Once there the band of heroes finds more than they bargained for, stumbling upon science experiments, a message to Moff Gideon regarding acquiring more blood from The Child and a whole battalion of Imperial Storm Troopers, Tie Fighters and Speeder Troopers. The group succeeds in escaping from and destroying the base. With the repairs to his ship complete he and The Child head back out to find Ahsoka Tano while unknowingly being tracked by Moff Gideon

    So a couple of things I really enjoyed with this episode. The first was the fact the Carl Weathers directed this episode and he gets to shoot down the tie fighter. You cannot tell me that was originally in the plans. Mando was probably supposed to shoot down all three in a dogfight and Carl Weathers said “Nope, I get to shoot one down” which (I’m not sure so JJ fact check this) is the first confirmed cinematic ground to air kill on a tie fighter. So that puts him in a class all of his own.

    The second thing was that I felt like this episode really spent some time trying to iterate that the child is a child. The red and blue wire scene was comedy gold and then with the cookies in the classroom so great. It also kind of made me realize that Mando has really spoiled the child. He doesn’t get told “No” (unless it’s about committing homicide) and if anyone looks at him wrong Mando blasts them to kingdom come. So I wonder if that will be how Mando “loses” the child so he can be “properly trained” which is a strong theme in Star Wars. I’m excited that they are tracking Mando and I hope that helps contribute to an incredible finale with Ashoka and the Mandalorians kicking major Empire butt.

    Love this series! Keep it up!!
