Today’s episode was very important for plot.

It carries through on last week’s chapter and setups the season finale next week.

It follows the same organization that most of the episodes have followed which is:

  1. Setup
  2. Staging
  3. Battle
  4. Conclusion
  5. Lead in to the next episode

Per last weeks lead in, we see our hero, Din, following up with Fett and Shand’s help to save Grogu. Dune joins in, and we bring in Mayfeld. They follow some intel to get a lead on the child.

Of course a battle breaks loose and Mando saves the day with some unexpected help. As the story progresses we get to see some personal conflict open up and Mando has a choice to make. He, of course, makes the right one to save Grogu.

The episodes concludes with another fire fight, and an honor debt paid. At the close, our lead in to the finale, we see Djarin issue a warning of what is to come.

Overall, not the best episode of the season. With one as intense as last week though, we can use a little bit slower pacing. Also, with the finale coming up, we need to have some relative calm before the storm erupts into its full blown power. Next week should be a major showdown and has some high expectations riding on it. Even with high expectations, The Mandalorian has not let us down this season so far. If you have been holding back to binge the whole season, we would recommend starting now. This will give you the build up necessary for next week’s season finale. 

This is the way.
