Yes, run my little ones, RUN. Catch the *******. Don't let him get away!

The Mandalorian must ferry a passenger with precious cargo on a risky journey.
 
Little Yoda needs driving glasses or Mando needs to get him a proper sidecar. It's just when you keep speeding across the desert landscape, it's not fine that Mando has helmet and all the sand particles get into those big eyes.

Maybe he should have shielded the little one with Boba's helmet instead of hanging it on the other side of the hoverbike. The fact it would have acted as an impact shield is there. So I'm kind of glad that Mando crashed and had to trek across the sandbox on slow pace.

Before anyone says it, yes, I have feelings for the Child. Don't want him to get hurt.

LOL. The barbecue, ever. The Child's look was the best. He was dribbling on looking that Dragon roast cooking slowly in the heat plume. Although they also gave us another hint on yodaling's species.

It is likely that Yoda's are like the frogs and other ambihiants. We know that the Child really likes eating fresh meat, like frogs. Cannibalism is known to happen and all that edible, will get eaten in the great game of one's survival. But he looked at the fish eggs as if he recognised the whole thing and it somehow made him to realise things.

So taken that Yoda went to die in a jungle planet it's all connecting together and in order to find the species, Mando really needs to narrow down the possible locations. But the thing is, he doesn't know what we know and his attention isn't always focused on what the Child does. So things we see he might not notice.

Not that daddies ever do, because we are so preoccupied with everything else. Single daddies more so. We never see what's happening until it's too late. So well done for the Child for getting an egg or three. Daddy clearly forgot to feed you. :LOL:

So Mando confirmed that Razor's Crescent is Pre-Republic piece of hardware. Not that it mattered to the New Republic patrol. I'm also glad that it can put out some speed, when it needs to. Not that it really matters to X-Wings as they just transfer more power in the engines.

Mando pulled off some serious G's in his manouvers to escape the patrol. Some that would have blacked out people in no time. The frog lady lasted only so much before she was out and couldn't care for her brood.

I find it strange that she didn't notice that a few of the eggs had gone mysteriously missing for the Frog Lady to invoke the Mandalorian Code. She could have used it as leverage instead of trusting that Mando would get serious enough of her needs.

The Star Wars universe is strange because it never really acknowledge the genocides and the lost species in the aftermath of the Emperor going nuts with the power. The people who only watch the movies don't know about the other events that happened in the Clone Wars or during the Rebels.

It's just when you really think about it, most of the stuff is shrugged and ignored by the species of SW universe. There's so much diversity that if one or two goes missing nobody notices anything.

One day they are just gone. Like the Hutt's.

Speaking of which, I am shaking my head. The Child must have worms or something for being constantly hungry. Yoda never showed this side of him, but he must have been the same back in the day.

Because of it we testified the quickest dressing in the history. The Frog Lady's garment isn't just single piece, but it went on like one when the hatchlings started to creep out in their thousands from their cocoons.

For being the only planet in the galaxy for the Frog Ladies spawns, she did a piss poor job on selecting her pond. There is no doubt in my mind that all the spawns would have been eaten.

Not that it nearly didn't happen, because it was on the cards up to the moment the New Republic patrol showed up. The also proved that unlike their opposition the rebels can shoot.
 
Frog eggs, spider larva, dragon tenders -- a growing child has got to eat. It's not like he came with a king-sized bag of Purina Yoda Chow.
Baby Yoda seems readily adaptive to whatever food sources become available. Knows what meets his nutritional needs, he does.
His guardian might want to rethink that "where I go, he goes" thing. Escaping the ambush crash unharmed was a miracle I would not expect to see in the real world.
This was another episode strongly reminiscent of the first three films, and I still don't have a problem with that. The Force is strong in this series.

Me neither!

I have no questions this week, some people will be happy to know, however...

You both think the Child wanted to eat the Frog eggs, or is even a cannibal!!! Shocking! I saw it quite differently. Frog Lady didn't notice any eggs missing. Are you sure that there any eggs missing? Mando asked him how many he had taken, because he didn't know either. You could clearly see the Child still had at least one inside his mouth. He only put one in his mouth at a time...
...he looked at the fish eggs as if he recognised the whole thing and it somehow made him to realise things.
Exactly! The Child is still learning about the world around him and about the extent of his own powers. The eggs were getting cold and they need to be fertilised soon. The Force was strong in the eggs.

I know that you two may have never seen anything to make you believe that there's one all-powerful force controlling everything, or that there's a mystical energy field that controls your own destiny. However, I believe that the Child was warming the eggs up in his mouth, protecting and strengthening them with power of the Force, and using the Force to examine them. No eggs were harmed in the making of this TV show!

I admit that I had forgotten the spiders in the Chopper Base and frankly, it's kind of strange that the episode concept art shows them quite different. Maybe Disney decided to use Rebels 3D models instead of making them more like the ones in the concept art.

I cannot understand why, because they made sure to change the details in the abdomen, even upgrade details in the cephalothorax. They could have easily made the strange eyed one with same money.

 
Well here we are again. I had a few issues (which obviously it would be churlish to speculate on. As you now know such nonsense is below me)

I did wonder who owns the Alien rights, because as soon as I saw the spider eggs (pre spider appearing) I thought surely they're not going to rip off...

But yes they did...

As for the watchability - still OK with it for now, but pretty soon I'll need a trip to the dentist to replace my ground away dentures.

Agreed! 'Twas egregious. I had exactly the same thoughts. Even my partner who will not even come into the room if I'm watching a horror said 'is it Alien?' I also thought it a strange play to have two monster episodes in two successive eps.
 
But, I have to say I thought this was a weak episode. Both of the escapes were really too unlikely, the last one certainly, and there was no plot development. My best guess is that this was an episode where we are introduced to someone or something who will be much more significant in episodes to come. Frog lady? --- X wing police? Baby Yoda's insatiable hunger?
 
So, just to clarify my @Dave like ignorance.

Are we to assume (or is it indeed the case) that this cuddly toy is in fact the Yoda of the original trilogy?

Rather than some other felt covered member of Genus Gramatica
 
Yes, not unless there is time travel involved, but where exactly is this set? Is it before or following the last trilogy with Rey?

Nothing has ever been disclosed about Yoda's species before (except a liking for swamps) so it's really a blank canvas.
