OK, I just binged the first three episodes - so many SWU questions. Was Jango Fett a Mandalorian? I thought it was the Empire that wiped out the Mandalorians, not the Jedi. Why were they at war with the Jedi? What happened to "We're keepers of the peace, not soldiers?" The small squad of Mandalorians at the end seemed pretty formidable. Granted, they were fighting bounty hunters, who don't generally work as a team. But it seems like an army of Mandalorians would be pretty difficult to wipe out, don't you think? Is there something I should watch/read to provide a frame of reference? I've never watched any of the shows before, just the movies. Also, specific to this episode - when he was trying to escape with the baby, what triggered the first "blast" which exposed his position to the Stormtroopers? I rewatched the scene 3 times - the 2 STs enter the door, he backs up to hide, and then there is a blast that alerts the STs and they start firing. But they are not looking in his direction or firing their weapons.
