The Mandalorian Season 2 has Star Wars Fans Worried about Korkie Kryze
Nov 17 2020
The Star Wars project is being directed by series creator Jon Favreau, executive producer Dave Filoni and fellow season one directors Rick Famuyiwa and Bryce Dallas Howard.
On this week's Mandalorian, Mando actually finds more Mandalorians - and not just any old Mandalorians but Bo-Katan Kryze, one of the most important Mandaloriancharacters in all of Star Wars, and a fixture on the animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars.
While it was confirmed back in May that Katie Sackhoff was slated to appear this season as the Bo-Katan, fans were left to speculate when and how the character would be introduced.
The episode doesn't go into how Moff Gideon came into possession of this fabled weapon, as seen in Chapter 8.
Katie Sackoff, of Battlestar Galactica fame, is no stranger to Bo-Katan. Episodes like this peel off some of the layers to unravel the vast scale of Star Wars storytelling built across various shows and books.
"The Heiress" was a very well done episode with great direction from Howard and a nice balance of character moments and action.
The Empire's purge of the Jedi eliminates her from electricity, so that she and her staff, the Nite Owls, eventually become anti-Imperial fighters.
In addition to appearing in the episode, Bo-Katan also namedrops Ahsoka Tano. However, "Chapter 11 - The Heiress" begins to open a whole new dimension to the Star Wars mythology, delving into "Star Wars: The Clone Wars" with the introduction of Bo-Katan of the Clan Kryze.
I do try to keep these reviews as spoiler-free as possible, but I really do have to let one thing slip in order to explain why I loved this episode so much.
Din leaves the Razor Crest with a Mon Calamari dock worker for repairs and Frog Lady is reunited with her husband.
Current WWE SmackDown Women's Champion Sasha Banks made her long-awaited appearance in The Mandalorian on last night's episode. However there are plenty of other shenanigans going on in the galaxy and Mando once again ends up bartered into helping out.
An alien approaches Mando and says he can bring him to the Mandalorians-For a price. They're extreme enough to purposefully crash a ship rather than allow Mandalorians to steal their weapons, and intense enough to bite down on their own version of a cyanide pill, but with a more electrical end.
Baby Yoda is swallowed up by an eel monster and Mando dives in to save him.
The only criticism I have is that this episode was too short. But unlike Mando, they have no qualms about removing their helmets. "You know what I'm talking about".
The most recent two episodes of The Mandalorian may not have given us much in the way of additional information about Baby Yoda, with Mando getting repeatedly drawn into side-quests involving sub-light-speed detours and Katee Sackhoff, but they did deliver a running joke that built on the little green scamp's penchant for eating everything in sight.
