I really wish that this had been the only episode in the entire series where Mando revealed his face. The scene was impactful but would have been even more so if it'd been the only time we'd seen Mando do it. And if they couldn't do that, than they at least shouldn't have had him reveal his face in the previous episode, especially since it was for the most nonsense reason.
I would like to believe that the baby and Mando will be reunited next season, but Disney has done such a crap job of handling Star Wars (and I say this as someone who's just a casual fan of the franchise) that I'm not holding my breath. I mean, they obviously didn't think that Baby Yoda was going to be a thing in the first place, or they would have had the merchandise ready to go for Christmas a week after the show premiered. And I have no interest in watching a show centered around Boba Fett so if that's what this becomes, instead of Boba getting his own spin off series, then I'm out.
That being said, I did enjoy the episode. The Dark Troopers freaked me the hell out because I find unstoppable killer robots scary (in part because people in real life keep on trying to perfect that technology and every time I see some video on youtube of some new advancement in robotics I'm all, "Did these people not watch Terminator?") and I thought the Dark Saber twist was interesting. And I was happy Luke showed up just because my husband (who was way into Star Wars in middle school, reading all the books back in the mid-90s) was slowly freaking out as he realized that that was indeed Luke Skywalker and not some fake out with a random jedi. He was getting more and more excited as they showed each clue to it being Luke (the x-wing, the green light saber, the one gloved hand) but when they showed a close up of the light sabre handle (which, like Harry Potter wands, are all unique, apparently), he went into full blown nostalgia fan boy. Very cute to watch. :)
