Chapter 14: Breaking Down The Mandalorian
There is not much I can say about Chapter 14 — heck, I can’t even give you the chapter title — without spoiling it.
Too, too much. Too, too quick. And, too good.
So, this is your first and only warning. Turn back if you don’t want to be spoiled.
Still here? Good.
Before we get going, let’s take a look at the BRAND NEW POSTER:

The Mandalorian: The Tragedy
I mean, there’s no getting around that title, right? But I am not going to get into it here in text. No, not yet.
However, a few friends of mine have some pretty amazing reactions and breakdowns of their first notions.
And it didn’t take long for anyone to decide what this episode was worth.

I just watched the gnarliest Star Wars comic book on my television… I am shook.”

How Did We Get Here?
If, like me, you felt a need to go Fett-hunting after the new episode, I found a really great article from back in the day.
Star Wars journalist Bryan Young posted:
An exact clone of the mercenary Jango Fett, Boba Fett led a hard life before becoming one of Jabba the Hutt’s favorite bounty hunters. Although Fett was hotheaded in his youth, he became one of the most feared ne’er-do-wells in the galaxy by Han Solo, blinded by carbonation sickness, felled him. His legend lives on, though, and this playlist will take you through all of the major moments in his life.
Young also listed a “playlist” of Boba’s best (and most important) filmed or animated moments:
