But at the same time, the purge we see isn't being enacted by the Empire (or the Republic, for that matter). Seems everyone wanted a piece of the Mandos.

And I want to know where that purge falls in the timeline compared to the Mando civil war that took place towards the end of the Clone Wars (the one where Maul was involved). We're going to see that in the upcoming season of Clone Wars, but that battle isn't the one we saw with the Super Battle Droids and the Droid Gunship flying overhead in this episode.

Not sure where it all fits.


I doubt the writers of the show know to be honest I get the feeling the is a fair bit of winging it with this show.

Your last point is especially laughable and comical, because not only the 7th ed Valkyrie shown dumber things (like being able to throw the troopers without parachutes out of its hatches, no harm done) - Irbis

SW needs a Kevin Fiege type. Someone who is keeping the narrative straight and planning the time line. KK isn't really that person. Shes arguably the position over him approving or disapproving each step and element. They need a creative type who can map all this crap out and keep the narrative flow straight.

There is no reason to go into 7,8,9 knowing you are writing one story and then write each piece of that story separately AFTER each movie is released. They should have known the whole story before 7 started filming. Not figured it out as they went.


These are my opinions. This is how I feel. Others may feel differently. This needs to be stated for some reason.

the guy running the show is Filoni, who also was the show running of SW rebels and SW clone wars. I suspect he's got a general story map in his head given he's the guy whose pretty much handled Mandalorians in canon

There are already at least three Black Series toys of just the main Mando!

Loved the third episode, so awesome. Really going from strength to strength which makes reading people saying that SW is doomed on various film threads quiet amusing.
Wonder if FFG can get the go ahead to do an entire Mandalorian faction for Legion.

I'm the first to admit that this is actually a pretty good month for Star Wars with Mando and Fallen Order but the previous entries have been TLJ, Solo, and the theme park additions. I'm not sure it's fair to call that series going from strength to strength...

2) Because the Empire didn't want a potential threat to their hegemony. The Mandalorians might not be traditional "good guys", but they actually have a moral code and are legendary warriors. So they'd definitely be a target.

I get the feeling that "foundlings" are less people adopted into Mandalorian culture and more recovered Mandalorians from Purge. But a Beskar helmet is core to their culture so for a Foundling to come back to the tribe they need to be able to give them a helmet.

Clans, in the general historical context, are usually made up of several families that are all related to each other by either marriage or blood. A "Foundling" is probably someone who is adopted into the Clan as opposed to born/married into it. Mandalorians have probably become forced to rely on adoption to keep their numbers up. Though they might focus on getting any actual Mandalorians they can if they have the opportunity.

I’ll maintain he is amazing at First Person Shooters but horrible at Monster Hunter.

I’ll also forgive him for the Jawas due to their heavily fortified yet mobile position. He actually did pretty well there all things considered.

Assuming the big fella is the "Paz Viszla" credited in this EP, its not. Most of the Clan arent credited, only him and "The Smith" (which I think we can all identify).

They’re all Smith. It’s a very common Mandolorian name.

I think the comment from Bigger Fett about the titular character being a coward is more than just being a rookie. And its all dependent about on if/when they take his helmet off, but the dude playing Mando(Pedro Pascal, 44) doesn't strike me as having the look of a rookie, though I guess it all depends on the "path of the mandalore" and the age at which one chooses to start that path. I know feth all about Mandalorians outside of the KotOR games from years ago.

The Empire would have attempted to wipe out the Mandalorian after they rebelled against their rule as seen in the last two seasons of Star Wars Rebels. While the show focused on the birth of the rebellion it did end with the mention that the Empire would return shortly to crush them.

As for the big robot thing, they look like good old Confederate droids of the Clone War. The Mandalorian was "adopted" into the clan. It stands to reason that his homeworld was destroyed during the Clone War and that he was rescued by Mandalorian fleeing their world during Maul's takeover or even during the pacifists reign who exiled the more hardcore traditionalist and warmongering Mandalorian like the Deathwatch.

One thing I'm more and more impressed by with each episode is Pedro's capacity to convey emotion without a visible face. Even seemingly simple stuff like the manner in which he walks changes depending on the mood of the character. Physical acting in the era of CGI is far too often an overlooked skill, but in this situation its absolutely critical, and he makes it look so damn easy.

It's helped by clever camera work, but yes, he's impressively expressive.

IIRC, he was much the same in got, so it's not a lucky hit for him.

I get the impression his family/town was wiped out during the Clone Wars and we'll see that the Mandolarians save him. At which point he will be brought into the clan. Sometime later the Empire, which probably used Mandolarians up to that point, turn on the Mandos and massacre them (The Purge). I don't think the bit with the Super Battle Droid is The Purge, just something during The Clone Wars.

My girl Gina Carano better be in the next episode, or I’ll call the police. Figured we’d have seen her by now, given that she’s in the banner for the show.

Looking forward to Bill Burr’s appearance too. That dude used to make fun of Star Wars so much and once he got a wiff of that Disney money, he had a ‘Come to Mickey’ moment. I have a feeling he’ll be a memorable character.

I figure the same, that said we know a bit about the mandos in the rebellion era due to SW Rebels. we can assume the purge was after the events of rebels in response to the Mandalorian uprising.

BTW the super battledroid looked amazing as what appeared to be practical effects touched up with CGI. I almost didn't recognize what it was because it looked so good over the shiny cgi garbage of the prequels.

She's credited in 4 of 8 episodes per IMDB, so odds are good she'll be making her entrance shortly. IG-11 otoh only seems to pop up in that first episode, so make of that what you will.
