So far, this season of The Mandalorian has been, to say the least, a big letdown for most people. Even though Episodes 2, 4, and 7 were good, the rest were either average or bad. We didn’t think The Mandalorian would be bad, but Episode 6 was the worst of the series so far. Anyway, I’m happy to tell you that Episode 8 is one of the best episodes of The Mandalorian ever made.
The Mandalorian Season 3 Episode 8 Recap
The Season 3 end of The Mandalorian did what the rest of the season didn’t do: it found a balance. Din Djarin and Grogu have felt like side characters with not much to do for the whole season. This episode changes that. It gives each of the main characters, Bo-Katan, Din, Grogu, and the Armorer, a chance to shine at different points in the show.
It was able to tie together everything that happened during the season and give a pretty good ending to almost every plot point and character arc. Aside from that, one of the best things about this show was how beautiful it looked and how full of action it was.
From the beginning, which was badass and full of action, it was clear that this show wasn’t a joke and was here to make a mark. Din and Grogu are trying to get inside the base with the help of R5, while Bo-Katan and her army are fighting for Mandalore outside.
The scene where Armorer and Bo-Katan (holding the Dark Saber) lead the flying Mandalorian army to Gideon’s base gives us chills and takes us back to the great days of Star Wars. Also, Din’s fights with Beskar wearing Stormtroopers and the Praetorian Guards (Red Beskar Armor Troopers) were very well planned and finally gave Din a chance to shine.
Grogu and Armorer also had some badass moments, so Bo and Din weren’t the only ones who stood out. Armorer won all of the battles that took place in the air, and I couldn’t take my eyes off of her during those battles. Grogu finally got what he deserved because the help he gave Din and Bo throughout the show was so great.
“You did good, kid!” he said in a serious tone, and in the last seconds of the battle, he saved Din and Bo from the huge explosion to show that he was a master of the Force. Moff Gideon once again showed that he was a good Star Wars bad guy when he beat Din and Bo Katan in one-on-one fights and destroyed the Dark Saber. To kill him, it took two of the best Mandalorians, a half-Jedi, and a Star Destroyer that crashed. What a real leader!
Still, the ending was pretty happy and Pixar-like, since everything worked out nicely and no heroes died. Then there was a cheesy re-start of the Forge scene, where everyone yelled “For Mandalore” while Bo-Katan stood tall. The rite where Ragnar became a Mandalorian and Din officially adopted Grogu was pretty cool though.
Now, Din’s creed says that he has to take Grogu on new experiences and train him as an apprentice. Let’s hope that Season 4 is more about them than about anyone else. So, the Mythosaur, which was one of the most interesting side stories of this season, didn’t live up to its promise. The Mythosaur wakes up in a short scene right after Grogu joins the creed, but that’s all we got this season.
This new age of Mandalore was a sign of how Mythosaur woke up, and that was pretty much it. We thought this legendary creature would be more interesting, and we’re sure it will be a big part of Season 4 of The Mandalorian, which is already being made. In the end, IG-11 is rebuilt, which wasn’t really necessary, and Din chooses to help the new republic in an indirect way. Din is also offered a place to live at Nevarro, which he gladly accepts as a place to rest before his next journey.
When it comes to the technical side of things, the VFX, cinematography, and production design were nothing short of perfect, and the opening credits of this show made me think, “It’s gonna be epic” right away. And the action, oh my god, the action in this episode was some of the best battles and hand-to-hand fights we’ve ever seen in a Star Wars show.
The Mandalorian Season 3 Episode 8 Ending Explained
The brave Mandalorians are ready to go back to their home planet, as the name of the show suggests. “The Return” is coming up, so get ready. By the end of Episode 8, we will see how Din Djarin, Grogu, and Bo-Katan Kryze beat Moff Gideon. If you’ve been watching the series from the start, you already know that Moff Gideon is very strong.
Even Din Djarin couldn’t deal with him on his own. At the same time, we will see how Grogu tries to fight with Gideon’s three main fighters on his own. But just as Din Djarin and Grogu were getting worried, Bo-Katan Kryze came to their aid, and Djarin was able to save his child.
On the other hand, Axe Woves made it through the sweltering plane! He breaks through the jet’s window, causing the huge spaceship to crash into the base camp. All of Gideon’s bad ideas are destroyed by this. At the end of Season 3, we’ll see how Ragnar finally joins the Mandalorian army as a full-fledged soldier.
Again, Din Djarin chooses to adopt Grogu! He is no longer a foundling and is now a student. His new name is Din Grogu. The Mandalorians are back together and ready to rebuild their home. At the end of this show, Din Djarin will try to get in touch with Carson Teva.
