'The Mandalorian' Season 2 Episode 2: Will Mando's search for Mandalorians do better a second time around?
Mando's first attempt to find a Mandalorian turned out to be a bust, but there are still more Mandalorians hiding through the galaxy
The Mandalorian (Pedro Pascal) may have accomplished a lot in the season premiere with the vanquishing of a Krayt Dragon, but he's no closer to completing his own personal mission to locate more Mandalorians to guide him on his path. He still needs to find out where Baby Yoda's mysterious species might be hidden, but in the meanwhile, he still needs to make money to keep the two of them funded, fed and fueled.
With trademark vagueness, the official synopsis for the next episode reads, "The Mandalorian must ferry a passenger with precious cargo on a risky journey." The stranger could be pretty much anyone, guarding anything, but given how Season 2 of 'The Mandalorian' appears to be diving deeper into expanded 'Star Wars' lore, this episode might just introduce cargo that ties into storylines connected to the larger 'Star Wars' galaxy. Also, given that the passenger is hiring the Mandalorian's services, it's unlikely that the journey is going to be smooth sailing - if there's precious cargo, someone's going to be gunning for it.
This unnamed passenger isn't the only one with precious cargo, however. The Mandalorian himself is carrying the Child around with him, who is still sought out by the last remnants of the Empire, led by Moff Gideon (Giancarlo Esposito), and he's on the run from them. As of the last episode, the Mandalorian is also in possession of Boba Fett's armor and a last-scene cameo from Temuera Morrison last episode might just mean that Boba Fett himself is going to be coming for the Razorcrest.
The Mandalorian's got a mission to fulfill, in the meanwhile - finding other Mandalorians. His first attempt was a bust, despite searching the galaxy for any rumor he could find about the appearance of one. Given that former Mandalorian leader Bo-Katan Kryze (Katee Sackhoff) is expected to appear this season, the next episode of the Mandalorian might lead him to clues as to her whereabouts, which is good news for all fans of 'The Clone Wars'. Of course, given the Mandalorian's growing reputation, it's entirely possible that she's on the lookout for him, instead.
This episode of 'The Mandalorian' airs on November 6, on Disney+.
