This is it. The big one. The one everyone was waiting for: Dave Filoni's return to The Mandalorian, and the live action debut of a very special character.
After a slightly underwhelming outing in Chapter 12, The Mandalorian returned with a bang this week in what may just be the series' best episode yet. And no, that's not just because it features Ahsoka Tano (Rosario Dawson) in a leading role; the episode itself is remarkably well crafted, as much a love letter to the two most pivotal influences on Star Wars as it was an excellent story in its own right.
Chapter 13 picks up like all other Mandalorian episodes where the previous entry left off, with Din Djarin and The Child on the way to Corvus to find Ahsoka Tano. The episode wastes no time at all in introducing us to the legendary Jedi, as we get to see her brandish her two iconic white lightsabers and take down a local militia.
The episode features a classic premise (a local village is under the occupation of an evil warlord and our two heroes must join forces to liberate it), but boasts the most depth of any Mandalorian episode so far. It's truly brilliant stuff, and illustrates perfectly why Dave Filoni is the perfect flag-bearer for the galaxy far, far away...
