From a daringly lengthy comedic opening to an action-packed resolution and a shock of a final scene, “Redemption” saved The Mandalorian’s Season 1 best for last. Just about every setup was fulfilled, meaningful moments were well-planned, the mythology was advanced, and we’ve got a cliffhanger that can possibly open the doors to a whole host of interesting possibilities for Season 2.
On today’s spoiler-filled episode of the show, I’m also flagging a few things I forgot to mention that were notable in Chapter 7 (Force-choking!), reviewing the highlights of Chapter 8, explaining the significance of *that* final scene, and more. Punch it!
