Star Wars fans have been divided over their opinion on season 3 as a whole, but this week’s Chapter 23 may have won everyone over. We introduce you to Charles Parnell, The Mandalorian’s survivor captain, and discuss the cast of season 3 episode 7.
This harrowing penultimate episode also returned the elite Praetorian Guards from The Last Jedi fame, during the episode’s emotional beat.
Created by Jon Favreau for Disney Plus and starring Pascal as the titular bounty hunter, The Mandalorian follows Din Djarin who is hired to track down a child known as Grogu – more commonly Baby Yoda – but ends up doing everything he can to protect him from Imperial forces.
