Podcast Stardust #175: The Mandalorian – Chapter 9 – The Marshal

by Podcast Stardust

Season two of The Mandalorian begins with a trip to Tatooine and an adventure with Tuskens and a marshal wearing familiar armor.

It is the season debut of The Mandalorian. Having been tasked with returning the Child to the Jedi, the Mandalorian begins his quest. His plan is to seek guidance from other Mandalorians, but he doesn’t know where to find them. After getting a lead on where he might find one, he heads to Tatooine. Along the way, he ends up assisting in the hunt of a Krayt dragon.

On this fully armed and operational episode, we discuss:

  • The value and rarity of beskar,
  • The Mandalorian’s return to Mos Eisley,
  • The introduction of Cobb Vanth to The Mandalorian,
  • The appearance and ferocity of the krayt dragon,
  • How Tuskens were portrayed in this episode,
  • The limited role of the Child,
  • The music, and
  • The cameo as the episode concludes.
