The Mandalorian season 3’s eighth episode is equal bits suspenseful as it is intriguing

Din Djarin is back with his clan but they have been facing trouble. To what extent will he help them re-build?
The Mandalorian, this time, begins with where the last episode ended – with Axe Woves and Bo-Katan fighting Moff Gideon in their respective ways – the Mandalorian way.
Stormtroopers continue wrecking havoc. Unfortunately, their scenes get cut short.
Din Djarin (originally played by Pedro Pascal) is at his weakest, when he shows his true strength. This Mandalorian is saved by none other than Baby Yoda aka Grogu. He has an on-point entry this time.
Giancarlo Esposito as Moff Gideon is very much in his element. His pokerface dialogues absolutely prove his talent as an actor.
R5 the droid ends up being awesome. He will remind you of C3PO and isn’t as annoying either.
Simon Kassianides as Axe Woves makes a dashing entry, even if it isn’t his first scene in the episode. The thing with the Mandalorians is, they all try to be too much of a hero and he isn’t too far behind in proving he’s a Mandalorian too.
The visuals in the series are once again very much a delight to watch. The fight scene between Din and Moff, not so much. Bo-Katan vs Moff, on the other hand, is a delight to watch. It is almost a visual spectacle, Star Wars style. Din and Grogu also give memorable moments in that.
The story gets intriguing half-way through the episode. Katee Sackhoff makes an appearance as Bo-Katan much later but is quite impressive. The scenes that follow keep you at the edge of your seat constantly.
Din, Bo-Katan and Grogu are in the midst of a very commercial scene and oh, does it work well! Of course, Grogu and Din have a moment even as the madness comes to an end.
The Mandalorian season 3 comes to a good ending. A commercial ending but very much watchable. Do watch this episode.
