Star Wars: Andor

Brilliant stuff! Like @MardiganX said, the gathering of the plotters was just beautiful. Although it did make me laugh when Luthen pulled his hood up to hoon off on his hyper bike. Goggles probably more useful!

 

My favourite bit:

 

Spoiler

When Vel said to Cinta ‘You’ve got blood on you’, and instead of saying ‘it’s not mine’ which my cliché-addled lizardbrain was automatically expecting, she just said ‘it’s nothing’, like the cold hearted rebel assassin she is.


:wub:

Yeah, that was brilliant. 

Spoiler

I also think they showed admirable restraint in the finale to ensure that all the opposing parties (the Rebel and Imperial assassins, Dedra Meero, Syral Karn, Luthen and Andor) didn't bounce off each other in series of unlikely events.  

 

The ending was only ever going to be that ending...sign posted from day one... but cinematically so elegant in its portrayal.  It's funny how the death part of the Death Star was the last part to be put in place, the Emperor didn't make that mistake a second time.

My favourite scene may not be what you're expecting:

 

Spoiler

Syril and Dedra's budding sub/dom fascist love story is one of the funniest, most disturbing, and incredible things, and I was watching that scene where they are cramped together in that store room with a mixture of revulsion and glee.

Oh, yeah I'm totally for their sick twisted relationship. Even evil space nazis can find love.

One of the reasons it's so good though is it reveals so much about the inner nature of their fanaticism and makes them so much more terrifying as characters because they can still live lives with similar desires as anyone else. Like the rest of the show it lays bare the structures of dominance and control.

I think the show peaked with the prison break and the last couple of episodes have been in its shadow, but when that Imperial shuttle landed and Dedra came out with those death troopers I was as hard as Syril.

 

They looked truly terrifying as well. 

Spoiler

And storm troopers were equally brutal once it all kicked off.

Absolutely superb ending to what has been a fantastic show.

 

Gutted there will be no more for a year or more now.

 

The look of: 

Spoiler

Revulsion combined with growing attraction on Dedra’s face merits a 10 for the episode on it’s own.  


Once again brilliant casting and acting.

Not going to lie; teared up a bit a couple of times.

 

And also inappropriately laughed when:

Cassian’s dead mum got used as a blunt instrument.

 

I loved every single bit of it, but that was both hilarious and hugely appropriate

They stuck the landing. lots of people have  mentioned  the various nuances in the final episode  so I won't bother  apart from one thing

Spoiler

O'Reilly's disgust as   Mon Mothma  when they meet  the son is palpable, she doesn't have a lot to do in this episode but it's masterfully done.
