I’m still all riled up from talking about the Mandalorian season 2 finalise, so much so that I simply couldn’t wait four more days to post it. It’s fine though, because I’m pretty on top of my top ten entries now. All I have to do is write these intros, as you might be able to tell from this very specifically dated one. Today’s anime is one of those ones that never seems to be on my mind all the time, so much so that I end up watching it in chunks rather than week to week.
Which is weird really, because when I am watching it, it’s a great show. One that I’m glad I get this opportunity to talk about it considering I’ve hardly said a word about it the whole time it was airing.

While there have been no bad episode of the Mandalorian this second season, there has certainly been a trend of a very exciting episode being following by a good, but not amazing one. “The Jedi” certainly continues that trend by being one of the best episodes of the show in its entirety so far. Reintroducing a much anticipated character into the show while also giving us some genuine backstory the Baby Yoda himself.
Which means that might be the last time I playfully refer to “The Child” as Baby Yoda.
I knew we wouldn’t be getting to Ahsoka right away. They’re always going to hold that reveal off for as long as they possibly can. So, what we get here feels like something of a transitional episode. In it; Din Djarin and the Child return to Nevarro and catch up with some of our favourite characters from season 1.
