Thread: Why?

  1. #1

    Question Why?

    Why didn't Jabba kill Bubo after Bubo tried to assasinate him ? I mean c'mon , if someone tried to kill me , and I caught them , I'd kill them for sure . Jabba should have put Bubo in the Rancor pit . That would have been funny watching the Rancor try to pick up Bubo since he's so tiny.
    Get over here Leia , and stop making out with your brother !

    Jabba had a weird sense of humor and obviously didn't feel threatened by Bubo

    Bubo aint that small Huck. He's at least the height of R2 and as wide as a gamorrean plus he has a mean bite. Jabba probably admired his courage and liked the fact that next to Bubo, Jabba looked attractive!

    Where "text" & "friend" are (n) & "fail" is (v)


    Why didn't he kill Tessek? Or Bib? Or Ree-Yees? Jabba, unlike Vader, keeps quality, able people around him, even if they're less-than-trustworthy, without killing them to make a point. He only tries to kill outsiders (i.e. Luke) or less-valuable dancers for sport.
    I predict that the upcoming Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi film will include the word "and." Multiple times.

    Wait don't forget about me!! Who did Tessek come to whenever he needed something done? Me!! Who planted the bomb in the Sail Barge? Me!!!

    Oh wait, this is EU we're talking about. Disregard, I'm innocent. You can't prove a thing.

    The simplest explanation is that it wasn't revealed--or should I say decided?--that everyone was trying to kill Jabba until almost fifteen years later.

    Methinks, though, a more thorough explanation might be along the lines of the proverb "Keep your friends close and your enemies closer." Ree Yees, Bubo, Tessek, Bib Fortuna, J'Quille, Dannik Jerriko, and the monks (not to mention some I've forgotten) were out to get him, and they constitute a sizable chunk of his entourage. Obviously, he can't kill everyone, because word would get out--without necessarily including the info that there was a plot on Jabba's life involved--and he'd never be able to get quality help again. So he keeps them where he can watch them closely. And, like Bel-Cam said, he kills off less important folks occasionally to scare them.
    That's my jacket!

    and Lando. Don't forget Lando.

    If Jabba couldn't peg Lando as a plant, how on Earth (Tatooine) could he know the intentions of a few muppets ?

    Because he was a Muppet himself?
    Darth Vader is becoming the Mickey Mouse of Star Wars.

    Kylo Ren - came from Space Brooklyn, although he moved to Space Williamsburg before it was trendy.

    The use of a lightsaber does not make one a Jedi, it is the ability to not use it.

    Wishing he was at SDCC. *sigh*
    I hope you will all forgive me, but I feel completely out of the loop. Who is Bubo? I don't recall any assasination attempts on Jabba, at least not in the movie, I mean other than Luke, but that was more of a self defense move.
