"The Box" is the third part of a four episode arc in which Obi-Wan Kenobi goes deep undercover with a couple of bounty hunters scheming to kidnap Chancellor Palpatine. This time Kenobi and his new pals participate in a contest - the aforementioned Box - to determine who will actually participate in the abduction. As much as I've enjoyed the story to this point, it goes a bit off the rails this week. The contest is awfully gimicky, a cross between video game and Japanese game show. Perhaps this helped to compress what could easily have been another three episodes into one but I'm guessing the writer had the Box idea first, then built the rest of the arc around it. Just a hunch.
Derrown, a Parwan, is one of the other bounty hunters competing in the contest. He is the first Parwan to appear in the Star Wars universe, though the idea for the species goes back to unused concept art from the cantina in A New Hope.
