    I think that's what they've been setting up since we first learned he didn't have one. It is one of those things that seems obvious but would also be really satisfying for audiences at the same time.

    Yoda’s Crest (AOTC):


    A27BEFF6-E483-4D48-A25A-9F4F0E0BE201.jpeg


    “A crest was used as a personal symbol by the Grand Master of the Jedi Order Yoda. This crest was placed on the door to his quarters in the Jedi Temple on Coruscant. It also seen on some of the furniture within his quarters,[1] carved into some of the exterior walls of the Jedi Temple, and on a wing of his personal starfighter.

    Behind the scenes
    For Yoda's crest I relied heavily on asian character design. The basis is however very close to the symbol for Feng Shu. [sic]PHILIP METSCHANYoda's crest was designed by conceptual artist Philip Metschan for Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones.[2] In the 1994 novel The Courtship of Princess Leia, Luke Skywalker was given a stone box adorned with "the two glyphs that spelled Yoda's name".[3] The emblem drawn by Metschan also featured two glyphs at the center of the crest.” (Wookieepedia)

    I enjoyed it, but it was probably my least favorite of the three.

    I asked a similar question in a previous episode thread, but how can one tell if there was good directing? Serious question.

    Sure sounds like the Empire wiped out most of the Mandalorians. I'm basing this on what Werner Herzog said (paraphrasing: "finding a Mandalorian is more rare than finding beskar") and the fact that the one Mandalorian was furious that Pedro's beskar had the Empire insignia on it.

    It is different in TV than in it is in film simply because of what the job entails. In TV, directors are more responsible for guiding the showrunner's story to its next stage while adhering to the internal logic of the show often laid out in a Show Bible. Directors in TV need to understand the characters as part of a larger team and be able to maintain continuity of story while also designing the visual story in a way that it stays true to the show's visual formula and gives audiences efficient and enjoyable ways to see the characters in a new light that doesn't stray too far from what has been established. The Showrunner is the auteur, the director is the guardian of that vision. You can tell the job was done well if the story/episode is technically executed in a good way and if it seems to make sense within the established world of the show. The actors, at a certain point, will know the rhythm of the show and will know their characters inside and out so in later seasons you may end up seeing cast members directing episodes, which is common for long-running series. With the actors, the directors are blocking them (placing/moving them in the scene) and proving minor insights but rarely anything major by midseason.

    Everytime the blacksmith mando hit the beskar with a tool he would flash back to the onslaught against his people. I'm wondering if the purge has to do with the beskar. Did the empire commit genocide against Mandalore to rob them of this obvious precious resource?

    Everyone on a production has input from the producer, the writer, and the actor portraying the character. A lot of what we see is also created in the editing room. The cinematographer puts their stamp on everything too. Not to take anything away from anyone else, but it's the director who has to take what amounts to a written concept and turn it into a visual reality. Ten different directors could take the same episode ingredients and come out with ten unique takes on it all, because everyone sees things differently.

    The Mandalorians are the only non-Force user people to defeat Jedi and Sith. That made them a threat to The Empire.

    Judging by the frog scene, that wouldn't be a problem.

    Then I start worrying whether Babyoda is potty trained. Must...suspend...disbelief...:p


    That seems very likely since destructive mining/resource plundering by the bad guys has been an ongoing theme esp. in the Disney era of SW (like Lothal or Rose’s home planet with the FO).

    THIS IS THE WAY!

    I am not going to lie, I started crying when the all the Mandalorians showed up with their backpacks and started wrecking shop. What an episode!

    From title's double meaning to the way they built the emotional impact from the first scene (That's not a toy.") to the last (gives baby Yoda little ball), the Mando lore, the action, the humor. What an episode. My favorite so far.

    So, who saves Young Mando? Obi-Wan? Yoda? A different Jedi? A Clone Trooper?

    Another solid episode. I've really enjoyed the series so far, but I'm gonna get carried away. The most groundbreaking thing about the show is the tech they're using to make it. It's pretty incredible that this was filmed in a studio in LA. The real judgment on this series is what happens the next 5 episodes with this story. So far it's been pretty light on details. I'm thankful the episodes aren't longer which is a 180 from where I was last week. If these episodes were longer this might feel more drawn out.

    So far things have been a little predictable since he's picked up the child. I'm curious where they're going with the flashback, but it's safe to assume he's rescued by someone important.

    The best part of this show is having quality Star Wars content week after week. January is going to rough after this season ends and the movie is released.
