Solid finale...assuming one isn't looking for answers to anything about Baby Yoda.

Who knew TIE fighters could land like that? My toys have been incorrectly designed for years!

Thanks! Someone else mentioned that to me, so I guess there MAY still be some info yet to come.

Also, there was really no reason to drop this one early...the rumors that there may be something plot-wise that ties into TROS were false. So those out there wondering if they need to see this before the new movie need not worry about it.

Wonderful episode... loved the way it was written (by Favreau) and directed (by Chow)!

the continuation of the main story should make the naysayers happy.

The last episode drops on Friday, December 27th.

i didnít mean to LOL when
Spoiler:
the Child tried to force-choke Cara during the arm wrestling scene... he was just trying to protect Mando.

I thought this episode was excellent. That last sequence was really well done and I was genuinely surprised by the outcome. Sucks we have to wait over a week now!

A reminder that Deborah Chow, who directed this episode and episode 3, will be directing the Obi-Wan series in full.

Fantastic episode! Looks like Deborah Chow has directed the 2 best episodes of the season.

I assumed this was released early to not interfere with the release of the movie.

Yeah, they clearly didn't want one Star Wars product detracting from another. It makes sense.

Nice rebound episode ... despite 60% of it being about putting the crew together.

Can we give Deborah Chow a SW feature film now? No, no, nevermind ... I love what she is delivering in this format!

The big finale reveal next week:

Spoiler:
Baby Yoda is carrying the stolen plans for El Pollo Locoís secret blend of herbs and spices. Many Bothan Chicken spies died to get that information.

Do we really need spoilers on that?

Undoubtedly that is what will happen. I was ecstatic to see his return and a looking forward to more out of him.

Hopefully this means the crew will stay together for next season! (Hopefully they donít kill them all off!)

Good episode, I was sad to see the ugnaught (kuill?) go. Baby Yoda healing the wound was surprising to me. I thought maybe he would just draw the poison out. Healing the entire thing though? That is a pretty generous force power. If he stays with Mando's crew, who needs a medical droid?

I need someone to make a cut with "Gonna Fly Now" or something from Rocky IV playing over the montage scene of the IG unit training for its comeback.

Good episode..glad we're back to the main story line. Most likely looking back the only thing I'd have changed was dropping the 5th episode and adding an extra one for this final arc.

Maybe the best episode of the season so far. Wishing this was more than eight episodes long as it's gone by far too fast.

Spoiler:
Really hoping Kuill pulls through. It didn't necessarily seem definitive to me that he's dead. I was expecting IG-11 to take out the Scouts since even though he isn't a hunter anymore Kuill had mentioned he'll protect. Curious how Mando and company are going to get out of the situation they're in. Tons of Troopers and Moff Gideon holding them down. Unless the other Mandalorians help out again.

Solid episode. Interesting that it ended on a cliffhanger as the entire season has been mostly self contained episodes.

I liked the introduction of Giancarlo Esposito's character at the end.

Poor Kuiil. I liked that character. Sucked that he got taken out and now The Child is MIA.

good episode. glad to see IG88 uh 11 back. Hope the remaining guys, including Apollo Creed survive and this turns into a Firefly esque band of space misfits in S2.
