This pair of scout troopers don't treat Baby Yoda (who's in the satchel) too well and so pain comes for them. Emboldened by his arrival, Mando and Greef (who gives himself a little liquid courage by knocking back a shot) burst outside and take on the troopers, with Cara providing cover fire from inside. It's perfect narrative poetry: this is the thing and person from which Mando must defend his new, tiny clan. That planet should sound familiar to even the most novice of Star Wars fans. Moff Gideon shouts through the big open window all the information he knows about the three of them. Back at the Razor Crest, Mando buries Kuiil and sees that Baby Yoda's become attached to the Mythosaur pendant. They're scared off when a black lightsaber-like blade cuts through the hull. Leaving the Armorer behind (she takes out a bunch more troopers), they find a lava stream and a ferry that'll take them to safety. Can you blame her? More importantly, he refers to Mando by his real name: Din Djarin. Scary Imperial Moff Gideon has the upper hand as we step into the season's incredible last episode. Does reuniting Baby Yoda with his clan mean finding more members of his species or bringing him to the Jedi? "I would prefer to avoid any further violence and encourage a moment of consideration.". Bo-Katan Kryze obviously no longer possesses the Darkssaber, and we can only assume she would give it up over her dead body. "Burn them out," Gideon orders one of his death troopers. Baby Yoda isn't an enemy though -- he's now a Foundling. The episode was directed by Taika Waititi, and aired on Disney+ on December 27, 2019. Along with that, Mando gained the tools and status he needed to finish the transition from hunter to protector — and a whole human being with feelings, at that. This is no small side story anymore — the show will enter a new phase in its second season as a full-throated, major piece of canon thanks to the Darksaber reveal. "I'm out of ideas.". © 2020 CNET, A RED VENTURES COMPANY. If the Child belongs anywhere, it's with Mando — but again, that's the overarching emotional journey we're going on with our favorite chrome-domed himbo as he continues fully realizing that. Contains spoilers for The Mandalorian chapter 8, "Redemption". Congrats Mando! The droid hands the baby to Cara and tells her he'll catch up after seeing to Mando. Midway through “Chapter 8: Redemption,” Mando is pinned down inside the cantina with Cara and Greef Karga. The camera pans over the Gideon's smoking TIE, as Jawas start to pick at it. The great big galaxy has opened up to pour over Mando, and he doesn't even know it. Things were looking bleak for Baby Yoda and Mando in episode 7 of The Mandalorian last week, as the terrifying Moff Gideon stepped from the shadows (and out of his awesome TIE fighter) just in time for this week's season finale. It isn't his destiny to die the warrior's death he first insisted on — it's to live and be the parental figure he never had the joy of receiving. After a little help shaking off the grim reaper, Mando had bestowed upon him an official signet to represent his complete identity within the Mandalorian creed, and finally got a slick jetpack of his very own. "I didn't think I'd see this again -- why don't you hang onto that?" It works, and they float outside safely… until Gideon sweeps by in his TIE. She then tells them to escape to the lava flats using an underground tunnel, then adds our hero's new signet -- the image of the Mudhorn that made the little guy reveal his powers -- to his pauldron. "You have no choice; you must reunite it with its own kind," the Armorer declares, giving Mando his new mission and basically saying he's Baby Yoda's dad. We delete comments that violate our policy, which we encourage you to read. Cara survives the conflict against the former Imperial troops in the Season 1 finale and seemingly decided to stick around on Nevarro to join the Bounty Huntersâ Guild and work with Greef Karga. IG-11 prepares to give his life to save his friends. It stayed there for centuries to become a generational token passed down to descendants of the Viszla clan that once ruled the home planet. That sure was a last-second lore drop, wasn't it? Maybe droids aren't so bad after all. The Mandalorianâs Season 1 finale included an Easter egg that confirmed why Rebel shock trooper Cara Dune hates the Empire more than Mando hates droids. It includes an R2 unit that's been customized with strange-looking limbs to let it row. Itâs also the only planet that the Empire ever successfully destroyed. Our heroes initially seem to be winning as Mando picks up the E-Web and mows down baddies, but a very pissed off-looking Gideon arrives and shoots him in the back of the helmet, then blows up the cannon's power generator. Spoilers for Mandalorian Episode 8 ahead. Unfortunately, the metal vent cover withstands even blaster fire, so they're stuck. Moff Gideon likely knows very little about Mando as a person and only knows his name because it's on an official governmental list on Mandalore, but Moff and everything he represents makes for the perfect kind of pre-packaged Instant Villain for our helmeted hero. He voices the show's assassin-turned-nurse-droid IG-11, but you might know him as the director of Thor: Ragnarok, the upcoming Thor: Love and Thunder, and Jojo Rabbit. We know Luke Skywalker will train a group of students in a few years, but Kylo Ren burns all that down. It was once held by Darth Maul. It seems Gideon was an Imperial Security Bureau (ISB) officer during the Purge (which scattered the Mandalorians across the galaxy), so he had access to Mandalore's records. Be respectful, keep it civil and stay on topic. We rejoin the jerk scout troopers (Jason Sudeikis and Adam Pally) who killed our pal Kuiil and snatched Baby Yoda as they arrive at the edge of the city. Being of no traditional Mandalorian clan himself, he has become his own collective unit with the Child (a.k.a. Now that we're at the end of the first season of The Mandalorian — and the first official, major foray post-Skywalker canon — the spread of the story at hand for Mando has widened exponentially and begun suggesting ties back into other preexisting canon content. Dragging a badly injured Mando, the good guys retreat into the cantina. Discuss: The Mandalorian season finale recap: Baby Yoda gets into wild action in episode 8. This touching moment is cut short by the arrival of a flamethrower-wielding stormtrooper (who has cool-looking red accents on their armor). (Cue sweet guitar riff.). The importance in revealing his name now on The Mandalorian chapter 8 is both to underline just how dangerous Moff Gideon is, and also to compound the humanization of Mando's character that occurs within the episode. They engage in a little target practice on a landmine and prove to be hopeless shots -- like most stormtroopers. Except it isn't. Looking angrier than ever, Moff Gideon emerges and stands atop his ruined ship. IG-11 kinda had to be destroyed -- he was too powerful and could've dealt with pretty much any threat. So episode 8, which hit Disney Plus on Friday (and a week after The Rise of Skywalker arrived in theaters), sees them fighting back against the Imperial and his army of goons. Next time the TIE passes, he blasts up using his new jetpack and places a detonator on the hull. Most regular people in the Star Wars galaxy despise the Empire for obvious reasons. "I am not a living thing," IG-11 reminds him, before taking off the helmet to reveal the handsome (if a little bloodied) face of Pedro Pascal. Krennic) and pretty damn scary. They soon catch up with Cara, Baby Yoda and Greef in the sewer tunnels and decide to ask the other Mandalorians to escort them to safety. For those unfamiliar, the Darksaber is an ancient lightsaber dating back over a millennium. We'll be sitting on our hands for the next several months waiting to find out when the second season of The Mandalorian arrives (hopefully) sometime in 2020. He reunites with his allies and scoops Baby Yoda up into his arms, while Cara announces that she'll stay on Navarro and Greef offers to make her his enforcer. Oh, and they each PUNCH BABY YODA when the little guy acts out. The former rebel tells Mando to take care of the kid. Discussion threads can be closed at any time at our discretion. Until then, we've got season 7 of The Clone Wars sometime in February. he tells his wee green son. Let's take a look at how much bigger Mando's story has become and what it will mean for the next hotly-anticipated season, whenever it arrives. The show hinted at it previously, but we finally see the full traumatic flashback to the moment his parents were killed by battle droids and the Mandalorians took him in. It's a deeply humanizing moment for our hero (whose full name has now been spoken on-screen) to show his face in his most desperate moment, visibly frightened and lost like any other person in the face of death. Exhausted by his effort, Baby Yoda has a lie down afterward -- he clearly won't be using his healing power to fix Mando -- just as IG-11 kicks open the grate and gives them an escape route. How much does that matter to the plot of The Mandalorian? Seems like Mando and Baby Yoda have themselves a new nemesis. Nobody hanging out with him on-screen needs to call him by his name, but we should hear it in this particular episode's context, after we've learned many of this man's deepest truths and see him at his temporary lowest. The Mandalorian and his allies come to know their … This happened during the events of A New Hope, and itâs one of the most crucial events in Star Wars history. After all, Why would any good person like a fascist regime? We donât know exactly when she was born, but sheâs a similar age to Luke and Leia. The Imperials set up an E-Web heavy repeating blaster cannon that'll cut our heroes to ribbons and Mando finds a sewer vent that'll let them escape into the underground tunnels leading to the Mandalorian "covert" where he got his armor upgraded. Gideon has the upper hand for much of the episode, but isn't prepared for all of Mando's toys. Still sad to see him go. "That was unpleasant, I'm sorry you had to see that," he tells Baby Yoda, who looks at this new protector with his big beautiful eyes, before they speed off toward town. On the season 1 finale of The Mandalorian, Moff Gideon emerges from his wrecked TIE fighter — because of course he was going to, we know how this works — and reveals the real twist by holding the mythical Darksaber. Ominous, huh? Hopefully our little green friend isn't caught up in that. Enter IG-11 (Taika Waititi). He sends a burst of fire at Baby Yoda, who uses the Force to stop the flames and sends them right back. Within action-packed shell of The Mandalorian chapter 8, a rich, succulent nugget of characterization for Mando was slowly revealed.
