doing, so much so that they've had to abandon whole planets.

Are we just not going to talk about how Scorch is just walking around with Hemlock?

Finally got a chance to get through the first three episodes last night.  Pretty good so far.  Definitely looking forward to seeing how they close this out and what kind of ending they have in store for the crew.

Scorch first popped up early in the show and Filoni played it a bit coy, but I think it was last March'23 that they finally confirmed that trooper was indeed the same Scorch.  I think he's been in 4-5 episodes now.

There's something very reminiscent of Resident Evil with the creeper vines.  And Scorch's repeated appearance makes me think that the showrunners are big gaming fans.

Episode this week was a little bit of a snoozer, but I get that they've got to create some character development and rebuild the relationship between Crosshairs and Hunter.  It would have been nice to have a more interesting story to support that theme.

Obviously this was a character building episode to highlight the friction between Crosshair and Hunter.  Ready to see what's next!

There had always been friction between Hunter and Crosshair.  It seems like now it's all out in the open.  And perhaps the two of them can move forward with a better sense of mutual understanding.

It was definitely an exercise in tension.  And it also seemed to be doing some setup work for a future episode.
