    I am split between B and C. Also it could be D: Ahsoka accepts to teach The Child and Din decides to join the fight against Gideon. But we shall see.

    While the American Imperials took me out of the episode at first, they make sense given more thought. The vast majority of elite Coruscanti Admirals, Captains etc all died off, were defeated, or ferried off to the Unknown Regions under Operation Cinder. Gideon really is running a hodgepodge Imperial Remnant made from backwater worlds.

    D:..

    Din meets Ahsoka in episode five, where she tells him about Jedi and Mandalorians. Including a power jedi master of the child's race named Yoda! She doesn't know much about that race or about the home world but offers to take care of the child as a guardian and teach him the ways of the force as she worries he could be even more of a danger than now and dangerous to others.

    Din agrees to leave him with her and goes on a bounty side quest in episode 6 but in the end of it, he starts to really misses the child and decides to go back for him.

    Din confronts Ahsoka in episode 7 about taking the child back but both are attacked by Moff Gideon and an army of stormtroopers but they were tracked by Bo-Katan.

    Ahsoka has a sabre duel with Gideon in episode 8 while the mandalorians take out the stormtroopers. Bo-Katan kills Gideon and takes back the dark sabre to return to Mandalore and lead it. Ahsoka agrees to leave the child with Din but says she will find him later to check on the child. Din leaves with the child and joins Bo-Katan on Mandalore as a guest and see where things go!

    Ahsoka vs Gideon wouldn't be much of a duel, plus I think she'd leave that task to Bo, knowing how important it is to her and her people.

    Also, I'm almost certain we'll meet Sabine, Rex, and/or other familiar faces. Sabine would obviously make the most sense though.

    And what about Luke....

    Some great ideas there though! And I have a feeling you might be pretty close to the mark with some of them.

    I go with the C here, maybe a couple of episodes with Ashoka.
    I think it's the filosophy of the show (small doses for big/new characters). And Ashoka is such a powerful character. Too much in the show could eclipse the protagonism of the others I guess. If Ashoka come and go, there will be space for more new characters (new Jedi? Ezra? Sabine? Luke?).
    Although I can see a cool saber fight between Ashoka and Gideon to make happy the most demanding fans (maybe in the last episode, and Ashoka gives back darksaber to Bo Katan).

    Yeah no, Gideon wouldn't last a second against her. I think she will play a mentor/guiding role for an episode or two and will have to leave afterwards. Din Djarin/Bo Katan are the ones that have to deal with Gideon on their own.

    D. Mando will meet with Ahsoka in the next episode or in the one after that, considering the Crest condition he might not be able to reach to that planet in the next episode. They will do some job together, one maximum two episodes, then Mando will continue on his path. Chances are low that Ahsoka knows where to find the Yoda species. Ahsoka will not fight the Moff, this is a job for Mando, he started it he must finish it. Cara Dune and Greef Karga will help him.

    That was the good stuff. Yes it was fast and furious. Could have easily been another 15 minutes, but isn't that the point, to leave us wanting more? Great job by Howard in my opinion.

    The Frog reunion was the Star Wars hope theme, along with the birth of the offspring. I loved it, very powerful.

    I did not see a "signet" on Axe Woves. I don't think he can become a Nite Owl, as he is male. Maybe just a Kryze loyalist.

    I find it very interesting that "Child of the Watch" is capitalized. I would tend to think that Death Watch has evolved into what Din knows today, as there is a Vizla in this convert with him. Maybe he is a first generation of indoctrinated children of this new "cult", as he was rescued by Death Watch and they knew they would have to change to stay alive. I still think we need to know the details of the Purge to have any sort of clarity on this subject. The Armorer will have some explaining to do.

    Can't wait to see Ashoka in Live action, but I would guess we go back to Narvarro for this next episode.

    I am probably mistaken, but I thought that in an interview with Gincarlo Esposito, he alluded to Moff Gideon having some martial prowess and possibly some Force abilities. So maybe not a push-over when it comes to fighting.
    --- Double Post Merged, Nov 16, 2020 ---
    This will happen soon, I think and hope. Ahsoka and (hopefully) Sabine will make him take the helmet off. Ahsoka might even use the Force to remove it, which would be simply amazing IMO.

    I hope you don't mean they'd take off his helmet using the Force without his consent? That would be truly horrifying to me.

    I love that Din is being challenged on his beliefs, but it's also kind of heart-breaking at the same time. Its a subtle, but very effective way to show just how shattered Mandalorian culture has become. Din has lived his entire life in devotion to "the way" likely never even considering that it wasn't the only way. But, he seems to at least be warming up to the idea that there can be other Mandalorians who don't follow his exact creed. And maybe even some who aren't Mandalorians, but are worthy enough to wear the armor (coughTheMarshalcough).

    At any rate, I am glad that character growth is being pushed to the forefront of this seasons' themes, and I am anxious to see what else Din is about to learn along the way!

    Yeah, I gotta be honest, I would watch the show even without any of the "larger plot" re: Gideon, etc. (even though I love that stuff) because I just love to see Din growing as a human, especially as Baby Yoda is a catalyst for that change. Din is really getting forced out of his comfort zone and having to confront beliefs that seem to contradict these that he's had for so long. It's so interesting to me that he's going through this in middle age and TPTB didn't make this a coming-of-age story.

    I agree! I still think it is in a way.. the funny thing about coming-of-age is that it apparently can happen at any age. As long as you have an open mind. Some of ours just tend to rust shut after awhile! xD

    Yeah, overall I am LOVING the fact that this series isn't simply about a gunslinger for hire who looks cool and gives us plenty of oohs and ahhs.... I mean, it is. But it isn't only about that.. :D

    Yes, that’s a good point. And Din has really been stunted in his emotional growth, so this is kind of an adolescent-type awakening to the world around him.

    I was really not that excited about this show before it started because I thought it was only going to be all edgy and tough gunslingery. I am so happy I was wrong and it’s not! I can’t believe how fond I’ve become of this dude in a tin can. :D

    Even if it wasn't intentional, it's almost impossible to ignore the poetry of how Din is middle-aged (ish) and experiencing this enlightenment alongside a 50-year old child who is just opening his eyes to the world. And none of it happens if it weren't for the other.

    Yes, it’s so beautiful! And also an almost universal feeling for every parent too, I would think, to a somewhat lesser degree. I’ve been trying to figure out why this show has such appeal over a huge demographic, and maybe that’s partly why. Though we all love a good pew-pew. ;)

    Yes that too, introducing a super hero in season 2 will shift the powers and will create imbalance of the focus. No, I don't expect big things from Ahsoka, she is busy with her own stuff.

    They try to balance between human ( alien ) emotions, action, star wars lore and the view of the producer for the next generation of star wars movies. I think so far they do it ok, except maybe the second episode which was a lot of water, pardon ice, in the drink ;)

    Yeah having a child is immediately, brutally and efficiently bring you to a different reality. You only know it once you experience it.

    I don't think he is.

    After all, Bo-Katan might take issue with the way the Children of the Watch think, but she was still willing to work with Din and offer him a place with herself and the other Mandalorians working to take down the Imperial Remnant and restore Mandalore to some semblance of what it was before the Great Purge happened.

    I didn't quite understand the passion behind people who were so angry about the egg situation in E2, but I figure that everybody has their own experiences so I try to respect that.

    That being said, it was so great seeing Frog Lady and Frog Man reunited, and almost even better seeing them help Baby Yoda to take care of the tadpoles.

    Maybe I'm too calloused in thinking the egg thing was kinda funny, but I won't deny I also shed a couple tears of happiness once things turned more wholesome.

    I don't mean that he literally has people telling him "You're wrong for the way you think." I mean that for the second time in 3 episodes, he has seen a "fellow Mandalorian" remove their helmet and in doing so, act in a way that he has been taught is the antithesis of being Mandalorian. And yet in both cases, those "imposters" have proven to be high-character, reputable people. Had his back on more than one occasion, without him asking for it. He is seeing first-hand that his way of life is not THE one and only way of life for all Mandalorians. He is learning, and possibly progressing past his own steadfast ways.

    That's like eating babies. Sure they are not yet grown, not yet able to do anything, so you can argue that eating babies is ok because they are not yet developed into people. How do you feel? Do you understand why people get upset seeing the child eating all those babies, thsi little cute killer! :D

    Yep me too :) I was also touched when I saw the little fish popping out. One thing i did not understood was why the rest of the eggs were still untouched in the canister? Are they hatching them one by one, what a strange species! Or maybe they hatch one and let it grow before hatching the next.
