It may have been a standalone chapter, but 'Andor'Episode 7 had all the elements that make it a must-watch show from the decorated franchise. Little did anyone expect a spin-off that focuses on a rebel officer and the birth of the Rebellion to tie so many events together, but it does so and succeeds at that.

Titled 'Announcement', Episode 7 sees Diego Luna's Cassian return to Ferrix, but is quickly thrust into the scene where he faces the aftermath of his actions in Aldhani. While he hopes for a better future for Maarva (Fiona Shaw), the movie sees the decisive woman stay back and take on the Empire. Bix Caleen (Adria Arjona) returns to the series after missing out in the last three episodes.
