    "I gotta get one of those." Awesome. Pretty predictable but still a fun episode. Like others, I wish these most recent episodes were longer but I'm really enjoying the show. And "baby Yoda" is too cute for words.

    That baby Yoda will make Disney so much money on sale of the toy ... May even eclipse profits from Disney+.
    The fight at the end was awesome.

    That was great. Predictable but great. The other Mandolorians flying in like that was something I've wanted to see live action since The Holiday Special/TESB.

    I think this one was better than 2nd.

    I was waiting to hear The Rocketeer theme at the end as the other Mandalorian flew up and saluted him. :D

    I agree....I’d really like episodes to be double length and flesh more out in each one, but still very enjoyable.

    I want to be a Mandalorian when I grow up. As others have posted, it was very predictable that Mando was going back for Baby Yoda. I didn't see the Mandalorian cavalry rescue coming though.

    I got a chuckle when the Mandalorian shot a couple of bad guys off rooftops like in every western known to man.

    The Imperial Stormtroopers must go out of their way to recruit the dumbest future soldiers they can find. I kept wondering why Mando didn't just disintegrate the storm troopers instead of using his "conventional" weapons.

    Why bother? They're frickin' Storm Troopers! He could have taken them out with a broken can opener. :D

    Is that the storm troopers can’t hit a human sized object a few feet away from them established canon or was this episode an homage? ;)

    I'd use the old joke that they must have attended the Imperial Storm Trooper School of Marksmanship, but in this case it would be redundant! ;)

    I'm not even sure why storm troopers wear armor - they go down from a single hit.

    TFA sort of made it canon when Rey telling him to hand her a wrench or something and Finn was grabbing the wrong tool repeatedly.

    ??? How does one Storm Trooper janitor's lack of knowledge about tools extrapolate to all Storm Troopers not being able to hit the broad side of a barn?

    She was pointing and he was not tracking her pointing to the tool she was pointing to. :)

    Any thoughts on who the parents are? I've see all screen films, but was there a Mrs Yoda in one of the TV shows?

    Why did Mando refer to Baby Yoda as his enemy?

    Because that makes what he did more acceptable...

    No Mrs since Jedi were forbidden to marry. The only other one of Yoda’s species that I know of is Yaddle.

    He considered himself baby Yoda's enemy at that point because he turned him in for the bounty. The baby helped him because he thought they were on the same side. That's why he said the baby didn't know they were enemies.

    Yaddle was a female of their species. She was a member of the Jedi Council in The Phantom Menace, but didn't appear in either of the other two prequels or in any episodes of the Clone Wars cartoon.

    At this point, there isn't enough information about the child to know if he is any relation to Yoda or Yaddle. All we know is he's about 50 years old, which would make him roughly the same age as Anakin/Darth Vader was. That's also around the same time that the clone army started being built.

    We also know that he is strong with the Force, but that doesn't tell us anything either since it just might be a characteristic of their species.
