I think thats where they're going with the show, but I do wonder if his need to be in the bacta tank will continue. For now it looks like he needs it to get back to 100 but I hope it's not a "he needs the Bacta Tank to stay alive." cause that would suck.

I'm sure we'll see other syndicates but If I remember correctly by the time of this series most of them had been wiped out or power wasn't a quarter of what it was during the Clone Wars, with the exception of the Pikes.

Jennifer Beals Twilek is def in on it, my guess is the Mayor and a like are testing the new leadership of Fett. But it makes me curious, how in the hell did Bib Fortuna keep things going after Jabba's death if they came at Bobba this way.

I think the tone is the way it is because we're seeing characters that live on the Outer Rim on of the SW Universe, so it's more of a wild west kinda vibe with things. I don't think we'll get a conflicted anti-hero vibe, Fett seems to know who he is and what he wants. He's just trying to do it his way and not like the previous people whom we obviously know how ruling by fear turned out for them.

I could be wrong but either way...
