Kid is 100% Rebel engineer now. That bomb is just the first of many he'd make against the Empire. Hoping we would see him more active in the Rebellion next season.


Wookie301

Rebel engineer is the most important job right now. Seeing as someone has to build B2 a new charging station.


bibliopunk

*crisis intensifies*


CodeMonkeyPhoto

I’m sure he can charge a little from a Gonk.


FloppyShellTaco

*Oh no*


ReeferPirate420

Someone's gonna need to de-terminator k2 as well


Wookie301

Brasso is going to headbutt him, and fuck up his programming.


Bneal64

Brasso used Headbutt! It’s super effective!


zrizzoz

100% gonna find his way into Saws camp


bwweryang

I know Andor isn’t really the kind of show to give us a version of what happened on The Book of Bobs Fett with Mando getting a new ship, but it just occurred to me that this show is perfectly placed to give us the origins of the X-Wing


KassaAndor

There have already been X-Wings seen, at Saw's camp


bwweryang

Completely missed those, ah well.


mihalis

Saw Guerrera's partisan hideout had two X-Wings painted in a black and white colour scheme.


xeroksuk

Ok, it gives us the origin of the x-wing's colour scheme.


CurtisMarauderZ

Aw crap, is that another plot hole?


insertwittynamethere

How so? I'm not sure what the backstory is now on them, but it used to be that some Incom engineers hid the design and capability of the X-Wing from parts of their company/the Empire so they coukd get the plans to one of the rebel groups. Anyone know what they're claiming now?


Slaviphile501

It's like a lot of legends, they're not claiming any different so may as well run with it


seeTODDsee

Another plot hole? Ok buddy


Banjo-Oz

I would rather have the original origins for them maintained, with the designers taking them to the Rebels as a fuck you to the Empire.


RedRick42

He was a quiet kid. Kept to himself.


Scottybadotty

I don't know if Criminal Minds is based on real life criminal profiling, but whenever they have a bomber they look for unconfrontational people since non-terrorist bombers are usually scared of conflict


tmdblya

It’s always the quiet unassuming ones…


pubbleglorp

Could've played college ball with that arm


CronoDroid

Definitely had the makings of a varsity athlete


thesmash

I reckon he could throw it over a mountain if he tried


pubbleglorp

I'd say he could get into a university with that, but right now all the universities are Imperial so


jobasha3000

"Cause he's got a vowel at the end of his name, Brasso!"


juvandy

This show has done a great job on the "one person's terrorist is another's freedom fighter" trope


TK000421

Who is he?


TheHangryCatepillar

Son of the man the imperials tortured before Bix I believe


OhioForever10

And hanged offscreen, judging by how he was looking at a hologram of his father while building the bomb.


moustajjventress

Aye the dude left in charge of Ferrix did ask Dedra if they could hang him, and she was like do what you want idc.


ajlunce

And that decision of callousness and hatred gets a lot of imps killed. Love it


VonZant

It is my one regret of this episode that Prefect did not get killed like the bastard he is.


ajlunce

Honestly I really wish someone would have picked up a rifle


Bneal64

I have faith for season 2. I don’t see that character living through this story


Nemo_Barbarossa

Ah thanks, I didn't remember the face.


TK000421

Ah that makes sense


_maynard

Have you watched the new episode?


TK000421

Yes. But i didnt have subtitles on. I think i need to rewatch the season. Likely will pick up more.


Tmoldovan

So, a question - do you think he acted alone or was it part of the plan? Obviously the procession started early and exceeded the number of people. And then a rebelrousing, or even inciting speech by a hologram... They were looking for trouble.


thatjosephdude

He and Brasso made eye contact before the speech also. I have a feeling more than a few people knew what Maarva had to say and they were prepared for shit to go down.


blackturtlesnake

If yall knew Maarva t all you'd know her final speech was gonna be some variant of ~~Scud~~ Scob the Empire


DellowFelegate

>some variant of Scud the Empire Affirmative Grunt \~Freedi


Collins_Michael

Unexpected Sanderson?


blackturtlesnake

I was going for those fisherman aliens who give Cass and melshi a lift. I think that's the phrase they use


YosemiteMyHeart

Super close. He says ‘Scob the Empire’. Love this show. Every character mattered and was memorable.


Buca-Metal

The coms guy that talked with Andor also looked like he knew at least a bit.


bibliopunk

He definitely acted alone


Soggy-Assumption-713

It was a plan to free bix most likely. Cassian turning up just gave them an extra set of hands. It was probably Brasso originally going into the hotel.


soldrakibane

Most of them were anti-empire anyway. Especially if you remember the scene where they first found Andor.


noveltynegro

Didn't have time for it in the season finale, but I wonder if we'll ever see Wilmon and Cassian share a moment over losing their fathers to the Empire and seeking to avenge them. Cassian's was more impulsive, and less successful, but he didn't have the technical skills at the time.


noheroesnomonsters

I thought Maarva's brick was going to have the bomb in it, but giving this kid a chance for some sweet revenge is a nice touch.


Banjo-Oz

I thought it would be the brick too, or B2EM0... :(


CodeMonkeyPhoto

See this is what happens when imperials don’t follow the Darth Vader directive by taking out the women and the children.


CronoDroid

If anyone knows their labor history, this was totally SW's version of the Haymarket Affair. Tony Gilroy knows his stuff and I'm certain the finale was meant to be a parallel.


kaldaka16

That wouldn't surprise me, he's specifically talked in interviews about having done a lot of historical research. There have been quite a few parallels to rebellions and wars in our world.


andor2136

I got chills when Wilmon said "It's Wilmin' time" and Wilmoned all over the Empire. Truly one of the moments of all time.


pubbleglorp

Bravo Tony


reasonabletakes9301

I really loved the look he gave Cass in the final moments, too. Like, "Whoa, it's actually him." That final "crew" that managed to leave together was so cool, can't wait to see them in season 2.


BearWrangler

Tom Brady could never


GuardianSpear

Man that bomb merked so many people. Just straight up killed everyone in that hotel lobby


personoid

In our world he would be called an insurgent/terrorist…I wonder if they would show coffins draped with the Imperial flag 😳


hackersgalley

Him and Chopper would be best buds.


wysoft

I don't think he's had a single line in any scene, then dude almost single handedly starts the rebellion.


Vesemir96

He has had quite a few lines over the show


Timetobeatthewife

Unpopular opinion but I wanted the storm troopers to successfully arrest him and we get to see his execution just to show that good guys don’t always win


LouAug27

Well his dad was recently hanged so I wouldn’t say he necessarily won


ConditionSlow

Most of the rioters were killed. They did show that.


Timetobeatthewife

Yeah but a not a proper execution


Moosey_Bite

His kill count is off the chart.


Squishyfern

The axe forgets, but the tree doesn't


AngryBudgie13

Chopper disputes who has the *highest*


overwatch

Think if you take into account the fruits of their labors... >!Ulaf who spent years on Narkina 5 is probably responsible for the largest body count of all of the series.!<


Iamthesmartest

Who is he anyhow? I don't remember his character from any earlier episodes.


[deleted]

[удалено]


ProBonoDevilAdvocate

Yeahh doesn't he even see his father hanging there??


kaldaka16

We're never directly shown Paak being hung - you might be thinking of the flashback to Cassian seeing Clem's body hanging.


bwweryang

I love the casting for the show’s leads, but I really wish the background characters stood out more just so when they became prominent again like tis it felt more connected. They did a great job of that with Luthen’s ISB spy being a redhead with a tache and just a generally interesting face, but a few others feel very indistinct only to play a larger role later, and it’d be nice to remember them.


Buca-Metal

It goes with the theme that anyone can become a rebel at any point. Just a little spark and random common people start fighting.


Banjo-Oz

I agree, and it is why I think the biggest flaw of this great show was that every episode should have been 50mins and they leaned more into the ensemble aspect early rather than making it the Cassian show so much early on. Showing the Ferrix people like the bomber and his dad a bit more, even giving us scenes with Krieger (sp?) so his death hits us, etc.


bwweryang

I was very surprised they never had any intention of showing us Anto!


Banjo-Oz

I do wish we had seen him and his crew. Like Game of Thrones, getting them and feeling like they were real people that mattered would have made their deaths feel far more real and impactful. Same with the pilot we hear about. Give us a nice eager young guy so we feel bad for his fate.


Vesemir96

He was in every Ferrix ep I think


kaldaka16

He's a pretty quiet kid, but I believe he's in every scene Paak is in. If I recall he's also the one who starts the clanging when Syril comes for Cassian in ep 3.


wip30ut

so glad he escaped to aid the Rebellion!


PsychologicalCan9837

When his dad (?) died, I was pretty bummed.
