Raid Squad – Star Wars: The Mandalorian
Here comes the recap of chapter 12 of the series with the subtle humor (even if it’s rather brute this time).
Again: SPOILER ALERT! We warned you.
That’s what episode 12 was about
Mando wants to visit Ahsoka Tano on Corvus’ ex-Jedi padawan. Her quest to escort Baby Yoda home could take a significant step forward thanks to her. Only: Mando’s spaceship has had to take a lot lately and urgently needs his 10,000 Parsec customer service. To do this, he sets off to Navarro, the planet on which he originally picked up “the child”. His comrades-in-arms from season 1 – Greef Carga, now a planetary chief mufti, and Cara Dune, who pushes Law and Order through on his behalf – are happy to help. But not for free. But for Mando’s help with a very simple job. Quick in, quick out, boom. In terms of film history, it rarely worked out.

That’s REALLY what episode 12 was about
Not here either. An allegedly abandoned imperial base is said to be melted down by means of volcanic activity in order to finally liberate Navarro five years after the “death” of the emperor. Problem: The base is not abandoned. And: The basis is not a basis. So: at least not a shabby outpost where people from the past sip the last of the canned food. But a well-secured laboratory in which experiments on creatures are carried out. Experiments in which Baby Yoda plays a central role.

Unlike in season 1, when he parked Baby Yoda wherever he could, Mando is reluctant to let his protégé out of sight in the second season. In this episode, Mando is persuaded to let the little one go to school for a while and listen to a 3PO protocol droid being taught. Why the child should be extra safe in the care of a relative of C-3PO – known for hysteria and rabbit feet – has not been revealed to us. But the presence of this type of robot beamed us back mentally back into the classroom. At a time when we had Star Wars toys like C-3PO secretly in our school bags.
Like any big villain, wants a private army: Moff Gideon – Star Wars: The Mandalorian
A key letter falls in the research laboratory. It’s the M. And presumably: M for Midi-Chlorianer. These are intelligent microorganisms living in the cells of living things, introduced by George Lucas in Episode I. To explain why some beings can use the Force like the Jedi. Answer: You have a particularly large number of midi-chlorians in your blood. Let’s put it diplomatically: A little magic would have been ok instead of the pseudoscientific explanation. So now the midi-chlorians are back. And explain what makes Baby Yoda so interesting for the evil Imperials. Apparently, his blood is supposed to be used to breed super soldiers who use power.
Baby Yoda as a mechanic. Because the little one fits into the cable tunnel, Mando patiently tries to train his protégé for mending work. Until the child hits the blow in the literal sense of the word.
One of the biggest criticisms of the Star Wars trilogies of this millennium was that the makers never really wanted to break away from their formula for success. It was about the Jedi, the Sith, the Skywalkers, a desert planet, a monster, a chase, a lightsaber duel. Showrunner Jon Favreau and part-time director Dave Filoni as an over-geek have managed to liven up the well-known universe with new genres, new stories and new characters. To connect and assemble with pleasure and awe the canon stories that have now accumulated in this universe. The uniforms of the “Dark Trooper” at the end of episode 12, for example, dock on comics and allegedly also a computer game. (No, we didn’t play every game ourselves. But almost.) The clones in the tanks on Navarro, on the other hand, are reminiscent of the previously mysteriously deformed, but undoubtedly powerful Supreme Leader Snoke from episodes VII and VIII. Geeks and casual fans: For everyone is something there. And most of all, the creators are probably amused by their Easter egg hiding. That breathes life into the entire franchise and is also extremely personable. We like to geek with you.
