Quoted from benheck:
Well in the previous episode they had that big flashback with Hairy Guy fixing up the droid. That was the setup, and episode 8 was the payoff.
It's almost as if Mandolarian follows classic story structure and isn't a giant mess like the films!
Yes, agree and thought it was well done.
Also thought it very cool that he finally gets a jetpack like the other Mandelorians. I was kinda wondering why that was missing.
And wasn't that a darksaber that Gus Fring uses to cut himself out of the tie fighter, which is an ancient mandelorian weapon?
