Episode 5 starts out with a dogfight in space. An unnamed bounty hunter is bearing down on Mando. The Mando is able to pull a stop-short maneuver and get the drop on the guy. In doing so he takes some damage to the Razorcrest.
Mando limps his ship to the nearest spaceport. We nearly jumped out of our seat when he got clearance to land by … Mos Eisley tower!
He needs money to repair his ship so he looks for bounties in the local cantina. Yes, it is the same cantina that Luke and Obi-Wan met up with Han and Chewie. He finds a rookie bounty hunter that needs help bringing in a big bounty.
Turns out the bounty is an elite assassin level target by the name Fennec Shand (portrayed by Ming-Na Wen). Mando agrees only when he is offered the full bounty as long as the rookie gets the credit.
They end up capturing Fennec, but she gets inside the rookies head while Mando is out capturing a dewback for transportation. She lets the rookie know Mando is worth far more to the bounty hunters guild than her.
The rookie shoots Fennec and goes back to Mos Eisley to hold Little Yodes hostage. Things don’t work out the way he planned, and Mando quickly dispatches him. He pays for his ship repairs and leaves Mos Eisley.
The scene that has everyone talking is a mysterious figure discovers Fennec Shands body in the Dune Sea desert. All we see are the boots and a cape. The theorists are saying it is Boba Fett. Personally I don’t buy into that. There are only 3 episodes left and we haven’t seen Moff Gideon (Giancarlo Esposito) yet. My money is it is him that was employing Fennec Shand and now he is upset his best protection has been taken out. What are your theories on this new figure?
