A long pointless aside from the story you are actually interested in.
So when I first turned on the episode and noticed the hefty runtime I was rubbing my hands with glee thinking I was going to get more time this week with Din, Played by Pedro Pascal, Grogu and Bo-Katan, played by Katee Sackoff, but no it was mostly all dedicated to a forgettable secondary villain character from the earlier seasons that you likely won’t even remember.
What makes this so bad in my opinion is that the opening that sees Din and Bo running away from Remnant Imperial troops is then thrown off course for this glorified side story. This then trades in all the tension and energy the story had from this opening and for what? The story itself about how the New Republic treats those Imperials who are still around is not one I had ever really wondered about or wanted to know.
The episode tries hard to get you to care about these mostly new characters but I just didn’t. It felt weird and forced in, if they don’t have the material to cover the full number of episodes promised then they should have promised less. If this had been in Andor then it would have felt more in place, though not be the right time period, but for the Mandalorian it doesn’t fit at all.
Overall, easily the worst episode of the new season so far.
An Imperial warlord
A needless aside
I don’t care about the new characters
It is dull and drags on
