Podcast Stardust #196: The Mandalorian – Chapter 16 – The Rescue

by Podcast Stardust

The final episode of season two of The Mandalorian brought great action, suspense, and surprises as Din Djarin leads the rescue of Grogu.

After seven incredible episodes of The Mandalorian in season two, the season finale is here. Din Djarin has gathered his allies for a desperate rescue attempt. Moff Gideon has Grogu on his cruiser. In addition, Moff Gideon has something others in the galaxy want. But, Din just wants the Child back. The season finale is an explosive episode of The Mandalorian, and we had a great time discussing it. Thanks for joining us for our coverage of season two.

On this fully armed and operational episode we discuss:

  • The Imperial pilot labelling the Rebellion as “terrorists,”
  • The recruitment of the Nite Owls for the rescue mission,
  • Din Djarin’s showdown with Moff Gideon,
  • Bo-Katan’s mission through the cruiser with her strike team,
  • The dilemma created by Din Djarin defeating Moff Gideon,
  • How imposing the Dark Troopers were,
  • The surprise appearance at the end of the episode,
  • Din Djarin’s farewell to Grogu, and
  • The surprise post credit scene.
