Mandalorian Season 3 Episode 6 is a weird one. It’s a lot of fun, even if the cameos form Jack Black and Lizzo were distracting–but the genre droid detective story in Star Wars was a lot of fun. We’re joined by Heather Antos and Paul Tweddle from Heavy Spoilers to give their thoughts.

Heather Antos:

#Mandalorian #StarWars #Episode6

I’m going to talk about 3 things: the story, the cameos, and the dark saber. I think casual fans of star wars are going to like the most basic story here, with Din and Bo-Katan solving mysteries at Epcot Center. It follows a familiar trope that we’ve seen in shows like Law and Order or true detective.

A buddy cop show where two law enforcement officers go on various occasions, interviewing witnesses and suspects who are in the middle of their daily lives, until an autopsy finally reveals the final truth. It was also provided brilliantly in the community. [clip].

Even though these tropes are so well-worn, it was fun to see them in star wars. It felt like more of a return to season 1, where episodes delved into genres like a Kurosawa films, westerns, and jailbreaks. Star Wars has always combined genres like samurai, westerns, fighter pilot action movies, war epics, and political thrillers–into one saga. It’s why it’s so successful, it’s familiar and new, more stipended in nostalgia than a baseball game.

So for this episode, Christopher Lloyd’s motivations were a bit unclear but who really cares? It was a fun cameo because he was able to disappear in a role. Even though Christopher Lloyd is mostly known for playing Doc Brown in Back to the Future, he can play other roles, and it’s not a distraction.

Whereas Lizzo and Jack Black were major distractions, who were mostly playing themselves. Jack Black is great, very talented–and he excels at playing people who act exactly like Jack Black. Even in the sedated and underrated rom-com The Holiday, you can’t separate the actor from the role. [clip]

Doug: But major movie stars have shown up in star wars before. Liam Neeson, Harrison Ford, Woody Harrelson…

Forest Whitaker, yes I know. But those actors disappeared into their roles. But Jack Black is a presence. It’s like if Barack Obama or Donald Trump showed up in a Star Wars movie–they would take you out of the world.

Doug: like Ed Sheeran in Game of Thrones.

Exact;y. And lizzo is just lizzo. She’s great, but she’s always gonna be Lizzo. But here’s the thing, I didn’t mind these cameos that much. They set a tone for the episode, that it was going to be fun. Star Wars are supposed to be fun and goofy at times. We can have dark melodrama in the same universe where Han acts like a goofball [him blowing on Ewok fire.

But, what’s harder to forgive is how this episode has totally fumbled the storyline about the Mandalorians.

Doung: Fumbled I say! There will be a reckoning! A total sum!

Hey, easy buddy. Space wizards. But let me explain. The season 2 finale did an amazing job of setting us up for a new season. Grogu was with Luke Skywalker. Din Djarin had just accidentally become king of Mandalore by winning the dark saber in combat–like Arthur accidentally pulling the sword from the stone.

This seemed to be setting up a conflict between him and Bo Katan, or his sect against Bo Katan’s sect.

And on top of that, he took off his helmet and was no longer on the same religious path.

And then, one by one, each of these awesome plot points was peacefully resolved. Din was reunited with Grogu in the book of Boba Fett. [clip]
