Hello and welcome to my second review on The Mandalorian! But first, let’s do some quick updates.
You might have noticed if you scroll under Geek in the main menu you’ll see two new links: Star Wars and Challenges (which then leads to you guess it – challenges I’ve done).
Under Star Wars you’ll see all the posts I’ve written about Star Wars! I’m trying to do more things like that and I’m going to go through and break it up via Marvel, Doctor Who, Supernatural, etc. That way its slightly more streamlined and anyone who wants to see a certain thing will be able to find it easier.
Anyway, now that that’s out of the way, let’s move on to gabbing about The Mandalorian Chapter Two. This one probably will be a little more spoilery than the first as there is a lot to talk about.
Before proceeding, read my spoiler warning here and proceed with caution.
We are still fully on the Baby Yoda (that’s not actually Yoda) hype train over here on this blog.
If you read the last post on this you saw at the end I mentioned baby Yoda being found. Baby Yoda was the mission that The Mandalorian accepted for a high price and was supposed to be killed on sight (according to the Bounty Droid). He decided against it, killed the droid instead and has pretty much adopted this Baby Yoda as his own.
The internet is having a field day with this, as you can imagine.
He’s developed an odd connection with the baby Yoda and wants to protect it at all costs. Why he does I’m not so sure, if I’m being honest. I have a gut feeling that he isn’t going to end up killing the little fellow and that it’s going to cause trouble for the rest of the show.
He has taken to caring for it. Blocks it from seeing violence, puts it back in its cradle to sleep, etc. One of my favorite scenes in the whole episode is when little Yoda is chasing after the lizard thing on the ground and goes to eat it and the Mandolorian yells at him to spit it out and he eats it anyway. Cracks me up.
Much to no one’s surprise, baby Yoda has the Force. Which poses the question: is it the entire species that has the Force? Or is baby Yoda literally a baby of Yoda’s? Either way, I still want 20.
Poor lil baby wipes itself out trying to save the Mando though and the Mando leaves confused, probably not recognizing the Force which is strange to me. How does he not know what it is? Do some people just have no clue the Force is a thing??
I’m excited to see where the rest of it goes, especially if he never hands in the lil Yoda like he’s supposed to. I don’t think he’s gonna hand it in. I really don’t.
That’s my thoughts for the week on that! Thanks for reading and tune in next week for the next one!
