    Yes, Peli does say "Thank the Force." I wonder though if it's just a traditional saying that has lost its original meaning for many people, like saying "Bless you" when someone sneezes, or how "good-bye" is actually a contraction of "God be with you."

    I think The Child is hungry because he's setting up for a growth spurt, mental rather than physical. A large growth spurt. How's about Mando explain WHY he's not to eat the eggs. (Maybe explain they are unhatched babies?) The Child is not convinced, Mando finger in his face or not. Peli made her mark. She's is an interesting character. Better watch her. I'd do some research. She has some history.

    I feel like instead of “The Mandalorian: Season 2” they have accidentally made “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them: Star Wars Edition”

    I assume they are Kryknas, yes. They're definitely based off of the same Ralph MaQuarrie TESB concept art, at least.

    they were also in a legends novel i think. They were called white knobbly spiders, but they were both based off of ralph mcquarrie's concept art, so i suppose they are the same

    Elsewhere on the internet people are freaking out about Babyoda eating frog babies...

    The episode specifically tells us that the eggs aren't fertilized. There are no babies in there. Basic biology.

    It doesn't mean it's not disturbing that Babyoda is eating this nice lady's last chances to reproduce, but...still. There is no child murder, everyone stay calm.

    I like how they are changing genres from episode to episode. Last time western, this week creature-feature.

    Because I am petty like that, I love that Amy Sedaris got even more screen time, after so many people complained about her.

    He might be 50, but Baby Yoda is really still a toddler, goes after every shiny thing, will put everything in his mouth, does not know the meaning of 'no' and since he's only/first child is spoiled rotten.

    I liked the interaction with the New Republic because you can see that they are still figuring it out. I knew pretty much from the beginning that Baby Yoda will do some mischief and cause trouble and lo and behold - SPACE SPIDERS! (when he put it in his mouth I had to close my eyes).

    This was a 4 for me, I liked the first episode a little better. Did anyone see how long was this episode? I didn't.

    Unfertilized eggs of sentient species on a brink of extinction (as I understood)? Argument could be made. C'mon, we love a little murder baby. :D

    I was barely holding myself not to re-wind :D that much interesting was to me. If the third one is in the same style I give up from this show.

    It will be interesting to see if they find Mr. Frog alive after all this trouble to get the eggs to him...

    Yep, the same spiders, just this time they changed the desert Atollon to a frozen world. As others wrote those are Kryknas. Don't know how come those where transported to another planet. I am impressed by the ferocity of their attack, those are very very angry spiders :D

    I'm worried because they are all asleep at the end and that little green bottomless pit is still awake...

    It's so disheartening how pessimistic fans get when we have a slower episode (online, not necessarily in this thread).

    Last week is generally regarded as an absolute home run, and deservedly so. I think a bit of breathing room isn't a bad thing.

    Though, in a way, I understand. After this week in general, it feels like we could all use a little bit of Ahsoka right now.

    Are we not talking about the Star Wars meets Alien cross-pollination scene with the egg opening up in front of Baby Yoda? I feel like I've unknowingly waited all my life for that.

    I got the impression that it was only Frog Lady’s ( We really need a name for her or even a species) last chance to have her eggs fertilised so the rest of the species should be safe from that Little Green Eating Machine :D.

    It's possible "Frog Lady" is a (slightly re-conceptualized) Rybet.

    Notes on rewatch:

    That speeder is making a lot more noise coming back than it did going out when Vanth was talking over it. :rolleyes:

    There's a Moroff at the Cantina! But with tanner fur.

    Peli's sayings: "Stop your crying! You'll rust!" "Stop your mopin'!" "There is one small skank in the scud pie."

    That is definitely Pedro Pascal in the suit. He has at least one PP mannerism...

    We have the return of the Mando Sighs.TM

    Aw, nice parallel between Babyoda snuggling with Mando, and Mrs. Frog with her eggs. Also one with Big Spider protecting its baby spiders. :eek:

    Figures, Mom can't get even five minutes alone for a bath without someone coming to bug her.

    Good to see Mando's flamethrower being effective.

    Oh, that sweet, sweet pew-pew sound. <3

    Mando might not be the best dad around, but he's mastered the Dad Finger and the dad sayings: "If you need to use the privy, do it now. It's gonna be a long ride."

    Is that Chopper being the astromech unit in Trapper Wolf's X-wing? (chopper)

    Yes, upon rewatch it seems it's just her line/her family that might die out. Still sad though.
