The Mandalorian Season 2 Episode 4 FULL Breakdown

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...

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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?".

    I always feel that this channel reaches to connect things, especially old school, non-canon EU/Legends stuff, ignoring what is said within the episodes. First, Rise of Skywalker, lacking in content as it was and all supplemental information stated that the Sith cultists produced the clones of Snoke and Palpatine, not the Empire/First Order. The First Order didn't even know about Palpatine. So, with what was said in the Mando episode - these are volunteers and injected (stated by the exposition from the hologram in the actual episode), not clones....those looks like bacta tubes, not cloning tubes from RoS. Just saying, this falls WAY more in line with the Reborn from Jedi Outcast and the Dark Troopers. Stormtroopers that have volunteered to be "enhanced" and would lead to someone like Moff Gideon wanting to be enhanced with the midicolorians, i.e. him becoming more powerful.

    I have some hope that if it indeed is cloning Palpatine that is the reason for the Empire to hunt the child, the Empire will not succeed in doing so. I want this to be one giant ‘screw the audience’ (or bless the audience, really) where they hint that all of this will tie into the sequel trilogy with Snoke and Palpatine’s return; that the conclusion of the Mandalorian in season 3 or 4 shows the child recaptured by the Empire and meant to be used in a plan to resurrect Palpatine - but then, last minute, Mando and all the other characters we follow (Ahsoka, Bo Katan, maybe Luke) will rescue the child and destroy the last remnants of the Empire and Palpatine’s last hope of returning. Think about how great a twist that would actually be: The fans who care about Star Wars despise the sequel trilogy with all their heart and seeing the Mandalorian retconning it within its storyline would be the best twist in Star Wars since ‘No, I am your father’. Then the sequels will be nothing more than a ‘What if’ scenario if Mando and friends fails to protect and save the child. The perfect ending to the series, especially since EVERYBODY will expect it to play out differently by then. Of course I know this won’t happen... those who know what Star Wars needs sadly aren’t the ones in charge.

  75. Blackstrat41


    Kun oldin

    Theory: I think the show is trying to elude to the idea that the facility was trying to successfully clone a force sensitive for Palpatine and it was under the control of Palpatine. It probably was once under Palps control pre - ROTJ. It is a red herring. in this time period it has been converted to what I believe to be a clone project of the remnant Empire under the order of Gideon/Those higher ranked we have not seen. The Emperor is in the shadows as always. Allowing others to do his work through his careful planning and manipulation. Only a small few know he lives. Gideon wants to create a force sensitive army or his own "Vader"/enforcer. We may find that later down the line, Palps simply uses the leftover clones for his use as Snoke. Thus making Snoke a desperate last ditch effort kinda like he seemed in the sequel trilogy. This allows the show to work around the sequels and kind of in a round about way add back story. Just a Theory!
