As you snooze Mando will get his proud papa moment, Oso will get a new name and we will all meet a Jedi under calm moonlight.
942 – The Jedi | Mandoborian on Mandalorian Chapter 13 S2 E5
[START OF RECORDING]
SCOOTER: Friends beyond the binary, ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, former…current, former, previous Jedi and anyone formally of Jetta anywhere, or if your name…Jenna or…what…any…wherever…could be anything. Wherever you’re from, however you got here, I’m glad you’re here ‘cause I’m gonna get mixed up and go off-topic again soon because it’s time for Sleep With Me, the podcast that puts you to sleep.
INTRO: [INTRO MUSIC] Hey, are you up all night tossing, turning, mind racing? Trouble getting to sleep? Trouble staying asleep? Well, welcome. This is Sleep With Me, the podcast that puts you to sleep. We do it with a bedtime story. Alls you need to do is get in bed, turn out the lights, and press play. I’m gonna do the rest. What I’m going to attempt to do is create a safe place where you could set aside whatever is keeping you awake, whether it’s thoughts you’re thinking about that might be on your mind from the past or the present or the future, or you’re just thinking. Could be wandering thoughts. Maybe that’s something I’ve never talked about, the old thought…wandering thoughts and the thought-wanderer. Could be feelings or emotions coming up related to the thoughts or that are just there or that are layovers from the day or the distant past.
All that comes up for me. Also physical sensations could be keeping you awake or it could be other stuff. It could be changes in routine or time, temperature, stuff out of your control. I mean in some sense you say well, most of it’s out of my control. Could be remote…what if it’s a remote control car? What if there was a miniature remote control car? This would keep me up at night, that somehow…gained…it could plug itself in…it found…it’s like it has a miniature Roomba dock where it can recharge itself. You don’t know where the Roomba dock is so you can’t unplug it. I’m thinking a micro-machine and it only activates at night. That would keep me up. You say, is that that micro…is that my imagination or is that a sell…semi-sentient micro-machine? A micro-machine…oh, that’s another thing.
Sorry, I’m off-topic early but…so, once upon a time, kids played with these cars. They were called diecast cars and I have no idea when they were invented. Could be anywhere from 1930 to 1970. When I came around, the biggest brand…there was a couple of competitors but the biggest brand was called Hot Wheels. I had a few Hot Wheels. I think a couple of my younger siblings even had the Hot Wheels…they had play sets. As we’ve heard about…I was more into chillaxing figures and action figures than cars because it led to the podcast. Otherwise I’d be on Car Talk 2.0 or something. But so, at some point in the 80s I think, somebody said hm, these Hot Wheels are really hot stuff, man. They’ve been around…Scooter doesn’t know when they…they’ve been around for decades, possibly.
This is at one of those big toy conglomerates. They said I need ideas. You know, the person with the…they said, see? Give me your best ideas. Put the Hot Wheels out of business. ‘Cause no offense to Hot Wheels’ competitors. Usually the competitors of Hot Wheels you would get at the drug store which in Syracuse was Fay’s which didn’t just…didn’t…now there’s…it didn’t just have prescription stuff. It was a bit like a grocery store which now they’ve become again. There’s just two or three companies that run all those now. But you would go there to get your low-grade electronics and toys as well as other things. They had the competitors to…they probably had Hot Wheels but they were way overpriced. I think the Hot…the other…these are toy cars. Yes, I’m still talking about it.
But so, they had a meeting, this one toy conglomerate. I’m imagining this; this is not a history podcast. But they said give me some ideas. Somebody in the back, she said what if we make the car…what if we take the Hot Wheel cars, get rid of the metal, and make them much, much smaller? At first, probably this person was…anymore…then we said wait a second, go back. You sounded like you had facts to back up your…well, this is cost-savings. This is a packaging-savings. This is a unique marketing idea. Also, there’s this person we know who has the world record for talking fast. We could get them to do the commercials and they take up less space. So, it’s a very unique USP or whatever, unique selling proposition; micro-machines. People love…haven’t you seen any of those shows? They have shrink rays.
That’s one of the big themes on sci-fi adventure series. These kids would have their own shrink ray. I say okay, let’s do it. Also, what does this have to do with a sleep podcast and how did you start talking about it? I have no idea. I think I was talking about the…some…I think I thought I was gonna talk about something about…I had another phrase that I was gonna use and then, yeah, I don’t know how I started…I think I was trying to make a point. Physical sense…oh, changes in time or temperature, wandering thoughts. I think I just went into a wandering thought and got lost. But whatever’s keeping you awake, I’d like to…I have no idea. So, I was talking about wandering thoughts that just come up, other things that could change your…oh, a sentient micro-machine.
That was a remote…I was trying to explain what a micro-machine was. That’s what a micro-machine is. Then a remote control car, most people are familiar with that concept but just in case, it’s a car, a toy car. You have a remote control and you can move it around and control it; varying degrees of quality and control. This particular car is a fictional invention but it’s very small, like the micro-machines were. Also, somehow it can recharge itself and it doesn’t have a controller. Unfortunately it’s nocturnal and it’s hidden. I don’t know why. These things just pop in my brain and…but I was…I guess my point was that could keep you awake at night if it just…you say is that thing living under my bed? Your partner or spouse would say well, technically, it’s not living. It’s a sentient toy.
You say don’t bother…don’t quibble with me right now. Trying to go to sleep and I got some sort of…and I don’t want to start wandering around and step on it because then it would be like stepping on a Lego. Also, could this ever be a movie? Is anybody from any of those big…we could put this out in October 2021/2022, the Miniature Sentient Car. I mean, we’ll figure out another name for it but that’s for a sleep podcast. But whatever’s keeping you awake, whether it’s sentient micro-machines or…I mean, not even…it’s not fully sentient. It’s just found a way to power itself. Now, there could be a whole narrative. Pixar, you could find me, too. We could have a whole narrative of what the car’s doing at night. It’s obviously searching for something. Probably has an emotional need as well.
Once you…is there any Toy Story scheduled direct to streaming? Well, I guess direct to streaming now is…I’d say well, we’re putting that out on the movie theatre. It’s like, five years from now. I’m kidding. I love going to the movies, but it used to be if you went direct to video, that was the downside. If Pixar was gonna put out a Toy Story direct to video…like, Toy Story 12: The Sentient Micro…The Little Micro-Machine That Did Keep Me Up At Night. Oh boy, that’s an early tangent. Regular listeners, you’re celebrating that. New listeners, you’re probably confused which is a natural way to get to this show. Or, well, you get confused once you start listening, so here’s what I’m gonna do. I’m gonna try to keep you company while you fall asleep. I’m gonna send my voice across the deep, dark night.
I’m gonna use lulling, soothing, creaky, dulcet tones, pointless meanders and superfluous tangents which we just got through, about eight minutes of them. All to keep you company while you drift off. That’s the kinda…the…I can’t patent the mix of Sleep With Me unfortunately, but that’s what we do here, is…and it can be surprising. A few things; this is a podcast you don’t really listen to. You just kinda passively consume it. Another person in another situation on another alternative world or a alternate dimension, another person, another adult is living in a home with a sentient micro-machine. We’re just using that word. I realize it’s not a sentient micro-machine. But they find it [00:10:00] barely distracting and they just listen to it while it drives around and they fall asleep to it, so that’s another…that’s a refreshing thing to know.
Oh, there’s an alternative…and of course, the partner would say that; dear, did you know there’s an alternative universe where you find a remote control car driving around our home in the middle of the night comforting? I say okay, go sleep in the guest room, please. Take your quibbling. So, oh, so this is a podcast you don’t really listen to. Just kind of loosely consume it, just like that person in the alternative universe is just kinda barely paying attention. I don’t know, a bit like a fan or something or some other comforting sound that you’ve developed a comforting relationship with. Hopefully you’ll learn not to listen to me so much you’ll…we’ll have a comforting…I can comfort you or keep you company. That’s the first part of the podcast that throws people off, is like, wait a second, I don’t really…you don’t really tell me a story and put me to sleep?
I say well, no. I kind of keep talking about stuff and then I go off-topic and you stop…you barely listen to me. Also, I don’t really put you to sleep. I’m here to keep you company while you drift off. That’s why the episodes are over an hour, because you could drift off at your leisure, but there’s also some reassurance there that if you can’t sleep, I’m gonna be here for you. My job is to keep you company whether you’re listening or not. I don’t know…if we could get a interview of that micro-machine…I’m sure I’m gonna be hearing from them. They say oh, you think you heard…you think you can laugh at the toy conglomerates now? I’d say well, it does the most promote…no offense, but I’m sure eBay…I don’t know, are you still in…no offense, are you still in business? ‘Cause I haven’t heard…I mean, out of…I’m sorry.
I didn’t mean to be…that wasn’t nice of me to say that, Mr. Micro-Machine, Mr. Toy Baron. I’m sorry. I was just having a laugh at your expense ‘cause I just haven’t heard anybody other than me…I’m just saying that I was giving you some…I was doing some speculative micro-machine fiction I guess, and other than…I’m sure there’s a sub-genre of erotica that’s micro-machine-related. That’s probably got a very strong niche community and that’s a beautiful thing too, but this is different. Oh, and also, I’m trying to do a sleep podcast and I got sub-genred. I sub-genred myself. So, anyway, the podcast you don’t really listen to, doesn’t really put you to sleep. I’m just here for you. It does take some getting used to. It’s a very common theme among our regular listeners. They say give it two or three tries.
That’s how long it takes for most people to get used to this podcast. When I say get used to it, it means you just…you mostly stop listening to it or stop paying attention to it. Those are the first three things to know, but I’m here for you to keep you company while you fall asleep. Also, the structure of the show can really throw people off. Show starts off with a greeting so you feel seen and welcome; friends beyond the binary, ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls. Then there’s some listener support and then show sponsors. That’s how we keep the podcast coming out twice a week so you can listen to it for no cost. Then there’s the intro. The intro’s around twelve…no, it’s around fifteen to twenty minutes, I guess. Sometimes it’s…I don’t know when…the last time it was twelve minutes ‘cause the listeners…it serves a purpose.
That’s why it’s kinda grown to the fifteen to twenty-two-minute range. The purpose the intro serves is to give you some space between the daytime and the nighttime. It’s kind of like Audio Dusk. I think I’ve talked about that before, just like the sun doesn’t just drop out of the sky. How weird would that be? You say, it’s daytime? Now it’s nighttime. Nature doesn’t work that way. It took me 950-something episodes to figure that out, but the podcast does follow nature in that way, probably inspired by it but I forgot about it. But yeah, that’s the truth; the sun doesn’t just drop out of the sky or pop up and say yo, it’s day. Get up. I mean, sometimes it feels that way but the sun eases across the sky and below the horizon and then eases back up. Sleep With Me kinda does the same thing.
It eases you into sleep and gives you some distance between your day life and your day concerns and being asleep, because for most of us, we’ve dealt with other stuff, all the stuff and all the advice that people give and for me, none of it worked, or it worked once. What works is having a wind-down routine and hopefully for regular listeners, Sleep With Me is part of that whether you’re winding down in bed with your eyes closed drifting off, or you’re doing some other calming activity or you’re getting ready for bed or you’re listening during the day, or maybe you listen on your couch or in your guest room. I mean, I’m just saying different bedtime routine stuff I’ve tried, like reading in another room and then going and getting in bed. I don’t know. Ideally, it’s part of your wind-down routine.
Now, you could start the show at twenty minutes. About now at this point, 3% of listeners or so do that. A few thousand people listen to story-only episodes, so there’s that option on Patreon. That’s on Patreon. Then everyone else, they kinda just slowly wind down. So, that’s the intro. Then there’s some sponsors. Again, that’s how this show’s free, and then there’s our discussion of the Mandabore…Mandaborian; that’s me on the show, the program The Mandalorian. I’ll run through an episode about a Jedi and then there’s thank-yous, so that’s the structure of the show. Kinda talked about the other stuff that could throw you off. Totally understandable if you’re skeptical or doubtful or you even dislike me or the show. I have a website; sleepwithmepodcast.com/nothankyou for people that definitely don’t like the podcast. But give it a few tries because I’m just here to help. The reason I make the show is two-fold.
One, I’ve been there in the deep, dark night tossing, turning, mind racing, waking up too early, waking up in the middle, all of it. I’ve been there and I know how it feels. I know how it feels emotionally and I know how it feels physically and I know how it feels mentally, not just in the deep, dark night but on the day after and the day after that. If I can help any way I can, that bedtime dread, to make bedtime something you feel neutral about or ideally, Sleep With Me becomes part of a bedtime routine for you that you look forward to. Just like me when I’m reading a good book, I really look forward to bedtime and I say, can’t wait to get in bed, pull up my weighted comforter and all that stuff and get in my sheets and snuggle in. Or if I’m trying something…well, I’m gonna read on the couch or the deck for a little while, then I’m gonna get in bed and then just go to sleep. So, hopefully Sleep With Me becomes something…even if you don’t look forward to it…I mean, I’m going for just pure…you say well, I kinda feel…I used to dread bedtime.
Now I kinda feel…I’m not sure if Scoots is using this word the correct way; ambivalent, but I say NBD man, no big deal. I got Scoots to bare…that I can barely listen to at bedtime. The other reason I make the show is because…it’s more important; that’s you. You deserve a good night’s sleep. You deserve a place you can rest and I hope this podcast can provide that for you or you find another sleep podcast or a sleep audio solution or maybe just create your own bedtime routine and that works for you, or you listen to the podcast…Sleep With Me…like, some people are having a tough time; they listen to Sleep With Me and they get through it and then they’re sleeping sound. That’s great, graduating from the podcast. So, whatever it is, I’m glad you’re here. I really hope I can help, so give it a few tries. I work really hard. I yearn and I strive and I really hope I can help you fall asleep. Thanks again for coming by and here’s a couple of ways I’m able to bring you this show for free twice a week.
Alright everybody, it’s Scoots here and loading up the + as only I say here in this…as only Scoots can say. Putting it on mute and loading the +. Oh boy though, it picked up where I last left off. I don’t like it when that happens, which was at the end of the episode. I want to get all the way to beginning where it says D+. Then we have the…previously on the Mandalorian. This is the one…wait a second, I gotta get the…it’s a couple other issues I have with this, is that I forget to put on the subtitles and then I forget to turn them off. Then on my TV I get confused when I’m trying to watch The Mandalorian for pleasure which is what I do on Friday. I just watch in slow-mo, the…that scene where the Mandalorian was running, over and over and over again. [00:20:00] Let’s see, so we got D+, previously on The Mandalorian, this is the one, yeah. Looks helpless.
It’s not helpless, by the way. This is the armor and Mando. Move objects, eons ago, wizards, Mandalore, sorcerers called Jedi. It’s a foundling. It’s in your care by creed, especially when you’re standing next to Apollo Creed, but…and then Mando says, I do like this. He goes, you want me to return this thing to an army of enemy sorcerers? Search the galaxy? She goes, it wouldn’t be an armor but this is the way, by the way. Quested with returning the child to the Jedi. This is when he’s talking to the heiress. First, we need your help. Checking out this ship, doing some fist-bumping. We see the Beskar in full action, landing…where can I find the Jedi? Calodan on the forest planet of Corvus. Ashoka Tano. Tell her you were sent by Bo-Katan and thank you. Your bravery won’t be forgotten. This is the way.
Mando jets off, goes to pick…goes to his babysitter. They don’t show that part. Then we have the Lucasfilm and the Disney stuff; clang, clang. Oh, planeton…smokes…oh, palace…palace-type thing, three smoke stacks on the right, cobblestones. Very smoky. Something on poles moving…oh, lanterns on poles moving in the wind. Clang, clang. Soldiers running, people hiding, palace castle walls, dead tree forest. White lightsabers times two. So, we see a palace, a forest. It took me…now, this is kinda the person I am; it only took me four watches of this episode to realize why the planet or the area around this town is so bleak, because there’s this industrialist, I think. I’m still not positive ‘cause they don’t…though, every once in a while I’ll get click-baited into reading something about the Mandalorian episodes.
For the most part I try not to read anything or consume anything other than the episode. I never…that’s always been my policy except for the final season of Game of Thrones. So, now I’m back on…whatever you call that, media non-consumption, just because it…I don’t know. I don’t want to be like milk and go spoiling, you know? Not be spoiled in a way to be influenced or to be…have a sympathetic vibration with a writer or a podcaster. Also, it’s better for me to have my veil of ignorance on. Anyway, the soldiers go out. There’s some…they’re playing laser tag. Yeah, then we see two white lightsabers and I’m talking…what do you call that? When you use one of those lamps…I have one for the winter season. What do they call that? Full-spectrum brightness or something? This is Ashoka Tano, clearly.
Also, I’ve seen a few episodes of the Clone War…Clone Wars, so…but Ashoka Tano is doing…this was awesome. I feel like the…I guess I haven’t re-watched Season One but the…some of these action sequences in the past few episodes and then the two episodes I’ve seen after this have just been whoa, boy. Hopefully it’s the budget and, I mean, great work by everybody on the show, but I would say keep bumping that budget up because that’s…if that’s what…I don’t know. Really well-coordinated sequences. This is one of them. She’s using stealth and her speed and probably some of her Jedi powers. Also probably she can influence the smoke a little bit.
Then the idea of brightness of the lightsabers, and then turning them back off which…because…well, I don’t know who the soldiers are but if they have anything like human eyes, then you say well, if I saw two bright white lightsabers in a smoky area…I think this is what Ashoka Tano would…Ashoka Tano would say if she was training someone. You don’t have to use the Jedi power to…’cause they would…their eyes would have to adjust and I can just move out of the way, a bit like a flashlight. Oh, nobody’s follow…that’s good; nobody’s following along. Went on such a tangent, I lost even myself. Okay, smoke, mist, ramparts, watching, soldier, and a woman with a staff. Off the scope. They want lots of hide-and-seek but she says goodbye and tags everybody in this hide-and-seek game.
Then the magistrate says…so, the woman with the staff is a magistrate which I should figure out…maybe I should circle that and learn what that word means. But she says show yourself. Cool as a sea cucumber, Ashoka Tano comes out with her sabers. They kinda do a stare-down. She spreads her arms and says I’ve been expecting you, the magistrate says. Then Ashoka says you know what I’m looking for, then. She says, you’ll learn nothing. Can I call her Tano or Ashoka? She says, you’re gonna learn nothing. This magistrate is much more of an authoritarian-type figure ‘cause she says well, the people I’m ruling over, they’re meaningless to me. Check this pollution out, by example. Means nothing to me. I’m just gonna make things worse for them. She goes well, it’s already pretty bad.
Surrender or face the consequences. Like, I don’t bargain with magistrates. She goes, you have one day to decide. She points at her with one of her lightsabers. Some really good acting, just facially, and close-ups. Then there’s this hired soldier-type. He says yeah, we’ll be ready when she comes back. There’s a couple droids. What else? We got one, ten, 100 robots and something…a prisoner, citizens mean nothing, surrender. Face the consequences, so there will be…be ready. Oh, this soldier dude has a high-neck something and a scarf. Then we see Chapter 13: The Jedi. He’s got a…yeah, it’s a…I don’t know. Then Oso and papi have a…is that what it says? Oso and papi convos, beacon? Let me see. There’s some heavy cuteness in this season. Oso’s up front watching. They see the planet.
This is the place Corvus detected a beacon. Also says cool, man. Gonna start the landing cycle. Oh, get back in your seat. Goes, no thanks, and then he hops down. Does he have to tell him twice? Oh, Oso’s checking out the ball. Oh, he says yeah, quit looking at this shiny stuff and get in your seat, man, before consequences. Don’t make me do it because I don’t thus far. This is my first parenting role. Oso climbs up on Oso’s seat and then he Force-moves the ball which I thought he had…I mean, I don’t…I gotta take Oso’s side on this because you would have thought…and Mandalorian would have learned, because I thought he gave it to him last season. But you know how particular Mando can be about rules and he probably says well, when I first learned to fly the Razor Crest, it had this knob here and I haven’t been to a knob shop, so it has to go back on there.
I mean, he is…he’s not a fundamental but he does take some things literally. But he’s gonna…he’s slowly unlearning that. Okay, get back in your seat. Oso wants the ball. Back in your seat. [00:30:00] Oso climbs up. Oh, also, and this is just a fact; when Oso’s concentrating, sometimes he does the kid’s concentration pooping face and that’s one of those moments. I don’t have a timestamp ‘cause it’s already passed ‘cause as usual, in a good way, I’m going slower than the episode. But he Force-moves the ball. We see more lava. Mando goes in on…oh, radar…oh, those radar detectors. I was wondering what those radar detectors were. You’ve seen them in all the movies. Occasionally when something flies over, they scan it. Maybe it’s checking the ship’s tags. Is that what they call them? The tags, right?
Then we see some dinosaur-type lumbering creatures eating trees. Mando and Oso…great sound effects and music, of course. I mean, it needs saying just ‘cause it needs saying, but it doesn’t need saying. Mando goes down. Oso sits down on the rope…or the ramp and starts playing with the ball, just like a kid. Wow, this is such good writing. Didn’t even think about it…just like…yes, I know we’re gonna go for a walk but I’d rather sit here and play with this new ball. I keep thinking about it. It was in my robe. Can’t stop thinking about it. I gotta sit down and play with it. I think that I may have taken that from one of my many non-published autobiographies. He says what are you doing with that? Never had dealings with a Jedi before. Yeah, there’s…the dialogue…the level of the…I mean, the Mandalorian…the broad strokes of the Mandalorian are revealed through conflict.
I mean, and action in the episodes. Then the kind of…I don’t…the Mandalorian’s relationship with Oso is kind of like this emotional connection we…you know. But his…what I connect with most is his mutterings and his inane…I love his inane conversation which…it’s not even expository. It’s just sweet, like…I don’t know, I think it has some examples but he says hey, I never had dealings with Jedi before. Let’s head into town, see what I could pick up. Here it is. Yeah, I wonder what to expect. So, he walks towards town. I don’t know, there’s some other ones I wrote down at some point. Then they see him from the ramparts, coming. The soldier comes. He’s a face character so Mando says yo, and he goes, what’s your business? Mando says, it’s all business. I’m looking for a layover. The dude says nice armor.
Is that a Baby Bjorn? He goes yeah, I’m hunting for something. The guy goes, are you in the Guild? Mando goes, last time I checked. But last time he checked, I think he was back in the…well, he didn’t check but Greef Karga said he was back in it last season. But they say, open the gates because obviously we’re gonna…this is our lucky day. I mean, that’s what the soldier’s thinking; no longer is it gonna be my rear end against this Jedi. This guy with his fancy armor, we can send him out. He has fancy pants if you consider armored pants fancy…I mean, if you consider armored pants…pants, plate armor, ‘cause technically you probably couldn’t say they’re pants. Then he goes through the town and that’s kind of like a palace town. It’s not looking great. There’s a lot of military occupation. It looks very poverty-stricken.
People are nervous. They don’t want to talk to Mando. He goes, of course, to talk…this gentlemen is helping two kids and Mando rolls up. He’s got Oso in the bag, though. He says, you there; need some information. Parents went away on a week’s vacation. Looking for somebody. The gentlemen that’s helping the kids says please, don’t talk to us. Don’t you know…? Then those two guards roll up and they say the magistrate wants to see you. Mando kinda looks at them. I guess they have masks on probably ‘cause of the pollution but the magistrate doesn’t, or the face dude. The hired mercenary, that’s the term. They kinda glare at the gentlemen who was helping the kids. They parade Mando to the inner palace walls or what I’m calling that.
We see some of the towns’ residents are on display and kind of in one of those…again, I guess they really love the TV show Survivor on some of these outer worlds because on TV…so, there’s a TV show Survivor. I didn’t see…but there’s a lot of famous people that like Survivor. This is one…I wonder if they could get Ozzy in one of these episodes or Rob from…I mean, Robin Wiggler would be the first two people. I’d say well, that’d be a nice paycheck for them to be in a episode of Mandalorian. But so, they’re…it’s one where you have to stand up the whole time on a thin platform. Magistrate, I guess for rewards or something, makes townspeople…and it’s unpleasant. I don’t know if…I don’t know what made me think of Ozzy.
I think one time Ozzy won and he did a back flip off of the stand ‘cause usually it’s above water. That’s all you gotta do. They’ve changed it though to where you have to stand on a pole now. Maybe that’s always been the way. This is the way of Survivor on Star Wars. It’s just like that but a little bit more steampunky. They say, this is not fun. Offer us a reward. Mando says, I’m…I don’t know what…Mando doesn’t say anything. He rolls in, they open the doors to the inner palace. He goes in. Let’s see, everyone else…oh, spur sound effects. Holy moly. Now, I didn’t track this because I’m not…I mean, what…I’m not even a…I like passively…in a positive, passive way love foley artists and sound effects artists. I greatly…they…so, there’s this spurs sound.
It goes through the whole series and I think it’s just something jingling on the Mandalorian’s…one of his many thingamajigs; straps or units or what…you know, things. His accoutrements. Can you imagine if I said, what…that would be good. I say well, is that…that’s…I like your accoutrements. I don’t even think he would say…I’m sorry. I’ve never met with a Jedi…do you have a point? I’d say well, what about this; shine your accoutrements, Mando…Mandalore, resident of former…possible resident of Mandalore. He’d say listen, kid, you don’t look like you actually have the attention to detail to shine Beskar armor. I’d say well, got me…I’d say well, there’s…I used to clean…help my dad wax his car, so you’ll have the best-looking Beskar.
I wonder if wax wouldn’t be good though for it because then the dust would just stick to it. But I could…that’s a job I’m willing to apply for. Oh, okay, so he goes in. Looking for a layover; pardon me. Oh, this is all…I’m behind on my notes ‘cause so many tangents. So, he goes into the inner palace walls or the…I mean, that’s…yeah, and there’s fish ponds. The magistrate is…she’s feeding the fish in a meditative way. There’s a little bit of a garden. Very peaceful. She goes, you Mandalorian? He goes, yup. I’m the Mandalorian. She goes, I got a proposition. He goes, my price is high. Not even what…she kinda walks…she really moves in the…she goes well, the target’s priceless. Jedi plagues me and I want…deal with it. He goes well, that’s difficult. She goes, you’re well-suited for it, pardon the pun. The Jedi are an enemy of Mandalore.
The Mandalorian goes well, my price is high. Then she reaches back and this droid comes and hands her a staff or, yeah, what is it called? Yeah, a staff. She goes, what do you make of this? He goes well, I don’t know; could I…that would be like the movie Airplane; like, make a bow? Like, make a smiley face. I can make…I could make it a dancing pole. [00:40:00] But he goes well, it’s well…this is all communicated without words; he does some…is well-balanced, very straight. It goes against his Beskar, makes a certain sound that confirms that it’s Beskar. She goes, pure Beskar, by the way, like your armor. She goes, deal with the Jedi, you can keep it. Oso peeks out at her, not sure about any of this. He hands it back to her and he goes, where do you find…where do I find this Jedi?
She’s got this proud look on her face, satisfaction. Mando gets walked out the gates by the mercenary-type guy and some soldiers. Apparently his name’s Lang which is interesting ‘cause we have Creed and Lang, Clubber Lang or something. I think that was…but anyway, they…the guy goes, what’s with that green thing? Mandalorian goes, I keep it around for luck. The guy just stares at him. He goes, you’re gonna need it where you’re headed. He stares at Oso too. Mandalorian walks off. The dude watches him walk off. Great set. I mean, great setting, holy cow. Walks off into the dust storm or the smoke and mist. Stares at Mando, keep it for luck, you’re gonna need it, Mando heads off, door closes, hills, smoke, burnt forest, weak light. Keep your eyes open, kid. Must be close.
This is some…there’s some good forest sounds. He gets his tail spun; false…telespun. I don’t know what that is. Let’s find out. He gets his telespawn, false alarm. Surprise, Jedi. So, he ducks under…he’s going up a gully. Ducks under a log. Keep your…this is when he says we must be close. Really looks like it was an…it still is a beautiful forest. You say well, probably not for the trees. The trees would not say it’s beautiful because…but he hears some rustling but it’s one of the dinosaurs or the dinosaur…correct, dinosaur-like figures. He sets Oso on a rock. Oh, uses his telescope. That’s what my…said; telescope. Looks like telesapan on my handwriting. I wrote; T-E-L-E-S-A-P-A-N. Then Ashoka Tano shows up. They have a little dance-off.
She’s very…she got some magnet things for holding her…on her back for holding her lightsabers which is cool. I would say they’re fairly evenly matched but in the end I think Tano would have Mandalorian just because I think she’s slightly more mobile on her own where he has his jet pack. I don’t think he’s…he’s not wearing it right now, one. But anyway, flip, fire, rope, nope, Mando, Ashoka Tano; Bo-Katan sent me. Then she goes, I hope it’s about this one. Then there’s some beautiful string music and then we see it’s night. Oh no, she looks…Oso sits up. Then it’s moon and night. Tano and Oso sit by a lantern. I mean, there’s some mind-blowing stuff coming up here. This is why you don’t…this is why I don’t read about stuff ahead of time. They reacted in much a way…I’m still getting used to it just like the Mandalorian is.
But just like Scoots, Mandalorian paces around. I pace probably thousands of steps a day. If I have a phone call and I’m not walking the dog, I’m pacing unless it’s a Zoom and I have to sit down because it’s on-camera Zoom. Let’s see, warming…Mando pauses. Oso makes purring noises. I don’t know what that word is, and tweets. Tweets? Scooter, man. There’s this giant moon. Oh yeah, he does tweet and coo. They say coo. She picks him up. Big smiles; picks him up. She turns, picks up the lantern, walks back to Mando and they sit. There’s some music; I don’t know if this is a new theme but I put is this a new piece of music? Is he speaking? Do you understand him? She says, in a way. This is excellent for me, at least, of how a Jedi would behave.
A little bit…not to the extreme of Yoda but answering in a riddly-like way, in ways that aren’t exactly riddles. I don’t know, but she…and she also captures the sense of bemusement. He says yeah, do you understand him? She puts her hands back under her cloak, even. In a way. Grogu and I can feel each other’s thoughts. That’s when I said, Grogu? Mandalorian says, Grogu? But oh, it’s just so good because then Oso looks at him, or Grogu. She goes, yeah. Mandalorian, in character…she goes, that’s his name. Mandalorian goes…Oso looks away, or Grogu, and he says Grogu. He turns back and makes a sound. She goes yeah, he was from a Jedi temple on Coruscant. Many masters trained him.
Then, this is another level, at least for me, of mind-blowing exposition because it’s like okay, so he is…I mean, we knew…I knew that Yoda was really old, like way more…like a whale…he’s got a whale’s lifespan or something or a sequoia or something like…I don’t know if Yoda was like 500, 900 years or even 300. I don’t know anything about Yodish beings’ development cycle but according to her, yeah, he was trained by many masters at the end of the Clone Wars. Ani Skywalker went bonkers and he doesn’t…he was hidden. Don’t know by whom or whom, she says. Someone took him. That’s it, that’s the last thing he remembers. Then I said wait a second, when did Mandalorian…? I said oh yeah, wait, he was in that town, that western town with dead-end walls, East Town Boys and West Town Girls.
But she says yeah, he was all alone. Only knew one other being like that, name of Yoda. He was a Jedi master. Got lost…she smiles. They get along. She goes, can he wield the Force? Oh yeah, this is a great dialogue. You mean his powers? Mando says. She goes well, it’s the Force that gives him the powers. It’s the energy created by living things. Takes a great deal of training and discipline to wield it. Oso starts dozing off and Mandalorian says I’ve seen him do things I can’t explain. My task was to bring him to a Jedi. She kinda looks. She thinks…a thoughtful look. Well, there’s no more Jedi Order. He goes yeah, there’s no more Empire but they’re still looking for him, so he needs your help. Oh, wow, that’s actually a popular and a powerful Star Wars point; someone needs your help. Do you answer the call, you know?
I mean, that’s how it all started. So, Oso thinks…she thinks on it and she even sighs. Grogu’s making some cute sounds. She goes well, let him sleep. I guess he’s talking in his sleep. I’ll give him a test in the morning. Moss…okay, so then it’s morning. Mossy area. Weak sun. She grabs a rock. Mando places Grogu down. She Jedi-Forces the rock in slow-mo to Grogu and she says, return the stone to me. We see the parental instincts of the Mandalorian even though he doesn’t give consequences. He is loving and nurturing. He says, he doesn’t understand you. Let’s see what else happens. He’s holding the stone right now. Looks at her. He doesn’t understand. She says, he does. Grogu says eh and she goes, it’s okay. He looks at her again. She goes, the stone, Grogu. He goes, kid, throw her the stone or something. He drops it.
She says huh, interesting. [00:50:00] It’s not a revolting development but I almost said that. She looks at Oso, holds his hand. Again, a lot of this is done in…she goes okay, wait, I sense some fear in you. Oso says, yeah. Then she gives another thoughtful look, stands back up. Walks off. She goes, he’s got…he’s had to hide out to get through all this; lay low. Try something else. You get over here. He goes, get over there, kid. She goes no, no; you. He goes yeah, he’s stubborn, man. She goes, you think he’ll listen to you? Oso looks at him. Mandalorian goes, that’ll be a first. I love that line though. I don’t know why. There’s a couple ones when she says oh, I hope it’s about this one over here and then she goes, I like firsts. I don’t know, it just had this really good touch to it.
So, she goes yeah, see if he’ll take the stone from you. Tell him to lift it up. Then we get the baseball kid and father moment or whatever, sports moment. But it’s really well-done. He says come on, kid. Come on, do it. Take the rock. You could do it. He goes yeah, see? See? Then he goes I told you, he’s stubborn. She goes, try to connect with him. Then they can’t make exact eye contact; Mando takes a breath, pulls out the old…the metal ball that he confiscated from him. He says, you want this, Grogu? Scoots, quit calling him Oso. I say well, I don’t know if I’m gonna possibly be able to do that but I’ll try. He says come on, you can do it. Then Oso does it…take the ball. For Mando, this is probably one of his most emotionally expressive moments. He almost dances around and he goes yeah baby, number one.
Good job, kid. Did you see that? That’s right. I knew you could do it. But it’s also very important…emotionally moment. Then she says well, he’s got an emotional attachment to you. Can’t train him. He goes, what do you mean? He goes, you’ve seen what he can do. She goes yeah, but he’s attached to you. That makes him vulnerable. He’s got a temper. He goes, that’s why you train him. She goes no, no, no, I dealt with somebody who had temper…a temper with tantrums and he was the best. She goes, I can’t start him down that path. Too tough. Better let his abilities fade away. She goes, by the way, I gotta get back to this village. Too much time. Mandalorian says oh, I’m supposed to catch you for them. Anyway, she thinks it out. He goes well, I didn’t agree to anything. He goes, I’ll help you if you help train Grogu.
Then she looks at Grogu. He looks at her. She looks back at the Mandalorian and then they do a screen wipe. Then they’re walking back. Says A335HK87, the droids, ex-military merc. Don’t understand. Let’s see, what does he…? This is I think the part that I had to pay more attention for. He goes yeah, you wouldn’t be able to do it on your own but together…I think that…let’s see, ex-military…yeah, combined, not even your laser swords will be able to protect you from all the firepower. She smiles. She goes, true enough. But don’t underestimate the magistrate. Mando goes, who is she? She…Beskar to deal with you. Tano, she crosses her arms. She says, Morgan Elsbeth. She had a tough time during the Clone Wars but her anger fueled an industry that helped build the Imperial Star Fleet. She plundered worlds.
She’s in the middle of plundering them…plundering this world right now. Mando says yeah, still in business even though it went over Scoots’ head. That’s what the smoke stacks in the trees are. Then she goes, is there any sort of strange TV show…reality TV show competitions going on on the show? He goes, yeah. He goes, at least a few of them, plus the rest of the people in the town are seriously on edge, even for me, and I’m always on edge. He goes, we can free them. She goes, Mandalorian and the Jedi? They’ll never see you coming. I don’t know who said that, actually. I also liked her wrist gauntlets. Free visages. Mandalorian and a Jedi; they’ll never see it coming. Then it’s night. We’re at the gate. There’s great music, lights, smoke stacks, guards, light buttons on the eats…walking.
I don’t know what that means. Is it her? Send the…it’s her; send the alarm. She jumps up on the ramparts and rings the bell. After it gets rung a few times…and she totally rolls up on them. I don’t know why…I mean, whoever that soldier was, the merc, he should have been…he’s not doing a great job. She does a great job of dealing with all the…and she cuts the bell in half. The bell drops once and then twice or technically four times ‘cause it’s two pieces. Then they’re just kind of on the main street like in a western-style showdown with the merc, the droids. The magistrate comes out. There’s wind, just enough wind and dust to make it dramatic. There’s the competitors and the challengers still competing. Then there’s a long street, Tano at one end, magistrate at the other.
Wind’s blowing cloaks and the lanterns, everything. Stare down back and forth. Tano starts to slowly walk down the street. No dialogue; it’s just pure…man, showing and not telling nothing. I mean, I’ve been telling you everything. She slow-walks. We see the one gentlemen that was helping the kids hiding out, kinda like oh boy, this is trouble. She gets within probably twenty feet of everybody, pauses, breathes in. Magistrate breathes in. She throws down the Beskar, one of the shoulder pieces of the bounty hunter. He failed, Mandalorian. Tell me what I want to know. Maybe this was their first attempt to say well, maybe she’ll just give up now and tell her what she wants to know. But she…the magistrate says nope, deal with it. Tano uses Jedi jump to jump out of the way, or Force-jump. Jumps on a roof.
They pursue her. There’s a great action sequence of her in the alleys of the town and them trying to catch her. Magistrate goes back into the office. She says don’t…no rewards for this challenge. She goes by the way, just give them all…then Mando shows up, saves the challengers with the gentlemen. They nod to each other and says hey, let’s set…we’ll attend this challenge and everybody gets a reward. They say, sure enough. Then we have back and forth of them trying to track Tano. Here’s the thing; don’t try to track a Jedi. Not a good idea. Not gonna work. But they don’t realize that. I don’t know if they necessarily have a choice. So, they’re trying to find her. She keeps popping in and out and pulling tricks on her…on them. At some point the HK…the droids got sent off by the merc guy.
He’s trying to find her but yeah, I mean, she’s totally…gets the lead on everybody. He starts to kinda get a little nervous. There’s the droids; they’re waiting. They’re talking to one another in some sort of robot talk, droid talk, excuse me. The merc sees everybody’s been tagged out by the Jedi and he sees her again. She actually disarms him, deals with one of the droids, turns it off, deactivates it in half. The other droid, he says get up on the roof. He grabs…he re-grabs [01:00:00] his thingamajig and meanwhile, Mandalorian gets everybody free from the Survivor game ‘cause they didn’t have a reward, so it wasn’t fair. Then we have another western showdown but this one is definitely straight out of a western. Mando and the merc, they look at each other.
For a second, Tano’s on the ramparts watching in the wind and then she drops down into the inner palace. Then we have…so he goes, you…so, you’re working with the Jedi. Mandalorian says yep, apparently I am. Then Tano goes in with the…what do you call it? This was a little bit like Tarantino-esque from one of the…movie with something…Not Friends with Bill. So, one of the scenes…a little bit reminded me of that. That took place in the snow. But they have a kinda face-off. They nod to one another. They both rip their cloaks off in very dramatic fashion; different ways ‘cause the magistrate had a cloak with arms. They get ready to go back and forth. It’s a slow build but very determined look on the magistrate’s face. Say yeah, I can plunder worlds and use the staff at the same time.
Watching it in mute, it’s even more cinematic. Holy cow, and gorgeous, just gorgeous. They go back and forth. You can see the Beskar and I’m sure it’s also a tiny bit of exposition. Oh, Beskar and lightsabers. Lightsabers can’t penetrate Beskar. They can probably get between where the Beskar is. That’s all I’d tell the Mandalorian, but…so, for the lead-up. Then we have Mando back with the merc. Mando says yo, and Clubber Lang says who do you think’s gonna win? Could be your side; could be my side. He’s still walking towards the Mandalorian, slow-walking which is like…the Mandalorian’s like dude, I wrote the book on all this so stop moving, please. You just hold it right there, I think he says. He even raises his hand. Mando’s ready. What he doesn’t know is the other droid’s kinda sneaking around.
Tano and the magistrate are going back and forth. It’s pretty good, pretty evenly matched for a while. There’s also…when Clubber Lang and Mando go back and forth, you can hear it in the background. He says yeah, far enough. Let’s see, Tano loses one of her lightsabers into the…a pond. Then Lang says you and I were a lot alike, willing to do it for the right cause. Mandalorian just doesn’t say anything and the guy says well, this is probably not the right cause, so I’m gonna lay this down and leave, walk away. As he says that, Tano finally bests…disarms the magistrate with a set of defensive moves, actually. He says okay, well, I’m gonna walk off. You win. Clubber Lang says that, though he’s not Clubber Lang ‘cause that was…Mr. T played Clubber Lang.
My brain slowly…took my brain, what, twenty minutes to access that part of it. But the dude’s really faking Mando out but he’s still…Mando’s like dude, you kidding me? Tries to get the drop on Mando. Mando takes him out. The gentlemen comes out and he says hey, look out behind you; there’s a droid. Mando says thank you, droid disposed of. That’s the end of that. Mando says, cool. Now, Ashoka Tano says where’s your master? To the magistrate. Grand Admiral Thrawn. A little bit…I know very little about Grand Admiral Thrawn other than in…before the prequels, so this is in the 90s? Timothy Zahn I think wrote three movies that came after the original three Star Wars movies, or wrote three books. I’m pretty sure I read all of them or maybe…and Grand Admiral Thrawn was a pretty big character in that, but I don’t really remember.
I haven’t reread those books or anything and now they wouldn’t be so much a part of whatever you call it; canon, because the movie…or maybe not. Maybe ‘cause those movies were…Luke was…I don’t know. But so, I don’t know if they are canon or not, to be honest. I don’t know enough about Star Wars, but…so, Grand Admiral Thrawn’s in those books. I guess that was my only point. She says, where’s Grand Admiral Thrawn? I think she says I don’t know. What does she say? ‘Cause…where’s Grand Admiral Thrawn? Oh, it just ends without us finding out. Then they walk out of the palace together. Next day, everybody’s cheering and citizens…we see the gentlemen was actually the leader of the town, so he gets reinstated as the leader of the town.
Tano says, this is your payment, the staff, to the Mandalorian. He says, I can’t accept it and do the job. She goes no, but it belongs with the Mandalorian. He slowly takes it and they hold it together for a second. He looks it up and down and she goes, where’s your little friend? He goes, back on the space ship alone, like where I always leave him. Hopefully he’s not putting anything in his mouth. I’ll go get him. It’s gonna be tough saying goodbye. He walks off. She thinks for a while and watches him walk off. Really some great thoughtful moments. The gentlemen who is now the leader of the town, he’s got his cloak back on. He comes out. She has…gives him a look and says well, let’s get back to this party. He nods and says kinda thank you with his eyes.
Mando gets back to the ship, takes off his jet pack, puts it…hooks it back up where it goes, sees Oso sleeping oh-so cutely. I said, is there…are you…is Grogu faking being asleep, like when you know someone’s…comes in and you pretend you’re asleep just to see what they’ll do? He says wake up man, it’s time to say goodbye. Grogu says, what? No, I’m still asleep. Just let me sleep, papa. He’s kinda rocking him side to side. Then he’s holding him, getting him dressed, I think. The ship’s open. We see a exterior shot, then he’s getting him really dressed. He says okay, let’s get this diaper changed, whole nine yards. Grogu’s like oh, what’s going on? Mando goes out. She goes, you’re like…Tano shows up. She says, you’re like a father to him. She goes, I can’t train him. Simple as that. Wind’s blowing. He goes, but you had a promise.
I kept my end of the promise. She goes yeah, you got me. Let me think. She holds his hand. She goes, there’s one possibility; take him to Tython. You’re gonna find the ruins of a temple there. Strong connection to the Force. There’s a seeing stone there. Set him down on the seeing stone. It’s on top of a mountain, and Grogu will choose his path. If he reaches out through the Force, there’s a chance a Jedi might come searching for him. Mando thinks about it. She goes then again, there aren’t many Jedi left. She crosses her arms. Oso says, hm. Mandalorian says thanks a lot. She goes, may the Force be with you. Mando turns around. She’s really, really…she watches him. Another thoughtful look. Grogu’s looking back at her. She smiles, nods her head. She says, he is oh-so cute. I could see why you’d call him that.
She nods again and grins. Backwards walks as the ramp goes up and they take off. Yeah, they get ready to take off or they do take off. She’s watching still and thinking. Then she turns again, looks again, and she walks off into the…back towards the palace through the trees. [01:10:00] There’s one more scene; that’s why I’m buying time. I think there’s…oh no, that was the end of the episode. Oh, wow. Thought there was one more scene but I guess that’s the next episode? Or was that…? Oh, that was the end of the last one, huh? Okay, so then we have the plates, like the kinda concept art. Grogu’s getting a lesson with Tano is plate one. Mando at the gate of the palace is gate…plate two. I call it plates ‘cause that was always a word I’ve always wanted to use from that…I had a big dinosaur book as a kid and it called all the paintings plates, so that’s why somebody might say why are you saying plates, Scoots?
Then there’s Mando and the magistrate is number three. Mando and Jedi going into town…yeah, Mando’s in the garden; that’s three. So, yeah, then Mando and Tano into town is four. Then it’s kind of in more of a dojo with the magistrate versus Tano; that’s five, then six is the Razor Crest landing or taking off. Then seven is Oso and Tano kinda talking at night. Then Tano versus the soldier is number eight. Nifty pollen and flowers; nine, eyes closed…oh yeah, Oso and falling pollen and flowers or smoke is nine and then Mando and Oso walking off into the sunset is ten. Classic. That’s the end of it. So, yeah, goodnight.
Hey everybody, this is Windy Marstrap. That’s Windy. Even though I get…Scooter says he gets a lot of e-mails saying Wendy because I guess some of you pronounce it Windy, Windy. Scooter says Windy but I’m Windy Marstrap. I say you could call me the Winster but I…no one does because I’m…they say, there’s Windy Marstrap and his dewy dew…his dewback, Dewy. My name’s Windy Marstrap. I am a resident of the world of Star Wars, what you would call Star Wars. I just call it home. Matter of fact, I don’t even call it home. I’m unaware I live…until I met Scooter, and luckily Scooter said that — and this blew my mind; I don’t even understand it — I’m controlled by some sort of mega-corp where it was different. He said thank goodness because he said if it wasn’t for how bad the Jets were doing, George R. R. Martin would…for something else.
He said, it’s different removing a character from his world. But don’t worry; Scooter has lots of resources for me. Actually, I live in my world. Scooter just takes me out to record these shows for all of you. He told me it’s all fiction so even what I’m saying now, I’m just acting, I think. I don’t know. Also, did I tell you I’m here with my dewy…my dewback Dewy? That’s my best friend and my pet, Dewy. But what I really love is telling you about the Star Wars world and what you should be visiting, and information about it and stuff you should know. So, I wanted to tell you a couple things that you might not know. One thing Scooter said is…was there someone called Dr. Mandible in the episode? I said Scooter, I’ll look it up for you. I have no idea. I said let’s see, Dr. Mandible.
I said Scooter, I’m looking while I’m talking because I don’t know. Is there a Dr. Mandible? There probably is a Dr. Mandible. Certainly nice to say. I know there’s other characters that Scooter’s aware of. Oh, the frog lady. That’s her official name. I guess one of the things Scooter was mixed up about…let me just tell you; there’s Galactic Basic which is the basic…she does…that’s what she didn’t speak, so that was one of the…and then they didn’t speak any other languages, but Galactic Basic was the main thing that you wanted to know and that you…you know, that…you know what I mean? That you would have wanted to know, that that’s how you communicate. Oh, I’m sorry, I got mixed up there. But yeah, I’m looking for other…oh, minor characters. Do you know, I’m not even a minor character.
Scooter says oh boy, am I a character. I’m looking up this Dr. Mandible. I guess Dr. Mandible did not…Wikipedia, Scooter said…well, Scooter told me…I don’t know. I don’t see anything about Dr. Mandible. Sorry, Scooter. He’s rolling his eyes. Now Scooter’s telling me that it was just a droid, that it was…Dr. Mandible was just a joke, he thinks, that Amy Sedaris had. There weren’t a lot of other characters in this episode. Let’s see; who else do we need to know? Trapper Wolf actually is I think one of the directors and leaders behind-the-scenes of the show. So, Trapper Wolf, Jib Dodger and Sash Ketter are the trio of New Republic X-Wing starfighter pilots. They looked up stuff in Chapter 6 of the first season and they showed up and dealt with a couple of the not-so-nice guys in that season.
Then Trapper Wolf and Carson Teva are in this episode as California Highway Patrol. I think all of them are played by directors of episodes, but Trapper Wolf was the one we were kinda looking at there. That’s another thing for Scooter to tell you about. So, I don’t know, I guess that’s a little bit to tell you about that episode. Now let’s go onto another episode. Oh, Mos Eisley. We covered that last time, right? Mos Eisley spaceport. Now, the next episode was called The Heiress and this probably does have…because you have Bo-Katan and that is something new that you probably want to know about. What else should I fill you in…? Koska Reeves and Axe Woves or something. I don’t know the other character’s name. Imperial remnants; that’s…and Mandalore comes up and then the dark sabre, so those are the kinda things I’ll talk about.
Bo-Katan; I don’t know how to pronounce Bo-Katan’s last name. K-R-Y-Z-E. Kryze. Kryze. One time I had too much at the…you know, I don’t…I’m not allowed in any cantinas first off because I want to bring…I say, I’m not gonna leave Dewy alone, my dewback. Well, I tried to ride Dewy…the first time I didn’t even realize Dewy couldn’t go in, then also I rode Dewy my dewback into the cantina in Mos Eisley, the famous one. I did bump my head quite a few times not just on the entrance but when Dewy was kind of unhappy with our reception. Also, Dewy got caught in the door for some time, so that…they were even more upset with that. Also, Dewy’s tail. But one time, I had…that was the time people were throwing their drinks at me because they were so upset because they couldn’t leave.
It was the day of some big event. I don’t know. I opened my mouth though, because I was talking; why are you throwing…? Their drinks were going in my mouth. I never had one of these drinks before. I felt creazy. That’s what made me think of that. Oh, but Bo-Katan is a…she’s on the Mandalorian group known as the Big Farm Watch during the Clone Wars, pre…they dealt with Darth Maul, the Night Owls, Maul…yeah, driven off of Mandalore, and Bo-Katan was a region of Mandalore but she refused to follow Emperor Palpatine. Clan Saxon got placed in power. She then sided with Clan Wren during the Mandalorian civil war. Believing she had lost that right, she accepted the dark sabre to lead her people once more, then she reprised her role in the second season. Oh, okay. So, that’s a little bit about Bo-Katan.
Koska Reeves…oh boy, this might be hard to find. I’m sorry about this, but a lot of scrolling. Koska Reeves…well, we’ll skip it ‘cause…and Axe Woves work with Bo-Katan, so they’re part of the Children of the Watch maybe? Oh no, that’s what the Mandalorian was. What about…Imperial remnants is a term I’ve never heard of before. The most successful…this is after the…[01:20:00] most successful remnants of the Empire reform as the First Order. This is after this, though. They’re still the remnants in the future in a galaxy long, long ago and far away, but in the future there. It’s kinda…even though I’m acting and this is fiction or Scooter tells me that, I say you mean I’m in a dream? He says, it’s really hard for me to process things when I’m in the future and the past on and off and far, far away.
