7 Things to Love about The Mandalorian S2E6
Here are the top 10 Things to Love about The Mandalorian S2E6 entitled “The Tragedy” which is now streaming on Disney + and stars Pedro Pascal and more. Now streaming on Disney Plus!
Also before we proceed, here’s my SPOILER ALERT
- Din Djarin chuckling while calling Grogu
No Disney. We don’t want to cry with this tender scene. But goddamnit this is making things more and more tough for fans who may end up seeing Mando and Baby Yoda (yes we still call him that buzz off) go their separate ways.
2. Fenec Shand and Boba Fett teaming up
There were already rumors going around that Boba Fett would be an integral part of the second season but I wasn’t expecting him to appear together with a Season 1 character in the form of Ming Na-Wen’s Fennec Shand.
And they have a straight and simple backstory, one that audiences could go “okay, I can get behind that”. And they are super effective as a unit and even later in the episode when they are working together to fight off Gideon’s ground forces.
3. The Slave-1
That other iconic ship from Star Wars also makes an appearance and in its various scenes elicits a great big nostalgia. I hope everybody who watched The Mandalorian S2E6 felt the same way especially as they did a generally good “fan service”.
4. Grogu/ Baby Yoda and the Force
Its also nice that the episode strengthens the second season’s ongoing main quest of getting Baby Yoda back to either a Jedi or somebody who is better suited to care for him. Ahsoka rejected the idea considering she still had some unfinished business with her master Anakin Skywalker, so it was Tython for the wayward duo.
And the place where Grogu has a lot of callbacks and references too. Apparently the butterflies he was playing with had some connection to the Force and there’s even some very ancient runes in the stone where he sat down. Plus there’s visual similarities between the child’s meditation and that of the deceased Jedi master Luke Skywalker.
5. The Razor Crest
The Razorcrest has been an integral part of the series even if its not a sentient being. There are a lot of key moments in the series which played out inside the ship. Mando’s trust of other people even began thanks to the Razorcrest. So seeing it being blasted into smithereens is akin to that scene where the Going Merry is destroyed in the anime and manga series One Piece.
6. Dark Troopers
Was it just me or did Favreau insert some bits of Iron Man in the scenes with the Dark Troopers that Moff Gideon sent out to kidnap Baby Yoda aka Grogu. They look awesome too and I like that they followed the principle of Chekov’s Gun with this. Here’s to hoping they get more screen time in the last few episodes for the season.
7. Boba Fett
Whether its his old and worn look at the start of the episode or when he dons his iconic armor, Boba Fett is the biggest treat for new and old fans! Those precious minutes where he saves the day and dispenses a world of hurt is also a testament to how much the creative team and the production team loved both the character and the actor playing him – Temura Morrison. And even better is the fact that this isn’t the last we’ll see of him. Hoo boy.
