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.
