Podcast Stardust #43: The Mandalorian Chapter 8 – Redemption

by Podcast Stardust

It is the season finale of The Mandalorian. On this episode, we discuss the latest reveals, the conclusion with Moff Gideon, and that moment with the Child.

The first season of The Mandalorian has concluded with Chapter 8 – Redemption. This episode is full of reveals ranging from the details of the Mandalorian’s past, the fate of the Mandalorians in the covert, and a big surprise at the end of the episodes. We discuss the details, including a rather uncomfortable moment, as we review the latest episode.

On this fully armed and operational episode of Podcast Stardust, we discuss:

  • The opening scene with the scout troopers,
  • IG-11’s rescue scene and sacrifice,
  • IG-11’s meaning to the Mandalorian,
  • The reveal of the Mandalorian’s identity,
  • The fate of the Mandalorians in the covert,
  • The Armorer’s mandate for the Mandalorian, and
  • The final confrontation with the Empire.
