Star Wars Resistance S2 E3: “Hunt on Celsor 3” Instant Reaction

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.

Welcome back to Resistance!

This week, Kaz and Torra are teaming up with the pirates. What could go wrong?

The citizens of the Colossus are mad at Captain Doza because they’re running out of food. Didn’t I say two weeks ago they needed to start rationing their food?

Aunt Z wants to leave the Colossus

NEEKU IS LEAVING TOO!?

And the pirates are like

Aunt Z is packing up!

She’s telling them that the ice manta ray from last week can be eaten. Gross

The pirates are volunteering to go get the manta ray

Kragan says something a bad about Captain Doza

Torra:

Yeager and Doza debating whether or not people should leave. They can’t protect everyone at the moment but people could die if the First Order catches them

Torra and Kaz volunteer for the “Kill the Ice Manta for Food” mission

OH NO NEEKU IS ACTUALLY LEAVING!

Synara is NOT down for this manta hunting idea AT ALL

Can I just say that Synara is beautiful?

WHAT A NICE SHOT OF THE PIRATE SHIP COMING OUT OF THE CLOUDS!

The pirates are HYPED to maybe die!

Oooohhhh there’s the manta ray

Synara has been with the good guys too long because she’s now the voice of reason on the pirates

Kragan’s not listening to Kaz either. He’s just doing his own thing

Oh no! The pirate ship is too slow to get away! SYNARA IS ON THAT SHIP

Kaz and Torra saved Synara!!

Synara is BITCHING out Kragan and I love it

The pirates’ failure means people are leaving that night

Tam was making a canon so now they have a half working canon. Kaz with a canon will go… well??

Buggles snuck onto Kaz’s ship

Why not tell Torra that her dog snuck onto your ship? That seems like a weird choice.

They look so cute in their winter clothes

Annnnnnnd Buggles ran away. TRAIN YOUR DOG BETTER, TORRA

Torra, don’t run off into the wild.

Priorities! Feed hundreds of people first and then find the dog

Here’s the thing. I don’t know why Buggles has to be here in the first place? This is a weird narrative choice. This mission was dangerous enough without adding Torra’s pet into this mix. I feel like this could have been a good moment for Synara to step up, rally the pirates or act on her own, and she gets to help Kaz and Torra. But instead we’re chasing around Torra’s dog in the wild with an ice thing about to kill them when this could have went to another character’s development. These are all strange choices to me.

Also, I like Buggles, but I don’t LOVE Buggles so I’m not super invested if anything happens to him.

And there’s the manta ray

Hey, the two lost pirates are there!

THE TWO PIRATES TOOK TORRA AND KAZ’S SHIPS!

KAZ SHOT THE MANTA! LOOK AT THAT! HE ACTUALLY KILLED THE THING

They’re having a Bar-B-Q on the Colossus

Synara is making the pirates that stole their ships apologize. Synara is like the mom with all the dumb pirate children. By the end of each episode, she be like

Captain Doza is making a morale raising speech

Neeku was never going to leave and he made a sky for everyone!

NEEKU CALLED THEM ALL FAMILY!

This was a fun little episode. I really wasn’t a fan of the Buggles story. I wish they put that time into another character. The stakes were high enough. Honestly, you could remove Buggles from the story, and still have the exact same plot. I would have rather had Synara do more with Kaz and Torra. Or even bring the Aces back this week to help out.

Still, I loved it and I’m excited to see next week! See you then!
