‘The Acolyte’ Episode 3 Review: Boring, Drawn Out Nonsensical Garbage

Rumors are right. Star Wars is dead.

Without even getting into how the episode shits all over George Lucas and Star Wars, The Acolyte Episode 3 is boring and filled with drawn-out nonsensical garbage.

Did we really need to dedicate an entire episode to the backstory of Mae and Osha—something that probably could have been done in a 5-minute flashback?

There are only eight episodes this season, so with three already done, there are just five left. We didn’t need to waste an episode on the past, especially when jack shit happens.

So in the first two episodes, Mae wants revenge on the four Jedi. Why? Well, I had thought they killed her family and village, which was insinuated. Makes sense, as that is why that one Jedi committed suicide, right (which doesn’t make sense but let’s pretend for the sake of the show)? The four Jedi must have done something terribly wrong. An atrocity?

Well, it turns out, much like in the first two episodes, the Jedi didn’t do anything. They simply show up and ask to test the children. Then Mae flips her lid, starts a fire, and she kills everyone.

Now, is there a twist where, when the fire started, the Jedi killed all the witches? I’d be down for that.

Was anyone else hoping that when the Jedi showed up and the head witch took control of the Padawan, it would be lightsaber time? Nope, it didn’t happen. Aren’t the witches Dark Side users?

Also, three episodes in and no lightsaber action. Speaking of, this is called Star f’n Wars, and this show is really light on action. Episode 3 had ZERO f’n action. WTF?

I also again feel the Jedi are f’n useless. Notice how the one witch mom says something like, “There are only four Jedi. No one will miss them.” Huh?

Only four f’n Jedi? Are you kidding me? Do any of these Jedi live up to Anakin, Obi-Wan, Qui-Gon, Mace Windu, Luke or even Ahsoka? The Jedi in The Acolyte aren’t Jedi, and The Acolyte isn’t Star Wars.

Rumors are right

Now regarding shitting all over George Lucas, yep, sorry shills, the rumors are right.

The episode reveals the two lesbian witches use the Force to create Mae and Osha. It’s also revealed the Darth Maul wannabe carried the twins, yet they look nothing like her and more resemble the other mom who possibly doesn’t share genetics with the girls. Well, that must be how the Force works!

Exactly as I said, what Kathleen Kennedy, Leslye Headland, and Dave “I sold out” Filoni did was to retcon Star Wars and make Lucas’ story no longer relevant and special.

Anakin was born through The Force without a father and had twins with Padme, Luke and Leia, who went on to balance The Force.

In The Acolyte, the lesbian witches have twins, one obviously the Dark Side and the other the Light Side, so in essence, they are Anakin, Luke and Leia all bundled into the “power of one.”

George Lucas should have never sold Star Wars. Bob Iger should have never appointed Kathleen Kennedy as the head of Lucasfilm. Star Wars is a complete joke. Disney is a complete joke. #RIPSTARWARS
