Great episode! Mando was in full dad mode, although he's obviously still learning, because I had to question his decision of letting the baby follow him in the woods. Who knows what big bads were living there that could have lept out and eaten him! Also, baby Yoda has a lot of stamina; walking that distance with his tiny legs. 😊
I love that we got to see more of the baby's personality, as well as Mando's. And Cara referring to the baby as Mando's kid, and Mando not correcting her, hit me right in the feels. I'm gonna cry if they eventually have to part.
Mando had a girlfriend for a hot second! I'm hoping that when the show eventually ends, the last scene is him returning to the planet to settle down. Although I love seeing him kick ass, you could totally tell that he was yearning for a simpler life. He shouldn't have to fight and kill his entire life.
I'm also glad that they finally explained that the Mandos do take off their helmets. I'm confused though because I thought they could have families. Does that mean that they never show their face to their wives or children?
I also loved seeing Cara kick his ass. So far, she's been the only one to really give him some trouble. I was worried when I first read that they cast Gina, because I had only seen her in the Fast and Furious 6, where her acting was very wooden. But she did much better here. And her character even elicited the first laugh from Mando (right after they took down the AT-ST)!
Since we don't know how the trackers work, I'm going to assume it somehow tracks their DNA or something injected into their bloodstream that can't be removed. If it was an implanted chip, people could just have it removed easily.
