rear mandalorian Fans were divided on Episode 3 of Season 3, but it’s safe to say everyone wanted more of the main storyline for Episode 4. Mando has long been unjust and boring.
However, the moment I opened Disney+, I thought this was more Mando-focused.Given that mandalorian Season 3 Episode 4 is only 33 minutes long. What I didn’t know was how important this episode was.
Warning: The Mandalorian Season 3 Episode 4 Spoilers
Young Abandoned Troubles (No, Not Grogu)
Star Wars Fans get Mandalorian training at the start of the episode. However, in the early scenes, the Stealer appears at the water’s edge until he is interrupted by Din Djarin, who wants him to train with the other Foundlings. This is a glog playing with a hermit crab.
When put in front of another young Mandalorian to fight, it makes one wonder why Grog doesn’t wear a helmet. explains. The young abandoned child he tries to confront claims this means he’s too young to fight.
The weapon of choice is darts. Grogu looks cute with his paintball dart shooter on his arm. He won by only 3 points, and even if he lost 2-0 quickly, no one would lose faith in him. After some pep talk from his dad (Din), Grogu does a mid-air flip from his third shot. He fires all three of his on landing and hits the target to win.
Moments later, the Mandalorian lair is attacked by dragon-like creatures who swoop in and fly away with the boy Grog has just clutched. Later I learned that this child’s name was Ragnar. Bo-Katan followed them in his ship, returned to the Mandalorians, and informed them of his pursuit to the lair.
flashbacks and cameos
Grog is left with Armor as Din and Bokatan help rescue Ragnar. She talks about how when she forges her chest plate for him, she has to melt and reforge the Mandalorian, much like her armor she’s working on.
As she does this, Grogu has a flashback to Order 66 and his rescue. Fans will learn that the Jedi who rescued Grog was played by Jar Jar Binks himself, Ahmed Best. was poorly received, Best was a considerable hit with Star Wars fans.
Finally, he was given a chance to redeem himself.
This new character of his, Keleran Bek, is very important. Without him, Grog wouldn’t have survived Order 66, and of course Dinn wouldn’t have met Djarin. If so, what a different series The Mandalorian would be.
The Mandalorian reveals that while trying to plan an attack, this monster has a habit of coming and stealing the Foundling. I warn you that you cannot run while your gun is on fire. It’s also revealed that the Mandalorian has to go to a place alone to eat, without showing his face. What a lonely life they lead!
When the Mandalorian rescue team arrives at the creature’s lair, they find the boy is not there. Paz Vizsla reveals that the child is his son and that he must be found. As he walks away screaming for the child, he awakens three very angry baby monsters.
That’s when the parent (presumably the mother) arrives with Ragnar in his mouth. She holds him over the baby and is about to feed him when the Mandalorian intervenes.
When they return to the others, they learn that they have brought back monster babies, stating that they will train them in Mandalore’s ways as well. It seems to contain many different species.
The Armorer offers to repair Bocatan’s crest, which was damaged in battle. Bo-Katan instead requested the Mythosaurus Seal, telling Armorer that he had seen the Mythosaurus Seal when he was in Waters in the Living Room of Mandalore. The Armorer is either unsurprised or does not believe her.
mandalorian Episode 4 of season 3 is the shortest of the season so far. Fans get some great cameos from the redeeming actors as well as some great fight scenes. They feel very Star Wars.
It’s refreshing to have a fast and fun episode after an extremely long and stretched out episode 3. The final conversation between Bo-Katan and The Armorer is sure to have an immediate impact, too.
mandalorian Season 3 Episode 4 is now streaming on Disney+.
