    Maybe people age slower or faster depending upon what planet you were from. Obi wan was about 30-35 at the end of ROTS, and looked about 70 in ANH.

  • One thing that didn't strike me as great was Mando's helplessness in the tank. I mean, he was gulped up by a Krayt dragon. Why couldn't he stay under water as long as he stayed in the dragon's mouth/ throat/ whatever? Why couldn't he fight as effectively in the water as when he was literally swallowed?
    .

    This really bothered me. His helplessness in the water was extremely awkward and went against character. Really ruined what should have been a great action scene. Not too impressed with Bryce’s directing choices as the episode had some wonky moments. All of the action sequences seemed a little off and awkwardly done.

    The nice thing about Bo-Katan is that even though I didn't remember her name before she said it (it's been a while since watching TCW:AS), I instantly remembered her, and her story, and her relationship to Sabine & Sabine's clan. I really mean **instantly**. The look was so perfect it was like they did this episode first & then told the animation artists from TCW, "I want you to draw her."
    .

    You may not be too far off base here, The person that voiced her in the cartoons is the same person that is acting in her live action iteration.

    Interesting! Thanks for the tip. That does turn out to be an intriguing possibility once you know the actor is the same in both shows.

    So just putting this out there, with what we see in this episode, could beskar armor Mando be the key to the "Mandalorian" tag.

    He can unite the 3 ideas they placed out there, people from the show (LS), people who follow the creed (LS, as I suspect he will run into Mandalorians later who mat not appreciate what he did), and now the people from the planet.....

    If they dont give him the bounty hunter tag, then it would kind of exclude (young) Boba, and Jengo.

    Bo Katan.
    Nightwatch.
    Next Ahsoka Tano.
    This series is unloading on a fan boy/girls dream!!!
    I'm glad they're not trying to recruit non Star Wars fans to the series, not that they're not welcome, but realising the fan base is so massive, give them what they want and it'll be a hit.
    I'm so happy, since Mauls appearance in Solo, that they're willing to dive in to any Star Wars content and deliver it.
    I'm very excited for this series, its hitting so many of the right notes for me.
    Bring on Snips 😁
  • If you go back and look at Mando fighting (even in season 1) I think it’s clear that he’s actually not that good at fighting. He’s got a lot of spirit and courage and never gives up but usually it’s his allies that are the skilled fighters. And of course he’s got really good gear which helps him against groups of lesser geared opponents.

  • Episode was awesome, with the pace picking up from the previous one. I think they set up potential growth for Mando as a character. This season is getting good, I'd dare say better than the first.

    Sure people have told you this before but you should definitely watch the clone wars series. It’s amazing

    +1. The first couple seasons might feel simple and boring, but if you stick through it, gets way better after those.

    Wow! Ahsoka Tano’s going to be in the Mandalorian! Who could have seen this coming!

    She was in it - did you spot Rosario Dawson at the docks in an early scene?

    That wasn’t Ashoka. It was Koska Reeves
  • Is there a difference between Children of the Watch and Death Watch? This episode makes me wonder how much of Mandalors true history Din was taught growing up and if he will have to come to terms with it. Only a couple more days until the next episode!! Can't wait!
  • I''m not entirely sure, but I believe that death watch bought into the hereditary superiority of the ethnic people of Mandalore, the people born there of Mandalorian parents. I don't think they would embrace orphans/converts.

    No. That seems to just be a reference used by people from the planet at this time to reference people who have come from the Death Watch "organization".

    Yes it seems he does not have the full story, but it also seems that the current group they are calling the children of the watch, are not fully following Death watch principles either.

    It will be interesting to see how this develops.
  • This was the way

    I think that will be major plot point during the show, and thus a growth avenue for Din (much like his view on droids is changing). I'd like to see how they develop the Children of the Watch/death Watch connection. I may be wrong on this, but I don't see the two groups being one and the same. So much interesting things happened in last episode.

    My bad - it was - only excuse was I was watching on my phone and am also very excited about RD bringing a bit of Old Town kickassery the Ashoka role
  • Yep, certainly enjoyed this one.

    Going out on a limb here and tentatively linking things together. Could we see a live version of Rebels in a future episode. Bo Katan hints towards a Sabine Wren appearance, its like showing us C3PO and never having R2! We've seen lots of Twileks - so can this mean we see a Hera? Also with Fulcrum Ashoka Tana explicitly being stated - I hope we can see The Ghost land and out pops Zeb.

    definit showdown between mando's and Gideon...I think it goes without saying...but then again, that Blue faced strategist is going to be behind something more sinister isn't he?

    If they have Thrawn and by extension Ezra, along with the rest of the Ghost crew I would literally be uber impressed. I can't wait to see today's episode, but I have a feeling it is going to be good.
  • @CG_Doja_Fett when can we get a chat for season 2 episode 4 of Mandalorian?

    EP 4 spoiler while we wait for a new chat
    For now, I can see episode 5 with Ashoka, and episodes 7&8 for epic showdown against Gideon no. 2, but what about chapter 14
