The Acolyte – Evening – Assessment: It Was a Evening to Bear in mind


As I and plenty of have guessed, Mae’s Grasp is Qimir, a Sith. Whereas that was no nice shock, the remainder of the episode was and left me on the sting of my seat. We picked up proper the place final week’s episode ended (and I didn’t have excessive hopes as I used to be bored out of my thoughts final week). My fears have been shortly put to relaxation. 

Osha awakens to the Jedi getting murdered by the Grasp (later to be revealed as Qimir). This lightsaber battle was nice. We had an important mixture of martial arts and use of the Pressure. It seems to be like all is misplaced till Grasp Sol lastly seems and battles the Grasp. 

The whole episode was nothing however battles. Sol orders Yord to take Osha to security again on the ship as he tries to determine who the Grasp is. It’s clear they’ve some familiarity between them – one thing that also stays a thriller by the top of the episode. 

Jecki in the meantime battles Mae in an try and arrest her. The younger Padawan succeeds in getting the cuffs on Mae however is stopped by the Grasp. She battles him utilizing two lightsabers and it’s for lack of a greater phrase – epic. Sol arrives to help and you’ve got two on one with the Grasp additionally attempting to seize a fleeing Mae to punish her for betraying him.

Unfortunately, Jecki is eventually killed by the Master which sends Sol into a fit of rage. Osha convinces Yord to return and help and Yord then gets his neck snapped. I did not expect us to lose these two characters but it was a brilliant decision as the audience has become attached to them emotionally. During the fight with Jecki Master’s helmet is knocked off revealing his identity as Qimir. 

He seems very upset with Sol and explains he is a Sith and wants his own pupil – an Acolyte. These Jedi have never confirmed the existence of the Sith so this is very jarring for everyone. Just as Sol was about to end Qimir, Osha stops him. Osha puts her flashlight on Qimir’s back so the moths can take him. Osha begins to question Sol but Mae stuns him. Osha and Mae have the worst family reunion with Mae besting Osha and then cutting her hair and taking her place with Sol when he awakes. We see Qimir free himself and use his Force power to heal Osha. 

This episode felt like classic Star Wars. A whole episode dedicated to lightsaber battles? Sign me up! Sol lost his whole team, has no “Mae” in his mind and will be returning empty handed. He will have to answer many questions. I am very excited to see what happens next.
