The most romantic ones remain in the crowd for the redemption of Bo-Katan – whose past is “irregular” – for the formation of the unconventional family with Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal) and Grogu in The Mandalorian. And in an action-rich episode, it’s the princess who takes the lead, demonstrating that her conversion to her people’s more radical ways is real.
In the fourth episode, Grogu and Bo-Katan follow closely and train with the Sons of the Watch, but it is a surprise attack that presents the test for her. Just as she saved Din without batting an eyelid, Bo leads the rescue of a kidnapped youth, genuinely achieving prestige in the group. It not only returned to belonging but to having a strategic role. Grogu gains a shield, but sadly recalls how she survived Order 66.
We don’t know anyone from the last episode, not even Dr. Pershing or Elia Kane or even Moff Gideon. It’s the way The Mandalorian‘s storytelling, at some point, works. Now that Din has achieved his goal and we are halfway through the season, it should be his partners who gain prominence. Unsurprisingly, Bo-Katan plans to return to Mandalore to assemble Mythosaurus. With four more episodes, we will see if the princess has indeed changed. For now, Din and Grogu owe her. To see how you will collect the debt.
