As the title suggests, this post will NOT be spoiler-free so please do not read if you are not up-to-date with Season Two of The Mandalorian. Thank you!
We had such a HUGE day yesterday with all the new Star Wars confirmed content coming our way that when The Mandalorian episode finally aired, I was extra excited to see it! Titled “The Believer”.
Who is The Believer?
I put this question to my partner who said that it was both Cara Dune and Din Djarin believing in Migs Mayfield who, as you know, is a criminal doing time after his appearance in Season One. And as a result of his actions in this episode (which were so commendable, even I had to side with him at the end), he is rewarded with his freedom.
The Mandalorian UNMASKED for a second time and we love it!
So if you recall, Din Djarin has been unmasked only once before in this show. The first time it happened was when he was wounded badly and Cara Dune had to help him which meant taking off his helmet. We all knew who it was under the helmet, but it was SUCH a surprise to see him finally remove it.
The writers decided in this episode that Din Djarin would have to break the rules of his Mandalorian Creed once more for the sake of saving Grogu. And what a noble gesture it was. It just goes to show the lengths that Din is willing to go to to save his child (it kinda is his child really because he is the “Space Dad”). And we adore him for it!
Din Djarin has some mad hand-to-hand combat skills!
This is the part that I loved the most next to Mando revealing his face to everyone after so long (to which my partner and I let out a huge “ahhhh”). The action sequences are some of my favourites because I just love the fighting and heroism. And we were spoiled this episode when Din Djarin had to face some rebellious pirates without a weapon in some scenes! Amazing sequences and all credit to the director and to the stunt men!
Migs Mayfield is actually a man of conviction and honour!
Yes, he is a criminal however, everyone deserves a second chance, right? He more than proved himself when he stood his ground against the Imperial officer and voiced his opinion on the tyranny and oppression of the Empire. That was a very brave (some might say stupid) thing to do and I think this is why Din and Cara both decided to free him.
Let me know what you thought in the comments and as always, stay safe out there my friends!
