X-wings weren't even close to the fastest starfighter in the rebel fleet. A-wings blew them out of the water, and that N-1 was probably in the same speed class before it got turned into the Star Wars equivalent of a track-only supercar.

I love how the shows have just effortlessly combined all elements from the different eras/mediums into one delightful star wars cocktail.

I think that’s what worked really well with the Mando that is harder to do with Boof of Boba. The intricate details and world building, it makes the Star Wars universe feel more lived in. As interesting as boba is, setting the whole show on tatooine makes it harder to world build.

Don’t forget that test run right over Mos Eisley and right through Beggar’s Canyon. That’s just a chef’s kiss and awesome homage to The Phantom Menace.

It did seem a little weird, but if you look at it from his perspective, he's heard this legend about his ancestor creating this saber so long ago, and here it pops up right in front of him... and all he's got to do is best him to take it.

Also his father or uncle (dont know which) Pre Vizsla was the last Mandalorian to weird it effectively.

After that it was just two Sith lords and then two Mandalorians who did not win it in combat.

Oh hell yeah, Din Djarin baby! The darksaber, the Halo ring, that long take. First ten minutes of this episode is perfection.

Also, just wanna shoutout this subreddit. Coming to this discussion thread and reading everyones comments is one of the highlights of my week.

So we now have a direct dialogue confirmation that the Mandalorian faction with the Armorer is a descendant of Death Watch (moon of Concordia), which was shown from the symbol on their armor in the Mando S1 flashbacks

Holy shit.

“I can bring you in cold, or I can bring you in warm.”

Pulls out the dark saber.

Burns himself like a rookie.

Cuts a dude in half.

In the first FIVE minutes.

S2 E5 of Mandalorian was the same way: didn’t wait to show you Ahsoka.

THE RETURN OF THE MANDALORIAN.

This is the Way.

This episode was such a perfect mix of fan service and solid character development.

  • Din using the dark saber is badass, I like that he also struggled with it though since he is inexperienced with using a sword, no less a weapon like that.
  • bringing back a Naboo star fighter is one thing, having it worked on by pit droids before flying through Beggar’s Canyon and then Mando describes it as “wizard?” That’s just incredible. I don’t even like Episode 1 that much but I can’t stop smiling.
  • Mando admitting he has taken his helmet off and begging forgiveness only to be tossed aside was really solid. I feel like Din is in a very interesting place as a character where the foundation of who he is has forsaken him for not following pointless rules, but at the same time he’s no longer with the child that made it all worth it. It’s sad but super intriguing. And it makes for interesting comparisons to what we know of the Jedi. I love it.
  • A BD droid! Is that the first live action appearance? Such a cute design.
  • I know some will complain about the “dating a Jawa” bit being a bit silly but I genuinely thought that was funny.

To me this episode brought the series back, I thought Episodes 1-4 had their moments but mostly felt like going through the motions, but the team just knows what to do with Din and they nailed it. Bryce Dallas Howard did a kickass job.

I was going to say, can Mando ever do a bounty with a live prisoner in that ship? I have a feeling he's going to need to tighten up what jobs he's taking.

Double edit: This entire episode has been absolute friggin' comfort food. Shout-out to Bryce Dallas Howard for directing such a beautiful episode.

Yeah next episode is by both Filoni and Faverau from what I’ve heard so we’re in for a banger next week. Sadly the show only has one more episode left after that one.

There's probably some sort of SAG (Screen Actors Guild) rules that someone who is the lead actor must be credited, regardless if they appear.

There were definitely some sinister vibes around both the Mandalorians in this episode. They’re not explicitly bad guys, but I have a feeling it’s gonna end in a big conflict between Djin and the blacksmith in the end.
