    I would like that. Mads Mikkelsen aka Galen Erso taking over the Harry Potter Franchise as Grindlewald and his brother joins Live action Star Wars ... 2021 looking good

    Ahsoka declined to have anything more to do with Grogu though.

    I have a feeling that in a future episode, all the well known characters will show up again. Could be obvious? Could be wrong?
    Great series so far. Me likey.

    She also declined continuing being a jedi even before ROTS though
    --- Double Post Merged, Nov 29, 2020, Original Post Date: Nov 29, 2020 ---
    She was kicked out of the order for something she didn't do. Was offered to join again but she declined after feeling betrayed by them

    In Rebels, she called herself "I'm no jedi." She left the Order in S6, of Clone Wars. Now, Bo Katan called her a "Jedi" and the title was also called "The Jedi". That said, I think the titles are from Din's perspective. He wouldn't know any better. If Ahsoka still doesn't consider herself a "true Jedi", then how would Katan know how to find Ahsoka? Maybe Katan calls her a "Jedi" out of respect?

    That's a really cool plan. Would love to be this way.
    The show is good with surprises. I think the last scene will be a huge revelation too. First season an object. Second season a character.

    During the last episode we shouldn’t get on the net for anything before we watch the chapter.

    During the clone wars she was accused of doing something she didn't and she was removed from the order, after the real villain was found they apologized and offered her to return. She got a tough time rethinking here past and her future and declined. Later on she walked her own way and become a gray jedi, they walk half way between the dark and light, serving the force in the way they think is needed.

    Her famous quote is: "I am no Jedi"
    --- Double Post Merged, Nov 29, 2020, Original Post Date: Nov 29, 2020 ---
    That shows the controversy of the Jedi order, they kind of abduct force sensitive children for the sake of the greater good. But those children and their families have no choice. The life of those children is shaped in the way of the order, follow the Jedi path, have no personal life, have no partner, have no children, serve the Jedi council, go to whatever mission they send you, die for the jedi order. Is that good and fair and bright?
    The fate of Anakin would be completely different if they went one step further to take care of his mother. Recognizing the weak spot and danger they could easily go back to Tatooine and free her and then move her to some safe planet, Naboo, Alderaan. The problem here is that Anakin will have a connection to his mother, and the order dictates that he must have a connection only with the order. A typical scenario of controlling behavior. Jedi are no saints in any way.
    She knows there a few other jedi survived order 66, her expectation is that no one will show and the child will choose to stay with Din and have an ordinary life. This is her way to give something back in exchange for the help to defeat the magistrate.
    The force nexus on Thython is a door to the force itself, it doesn't belong to the jedi or sith. We have no clue what may come out of the episode. I expect some interesting story from next episode.
    --- Double Post Merged, Nov 29, 2020 ---
    I avoid reading anything related to Star Wars a few days before the next episode. And I am also carefully using the CANTINA. I just want to fully enjoy the episode without being spoiled. It's no fun to go watch a movie when you know what will happen:D
    --- Double Post Merged, Nov 29, 2020 ---
    I have the same expectation, perhaps for the last 2-3 episodes. It's the way how it happens in the westerns :)

    But she considered it. She tested Grogu. For what purpose? Was that just a tease?

    Maybe Filoni wanted to avoid a repeat of the kneejerk reaction to Luke's instant rejection of Rey in TLJ. So he softened it to prevent heads 'splodin.

    Herein lies a problem too. Viewers who haven't watched Clone Wars or Rebels don't know that she's not a Jedi. And she doesn't deny being one in this chapter. Just states that the Jedi order is over with.

    She is probably tired of explaining the difference, and common strangers will anyway find it difficult to understand the difference, so I guess she just say "Yes, I am a Jedi" and you can see her smiling a bit. Most people still thing if one is not Jedi than he is a Sith, it's like there is no other way ... you are either on that shore or on the the other, cannot be in the sea :). I guess she tried Grogu because she might want to have an apprentice too, being no Jedi doesn't mean you can't train one in the force. And yes the Jedi order is over.

    Such a good episode, like many episodes this season. I cannot believe there is only 3 episodes left, I hope they continue the quality and immersion into the universe of The Mandalorian.

    And I hope The Mandalorian himself is careful with that new spear, given what happened the last time he wielded a spear in GOT ;)

    Sorry if someone has mentioned it.

    Is it me or the guardians of the fortress emit Probot Empire sounds?

    They must have some kind of interlinks to receive information.

    I'm surprised no one has mentioned how much this episode felt like an episode of Avatar: the Last Airbender. The fortress was 100% Fire Nation. Having seen pretty much all of Filoni's SW work, this is the closest it's ever come to reflecting his previous show, in my opinion.

    You're right! Now I feel an urge to rewatch Airbender, it's been too long.

    As a Warhammer fan I liked the "Death Korps of Krieg" vibe from the fortress guardians....

    Here is one of my Krieg troopers I painted
