The repulsors are active even when the main (forward) propulsion engine is off. Same way your car’s internal clock keeps running even when you turn off the engine.

They didn’t tell me to drink responsibly at the end. I guess I’m getting hammered tonight.

Best Western touch: Mando negotiating with the Tuskens via sign language, and doing it very much in the John Wayne style.

I’ll subscribe if Toby Huss is coming back to play Big Mike. *singing and strumming guitar* “And the cops bought a Nazi flag tooodaaaaay.... I got $3! We can buy a poodle!!”

Glad it’s back. I look forward to finding it for free somewhere, because I’m not buying another fucking streaming service.

In their brief interactions in Force Awakens they seemed to have a great chemistry together, and a good character dynamic — one wanted to escape the war, the other was running towards it.
