Last week’s fog has gone. The ghostly samurai world of Corvus is behind us. In the 6th episode of the 2nd season of The Mandalorian we arrive at the planet Tython, which plays a special role for the Jedi in the Star Wars universe. The sun is shining, the sky is blue and Baby Yoda is looking towards his future. But then it happens eponymous tragedy the episode.
The Mandalorian: villain Moff Gideon attacks
He stayed in the background for a long time. Now Moff Gideon (Giancarlo Esposito) strikes with an iron fist. How merciless the villain is – we could already testify in the last two episodes of the first season of The Mandalorian. He still hasn’t got his hands on Baby Yoda. Thanks to his scary dark trooper this time he comes much closer to his goal.
Before the action starts and Baby Yoda gets into distress, series creator and screenwriter Jon Favreau reminds us of the relationship that developed between Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal) and little Grogu. Just how the taciturn bounty hunter says the name of his little protégé shows us one loving, playful facet the figure who usually hides behind impenetrable Beskar.
We still have to do without Pedro Pascal’s face in the second season, but the smile under his helmet is due to the Sound of his voice visible. “Thanks farrik” is no longer an expression of anger and frustration, but a secret cry of joy. At the same time, the grief is unmistakable: With the next planetary stop, the two might part ways if a Jedi hears Grogus’ call.

In the ruins of the ancient temple on Tython, Baby Yoda actually manages to connect to all the Jedi who survived the devastating events of Order 66 and the Empire’s reign of terror. The Separation of Din and Grogu however, happens differently than expected: Instead of a wise Jedi master, Moff Gideon appears with his battleship and attacks.
The return of Boba Fett and Fennec Shand is disappointing
Tython becomes the # 1 destination in the Star Wars universe in The Mandalorian this week. Before Gideon’s troops land on the planet in Iron Man formation, Boba Fett (Temuera Morrison) and Fennec Shand (Ming-Na Wen) report back from oblivion. An encounter that was extreme despite the element of surprise disappointing. The characters are there, but nothing more. This is followed by stumbling over hill and dale.
After the atmospheric and touching Ahsoka episode, The Tragedy turns out to be half-baked Mando chapter. Everything is heading towards a – admittedly very disturbing – cliffhanger. In between, Jon Favreau tells shockingly little. Director Robert Rodriguez, the season’s most famous director, is obviously making an effort to cover up the weak script with wild shootings.
Nevertheless, the events shown do not have a dynamic effect. Neither do the individual fights combine to form a large, impressive action sequence. Din, Boba and Fennec are still growing together to form the team that sets out at the end of the episode to free the baby Yoda who was kidnapped by Moff Gideon. Even the Jango memory moment acts as if it were recited.
Cooler than the dark sword: Baby Yoda’s favorite ball
A strong picture remains: Din, who fishes the small ball from the burned remains of the Razor Crest, which has been since the 1st season Baby Yoda’s object of desire is. What began as a cute running gag has now become symbolic of the relationship between the two. No Beskar spear can get there, not to mention the dark sword that looms large before Grogus’ eyes.
What works best in The Tragedy is what makes The Mandalorian unique as a Star Wars series: the Relationship between Din and Grogu. The Razor Crest also belongs to a certain degree – at least the explosion of the spaceship feels significantly more weighty than any recording of the Slave 1, which is subsequently stowed away without any sense of the ship, its shape or its history.
Actually, the scratched shell should be the History of Star War describe, but The Mandalorian doesn’t let us get that close, just like with Boba Fett and Fennec Shand. Any potential for conflict is left behind. It is frustrating. The return of Bill Burrs Mayfeld, a truly depraved contemporary, is all the more gratifying.
