The Mandalorian: Chapter 10 – The Passenger
Another new episode of The Mandalorian hits Disney+ early on Friday. However, last week’s wacky episode bears another close look.
Did I love it? No. It was okay. Did it make me think? Oh yeah.
Finally, was I a little worried about The Child’s new favorite dish? Yep. Did I come up with a possibility beyond his being hungry? Yep.
However, before we keep going, let’s put up the spoiler warning.
Spoilers Ahead For The Mandalorian: Chapter 10….
Still here? Good.
StarWars.com continues to push the envelope in terms of giving us great background material for the series.
Bounty Hunting Highlights: 5 of Our Favorite Moments from The Mandalorian – “Chapter 10: The Passenger”
And Dan Brooks again sets the stage:
Following the Season 2 premiere of The Mandalorian, in which Din Djarin secured another set of Mandalorian armor, the bounty hunter and the Child continue their journey — but with an unexpected and terrifying stop. Here are just a few highlights from the episode!
Meanwhile, let’s highlight the favorite note from Chapter 10:
3. The chase.
As it turns out, you can’t free a New Republic prisoner and get away with it that easily. Two X-wings chase the Razor Crest through an icy terrain, and it’s Star Wars speed at its best.
Is there ANYTHING better than seeing X-wings in action? Nope. I loved the above chase.

Mando Download: “Chapter 10: The Passenger”
Just like last week, there is pelnty of great stuff; from production art to stills to posters:
And the stills are gorgeous:
And, just to address The Child’s, um, diet. You guys remember that the “Doctor” in season one wore a cloning facility uniform. Okay. Do you remember what a cloning facility looks like? Do they remind you of anything?
Do you think, maybe, Baby Yoda was “collecting” the eggs. Remember (and for the life of me I can’t remember who said this first) our little green friend chewed on the spider egg. He swallowed the frogs eggs. Would it be shocking to see The Child “taking care” of a pile of eggs in a future episode? Hmmm?
Was it our friends from New Rockstars who compared Baby Yoda to Eleven from Stranger Things. I like that comparison. And I think our favorite space toddler has some remembering to do.
Anyway, until next week: May the Force be with you.
