Episode 2.14 The Mutiny
Directed by Bosco Ng
Written by Mairghread Scott
Were actually getting all the way down to the ultimate few episodes now and as anticipated, the present is beginning to tidy up just a few issues. Theres LOTS of characters on this present, for good and unhealthy, and determining the place they find yourself is a to-do record that simply must occur, nice or not.
As I discussed final week, the Sidon Ithano reference in The Rise of Skywalker Visible Dictionary predicted what would occur on this episode. They usually dont waste any time because the episode begins off with Kragan and his pirates assembly up with Sidon at an unknown location for a bit enterprise transaction.
After a little bit of failed small speak with the prickly Sidon, they unload the merchandise which is an entire bunch of B2 Tremendous Battle Droids! They’re in fact previous and beat up, however Kragan says theyre excellent for what he has in thoughts, which is to take over the Colossus! They pay the Crimson Corsair and thats that.
A fast pause if you’ll. Within the TROS visible dictionary, on web page 183, within the Sidon Ithano profile, it says He has just lately made a considerable sale of a cache of classic tremendous battle droids to Kragan Gorr So, in the event you learn that previous to seeing this episode, which occurs to be known as The Mutiny, nicely, one plus one. Its a really minor however cool connection to the bigger image, particularly, how this present tracks in opposition to the occasions in Episode IX.
Since this all occurs in opening two minutes of the episode, its not what Kragan is as much as thats vital, however whether or not hell have the ability to pull it off or not. Again on the station, Synara San and Captain Doza are discussing the pirates; with Synara considering its finest if Doza permits them to depart. For his half, he thinks its clever to maintain them on the station, the place he can keep watch over them.
Doza heeds her warning nevertheless and heads to the hangar in any case with a safety contingent in tow. He searches all of the crates for unlawful contraband however missed discovering the B2s as a result of Kragan sneakily hid them simply exterior of the hangar previous to Dozas arrival.
Earlier than Dozas arrival, Synara was there looking for out what Kragan was as much as, however hes clearly conserving her out of the loop and sends her on a idiots errand. Earlier than Synara leaves, she tells him no matter is happening; she desires no a part of it. The cracks are exhibiting.
Again in Dozas workplace, he and Yeager are speaking to Neeku a couple of particular task they’ve for him. For the reason that pirates dont suspect Neeku of something distrustful, and together with his affinity in direction of their lifestyle, Neeku is tasked with keeping track of them, up shut.
Kaz reveals up, desirous to know what Neekus particular task is all about, however Yeager tells him to not fear about it and go work on the Fireball as a substitute. This solely raises his suspicion since Neeku is the higher mechanic. So, Kaz follows Neeku which leads them each to the hangar, the place the pirates are nonetheless hanging out, unpacking their battle droids.
The pirates begin off by giving Neeku a tough time for being there however Kragan steps in. He leans on Neekus romantic notion of pirates, asking him to assist restore the B2s who’re in tough form. It appears Sidon bought Kragan a bunch of lemons and he wants Neeku to make them operational. He tells Neeku the battle droids are a present to Doza and the Colossus, to assist battle the First Order and preserve safety. Underneath that premise, Neeku agrees to assist.
They start opening all of the containers revealing increasingly B2s, after which a B1 battle droid pops out! It appears one of many previous B1 Battle Droids bought blended in with the B2s, a stowaway of kinds. Sure, our good previous pal Roger is again, kind of, and Neeku warms to him instantly, taking him on as his assistant.
So, Neeku will get the B2s operational in fast order and whereas hes engaged on B1, Kragan busts in and throws Neeku in a loading crate, he doesnt need him spoiling the mutiny. Neeku was nonetheless modifying the B1 on the time, for one thing particular, however Kragan wasnt having any of it.
In the meantime, Kaz and Synara are in Aunt Zs taking part in holo-darts, theyre discussing how everyone seems to be performing unusually and so they determine to analyze. They arrive to overhear Kragans plans and discover Neeku trapped within the loading crate. Earlier than they will inform Doza all the pieces, a B2 seems behind them and locks them within the crate together with Neeku.
Kragan and the pirates, together with the Tremendous Battle Droids, launch their assault on the station, making their approach by means of the passageways, destroying safety droids. We see them in Aunt Zs, in Engineering with the Chelidae, they even make their approach to the Aces Lounge the place the Aces are hanging out.
Nonetheless within the crate, Neeku tells Kaz and Synara to not fear. Simply then, the door is opened by the B1 who has been programmed by Neeku to assist. This was a part of Neekus plan from earlier, when he was engaged on the B1; suspecting Kragan was as much as no good from the beginning.
Kragan and his gang make it to the tower after which into Dozas workplace the place they destroy the rest of the safety droids, and severely injury 4D. With the mutiny almost full, issues arent trying good for Doza and the remainder of the station.
Synara, Kaz, Neeku, and the B1 are making their approach to the tower and run into some pirates. They’re held up by Drell and Valik however handle to take them out because of Neeku and a wrench. They proceed to the tower however with the lifts out, they must climb. They arrive to search out the place empty as a result of, because it seems, Kragan took Yeager and Doza hostage, bringing them to the hangar. He intends for them to take the lengthy stroll into house or, stroll the plank if you’ll. He’s a pirate in spite of everything.
On the final second, Synara and the remainder interrupt their little ceremony and Kragan accuses them of attempting to mutiny his mutiny He orders the B2s to encompass them however good ole Neeku has yet another trick up his sleeve. Seems, one of many modifications he made earlier to B1 was to make him the commander of the tremendous battle droids, and so they should obey his each phrase. He orders all of them to face down and imprison all of the pirates. Being outmatched and outnumbered, Kragan and remaining Warbirds don’t have any selection however to give up.
Doza orders them to the brig, whereas he thinks over their punishment. Synara tells him that conserving Kragan and the Warbirds as prisoners will solely burn up beneficial assets, and that letting them depart is a greater choice. She suggests making a take care of Kragan, his freedom in change for a assure that the pirates can by no means return. Doza agrees and the pirates are stripped of all their weapons and the Galleons hyperdrive is disabled.
Earlier than leaving, Kragan chides Synara for betraying him, in spite of everything, he saved her when she was baby and raised her like his daughter. Shes not falling for his histrionics and tells him her debt is paid, insinuating hes free to go due to her.
Afterwards, Doza acknowledges how arduous that will need to have been and Synara is lastly a part of the Colossus household. Yeager tells Neeku hes top-of-the-line spies hes each seen proper in entrance of Kaz, who in fact, will get offended. Neeku tells him he realized all the pieces he is aware of about spying from him, particularly performing clumsy, naïve, inept, and unsure.
Nice episode from begin to end, and it was actually nice seeing the present nonetheless prepared to provide us a unique look this late within the sport. Have to provide some kudos to author Mairghread Scott (Stay Hearth) for doing simply that, nice job.
Having the Crimson Corsair himself, Sidon Ithano making a pre-TROS look was actually cool contemplating we all know whats coming. And having battle droids present up was actually nice and is one thing the present has accomplished nicely from the outset, hook up with the previous.
The largest concern resolved right here concerned Synara and whether or not or not she would finally select the Colossus household over her adoptive Warbird one. Im glad to say that Synara San is lastly and formally a part of the Colossus household.
Having the pirates on board was problematic from the beginning, however it was a tool to get Synara on board the station for good. The writing was on the wall from her very first look, approach again in Season One, that the pirates life wasnt for her anymore.
So, the pirates are out of the image, however for the way lengthy? With only some episodes left and lots of extra bins to verify, having them return would solely appear problematic at this level. I do must say, Ill miss them a bit bit.
And, due to Neekus intelligent considering, the station does now certainly have a B2 safety staff, simply as Kragan supplied! Clearly thats not what he had in thoughts when he bought them from Sidon Ithano however hey, thats the best way it goes some occasions.
Talking of, how nice was it to listen to Matthew Woodens voice once more, behind a B1 Battle Droid? He’ll endlessly be R0-GR aka Roger to me however seeing a B1 on this type of animation was an actual deal with. Hopefully we get extra of him earlier than the sequence is over.
Its happens to me that maybe the rationale I favored this episode a lot was that Kaz had little or no to do with its development or final result. Hear, by his very nature, can put on on you and weve had a LOT of Kaz this season. Its honest, hes the lead, however it was good to have a bit break from what will probably be a really Kaz-centric ending Im certain.
Subsequent week weve bought The New World
Doza takes the Colossus to a hidden world on the outer rim, solely to search out its inhabited by beings who dont like them.
I really feel like theyre exhibiting us potential planets for our buddies to name residence in spite of everything that is over with episodes like this. I imply, its fairly daring to introduce new characters this late so Im inclined to suppose that a few of the solid will probably be left behind, for their very own well-being.
Like I mentioned, theyre coming into clean-up mode and should present some stage of closure as to the place these characters find yourself. Theres just too many to simply depart us hanging.
And theres nonetheless the Tam concern to take care of, on prime of all the pieces else, which additionally consists of the possible demise of Pyre and Tierny. Well discover out quickly sufficient I suppose!
Until subsequent week…MTFBWY.
