'Andor' Episode 5 may have been another slow-burn chapter, but Star Wars aficionados get the logic behind the pacing. While most expected a mission-ready rebel team that now included Cassian Andor (Diego Luna) to grab the Imperial's quarterly payroll, it wasn't to be as the series still ample light on their preparation. While some fans it was a slow off the blocks, some lavished praise on the gripping narrative.

"Oh what the hell. #Andor leaves us hanging until next week for everything it's been building up to with all the chess pieces! I'm loving how not modern Star Wars feeling this is and all the character development and conversions," a fan lamented. "I understand not everyone is gonna like this episode, but the tensity between the characters not trusting each other and Andor trusting no one is interesting it’s definitely a slow burn and build up #Andor #StarWars," one of the fans opined.

"This episode of #Andor set up so much for what’s coming, but at the same time it was massively character driven. There was lots of terrific dialogue that brought me in even more. It was about where everyone stands and why. What are you in this for?," a tweet said. "andor spoilers - - - - - - This show asks the bold question: what if a men could show emotion and talk about his trauma," a fan remarked.
