The Mandalorian brings the Child to the Seeing Stone

Back at his ship, the Mandalorian and Grogu are bonding over a game of Force-catch. Our bounty hunter is pretty upset about leaving him, but he makes Grogu promise to go with the Jedis once they find him.

Because he can’t train him he says. Grogu is too powerful. The Mandalorian takes him down to the “Seeing Stone” on the other planet but nothing is happening. Then, they hear a ship approaching and it looks eerily similar to Boba Fett’s.

The Mandalorian tries to tell Grogu they need to leave, but he’s already connected to the stone. The Mandalorian heads away from the Stone to buy them time, and, turns out, it is Boba Fett’s ship. He explains the armor the Mandalorian found on Tatooine was his father’s.

Plus, he knows that a lot of people want the Child. Fennec Shand, from season 1, has a gun set on Grogu, who is still on the stone. They all put their weapons down and talk.

Boba Fett is back

Boba Fett says all he wants is his father’s armor and in exchange, they’ll help to keep the Child safe. It goes against the Creed, the Mandalorian explains, but they’re interrupted by another ship that’s flying overhead. The Mandalorian agrees and runs for Grogu. The others kill the squad of stormtroopers who just landed. 

It’s going well for a while, but then a second ship full of stormtroopers lands. Grogu is still connected to the stone, so he Mandalorian heads down to protect him and fight with Boba Fett, who grabbed his armor from the Mandalorian’s ship, and Fennec. 

They finally get rid of all the stormtroopers when a shot comes out of the sky, seemingly from nowhere, and completely destroys the Mandalorian’s ship. The Mandalorian’s first thought of Grogu, who he left alone. On that ominous ship, Moff Gideon asks if the “dark troopers” are engaged.

The Empire is back, too

Four “Dark Troopers” deploy and it’s not looking good for the Mandalorian, who is too far away from the Child to protect him. They grab the Child and start flying back to their ship. Not to worry, though, Boba Fett went in his ship to shoot them down. 

No, the Mandalorian tells him, don’t hurt the Child. Instead, Boba Fett does a loose follow to see where they’re going. He tells Fennec and the Mandalorian that the Empire is back.

The Mandalorian looks through the wreckage of his ship and finds Grogu’s favorite ball, the beskar spear, and that’s pretty much it. The Mandalorian says that their debt is pretty much paid up so they can go if they want. Boba Fett says no, though, he promised the safety of the Child, so that’s what they’ll do. 

The Mandalorian heads back to find Cara Dune. Now a New Republic officer, she helps him look up a prisoner named Migs Mayfeld. She’s a little apprehensive about helping him because of her new position, but when she learns that they have the Kid, she’s on-board. 

Meanwhile, Moff Gideon checks on the Child to find him using the Force on two stormtroopers. They put him to sleep and Moff Gideon declares that they have their donor. The last thing viewers see is poor sleeping Grogu in handcuffs.
