The Mandalorian Season 2 Episode 4 FULL Breakdown

759K views83

    The Mandalorian Season 2 Episode 4 dove into the lore of Star Wars.
    The theories are true! Baby Yoda, The Child is being used for his force sensitivity, to transfer that to another body. While all tests haven't succeeded, Moff Gideon and Dr. Pershing are committed to making it happen. This is interesting as I think they could even search Luke Skywalker for his force sensitivity and high midichlorian count. I was happy to hear about the M-Count which we haven't heard of since Qui-Gon Jinn mentioned them in The Phantom Menace when he tested Anakin and sent the sample to Obi-Wan Kenobi.
    This episode took alot of elements from Jedi Knight II which was interesting to see.
    Cloning force sensitives is a hard feat, something that Palpatine and Dooku could not do with General Grievous. Something Vader couldn't do with Galen Marek in The Force Unleashed II.
    It seems, though, that Snoke was created via this process, and maybe his force sensitivity was granted from The Child, which feels weird. Or perhaps, it's from someone else...Luke? Ahsoka? Another force user?
    I'm excited for Episode 5 to finally see Ahsoka Tano and hopefully Boba Fett and Bo Katan later one (maybe Ezra and Sabine too).
    A wild theory I have, is that Mace Windu could appear...I'll have a full video on it tomorrow for you...
    Let me know what you thought of the episode!

    1. Star Wars Theory

      Thanks for joining the watch party and following up with the breakdown. See you all next week as we will witness Ahsoka in live action for the first time, together!! Have a great day, and may the force be with you!!

      1. Venomus Bite

        I thought they were purge troopers

      2. MrBkittle

        @The Lit Train good point

      3. MrBkittle

        What about the inquisitors they were force sensitive

      4. The Lit Train

        If the imperial base blew does it mean the snoke clone got blown up along with the base ?

      5. Leon Paz

        Can't wait! I feel like Mandalorian is the Star Wars we all needed.

    2. Bear Knight

      Haha you talk about the sequel trilogy as if it's Canon. Don't forget to buy your milk sucking Luke Skywalker action figure before they "sell out".

    3. Emet Facione

      0:45. Wait... Mando does show his face. In the last episode of season 1. IG-11 lifts his helmet after Mof Gideon blew up the place that Mando, baby yoda, Cara Dune, and Greef were trapped in.

    4. sehhi vooty

      I knew that one of the people who was fixing Mando’s ship was being sus.

      1. sehhi vooty

        Sebastian Stan for Luke's clone ?

    5. Rock girl

      We now officially have all the scenes from the season 2 trailer

      1. Rock girl

        Spoilers are is not the jedi way

    6. Kappa Barkin

      this is the way

    7. steven G

      the directing wasn't great. A lot of dull and cliched moments especially the dialogue. The humour and wit were a bit mistimed too. its a shame as the special effects are great which is the usually the hardest part in tv series. They really need to bring more depth into these little stories otherwise they going to loose the momentum of the great first series and non star wars fantatics are going to stop watchin.

    8. Will Mungas

      1:11 I actually thought this thing was Gunny from Star Wars: Squadrons (especially with the other new republic pilot in town), but I guess it’s just another of her race. I had never seen this race in any SW media until Squadrons, so I assumed Gunny was the last one of a dying race or they were really rare or something.

    9. Steven Beckerman


    10. Devon Tatarek

      Those aren’t death troopers ?

    11. Dave Drust

      Why did Din fail to inform Ahsoka of what the ex-Empire was doing in their labs, and their need for Grogu's blood?

      1. Dave Drust

        HUGE hole in the story.....

    12. derrickb27

      I was wondering was Kamino and the Kaminoans destroyed? The reason i ask is because it seems like Palpatine, the former Empire and it's acolytes have trouble cloning even after have a massive army of clone troopers in the past.

    13. Beev

      îs "the force unleashed" even canon now?

    14. AiM__FreakZ

      thank u

    15. Rock girl

      I'm worried that Disney is going to use The Mandalorian to further cement the events of the sequel trilogy. I was hoping that nonsense would eventually fade into memory.

    16. R M

      Need more Carl Weathers in this show.

    17. Ilja Gaimovic

      Honestly the lamest episode from season - everything is moving to new Star Wars trilogy style (And it's a worst direction) - Criminal syndicate is gone and now at that so called city living random bunch of people who just doing staff on this volcanic planet (Like you know people are criminals because they wanted to be them and so on, we can just stand on the streets and talk to each other). They even open the school - because why not to show how good they are - All charm of Star Wars criminal world just gone (Prequels now seems more serious and darker compered to this) - Mando from neutral became chaotic good - damn I even don't know from where he is taking money for repairs, if he doesn't do contracts (Considering from first season he wasn't too rich - it just would be more interesting to see how he take contracts, just to earn money to continue the journey) - Is Empire a threat? They just killed whole army on they own base?! And no consequences. (At first season stormtrooper battalion with criminal syndicate kills all mandalorians in city and almost kill Mando). You felt a threat from empire at first season - What about Falcons? They are some kind of police now? In Star Wars? What? I just want to say guys what Mandalorian becomes less and less unique with each episode, and presenting characters from clone wars instead of creating new ones made Mandalorian world even smaller. It's like instead of expanding universe with new ideas we just try to meld Mandalorian with already established stories. I just say what potential of showing Star Wars criminal worlds start to fade. Baby Yoda it seems is added not to develop Mando as character, but as cute fan service merchandise. Honestly last 3 episodes did nothing to character or story development....

      1. Rock girl

        from the common boys name 'Daniel'

    18. David Gee

      I like this show but am bothered at how the protagonists commit mass killings with no reservations, and sometimes when it's not necessary and even to the point where they enjoy. For example, Cara Dune could have brought some of her deputies and arrested the Walrus Men but instead went in there with the full intent to killing them...for stealing. Then when they made their plans to attack the base, the full intent was to kill everyone there, which they did. And a couple times they whooped it up after killing biker troops. Sorry to sound that way, but I like my protagonists to have some sort of virtue beyond starting a grade school.

    19. Nathan Applegate

      I’m calling it. I’m making a prediction. Cara is Kanan Dume’s sister.

    20. yasio bolo

      This was one of the most visually stunning episodes of any show I've seen in a long time...

      1. yasio bolo

        2:07 bro that’s a girl I think

    21. Sir Charizard III

      Sebastian Stan for Luke's clone ?

    22. Gadiel Cruz

      Spoilers are is not the jedi way

    23. Thegamingtrooper 13

      I think they are not shadow trooper i think they are phase 2 dark troopers witch are in the mobile game star wars commander

    24. Thundarr100

      This episode only MIGHT be steering towards the events of The Disney Sequel Trilogy. It's equally possible that it might be steering AWAY from the Disney Sequel Trilogy and is on the road to decanonize them. The bodies in the lab certainly LOOKED like Snoke, and were likely early attempts to genetically engineer him. HOWEVER, Mando, Cara Dune, and the others DESTROYED that facility and killed everyone working there. Which means that Snoke wasn't engineered in THAT lab. Also, in order for The Empire to successfully engineer Snoke, they're going to have to kill off Baby Yoda. Now Disney has stupidly destroyed every marketable character from the original trilogy in order to push Darth Kennedy's gender politics. I highly doubt that they will go out of their way to kill off the ONE AND ONLY MARKETABLE CHARACTER that they had created since they took over the franchise. Which means that if Favreau and Filoni choose to have Mando & Baby Yoda destroy The First Order before it ever becomes The First Order, then that is STILL a very strong possibility.

    25. Thegamingtrooper 13

      The creature that fixes Mando's ship is a species native to Mimban fro Solo a Star Wars story I know it because of Star Wars Squadrons because a pilot is the same species and she tells stories

    26. George Ramos

      How could we see boba-fet when he already died in episode 6? Was that not HIS armor worn on the marshall, found by the jawas ON TATOOINE (where boba-fet died?)

    27. Oz


    28. Greg Lav

      Dat was snoke n da lab

    29. 161

      Remember when in the 70s and 80s you didnt need 100 side projects to make your 3 main movies make sense?

    30. Robert Lyall

      I haven't watched you for so long but I love mando

    31. bcvbb hyui

      This is amazing

    32. Cobz Gaming

      Fun fact: The name of the kid who people believe to be a boy or girl is actually called 'Daniel Negrete'. There are no current pictures of the child online, they're most likely a boy from the common boys name 'Daniel'

      1. bcvbb hyui

        pimp around in.

    33. petersaturday

      Season 2 so far imo is pretty subpar in comparison to the first, The formula for Each episode feels pretty much the same and so far the plot advancing is getting a little bit tiresomeas it struggling to find it's a real purpose.halfway through the season already. It's still fun but it feels like it probably needs to have more time to breathe with its characters and their development.

    34. Cuban

      SPOILER WARNING- Finally caught up fully on the series and can't wait until tomorrow's episode!! So many references, from KOTOR, to Jedi Knight series, to prequels, originals, sequels, it's just a giant explosion of fan service! I am pretty confident we'll eventually see Boba which will be so exciting since we haven't seen him since RotJ and also Sabine, it just has to happen since we're getting close to Ahsoka, and since Sabine took off with her in the Rebels finale to search for Ezra that makes me think we'll see him or at least get some kind of reference.

    35. M R

      This was definitely my favorite episode by far.

    36. That one guy That ate all the beans

      2:07 bro that’s a girl I think

    37. Rodrigo Gonzalez Fuentealba

      Amazing video! How can I join these watch parties?

    38. Patrick Musson

      Dave Filoni will be directing and writing Episode 5, so Ahsoka should be in the next episode.

    39. Ash Scott

      I kinda wish they'd dropped the midichlorians stuff. But I can handle the "M-count" crap if it was just their way of brushing it off forever.

    40. Sang Pham

      If USfilm actually starts putting ads on non-monetized videos by creators who never asked for them, that just goes to show how greedy this corporation can be. This thought is disgusting. USfilm is essentially making free money off small channels and not paying them a single penny. Yes, these are small channels, but since there's so many of them, USfilm will still make a huge profit off of this new policy. I don't care if USfilm hates us now, it must be said by someone. I urge to our subscribers that we spread the message to all creators, and urge USfilm to immediately repeal this new policy. - Father

    41. Jad Jason

      A bit of a casual sw watcher aren‘t we? In combination with the cliffhanger, it meant the darktroopers‘ return. Not some sequel bullshit. This series has dignity.

    42. zuygj bnsv

      I knew that one of the people who was fixing Mando’s ship was being sus.

    43. ZfancyMan

      I'm pretty sure the alien spy who fixed the razorcrest was a young Ochi Of Bestoon

      1. zuygj bnsv

        Kara dun sure got fat

    44. Seaton ,Z

      It blows my mind how effectively The Mandalorian is able to capture the nostalgic aesthetic of the original trilogy but keeps it an interesting and genuinely different story. It just shows how they could’ve handled the new trilogy vs how they actually handled it.

    45. EricMichael Willard

      I was up for the part of "blue jeans guy" in this weeks episode but i lost out on the part to the other guy. He was able to just stand there lurking bts better than i was i suppose.. but nbd my agent called me with a herpes medication commercial so hey im not salty about it! im gonna be the face of herpes and he got to be in star wars. Lucky b*stard. Oh im so jelly.. but hey i get to be the new face of genital herpes! 🤣☠👻

    46. EricMichael Willard

      And the effin DARK TROOPER reveal via close captioning was freaking huge as well!

    47. EricMichael Willard

      I am so freaking excited for next weeks episode.. sooo many payoffs coming to fruition. Obviously the big one we're all anticipating is Ahsoka Tanos live action reveal and thats definitely the big one but i meant more like now that theres a tracking device on the Razor Crest courtesy of the jerk at the end of epi 4.. so theoretically Moff Gideon could arrive 5 mins after Din and the child so Din will do the hard work of sniffing out Ahsokas location amd Moff will swoop in at the perfect time like hes done repeatedly already and round up two birds with one stone.. hopefully Bo Katan Kryze shows up again too! Din and company could deffo use the firepower for backup however i don't think this is very likely to occur.. otherwise, Bo Katan would have just taken them to Ahsoka to begin with. She was able to save his bacon a few times when he was on the same planet as her but i doubt she shows up now unless Ahsoka contacts her somehow as soon as Din arrives. I think the First Order is on the rise as well as the Sith Eternal, aka papa palpatines crazy creepy culty group thats always lurking behind the scenes in the shadows waiting, watching, plotting and cloning? Yes deffo cloning, gotta get papa palpatine a gucci new ride to pimp around in.

    48. Austin’sBRIX Levy

      I did not realize that was snoke o_o

    50. Randy Krus

      I wish this show was better. Kinda meh. But I still watch it.....

    51. Indyday

      I don't like the 2nd season. The first 4 episodes are almost completely stolen from other movies... The spiders and the eggs in this ice cave is from ALIEN. Baby Yoda trying to fix the hyperdrive is almost 1to1 copy from MCU/Guardians of the Galaxy 2 where Rocket tries to show baby groot how to detonate the bomb in the planet. He is always flying from point A to B to do generic sh*t in generic places with generic dialogues. Its so repetitive like the Walking Dead.

    52. einfachnurbaum

      I love how he says baby Yoda instead of The Child. Because it’s Baby Yoda god dammit !

    53. Raphael

      When will the Jedi appear on the Mandalorian series?

      1. B B

        Have you seen the title of the next episode?

    54. GrayJediJ Gaming

      It cracks me up when you get dramatic.

    55. misuyy fong

      may see Gideon offer Bo Katan a trade of the dark saber for the child turning her into an adversary, at least for a time.

      1. misuyy fong

        The CG in the chase scene is noticeable but very forgivable

    56. André Marc

      this serie sucks...its for women, SW is for women today.

    57. Smol brain 100

      you will be rewarded the new era feels like a mortal kombat 11 refrence, its like the main driving plot in the game

    58. dexter morgan

      more action and less baby yoda!!!!

    59. Ted Wendelboe

      Kara dun sure got fat

    60. MovieMonsterMania

      Dune does have a resemblance to a young Carrie Fisher ngl, I could see her being Leia’s step sister, maybe a little step sister though?

    61. boojum402

      What?!?! you didn't notice that the alien that planted the tracking device on the razorcrest is a near spitting match for Ochi from Bestoon? You missed the most obvious direct tie in to the third series so far in the Mandalorian saga. Un-Freaking believable.

    62. MLT_Mango

      Am I the only one who thought the people in the tubes were another failed project black wing?

    63. Dopermean

      I don’t want Mando to take his helmet off

    64. T.K.

      Also the fact that they’re tracking the razor crest and not concerned about the ship jumping to hyperspace implies that they already have access to at least a prototype of a device that will track a ship through hyperspace, in theory.

      1. B B

        Totally different. Watch the OT. They've always been able to track no matter how many hyperspace jumps using tracking a device planted on a ship. In TLJ what you are thinking of was the ability to do it without a tracking device being planted on the target ship. Completely unrelated.

    65. Obaman’t

      Something tells me mace windu may return... it makes sense in that he’ll get a proper death to boba fett in getting revenge for his dad jango fett. Plus he probably didn’t die to that fall from palpatine

    66. americandesign

      I have rewatched the whole Mandalorian s02 from e01- to 04 . And I tell you guys, there are no filler episodes if you consider the whole 4 parts we've seen (so far) as one film. It has the "waving" right, so one episode is giving us hints and slower pace, but bulding to the "explosion" of the next chapter. I feels like a whole movie. A moovie that we all waited for a long time. A moovie that's whole better than the sequels together! (RIP Reylo-Nobody-Palpatine-Skywalker!) I strongly suggest to do the same! - Find some time 4 it! (C'mon you too have the chapters dowloaded already on your winchester, dont you?) - And BTW the music is AMAZING, Thanx to Göran Ludvigsson for the whole stuff! So try it... I have spoken. THIS IS THE WAY!

    67. Putins Cat

      The Mandalorian should stay on the outer rim, and show us what was going on with the old Empire, hidden from the rest of the galaxy. If Luke shows up, meets Ahsoka, tickles Baby Yoda, it will really F up the timeline. Luke only had a sense of this, and he never proved the Emperor was alive.

    68. Kirat Ubhi

      man like mr kim innit

    69. satchm05

      I think I speak for most real fans when I say: PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE don’t connect to the “sequel trilogy”! We all have to be united, consistent, and clear on insisting and demanding this!

    70. Raiken Xion

      I'm gonna be the unpopular comment here and say this, remember how TLJ trailers went down back in 2017? We all built our hopes up and had all those expectations and Luke was even telling us all the long -"this is not going to go the way you think!" And none of us saw it at the time, we were just all so damned obsessed with trying to connect the obvious.

    71. Jesse Parbhu

      Love these breakdowns!

    72. Rom Pan

      The CG in the chase scene is noticeable but very forgivable

      1. yuitr loing

        Why the hell are we talking about Snoke again... nobody cares.

    73. Taladon

      The sequels surely wouldn't suck if Dave Filoni and John Favreau made them


        They work good together

    74. Jeremy Henry

      I don't want Mando to show his face. I like the added mythos

      1. Jeremy Henry

        @yuitr loing I don't have ads

      2. yuitr loing

        Love your content bro but god the ads.

    75. J WC

      Such a sick vid

    76. Pete Jurich

      So the being that the know of that has the highest M count would be Luke. They don’t really know who Leia really is. I know it would be some expensive cgi but they’d going after Luke would be awesome.

    77. Fire Demon

      Watch this episode and go to 18:53 and you will see this guy that thought he was off the scene on the left side of the screen. It’s true try it

    78. Pip Jim

      What did captain tarva give Cara at the end?

    79. Batman Biggins

      The volunteer can’t be Moth Giddean. The recording talking about the volunteer was sent to Moth Gideean

    80. Kendrick Tanrio

      One day this kind of story will make the sequel trilogy look a little better

    81. liam riley

      Got a feeling they’re gonna kill off baby yoda

    82. Sander Matoe Singsaas

      Dis is da weh

      This is the way

    85. w0w0wner

      Where is this scene from? 6:08 to 6:20

      1. cqvio doli

        they’re finna drop ashoka for 5 seconds at the end of the season just like they did with boba fett

    86. Babymax949

      That's all great but the episodes are full of references that it's becoming annoying. Just make new moments instead of referencing things. Kenner toys, Voice lines taken from ep IV (specifically "Alright men, load your weapons. There they are, blast them!" from Stormtroopers which exit the elevator to shoot at the main characters when they're escaping the base), characters, cameos... It's like they're saying to your face "LOOK GUYS WE KNOW STAR WARS, REMEMBER THIS?".

    87. Shor Goldman

      Did anyone else notice 'The March of the Resistance' softly playing towards the end?

    88. Liam Murphy

      Love your content bro but god the ads.

    89. Kale 94627

      Why the hell are we talking about Snoke again... nobody cares.

    90. Daniel Walker

      They're dark troopers not shadow troopers

    91. Shaun Albert

      Anything about the medalion that the x-wing pilot latest down I know it means something but I can't figure it out

    92. PatitoFeo47

      I really like how formulaic the show is.

    93. PrettyBoy23

      I knew I heard Snoke’s theme, this actually makes the reveal snoke was clone actually not too bad but a cool idea

    94. RaidenNexus97

      I know Mando gotta be sick of going on all these side missions. Bet he cant wait to get back to the main story

    95. Ipro Fox

      If they connect the Shequels to the Mandalorian. It will only hurt the show.

    96. themarcusnash13 nashty

      Can anyone tell me why this episode was so good besides the hints they gave? I’m sorry but that Gina carano girl sucks so bad at acting. Killing off stormtroopers like it’s nothing. Felt like the whole episode was for 7 year olds. Cheesiest episode to date imo

    97. Zackary Batchelor

      I love coming to this channel after watching the episode to see what i missed and all the cool things you have to say I absolutely can’t wait to see Ashoka

    98. Last jedi

      Hi you doing amazing job I have a question for you do you think Ahsoka Tano and Sabine wren would mention to Lando about Ezra Bridger in Thrawn ?

    99. Wildfire

      They are building up the story big time. I was surprised to see an imperial cruiser. Even more when i saw those enhanced dark troopers in the room with Moff Gideon. This is going somewhere big. Almost feels like i'm watching an actual movie.

    100. chefpete12571

      So it takes Jon Favreau to fill in the giant plot hole that both Abrams and Johnson couldn't. Snoke and the First Order could have been explained in 5 to 10 mins flashback (or just a simple explanation) in any of the 3 different feature films.
