The Mandalorian Chapter 13 “The Jedi”

The episode opens on Corvus where the planet’s magistrate and her security watch a battle taking place in the foggy woods just outside the city walls. Soldiers are being cut down methodically by the former Jedi Ahsoka Tano. After landing on the planet The Mandalorian is tasked by the magistrate with killing the Jedi for the payment of a pure beskar steel spear. The Mandalorian finds Ahsoka and after fending off a brief attack he introduces her to The Child. Ahsoka speaks with The Child through The Force and informs Mando that the child’s name is Grogu and he was raised in the Jedi Temple on Coruscant and was taken as the fall of the Republic was taking place. Din helps Ahsoka infiltrate the Magistrate’s hideout. We find out that Ahsoka is looking for Grand Admiral Thrawn whom the Magistrate serves. Ahsoka informs The Mandalorian that she cannot train Grogu due to his attachment to Din Djarin. She also tells him to take him to the planet Tython where there is a ruined Jedi Temple still strong in The Force. There Grogu can choose his own path and possibly call other Jedi to him through The Force.

Ian was surprised that Ahsoka was introduced in the episode intro. Jay questions the marketing decision behind the name Grogu. JJ is in a full on geek coma after this episode. Mattson questions JJ’s familiarity with “Sam” Jackson.

    Oh man I love what they are doing with this show. I am really hoping we get some more details on how Grogu got out of the temple because that could open up so many doors, to bring in characters from the Star Wars Legends or more characters from the animated series. I’m hoping we get to see who rescued him and I am really pulling for clone force 99. The bad batch has their own spinoff coming I believe which I cannot wait for but I really hope that Grogu is smuggled from the temple by clones (since there is canon that not all clones obeyed the order to purge the Jedi) and not by a surviving Jedi. Ahsoka Tano in live action was awesome and I really hope we get to see more from her. Keep up the great content guys!

      Alec you just melted my brain a little. I didn’t even think about someone like the bad batch, who yes do have their own animated show coming soon, being the ones who took Grogu from the temple. That would be an awesome way to have that happen. Good call sir!

        I am adding “melting JJ’s brain” to me resumé. I would love for it to be the bad batch and have the pilot episode of the show be them busting in to the temple and making off with Grogu because animated Grogu has to be just as adorable as puppet Grogu and that would be an epic pilot episode and could give us the backstory of Grogu without adding a flashback episode to the Mandalorian. Keep the Mandalorian about Mando and connect Grogu’s backstory to another show. That is exactly the kind of brilliance I expect from Dave Filoni and John Favreau and I hope we get to see it
