Star Wars Resistance S2 E1: “Into the Unknown” Instant Reaction

I used to do instant gif reactions over on Tumblr. But with the website being so buggy for me and as more people shift away from Tumblr, I think I’m going to try out bringing my instant reactions here. Why not do what I normally do and add content to my website?

The way this works is I type out my instant feelings when watching an episode of a show. Then I add a funny gif or picture to it. Simple enough, right?

There will always be spoilers for the episode.

Side note: This is the first time doing an instant reaction on my website. I can see that the formatting is a bit wonky. As I do more of these, I’ll work on tweaking these posts so there’s not as many gaps between posts.

LET’S GO!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Welcome back to Star Wars Resistance season two!

image

 

When we got the amazing trailer over the summer

image

 

….to find out it was the final season for Resistance

image

 

But we also found out that Orka and Flix are the first on screen gay couple in Star Wars!

image

 

IT’S ONLY GOOD REPRESENTATION IF IT’S ON SCREEN. DON’T “DUMBLEDORE IS GAY BUT WE WILL NEVER SHOW IT ON SCREEN” THESE GUYS, STAR WARS!

image

 

Let’s get started!

image

 

HEEEEEY PHASMA!

image

 

This has to be like 20 minutes before Last Jedi or something for Phasma to still be there

image

 

MY EVIL GIRLFRIEND TIERNY!

image

 

TAAAAAAAM! BABY GURL TAM NO! YOU IN THE FIRST ORDER CAUSE THAT MEAN OLD KAZ AND YEAGER LIED TO YOU FOR THE PREVIOUS 22 EPISODES! THEY SORRY, PLEASE COME BACK!

image

 

Oh my god I’ve missed Neeku so much

image

 

So the QuikTrip is damaged and not fully operational, so they got to get it fixed before they can continue

image

 

I hope this season Kaz and Leia get a moment to talk. Both of them lost their planets. She would understand his feelings more than anyone else

image

 

Kaz seems to have a manic feeling about him in the beginning. He’s really trying to help out and get stuff done. It’s like he’s wanting to work so not to think about his loss. Like he’s really trying to find some way to help. As everyone is doing things, he be like:

image

 

I really like the tiny little glimpse of Captain Doza’s backstory. I hope we get to find out about Torra’s mom. I just want to know all the things about Captain Doza!

image

 

TORRA!!!

image

 

They’re all excited because they got close to the Resistance base not knowing it’s being evacuated because of the events of TFA and Last Jedi

image

 

Now Kaz is all sad because Tam’s not there

image

 

Shouldn’t have lied to her for 22 episodes, KAZUDA

image

 

I know it’s the premise of the show that Kaz was a spy and Yeager was helping him. They kept information away from Tam to protect her. But they need to acknowledge at some point that they hurt Tam and were part of the reason she went to the First Order

image

 

Kaz: I’m sure everyone is miserable without the gravity on

Everyone else:

 

ORKA AND FLIX MY FAVORITE GAY COUPLE IN STAR WARS WHO IS NOW CONFIRMED AS CANONICALLY A COUPLE

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

EVERYONE SHUT UP! WE’RE BACK WITH TAM AGAIN!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Tam: They’re not my friends anymore

Me:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I actually like that Kaz is being a bit snippy with everyone. His planet just got destroyed. He’s probably super emotional right now. He doesn’t know if his parents are alive. And (to me) it seems like he’s trying to cover his emotions with work. It’s very subtle. Kaz could come off like an asshole, but everyone knows he’s grieving. Bravo, writers!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Also, Torra is clearly annoyed and stress, but she was there when Kaz lost his planet. She seems to understand him. I think it’s really big of her, a freaking super mature 15 year old, to let him have this. I’m constantly so proud of Torra Doza

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

CB-23 is missing because of that asshole First Order droid from last season!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The droid got Neeku!

 

 

 

 

OH NO THAT ASSHOLE DROID IS CONTACTING THE FIRST ORDER

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

KICK THAT DROID’S ASS AGAIN, CB-23!!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

They opened the airlock and blew the evil droid out into space. They almost lost Kaz in the process! But they’re fine! They all almost died, but they’re all okay! The evil droid is gone!

 

 

 

 

 

Kaz wants to send a message to Tam to try and explain himself

 

 

 

 

SEEING TAM IN FIRST ORDER CLOTHES HURTS MY FEELINGS!

 

 

 

 

 

TAM NOOOO! LISTEN TO KAZ’S MESSAGE! HE’S SORRY, HONEY! COME HOME TO THE COLOSSUS! THEY ALL LOVE YOU! THESE FIRST ORDER FUCKS DON’T CARE ABOUT YOU! COME HOME!

 

 

 

 

SHE PUT ON THE HELMET AND EVERYTHING HURTS NOW!

 

 

 

 

 

 

So happy that Resistance is back! I can’t wait to see more, especially Tam’s story!

I do wish they premiered episode one and two together. Episode one was a lot of set up. Not much happened overall. I would have liked to see the first two episodes together just to go ahead and kick start the plot a bit more. But Resistance has always been a character driven show. It’s always moved slower than Clone Wars and Rebels. So I don’t mind too much.

See you next week!
