The Mandalorian Chapter 15 “The Believer”

Cara Dune uses her influence as a New Republic Marshal to get Migs Mayfield released from prison. As a former imperial sharp shooter Mayfield can use his code cylinder to acquire the location of Moff Gideon’s ship. The crew travels to the planet Morag which houses an imperial mining base. Mando and Mayfield intercept a mining rig on its way back to the base and dressed as stormtroopers fight off local pirates to successfully deliver the volatile substance Rhydonium. Once inside the base Mayfield recognizes his old commanding officer Valen Hess, so he cannot enter the mess hall to use the code machine. Mando takes the cylinder and enters the mess and uses the machine but it requires a facial scan so he removes his helmet. He finds the location but is quickly called out by Valen Hess and invited for a drink. During the conversation Mayfield loses it and shoots Hess which requires the pair to fight their way out of the base. With the support of their team outside they escape and with a final shot Mayfield destroys the base. Cara Dune reports Mayfield killed during the mission and allows him to go free on Morag.

JJ talks much needed character progression for more than just Mando. Jay leans into all of the tie-ins. Ian talks about the fact that this is the first episode without Grogu.

    Such a good episode! There were two moments that I really enjoyed that were somewhat subtle. The first was when Mando is fighting the pirates, at the beginning of the fight he still fights like he was wearing his beskar armor and he gets wasted at the beginning of the fight until his martial skills takeover but it really shows how reliant he is on that beskar and how it affects his instincts in a fight and I have to wonder if that they only play out at a later date but I also really enjoyed when they were deciding who was going to go in with mayfeld and Boba’s excuse of “they’d recognize my face” which is a call back to the original trilogy where Boba is one of the top bounty hunters employed by the empire but also further back to the prequels with the clones. The clones were still around at the beginning of the empire and so Boba’s face would be in the imperial database but the nonchalant way that line was delivered cracked me up. Keep up the good content!!

      Alec that is a great catch. I didn’t notice that he was fighting like he still had Beskar on at first. It was definitely on display in my 2nd viewing. I also had a good chuckle at Boba’s comment about his face being recognized. Nice call back humor there.
