So you may have noticed the opening music is changing for every episode. For each episode’s opening credits, one or two instruments are being added, making the credits sound more grand as we go through the show. For example, episode 1’s credits start off relatively simple, but with episode 2 you can hear the addition of a stringed instrument. In episode 3 you can hear the addition of a percussion instrument and so on. We think it’s because throughout the show, Cassian’s character is being fleshed out, with different elements added on with every new experience.
We also think the addition of each instrument is determined by what’s happening in the episode. For example, in episode 3’s opening credits, we hear the addition of a percussion instrument that is often found in a lot of traditional indigenous music. In that episode, we see flashbacks of young Cassa being taken in from Kenari, by Marva and Clem. By Episode 4, fast and intense drums are added on due to the high stakes robbery mission. But, Episode 10’s opening credit does sound a lot more hopeful than the past few.
The episode begins with Ulaf getting bagged up and thrown out like trash. Which is what these men are to the empire. RIP Ulaf. and if the actor looked familiar it’s because in 1989 he ended up with Michael Keaton’s most famous line of all time [what are you, I’m batman].
His trolley is being elevated by anti-grav, which we’ve seen used to move freight before in star wars. [I’ll find broll]
It was heartbreaking that they still had to walk the guy through the floor where he worked his life away. Even when he’s dead, he can’t escape the assembly line. Now the most important character in the prison storyline isn’t Cassian, it’s Kino Loy. Kino Loy is a stand-in for the regular working class dude who just wants to do his job, kepe his head down, and stay out of trouble. The entire episode hinges on his willingness to step up and lead his men into an escape. So it’s fitting he’s the first close up of the episode, as we can see him turning this over in his mind.
When Cassian urges him to escape, he says he didn’t have enough guards and ‘they’re afraid, right now they’re afraid]. And then Kino says they killed a hundred men to keep them quiet [i’d call that power / power does’ panic].
So a few things to address here. Cassian points out that whatever they’re making is something that the empire needs. And more than likely they are main components for stardust, aka the death star, which is running behind schedule.
But more important is hw cassian understand s the power of fear. Fear is the root of the empire. The emperor has power through the dark side,and the dark side, at its core, is driven by fear, like master yoda said [fear leads to anger, etc].
The emperor wants the government afraid of him, so the government will inspire fear in the people [anh, fear will keep systems in line, fera of this battle station]. But Cassian sees through this. He knows that fear of the empire is their weakness [power don’t panic]. And this is because fear only creates the illusion of power, and what fear actually creates is rebellion. The empire built the death star as an instrument of fear, but its destruction actually rallied systems to the cause of the alliance.
And this sentiment is said out loud here:[rather take them down than give them what they want]. And this is what Luthen has wanted along [clips]
Last week I pointed out the many similarities this prison show has with George Lucas’s first feature, THX-1138. And Cassian points out another one. [they don’t have enough men, everything is automated]. This is similar to THX, where the humans were controlled by machines and their daily job was to build more machines.
Back on Coruscant Dedra is looking at a star map that is very reminiscent of the star charts we saw in A New Hope, very cool.
