Spoilers for last week’s Disney+ The Mandalorian Chapter 11: The Heiress!
Finally, three episodes in on season 2 of The Mandalorian, we return to some serious Star Wars mythology following two standalone adventures for Mando. We finally get to meet –in the flesh, as opposed to her animated self– Clone Wars’ Bo-Katan (Katee Sackhoff), and she brought along some friends, fellow Mandalorians Koska Reeves (Mercedes Varnado) and Axe Woves (Simon Kassianides). Mando was looking for “others who look like” him and, well, they found him. He needed to find them as they could provide guidance to a Jedi where the Child (Baby Yoda for those not in the know) should be delivered to.
After being double crossed on a sail barge run by the Quarren (Squid Head people), Mando is saved by the Clone Wars trio. Bo-Katan (who keeps taking her helmet off unlike our Mando who refuses to do so per his creed) gives a lesson in Mandalore to our warrior (who exclaims that his newfound friends aren’t Mandalorians) explaining that she’s part of Clan Kryze, while Mando is a Child of the Watch, a religious zealot sect of the Mandalorians who broke away from their people and seek to re-establish ancient ways.
By episode’s end, Mando has fulfilled his obligation to Bo-Katan, and she finally tells him where he can find the Jedi he’s looking for: on Caloden on the forest planet of Corvus, and her name is — drum roll — Ahsoka Tano, the fan fave Jedi from Clone Wars who we know is being played by Rosario Dawson this season.
