This episode of The Mandalorian revealed that the Imperial threat is real. Season 3 of the show is set five after Star Wars: Return of the Jedi, and in the first episode, fans saw how the Rebel was foolish enough to believe that the Empire has been defeated.

A fan tweeted that they would not be happy if someone talked ill about Dave Filoni and Jon Favreau.


In the episode, fans saw that Moff Gideon went to extreme lengths to capture The Mandalorian, while it was unclear why Gideon went to such lengths. Some fans speculate it was to satisfy his pride as Din Djarin defeated him in an earlier duel.

Whereas some fans believe that Djarin has a unifying factor for the other Mandalorians, as well as using him to get Grogu. And at one point fans believed our beloved Pedro Pascal as Din Djarin would die in the episode.

A fan was upset because Grogu who has been training for 2 years with Luke, merely walks around the entire episode. While Din Djarin was getting captured, he was a bystander as he did nothing.

Another viewer stated that they were worried as the tension rose so much that they believed that there might be a shocking death or unforeseen turn of events.

While the viewers immensely enjoyed the episode, they could not wait to see what will happen in the season finale of The Mandalorian.


While the viewers have enjoyed season 3 episode 7 of The Mandalorian. Let us take a look at the important events that took place in the episode which had once put its viewers on a mood swing marathon.

A Recap of The Events From Season 3 Episode 7 of The Mandalorian

The recent episode of The Mandalorian was filled with important events and it answered some questions of the viewers such as why Moff Gideon ordered his troops to attack Mandalore. Their queries were soon answered as the episode progressed, Moff Gideon explained that the purge of Mandalore disrupted the electromagnetic field of the planet, which meant that the planet can not be scanned from space.

The second important moment in the episode was when Gideon establishes his base around the Forge, as believed that the Forge is located near rich deposits of Beskar which Mandalorians mold into their armor pieces. And as a result laid a trap, where he captured the Mandalorians and Din Djarin.

Another heartbreaking moment in the episode was Paz Vizsla’s death. When Din Djarin was captured all the Mandalorians revolted against the Empire, and agreed that they will not surrender to them. Though they retreated from Gideon, Paz Vizsla learned that the forces against them are too big in numbers, and he must stop them for others to get a chance to escape. Since he has the greatest firepower among all the Mandalorians, he stayed back to help his fellow brothers escape.

And lastly, the fans of the Empire would be delighted to know that episode 7 marks the return of the Empire, as Moff Gideon is working with various Imperial Warlords. And each one of them would have a serious role, perhaps more than Moff Gideon. And with all these major events, it looks like the season finale would be a thrilling one.
