Taskmaster: Who’s Beneath The Mask?

In less than a week’s time, we’ll be getting an exclusive look at Black Widow and that means it’s time to get to theorizing about the film. And the main question I’m having about this movie is who is Taskmaster? Who’s behind the mask? Here are my theories and the reason behind these theories.

‘The Last Shot’ Is Just Like ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’: Enjoyable but Boring

I’ve read over a fourth of The Last Shot, a companion to Solo: A Star Wars Story. It features a story of Han Solo and Lando Calrissian that jumps back and forth between their years before the events of Solo and their years after Return of the Jedi.

I tried to really get into this novel, and maybe I’ll try to finish over it the next few days, but like Solo: A Star Wars Story, I couldn’t sink my teeth into this novel as much I wanted to. Daniel José Older tries to bring Lando and Han to life in a realistic way but I couldn’t connect. Lando feels too much like Lando, if that makes any sense. And Han’s constant grumpiness and lack of cockiness in this story makes him less likable than normal.

What I did like, however, were the father/son and even uncle/nephew moments with two-year-old Ben Solo. Years before he would turn evil and kill the very man who brought him to existence, years before the dark side would begin to corrupt him and he would start becoming a troubled child, he was a sweet, innocent, dark-eyed baby who was just as cute as could be.

It’s so sad. 😭

Anyway, like I said before, I’ll try to complete this story but as of now, it’s good, but it hasn’t gripped me in the way that the novelization for Rogue One did. Just like I find myself unable to watch Solo anymore even though it’s good, The Last Shot won’t be making it to the top of my must-read list.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have an amazing day. May the Force be with you.

 

Episode X: The Reckoning: Chapter Forty-One

Ora hadn’t felt this stabilized since before that ship appeared on her homeworld and she would meet her father for the first time. In short, she hadn’t found peace since the day she realized her destiny was upon her. Now, with her father standing alongside her not as a mentor, but as truly just that, a father, she felt a sense of closure that she had never had the opportunity of enjoying. She only wished her mother could be here as well.

Together, they ran through the forest, following the invisible trail created by the Force to wherever the mystical power was trying to take them before eventually discovering a single obelisk that stood out like a sore thumb in the middle of the woods.
