Dave Filoni – The Jedi: Mandalorian Ep 5 Season 2

Image of Ahsoka Tano from a Rolling Stone Magazine article by Allan Sepinwall

Dave Filoni writes and directs The Jedi, episode five in season two of the Mandalorian.

We got a view of Ahsoka Tano in The Heiress and here the viewer gets to see her as a bad-ass Jedi fighter.

I am familiar with Ahsoka Tano from two Youtubers I watch John Campea and Key Issues with Nick and Garrick. She took part in the Clone Wars and trained under Anakin Skywalker. The episode, Jedi. is the first time I really get to see in her in action except for video clips from Clone Wars.

I do appreciate another Star Wars character being brought to the show. However, I would like to hear more about this Jedi than you can find her here and she will answer your questions about the Child.

For instance, we learn about Grogu aka the Child. For years he got training from Jedi at Coruscant, a Jedi Temple, until someone hid him to prevent his death when Palpatine’s troops attacked. As a result of seeing his fellow Jedi die, Grogu keeps his show of his powers to a minimum out of fear he could be next.

Now why can’t a viewer get the same background for Ahsoka Tano or Bo Katan or the bad guy Grand Admiral Thrawn?’ Instead these characters in the Star Wars universe get very little introduction.

I know something about them but what about another viewer who does not? Why deprive them of getting to know this character, like Ahsoka Tano, when he or she shows up in the flesh.

Otherwise why should I care for this character the same way another viewer with deep knowledge of this character does?

The Heiress: Mandalorian Chapter 11

The Heiress: Chapter 11 of Mandalorian S2 Image from imdb.com

In the episode the Heiress the Frog Lady reaches her destination and reunites with her husband. Next he lets Mando know how he can locate other Mandalorian. So while workers try to to make his ship able to fly again, he takes to an ocean vessel to head to the location told to him.

However, the trip does not go as he expects it to. A member of the Quarren crew kicks the Child into the ocean while the other crew members try to drown Mando so they can steel his armor.

Luckily other Mandalorians fly to his rescue and save both Mando and the Child’s life. However, Mando’s happiness at meeting others of his kind does not last. When he sees them remove their helmets, Mando wonders if they are like Cobb Vanth so he demands to know how long the other Mandalorians have had their armor.

The leader of the group Bo-Katan informs him the armor she wears has been in her family for generations and not all factions of Mandalorians are the same. In fact, she tells Mando the one he belongs to are religious zealots.

As much as this stings his feelings, Mando pushes it aside to continue his goal to take the Child to his people. But before he can gain more information from Bo-Katan and the others, Mando must help them take an Imperial ship including all its contents.

The episode is enjoyable and I look forward to the show exploring the impact of what Bo-Katan told Mando. Will he feel lost? Angry? In denial? Will he be able to continue his mission to find the Child’s home or alter his plans?
