A prototype IG-88. IG-11 didn't even receive the full production treatment. So, I wouldn't call him a super battle droid, a proto assassin droid perhaps.the hand of the super battle droid.
Mando has the battle pram. Load it up with mining charges, send it out and let it clear the square. No need for IG-11. The DeathTroopers and New Order boys could had positioned themselves better, because at the moment they are in the kill-zone.How will IG-11 save the Yoda baby and/or the Mandalorian in episode 8?
Well, yeah, that is there, but that is not the story. Mando is not giving up on the Child that easily. They could try to escape back way or go to tunnels. This is not the end. Remember, New Order has positioned themselves really stupidly. Cara should have been wooping for them making a mistake instead of worrying about their survival.It did feel a little trite, "the child has been kidnapped, our hero is surrounded by an overwhelming force, and his friends might not be trustworthy."
Oh, I agree entirely. But that was exactly my point in cliff hangers of the trite sort there seems to be no way out, but you know the hero will prevail, it is only a question of when and how. But .... this might be the set up for the next season, Mando escapes and he (along with Cara Dune?) go hunting the child down. ----Well, yeah, that is there, but that is not the story.

I get that we have to write in tension and leave it over the Christmas, but I am not afraid for Mando or the Child. Disney is not going to kill them off. Although killing the Child would surely raise the audience tension over the roof.
I think her role is sort of becoming series regular. They need more than Mando and The Child, and this was first episode where they are trying to form a band of brother... or rather a posse to honour the Western theme. Frankly, they cannot keep writing these escape stories forever, as we talked about it in the last episode, because the risk is it becoming the escape-of-the-week and I don't Disney wants that.Continuing also's .... I can't help but thing that Cara Dune is some sort of homage to the Dune franchise, but could it be a hint of sorts?
I could be wrong but I just don't see Disney planning both a TV series and the release of the last episode from the Saga simultaneously and not connecting the two in some way. So... Have you seen Episode IX? I'll post some spoilers for the movie below:It's a good boost for the New Order over all reputation as the antagonist. The role of the Child in it can only mean that they are seeking to place it in same place as the Emperor.
Interesting. Maybe I'll have to go to see the film then. The saga story is then more about Palpatine than it ever was about the Skywalkers. But it is not the first time Emperor has demonstrated the life transfer power as it was shown briefly in the Clone Wars -- if I remember correctly. If you include the bits about the Force Space/Dimension, then the Dark Side comes very clear. I hope he's dead now!Snoke is a creation of Palpatine and he has several more Snokes in store (clones). Palpatine is also in a somewhat weakened state but he has the ability to rejuvenate by sucking energy out of Force sensitive beings - a power he demonstrates in the last film.
