Contrasting the themes, story lines, characters, etc. between the shows is allowed (welcomed, even). "Versus" debates/arguments, however, are a deal-breaker.

    -------------------------------------

    Discussion of New Episodes - Rules
    (1) One of the mods will post each week's episode thread a few days before it airs on Disney+.

    (2) Discussion in the actual episode thread will be limited to that specific episode, NOT future episodes; past episodes may be referenced.

    (3) The Mandalorian episodes air on Friday on Disney+. Anyone who shares plot details about an episode before then must use spoiler tags. After that folks will begin discussing their reviews and thoughts which will likely include spoilers. To anyone concerned about being spoiled before watching the episode it is your responsibility to avoid the thread until you have had your chance to view.

    (4) Spoilers like character deaths, appearances, and major plot details must be spoiler tagged in the new episode thread prior to the episode television air date.

    (5) Do not post any preview video clips from the individual episode in the episode threads.

    (6) Official episode commentary may be posted in this episode thread.

    (7) Do not discuss future episodes in here.

    (8) Reviews for each episode may be posted once they have aired. One of the mods will add a grading poll to that episode's discussion thread.

    We will definitely get at least one returning cameo.

    1. The flashback sequence should be completed, probably with a known Jedi.

    2. The mystery character from Tattooine.

    I would be fine with a cliffhanger if it doesn’t feel cheap. I want to invest in threats and storylines and not just “yay more Mando”.

    Similarly I think Baby Yoda will survive the episode and continue onto season 2. I LFL that is the case I hope Mando finds him a safe place and offloads him.

    I know it may be a bit heretical to say this here but I think I want Baby Yoda to go. He’s been amazing and all but I don’t want the show to use him as a crutch going forward. I don’t know how that would play out with a lot of this season focusing on a young single father protecting his cub sort of thing but I think I want Mando back to basics.

    There were some credible rumors that...

    The end of the season includes other Yoda species puppets. So it’s possible Baby Yoda gets dropped off with his kind.

    My guess is that each season explores a different conflict and a different challenge to Mando. This one is about the challenges of parenthood, and next season will be something else. So I suspect Baby Yoda may be a little less central going forward.

    Season 2 spoiler

    Right. But how central BY will be is an open question. My guess is that he’s a little less central.

    Its unbelievable, I always disliked the Boba Fett hype or this Madalorian hype from Kotor or the TV shows. I was even lukewarm when they anounced a series about a...Mandalorian and now I am a beskar addict. o_O
    I have spoken.

    I am here and I will be here. I woke up very late so I won't be sleeping at that time.
    I am super excited and hyped for the season finale.

    I am beyond psyched for this one but it is going to be a long wait for more star wars so I am a little sad that it is almost here.

    So... does Mando show his face this episode? And if so to who?

    I say yes but not until the end of the episode. He takes it off to say goodbye to Baby Yoda.

    Today is exciting but bittersweet.

    Exciting because it caps off an amazing week and half of new Star Wars content. Its been so great to continuely have these stories just keep coming at us.

    But now its bittersweet that after today, there will be no new TV/Cinematic visual Star Wars content for a while other than the Resistance cartoon; something that I've yet to get really into.

    I've basically turned into a Star Wars junkie in needing my regular fix of new Star Wars content. I guess I will just binge-watch season one again of The Mandalorian and hope that gets me through to the next lot.

    I just hope the episode doesn't end with Baby Yo being kidnapped.

    My two predictions: Boba Fett makes an appearance. The baby carriage is full of explosives.

    Mr. Obvious prediction: IG11 kicks butt.
