The supposed leaked scene specifically shot for the Mando 2: Mando Harder trailer in that Obi video does make chuckle. Let’s assume, just for a moment, that its accurate (and obviously, SPOILERS AHOY if it is but, well, what article are you reading again?)... on what planet did two bounty hunters think it was a *good* idea to go after Ahsoka? Either they’re the dullest vibroknife in the drawer or whoever gave out the contract omitted a few teensy weensy but ever so crucial little tiny details.

I mean, how does that conversation even go? “You want to go after the woman who survived an entire starship full of clone troopers she trusted trying to kill her with zero warning, fought Maul, Vader and Palps in the space of an hour AND basically spent her entire life fighting a war?” “Yeah but... there’s TWO of us!”.... Fair enough, let’s go.”
