    If the baby was his enemy, then turning it over to the mad scientists is OK.

    Otherwise, he turned a baby over to mad scientists.

    Mandalorians and Jedi had many wars, and in last war Jedi destroyed their homeworld, Mandalore itself. One reason for beskar steel is it could withstand a lightsaber hit.

    I'm assuming Mando realized the child is a Jedi, hence he was aided by the enemy.

    I'm not sure why you're generalizing a Force-user as being a Jedi. I think there's a certain group of Sithlords who would beg to differ...

    I"m not generalizing - i am assuming Mando is the one who thinks that the child is a Jedi. And that's why he responded the way he did. I suppose one can say that mandalorians view all force-users as the enemy, but it was the Jedi that they had their wars with.

    I didn't really understand why they helped him. That's going against their code, isn't it? Or the code of bounty hunters, or whatever?

    They're not bounty hunters.

    They're Mandalorians, with their own code.

    I thought Mando was referred to as a bounty hunter by someone/thing in an earlier episode. I could be wrong, but it would be the first time since the 20th century...

    Mandalorians aren't (all) bounty hunters. Thus, they are not tied to the bounty hunter code.

    Mando is a bounty hunter.

    The main character on the show is a bounty hunter. The other Mandalorians who come to his defence at the end are not bounty hunters.

    Why were the other Mandalorians reduced to skulking in the cave? I thought I heard one grumble before/during the Mando-Heavy Infantry Mandalorian rumble that only one at a time was allowed on the surface.

    Is the Mandalorian's name really Mando or is that just a nickname?

    Good series, episodes are too short and too long in between. Drop the series on one date like Netflix!!!

    I think this show is helping to explain that. The materials needed to make blaster-proof armor are expensive and difficult to obtain; even the Empire couldn't afford to outfit an entire army with it. What the stormtroopers wear is more for show, to make them seem intimidating and invulnerable.

    What the stormtroopers wear is more uniform than armor.

    "This is the way" can now join "I have spoken" as two great quotes to come from this series. Two quotes from only three shows is good show/quote ratio!!

    Fascinating, then I get to the next-to-last paragraph and wonder if I'm being punked. :)

    "One downside is that the displays used in Stagecraft require liquid crystals that take several years to grow. “It’s quite a process,” Kennedy said. Growing and maintaining these crystals, which are the backbone of LCD (liquid crystal display) screens, can be expensive and time-consuming, perhaps complicating the attempts of other companies to adapt the technology."
