No matter how much I look at the little green man Grogo, it won’t be enough. Every grunt, coo and spittle evokes the urge to crush a tiny piece. Grogo expands his repertoire to a graceful cartwheel-type jump even as he sharpens his navigation skills.
After the events of The Book of Boba FettThe third season of The Mandalorian Dean Jarrin (Pedro Pascal) finds himself discussing his sins (he voluntarily removed his helmet) with The Armorer (Emily Swallow). The first episode, called “The Apostate”, sees Dejarin heading to the ruined planet of Mandalore and diving into the sacred waters of a body of water that may or may not exist there.
The Mandalorian Season 3 (English)
the creator: Jon Favreau
The cast: Pedro Pascal, Katie Sackhoff, Carl Weathers, Emily Swallow, Amy Sedaris, Taika Waititi
Episodes: 2 of 8
Run time: 35 to 42 minutes
The story line: Deen Jarin travels to Mandalore with his little friend for redemption.
The search begins and he ends up with a laughing Grogo for company. Djarin first heads to Nevarro to meet with former bounty hunter guild chief Greef Karga (Carl Weathers) who is now revered as the planet’s High Magistrate. Incidentally, fellow tenant Cara Dion (Gina Carano) has been written out of the show thanks to Carano’s controversial social media posts.
Djarin comes to Navarro in search of IG-11 (Taika Waititi), the hunter droid reprogrammed to care for Grogu, or The Child as he was then known. Karga tells Jarrin that it’s no use since IG-11 isn’t able to go on a do-or-die mission after his time in the molten lava river.
The droid is now a statue in the bustling town square, towering over the battered helmets of the Storm Troopers. Djarin tries to restore IG-11 but shuts it down as it reverts to factory settings and follows Djarin and Grogu. IG-11’s programming needs a critical component to get right and Djarin heads off to meet mechanic Peli Motto (Amy Sedaris) in the most happening of places, Tatooine.
Grogo is straight into the arms of Paley, who convinces Jarin that R5-D4, a neurotic droid, would be a better bet than trying to revive IG-11. He has kind words to say about Djarin’s new ship, the Naboo Starfighter, “She cleans like a nuzzle shrew.”
Jarrin then visits the former ruler of Mandalore, Bo-Katan (Katie Sackhoff), who tells her how to reach the mines that contain water that will cleanse Jarrin and give him faith once again. will enable to be a part of . If Djarin spends all his time going from point A to point B and on down to C, D and Z, well The Way innit? In the first episode, Jarrin is given his mission and through eight episodes, completes it with the help or hindrance of all sorts of beings and creatures.
There are cute creatures, including a giant crocodile-like thing and an automaton made from several pieces of junk with a glowing eye. Djarin teaches Grogo some The Way as Grogo is eating small berries (thankfully the frog eggs are not endangered).
As expected the action is fast and furious, with pirates and random lowlifes getting their just deserts. “The Mines of Mandalore”, the second episode stopped at an expected cliffhanger. And with the terrifying Moff Gideon (Giancarlo Esposito) and Dr. Pershing (Omid Abtahi) yet to make their appearance, there’s plenty more to see in the further adventures of our favorite besker-armored gunslinger and his Force-sensitive little sidekick.
