The Mandalorian: 12 Things You Might Have Missed In Season 2, Episode 6, "The Tragedy"
Find out what "The Tragedy" is (and more) in our breakdown of The Mandalorian Season 2, Episode 6.
Things sure are happening on The Mandalorian. In Season 2, Episode 6--Chapter 14, AKA "The Tragedy"--Mando and Grogu (yes, we have to call him that now) arrived at the ancient Jedi temple on Tython, got ambushed by Boba Fett, and fought a bunch of extremely dumb stormtroopers.
And that's pretty much it! This was an episode jam-packed with action, with very little plot. Besides Boba Fett's admittedly exciting arrival, there isn't much else to discuss. Let's get into it, then check out our breakdowns for the previous Season 2 episodes:
1. "The Tragedy"
The episode is called "The Tragedy." Since nobody actually dies in the episode, we can only assume this is a reference to the Tragedy of Darth Plagueis the Wise--not a story the Jedi would tell you.
2. Slave 1
Boba Fett arrives in his iconic ship, Slave 1. The ship's first appearance was in Empire Strikes Back, and it's had many appearances over the years, including most recently (we believe) on The Clone Wars.
3. Grogu Meditates
As Grogu sits on the seeing stone, we see him meditating like many Jedi before him throughout the franchise. Force-sensitive beings used meditation to make it easier to connect to the Force with a clear mind.
Also, note the blue butterflies - this may be a stretch, but it could be a reference to Ben Solo. In the official YouTube series Star Wars Roll Out, it showed that Ben Solo was also connected to blue butterflies.
4. Boba Fett
Boba Fett is the mysterious character played by Temuera Morrison at the end of Chapter 9. He's been tracking Mando to get his armor. It turns out he survived the Sarlacc pit, after all.
Also, when we first see him this episode he's armed with a gaderffii, or gaffi stick, a melee weapon of the Tusken Raiders.
5. He Said The Line
The line "I'm a simple man making his way through the galaxy, like my father before me" is a callback to a scene between Jango Fett and Obi-Wan on the planet Kamino in Attack of the Clones.
6. Fennec Shand
Ming-Na Wen's character returns from Season 1. The last time we saw her was in the Season 1 episode Chapter 5, when an unseen person saved her. It turns out it was Boba Fett.
7. RIP Razor Crest
Didn't this thing just get repaired?
8. Dark Troopers
It's confirmed that the army of suits shown at the end of Chapter 12 were Dark Troopers, which we see in action here. While there are currently multiple phases of Dark Troopers in canon, these appear to be Phase 1. The name was first introduced in the video game Star Wars: Dark Forces, which is now considered non-canon in Star Wars. They've since appeared in over half a dozen video games, including the Battlefront series.
10. Jango Fett's History
We learn Jango Fett was a foundling like Din Djarin, who was adopted into the Way of the Mandalore. Boba Fett also tells Din that his father fought in the Mandalorian Civil Wars. In Clone Wars, Almec haid said Jango wasn't a Mandalorian, but perhaps this was just a slight against foundlings.
11. Searching For Migs
Mando asks Cara for help finding Migs Mayfeld. Mayfeld is Bill Burr's character from Season 1. The last time we saw him was Chapter 6, in a jail cell.
