In episode 2, he’s out for blood. You can read my review of the season premiere here. Along the way he’s ambushed by more of the aliens he fought last week, but he dispatches them fairly quickly. Pedro Pascal displays that particular Star Wars magic that makes acting in a mask alongside a puppet-like alien look easy. I can’t handle how adorable this little guy is. The Mandalorian: The Best Aliens, Weapons and Tech62 IMAGES. But watching the Mandalorian attempting to protect this strange, vulnerable child is also designed to disarm us. (Although if those aspects of the Star Wars mythos drive you crazy, it’s entirely possible The Mandalorian has just lost all of your goodwill. The Mandalorian showed some moral ambiguity in the first episode: fond of children and unwilling to kill the baby, he blows a hole in the head of his ally-of-convenience, IG-11.

The final battle achieves showrunner Jon Favreau’s vision of the show feeling like a high-budget version of playing in a toy chest. But the odd-couple pairing also has echoes of classic Westerns like The Searchers and True Grit (or, for a deeper cut, John Ford’s 3 Godfathers), juxtaposing our impassive hero with a more innocent character who’s designed to slip under his guard. All Rights Reserved, This is a BETA experience. We’ve seen some of this exact choreography in Attack of the Clones — Mando being dragged by the mud horn evokes memories of Obi-Wan battling the reek.
