Synopsis: The battered Mandalorian returns to his client for his reward.
Review: The episode’s title lives up to its story, which is also one of redemption.
Having gotten his Bounty. The Mandalorian flys back to the planet in order to deliver the baby Yoda alien to his Client. He receives his payment in Beskar Metal but seems troubled by the fate that The Client has in store for the baby. Despite these misgivings, he heads back to the Mandalorian encampment has the weapons maker creates some new Armour for him out of the Beskar, but while there some of his fellow Mandalorians take issue with the fact that the Beskar has the Imperial Seal of the Empire engraved on it. A fight near enough breaks out but the weapons maker, who seems to be in charge settles things down.
Wanting to get as far away as possible. The Mandalorian goes back to his Bounty Hunting Guild and asks Greef Karga for more work. He accepts a new job, but as The Mandalorian begins to make ready to leave he has second thoughts about the Baby Yoda and proceeds to stage a rescue.
Pedro Pascal continues with his strong silent type delivery of Mandalorians lines and one of the best ones to come from this weeks story is, “I got to get me one of those”, which was in reference to one of his fellow Mandalorians rocket pack, which we see toward the close of the episode. I also enjoyed the various exchanges between Mandalorian and Carl Weathers as Greef Karga. I especially enjoyed the look of shock on Karga’s face when he realized that Mando had deliberately aimed for the Beskar that he had in his top pocket.
This was a great episode, which continued to channel the spaghetti western vibe that the series has been going for. I really felt bad for the baby Yoda guy when Mando left him with the client and was elated when Mandalorian started to have second thoughts and decided to launch a rescue attempt.
The fights in this were pretty good and I especially liked how Mando’s people came to the rescue when he was in a tight spot.
Overall. Lots of fun. I look forward to seeing how this will all come back to bite Mando on the butt in next week’s episode.
