**Warning – Spoilers ahead for Andor**
For fans confused as to why Andor was labeled a heist series at its core, Episode 4 of the Disney Plus prequel series now reveals the wider scope of the rebels’ pilferage with Cassian on board, and we look ahead to preview Episode 5.
Episode 4 titled Aldhani picked up right where Episode 3 ended with Luthen and Cassian escaping Ferrix and the former continues his recruitment plea. With Cassian on board for a 200,000 credit payment, we’re introduced to the rest of the rebels on Aldhani and hear their plan to steal the Imperial’s payroll. Elsewhere, we are reintroduced to Mon Mothma and her secret alliance with Luthen and the other rebels.
Created by Tony Gilroy for Disney Plus, Andor is a prequel series to Star Wars spin-off Rogue One, returning Diego Luna as Cassian Andor. Set five years before the Jyn Erso-led project, Andor also stars Genevieve O’Reilly, Stellan Skarsgård, Adria Arjona, Denise Gough, Kyle Soller, and Fiona Shaw.

Episode 5 Preview
The main question on everyone’s mind is: Will Cassian manage to memorize the Aldanhi phrasebook by morning?
Andor’s against the clock to catch up with the rebels’ plan to shake down the Imperials, and with less than three days to go, Episode 5 could be all systems go.
We’ll see the extent of Cassian’s learning curve and ability to play nice with the others before the Eye of Aldhani takes place, and there are bound to be a few complications down the line.
Elsewhere, a deflated Officer Karn will be settling in with his mother and we’ll likely see the extent of that touchy relationship.
Additionally, Mon Mothma was on rocky waters with her husband Perrin during Episode 4 and we’re bound to see how that dinner party plays out with egotistical politics driven into the room.
