Chapter 16: Breaking Down The Mandalorian
If you haven’t yet watched Chapter 16 of The Mandalorian, and you haven’t yet been spoiled; well, I am not gonna be the one who lets anything slip.
But here’s a picture of Boba Fett.
Anyway, even the name of the chapter has hints to its result.
So, if you want to remain spoiler free, move along. Move along.
Still here? Good.

Lots Of Folks Watched The Finale
Now, people know how close I am to the source material, so it’s not often that peeps call, text, or write after a new “Star Wars.”
They know I’ve seen it. And — generally — they know I loved it.
And then there is The Mandalorian.
In each ensuing week, I have gotten more texts and tweets and DMs saying, “Did you see the latest episode?” than in any time in the near four years I have been writing — on purpose — about Star Wars.
Meanwhile, in pure understatement, the description of this week’s episode seems to fall far short of the actual action:
“The Mandalorian and his allies attempt a daring rescue.”
Or, you could say:
Din Djarin earns the Darksaber and Luke Skywalker shows up to defeat the Dark Troopers and Boba Fett takes over Jabba’s Palace. And yes, I did say Luke Skywalker (as voiced by a de-aged Mark Hamill), who takes on Grogu in order to train him.
So, yeah. There’s that.
