'Andor': Will the show answer why Cassian turned against the Empire?
'Andor' will have to answer a string of interesting questions over the course of its two-season run. While the first three episodes gave an inkling of what to expect, there are enough questions starting off with the key character's backgrounds that the show will have to answer. The series follows the life and times of Cassian (Luna) who goes on to become the Rebellion's greatest asset before he meets a heroic end when he was just 26 on Scarif after the rebels plan to acquire the Death Star plans and hand it over to the Rebellion.
The official synopsis reads, "The Andor series will explore a new perspective from the Star Wars galaxy, focusing on Cassian Andor’s journey to discover the difference he can make. The series brings forward the tale of the burgeoning rebellion against the Empire and how people and planets became involved. It’s an era filled with danger, deception, and intrigue where Cassian will embark on the path that is destined to turn him into a rebel hero.

Why did Cassian Andor turn against the Imperial reign?
Although there is no actual reason listed as to why Cassian turned against the Empire, there will surely be more than just the fact that they were politically oppressive. Was it due to the fact that the Republic practically vanquished Kenari from the face of the galaxy? Or was there an incident from his personal life that made him hate the Republic?
This will be one of the storylines the show must answer. So far, the three episodes have shown Cassian's days before joining the Rebellion, and the troubled past he grew up in. But with nine episodes left in the season, there surely will be the answer to why he turned against the Empire.
