The Mandalorian: Chapter 12 ‘The Siege’ Review

In this weeks episode, the quest to find the home planet of The Child continues, as The Mandalorian and The Child are reunited with old allies Greef Karga (Carl Weathers) and Cara Dune (Gina Carano) and his prisoner from the very episode of season 1, The Mythrol on Nevaro.

In the latest instalment we see The Mandalorian and his allies aim to destroy near-by rebel base, little do they know there is more than meets the eye. Upon arriving on Nevaro, Razor Crest is taken for repairs and Mando is rejoined with his allies. The Child is reluctantly put in protection by Mando in a school after he is recruited for the mission, and I must say the scene is extremely cute!

The group then re-introduce The Mandalorian to an old prisoner of his, The Mythrolmn from the first ever episode. It appears during the clean up of Nevaro he was employed to help as part of a sentence.

After the group break into the base, some harrowing information is unveiled. The crew believed the base to be military operations but they couldn’t have been more wrong. After watching a pre-recorded message from Dr. Pershing to Moff Gideon, explaining that they had been transfusing the blood of The Child and revealing high M-Count, confirming presence of the force. Mando then flies back to Nevaro to retrieve the Razor Crest and The Child whilst the rest steal an imperial cruiser and leave the base in their tracks.

The episode ultimately ends with The Mandalorian and The Child heading to Corvus to track down Ashoka Tano, The New Republic arrive to investigate the incident and Captain Teva attempts to recruit Dune to The New Republic, but after her home world of Alderaan is mentioned she explains that after it’s demise she lost everything and he leaves. An imperial officer goes to Moff Gideon and explains that one of the mechanics working on the Razor Crest successfully installed a tracking device.

Personally I think this episode was fantastic. It was only 39 minutes so it didn’t drag too much, providing some brilliant action sequences and a pesky cast member lurking in the background (About 18 minutes in!).

On next weeks episode, ‘The Jedi’ it is expected we are introduced to Rosario Dawson’s Ashoka Tano and we are given the best episode yet!
