So, last time we saw the start of Mando’s unemployment struggles. This episode is taking it a little further. So let’s dig in.
Mando may have gotten his ship fixed but now he’s running out of gass. So he hits up an old friend looking for work and gets recruited to break someone out of prison. He gets a whole cast of weirdo’s to work with but the main one is an ex-Imperial sharpshooter Migs Mayfeld. Mayfeld seems to be the boss of the mission and also seems to think he has to prove himself to everyone. He seems to hate Mando from the start. Oh and there’s a Twi’lek woman that seems to imply that her and Mando were a thing.
With his new group of misfits Mando sets off to board a prison vessel. Aside from a few security droids everything is going fine until they reach the ships command center. Then the crazy Twi kills a New Republic officer that manages to activate a locator beacon before he dies. With a time limit added to the mission the group doubles their efforts to rescue the prisoner thereafter.
The group manages to free the prisoner it’s the crazy Twi’s older brother and then they promptly shove Mando into the cell and lock him up. Something tells me this ain’t gonna end well for the others. Mado breaks free from the cell and the revenge begins. He hunts his former teammates down one by one and locks them up in the cell before taking the prisoner himself.
Mado arrives back at his old friend’s place with the prisoner in tow. His old friend doesn’t look too happy to see Mando alone either. But Mando just drops off the prisoner and leaves without doing anything to the man behind the betrayal. When Mando has left the station his old friend tells his men to kill him but the prisoner finds a device has been planted on him. It’s the locator beacon from before. Upon the discovery New Republic forces show up and begin attacking the station now that is some pro revenge.
Ah, a classic prison break along with a pro revenge story. This show hits all the right buttons for me. 2 more remaining. What kind of epic finale will we get? Come back next time to find out. I hope you’ve enjoyed this. Thanks for letting me waste your time and Keep It Classy.
