Just when I didn’t think this series could get any more exciting, it goes and pulls this episode out of its back pocket. I knew my previous assessment of the episodes alternating between being amazing and just good was never going to last, now as the series approached its final stretch I’ve never been happier to be wrong. Nor could I ever predicted what was going to happen in this episode; as so many little factors start to come together.
Here I am, talking about a series way later than everyone else. Only really because the final episode of the Mandalorian only hit Disney+ here in the U.K. a couple of days ago, and I didn’t want to especially go out there and steal the damned show. I love Star Wars, and was willing to wait an extra few months to see the series as legitimately as I could.
I’m shocked at how I managed to avoid as much information about this series as I did, leading up to now. Well, except for baby Yoda, although that was unavoidable to people living in the deepest reaches of Wild Space. But having seen it all now, this show feels like the closest live action thing I’ve seen that truly evokes that same sense of storytelling that made me love the old Expanded Universe so much.
