Disney Plus: The Mandalorian Episodes 4 And 5 Synopses Revealed

Please let IG-11 return to the show.


While Episode 3 of The Mandalorian just debuted on Disney+--and it's the best one of the series so far--we already have a good idea of what's coming up for the bounty hunter in the coming weeks, thanks to the synopses reveals.

Next week, we'll get to see Cara Dune--played by Gina Carano--for the first time in Episode 4, which arrives on November 29. The official synopsis reads, "The Mandalorian teams up with an ex-soldier to protect a village from raiders." The ex-soldier more than likely refers to Dune. At this time, she has yet to be introduced in the series, so we do not know anything about her.

On December 6, Episode 5 of The Mandalorian arrives, and the synopsis reads, "The Mandalorian helps a rookie bounty hunter who is in over his head." Anyone else hoping for the return of IG-11? There isn't much to go on there, but we don't think it's Giancarlo Esposito, who is playing Mof Gideon, as the one image we've seen of him makes him look like he's working for the Empire.

While The Mandalorian has been an exciting adventure so far, it's coming to an end sooner than you think. The season finale will air on Disney+ on December 27. Luckily, the show has been renewed for a second season. Beyond that, it will be a two month wait for the next TV show entry for the Star Wars universe when Clone Wars Season 7 arrives to the streaming service in February.
