Andor Episode 8 Release Date, Time and Plot Preview
**Warning – Spoilers ahead for Andor**
The rebels’ heist in Aldhani has sent shockwaves across the Empire this week in Andor, and just as Cassian thought he had escaped it all, he’s landed once again in dire straits. We look ahead to preview Episode 8 and to confirm the release date and time.
Episode 7, titled Announcement, saw Cassian return home to Ferrix to offer a way out for Maarva and B2EMO, who both decided to stay and fight instead of running away. Mon Mothma put a plan in motion to gain a banker as one of her allies, Karn found a new job that was willing to overlook his previous dismissal, and the entry concluded with Cassian receiving a six-year sentence on Niamos as the ISB raises their sentences across the galaxy.
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 8 Preview
The big question going forward is: How will Cassian escape his six-year sentence on Niamos?
Surely Luthen will get wind of his arrest, via Vel’s search, and bail him out, perhaps using the help of the K-2SO we know becomes an ally by the time Rogue One comes around.
We may also hear the outcome of Mon Mothma’s proposal to her friend and banker Tay Kolma and if he’ll authorize discretion while she removes her funds for the rebellion.
