The latest Forces of Destiny episode was released on Friday already – but maybe has flown somewhat under the radar due to some other Star Wars movie being released on that day. Anyway, check out “Triplecross”, it’s a fun episode featuring Qi’Ra, Hondo and IG-88. The ending is somewhat anticlimactic perhaps, but Hondo is fun as usual! One thing about this cartoon is worth noting: apparently Crimson Dawn put a bounty on Qi’Ra, and her outfit suggests that this episode might be set after the Solo movie. So whatever plan Qi’Ra had, probably didn’t work out? Leave your thoughts in the comments!
