We're thrown right into the action with an old face, Marshal Cobb Vanth, who's questioning a group of Pykes hanging by a land speeder. They're loading some nefarious goods (spice) onto their vehicle inside briefcases, and though they try to beat him to the punch with their blasters, he takes them out, leaving one alive, whom he allows to leave. Vanth opens a briefcase that's left behind, which at first seems like it's just filled with spice. As more spice falls out, we're just about to see what's in the briefcase when the title credits come on. My guess? It's the Darksaber.
Though viewers were unsure of whether or not our journey with the Mandalorian would pick up in the upcoming Season 3 of his own series, things begin right where we left off in the last episode.
We see Mando in his sparkly-new starship taking off to see Grogu, navigating space, and eventually landing on the planet where Luke Skywalker is training his "little friend." Upon landing, Mando is greeted by another old face: R2-D2. The droid leads him to a half-built stone building that's being crafted by a slew of ant droids. As Mando keeps pestering R2 to bring him to Grogu, R2 finally shuts himself off, leaving Mando to wait on a bamboo bench for further instruction.
