Chapter 13 – “The Jedi”
Mando and the child head to a planet to learn more of his origins. A cruel magistrate offers Mando a pure beskar spear if he will kill a Jedi threatening her fierce power grip over the townspeople. Mando and Baby Yoda find the Jedi, who can speak to the Child. The Jedi tells us Baby Yoda’s name. Instead of killing the Jedi, Mando takes a different path.
You’ll have to watch to learn Baby Yoda’s name — or have it spoiled in a review or news article online, but, minor spoiler, it sounds a little too much like “Google” to me.
I’ve been itching to learn more about The Child’s origins and this episode gives us more than a minor teaser. It’s also fun seeing a Jedi wielding a light saber. The mini mission for Mando is entertaining, albeit a little slow compared to other episodes. All in all, another solid episode.
