Nope. Wasn't just you. I thought the build up was disappointing too.

And for basically the same reasons. Dass was built up for a big showdown with Vader and gets pulled out of the fight. The assassin gets a build up that has gone on for several arcs, and with zero payoff in this one. He saves Vader. It could lead somewhere in the future, but right now, it left no payoff. I think that's what really hurt this issue and arc. There wasn't a cool reward.
"I believe toys resonate with us as humans, we can hold them them, it's tactile, real! They are totems for our extended beliefs and imaginations. A fetish for ideas that hold as much interest and passion as old religious relics for some. We display them in our homes. They show who we are. They are signals for similar thinking people. A way we connect with each other...and I guess thats why I do toys. That connection." -Ashley Wood
