Official description[edit | edit source]

The Mandalorian journeys to a world ruled by a cruel magistrate who has made a powerful enemy.

Plot summary[edit | edit source]

Prologue[edit | edit source]

The episode opens with mercenaries sounding the alarm at the gate of Calodan on the planet Corvus. The former Jedi Ahsoka Tano battles mercenaries wielding her dual white lightsabers outside the city, uses the Force to snap a twig, distracting them as she emerges and fades into the mist, taking multiple hostiles down while they retreat. She confronts Morgan Elsbeth, also known as The Magistrate, and demands her to give up the information she possess, later known to be the whereabouts of Grand Admiral Thrawn. The Magistrate refused and offers to spare the lives of the city's inhabitants in exchange for peace, where Ahsoka retorts that she does not have a choice.

The landing[edit | edit source]

Din Djarin prepares for landing as the Razor Crest exits hyperspace and arrives at Corvus. He asks the Child to settle back into his seat as he is starting the landing sequence. The Child reluctantly listens and reaches into the Force to unscrew the joystick ball, summoning it into his hands. The Razor Crest cruises over the city and lands in the nearby woods. Djarin retrieves the joystick ball and slips it under his armour.

The offer[edit | edit source]

Djarin arrives at the city gate with the Child hidden under his cloak, Lang recognises him as a Mandalorian hunter and allows him to enter the city. Djarin attempts to ask the inhabitants of the city about the Jedi he was seeking for, whom they refuse to reveal any information in fear. A few mercenaries arrive as Djarin approaches Wing, who summons Djarin on behalf of the Magistrate. Multiple inhabitants are seen tortured on electrocution cages on the main street, he is lead to the villa of the Magistrate where she offered him a deal. Djarin replies that his price is high, and was offered a beskar spear, which he rings against his armor. He validated its genuineness as pure beskar from the reverberation, "accepting" the deal to eliminate Ahsoka Tano while his true intention was to deliver the Child to her care.

The encounter[edit | edit source]

Djarin journeys deep into the woods according to the coordinates provided by the Magistrate in search of Tano, examing trails through his helmet visor. He places the Child on a rock and looks around with his rifle scope upon hearing a snapping sound, then deciding that it was a false alarm after seeing the indigenous beasts afar. The ignition sound of a lightsaber caught him in surprise as Tano slashes at him from above. Djarin blocks the lightsaber strikes with his Mandalorian vambraces, forcing Ahsoka to fall back by igniting his wrist-mounted flamethrowers, proceeding to briefly trap her with his fibercord whips. Tano escapes by utilising a force jump, flinging Djarin midair using a branch as a pulley and forces him to detach the wire, freeing herself. Djarin lands onto the ground and draws his blaster. He informs Tano that he was sent by Bo-Katan Kryze, effectively ending the brief duel, Tano sees the Child and is seen to be both surprised and delighted.

The revelation[edit | edit source]

Tano communicates to the Child through the Force and made important discoveries on his past. She reveals to Djarin that the name of the Child was Grogu, who was raised in the Jedi Temple on Coruscant as a Jedi Initiate before the Clone Wars, and trained by many Jedi Masters on the ways of the Force. He was taken from the Temple and hidden from The Empire for many years, and his memories during these times are dark and filled with fear. She inquires Djarin on the abilities of Grogu and explained to him the nature of the Force as an energy field between all living things. Tano also laments that she had only met one such being of this species, Jedi Grand Master Yoda. She expresses her concern on the fear in Grogu, as it is the path to the dark side of the Force.

The test[edit | edit source]

Tano picks up a stone and lifts it into air with the Force, passing it to Grogu. However, Grogu refuses to pass it back as Tano asked. Djarin comments that he is stubborn, while Tano suggest him to take her place. Grogu initially refuses to demonstrate his powers, but reaches into the Force to retrieve the joystick ball from Djarin after he calls him by his name. Tano comments that he is hiding his powers for survival, and has formed a strong attachment with Djarin. She fears that his attachment will lead him down a dark path, like her former master Anakin Skywalker, who has fallen under the seduction of Emperor Palpatine through the manipulation his attachment with Padmé Amidala. She still affectionally regards Anakin as the best of the Jedi Order. Refusing to train Grogu, Djarin offers to take down the Magistrate with her in exchange, which Tano accepts.

The battle[edit | edit source]

Tano emerges outside the city gates from the mist, igniting her lightsabers. The mercenaries sounded the alarm and attempted to take her down with their blaster rifles, and were fluidly neutralised by the former Jedi. She cuts the bell in half and lands on the other end of the gate. Striding towards The Magistrate and her private army, she tosses Djarin's pauldron with his signet onto the ground, deceiving the Magistrate that the bounty hunter she sent was defeated. Once again, she demanded for information which the Magistrate refused, ordering her men to kill her. She leaps onto the roof while the mercenaries opened fire, deflecting the blaster bolts with ease before disappearing into the alleys. The Magistrate commands Lang to hunt her down with her two HK-87 assassin droids, and tells her men to execute the prisoners before retreating into her mansion. Before the mercenaries can perform the execution, Djarin lands with his jetpack and swiftly defeats the executioners, signalling Wing to free them and take them to safety. Tano quickly eliminates the mercenaries in the alleys, and destroys one of the assassin droids. Lang orders one of the droids to climb up onto the roofs before he came to face Djarin and Tano in a standoff. Tano leaves Lang to Djarin as she enters the mansion to engage in a fierce duel with the Magistrate. The Magistrate was proven to be a worthy opponent against the former Jedi, wielding her Beskar spear against Tano's dual lightsabers. The two exchanges blows while the standoff between Djarin and Lang continues, with Lang attempting to distract the Mandalorian by feigning innocence and surrender. The Magistrate gained a brief upper hand by knocking Tano's single-bladed lightsaber into the water. However, she appeared to be startled when Tano started utilising her signature reverse-grip, the duel quickly ended with Tano holding the Magistate against the blade of her shoto lightsaber. Once again, Tano demanded her to give up the information on the whereabouts of Thrawn. Outside, Lang realised his master's defeat and feigned surrender, attempting to kill Djarin with his blaster pistol, he was defeated by Djarin's swifter quickdraw. Then, the surviving assassin droid appeared on the roof, but was destroyed by Djarin before it can attack, thanks to Wing's warning. After the battle Ahsoka finally overcomes the magistrate and forces her to divulge the location of her master: Grand Admiral Thrawn.

The conclusion[edit | edit source]

A celebration was held in Calodan celebrating the liberation of the city, where Wing was seen cloaked as the new governor. Tano and Djarin engages in a brief conversation outside the gate, where Tano offered him the Beskar spear as a reward. Djarin initially refuses, but accepts it on behalf of the Mandalorians who rightfully possess this weapon. He returns back to the Razor Crest to fetch and bid farewell to Grogu, to bring him under the wing of Tano. He embraces the sleeping infant in his arms while Tano arrives at the bay door, once again refusing to train Grogu, but tells Djarin to take him to the seeing stone on the planet Tython, a place with a strong connection with the Force where Grogu can decide his own fate. She also suggests that other Jedi may come searching for Grogu if they sense him though the Force.
