If you haven’t noticed by now, I came away from The Rise of Skywalker disappointed. Because of this, I skipped last week’s episode of Star Wars: Resistance. For the last year, I have followed the story in the hopes that it would contain a secret clue to something that might happen in The Rise of Skywalker. Or, maybe a character from Resistance would make a cameo appearance in the Skywalker Saga finale, which would’ve been exciting. When that didn’t happen my obligation to continue watching Star Wars: Resistance faded away but, after my week-long hiatus, I’ve decided to return to the series to see what happened next and for the most part, the past two episodes have been pretty enjoyable.
Featuring a brand new ally of the Resistance named Norath, a pretty cool-looking bounty hunter named Ax Tagrin, and more action with the First Order, both episodes The Missing Agent and Breakout were somewhat enjoyable and a bit direr than what we’ve seen previously, which was a relief.
Star Wars: Resistance is the most childish of the series, meaning there is no real peril. However, the suspense was there and the implications that maybe the series is starting to get a little more series were very apparent.
Where will this story head next? I’m not quite sure but I’m hoping that the series retains this quality over the next few weeks.
I’ll give these two episodes combined a total of 4 out of 5 stars and 89 out of 100. Not perfect but not an atrocious score either.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a remarkable day. May the Force be with you.
